The public address system at my local Wally World was announcing that anybody who wanted to get the free Kung Flu vaccination, to go over the pharmacy. No lines and no waiting times.
No idea how many responded (I was on my way out on the other side) but I found it funny that we went from OMFG-DEATH-IS-UPON-US! to “Attention K-Mart Shoppers…”
In the meantime at the other side of the world:
Australia’s second most populous state Victoria will enter a seven-day lockdown to counter a fast-spreading outbreak in its capital, Melbourne.
The lockdown will begin at midnight on Thursday (14:00 GMT).
Authorities have so far found 26 cases, and identified 150 sites where people may have been exposed to the virus.
They are fully in the clutches of Pandemic Fear Porn.
