A very good source said that Cyril will announce an extension on the last Sunday of the lock down...lets see
I dont think many business's can survive past that mark.
We will see anarchy and people starting to try and make a living.
What are your choices - stay at home and starve to death or face whatever measures the gvmt puts in place to try and control things.
People will start to get desperate when there's no food on the table.

It works well in Europe where they have social payouts,

but where are we going to get the money to feed the job less and bankrupt small business.

If they do not make payouts, I am sure we will have uprisings.

Well lets see how it goes, pray we do not starve more guys then we save from corolla

Be strong guys and see you all with smiles on the other side.

Borders are now completely closed.
Any citizen outside of the country at midnight tonight is not allowed back in until after the lockdown is over and the borders reopen.
So I'm pretty much an exile at the moment.
Hoping to extend my work contract to stay onboard the boat.

Thats a bum one Tony, hope you come right to stay on the boat,

Nows not the time you want to be in a hotel or displaced persons center.

Be careful

We might be working through the 21 days if my work gets a permit for making face shields and perspex counter screens

I am feeling for you and hope you safe. I checked today and did a comparison of countries that were strict.

Russia started early. They closed their border to China on 30 January already.
If one compare them to Luxembourg:
Luxembourg 1453 cases, population of 614 thousand people
Russia 1036 cases, population of 146,7 million people.

Interesting times.

yip, still onboard.
I got another 1 month contract. Hopefully it is finished by that time, but as you guys say, it is unlikely, especially with the videos I am being sent.

The USA has a whole evacuation program setup to get their people out of SA if they need to get out.
Our guys just locked us out...
