COVID and the Melbourne response

By Colgate | My photo journey | 6 Jun 2021



Ok I am going to do something I don't normally do and talk about current events. Anyone that follows me know I like to talk about art, crypto or family. I avoid any hot topics like the, excuse the pun, plague.

I am luck to live in Melbourne where we have eradicated COVID a few times and have had long lockdowns but also time of no make no feat no COVID. Recently we got an infection thst escaped from a hotel quarantine for international travellers to Australia.

This has taken us into a lockdown and a call to get tested. I live in the outskirts of Melbourne and this is the turn out we have at a small testing center down a small aide street. It crossed streets and fireststions, leaving break where needed. Amazing turn put from people willing to wait hours to get tested. Yesterday 50,000 got tested, 0.1% of the population and this is occurring every day.

Look this post has no set purpose or message, I just want to highlight the generosity of people giving up time to get tested and enable the community to return to safety.
