strop2: I have been doing a lot of reading from the internet and mainly posting on Facebook. Update in Vietnam ref Coronavirus: last Monday was back to school but school was cancelled in Vietnam and also cancelled this coming week. Feb 9, 2020 23:07:43 GMT 10
strop2: Vietnam sprayed from planes to counter the virus (placebo, confidence more than anything else), schools were entirely wiped down after the spray. Markets are open but not many people around. Had my rice cut, so have another 1,000kg of rice. Feb 9, 2020 23:10:51 GMT 10
strop2: Some fuel stations ran out of fuel but OK now, one guy was arrested for saying people had the virus when they didn't. No one is sick locally in the Mekong. In between renovating and still need to build a 72sqm garden on part of a cement slab. So above gnd Feb 9, 2020 23:13:39 GMT 10
strop2: Renos completed: new roofing, roof insulation, 1 x room (3m x 3.2m) and 1 x room (3m x 7.5m), wall dividing the 2, new 60cm x 60cm tiles on the front and side of main house, and all rooms tiled inside main house up 2.4m. The idea is to cool the house. Feb 9, 2020 23:20:06 GMT 10 *
strop2: Problem: I must do a Visa Run, where do I go? Feb 9, 2020 23:22:51 GMT 10
dagyboy: i am from the south east out past Kingaroy way. Feb 10, 2020 10:35:12 GMT 10
dagyboy: people living in THE CITIES will be ROUNDED UP FIRST unless u have A BUNKER that they wont find of course. Feb 10, 2020 10:39:03 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi all - thanks strop2 and also fei for the close to the ground updates. Feb 11, 2020 11:41:27 GMT 10
SA Hunter: strop2, welcome to visit here if you like. Feb 11, 2020 11:43:02 GMT 10
strop2: Vietnam built a new 200 bed hospital in HCMC for Virus sufferers. The Gov't is says do not congregate in large numbers and children still need to be to receive their normal immunisations. Or after this is over old illnesses could take hold. Feb 12, 2020 12:31:44 GMT 10
strop2: The numbers in Vietnam are still around 20 for the virus but most other gov'ts are hiding numbers due to tourism, and exporting. I expect cover ups to stop shortly and we will see how bad it is. Feb 12, 2020 12:34:36 GMT 10
strop2: To China - where a scientist said that the coronavirus came from a meteor. The Coronavirus known as SARS came out of China in 2003, surely he could have fact checked his own statement...…. Feb 12, 2020 12:36:40 GMT 10
strop2: I just contacted HCMC - trying to get an exemption not to travel (airports and Planes are a cesspool of germs) and was told that people are now buying out food items at Supermarkets. These are all the nightmares coming true, I go shopping later today.... Feb 12, 2020 12:39:54 GMT 10
strop2: More local news - Vinh Phuc has 9 virus cases, 54 suspected and another 249 being watched and have set up a 300 bed field hospital. Vietnam is always very quick to act in a crisis. Feb 12, 2020 15:58:02 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Seems to be well contained here in Oz - depends on what report you believe as to the severity of the virus. Feb 12, 2020 22:22:48 GMT 10
strop2: I saw Australian news today that a diplomatic Peter Dutton ref China and still denying Chinese Students to enter Australia - a great response from Australia to contain the virus even with the number of Chinese visitors who had already entered. Feb 14, 2020 10:24:14 GMT 10
strop2: China's economy and reputation are taking a huge hit - countries need to be strong. I think we are all wanting to know what the truth is and need everyone to be honest about this virus. All economies are taking a hit, buy local as much as you can. Feb 14, 2020 10:28:32 GMT 10
strop2: Life goes on, I have harvested my latest rice crop 1,300kg 4 days ago (2,200sqm rice land), have lots of fruit trees at various stages of growth (4,000sqm of x rice land), 6 x boxes of noodles, water treatment filter, extra fuel for generator and 4 geese. Feb 14, 2020 10:37:29 GMT 10 *
strop2: I can upgrade security at my Mekong House at anytime but currently Vietnam has had a great response to the virus. As long as people do the right thing and don't bypass the systems in place. Feb 14, 2020 10:50:04 GMT 10
SA Hunter: Hi all - back from a weekend at the bol. More roofing supports built. Slowly getting there. Drove away feeling like I was finally accomplishing something. Feb 16, 2020 15:25:47 GMT 10
