The rail line must surely be starting to hurt WA.
TP and most tissues gone at my local Coles. Perhaps it truly is 2020.

Restriction wise though, I'm not sure it will change the border rules sooner than planned. Supply chain drivers would be captured under the critical industry rules outlined recently, with shorter isolation periods. Perhaps another rule could allow asymptomatic cases or exposure-site-visited drivers to isolate in their cabins, wear N95s when refuelling, etc but I don't see that as appealing or feasible.

We aren't quite at the "three meals away from chaos" moment, despite my local Nandos having no chicken for a long time.

My local Coles has plenty.of toilet paper, but there are stock shortages across the store. Some empty shelves here and there.

The issue with truck drivers is that some aren't interested in driving to Perth when there is plenty.of other work around, without all the palava entailed.in the WA border.

Most of the truck drivers happy to drive anywhere but the companies can make more money with their trucks doing shorter work and not have to deal with the prospect of their drivers getting stuck on the other side of Earth.
They have had cutbacks with air freight too so going to need someone to pony up to get freight moving. A lot of rain forecast for the North and Western regions of SA this week so more flooding expected and possible road damage.

If they are correct about Covid becoming endemic the tail will never end, and it will just go up and down in waves of various sizes due to variety of factors. The severity (virulence) largely depending on the variant/s of the time.

No huge spike means that the health system and economy will both cope better.

Interestingly cases in the UK have plateaued on the way down, with numbers around the some for the last few weeks.

The Tassie stats. Continuing the slow rise in Vaccinations.
Tas Premier announced that tomorrows stats will have a reduction down of past ( coughulative) cases of about 1300 or 4% due to data scrubbing - found RAT , PCR duplicates etc

No chicken breast, ribs or tenders at our local, so whole chooks it was for tea the other night.

We were at an IGA this morning in Southern Perth and there were no obvious shortages on the shelves. The people in front of us in the checkout had a 24 pack of TP so it was available.

SA continues to trend down, 1266 today and three deaths (no details on age), hospital numbers down. Announcement this Arvo about elective surgery. For once I agree with AMA, the restrictions to elective surgery are doing more harm than Covid to a great number more people. There are some awful stories coming out and I can understand the complete distress of those waiting on public lists.

And of course it has nothing to do with several AFL players needing some minor surgery and the clubs lobbying the government for elective surgery to return 🤣
