Marks the first reported
Transfer of the mysterious disease,
Coronavirus. This unwelcome case was first reported
Here. Few paid any real attention initially.
“Don’t know about you”, said the Prime Minister.
“I am off to watch my Sharkies play football”
“I think you misunderstand the point of what we’re doing …”
Devoted Australian family man, James Kwan, died in Perth, February 28 2020.

This crazy pattern has continued for 365 days. Of sorts, corralled, we mourn all dead.
My thoughts go to all the first responders (and those who act as the last responders) and to all caught in the Covid 19 pandemic.
To us all: wear a mask, wash your hands, practise social distancing, and help everyone stay safe.
