On the personal side the school holiday is finally here along with the Easter holiday. I am going to try sleep in and get some rest.

Australia wide there are a total of 6108 confirmed infections today and an increase of 85 which is equivalent to 1.41% from yesterday. Now the infection rate has been stabilized but how we are going to get out under the current lock downs without a vaccine, no one has the answer yet.
