    Coronavirus

    Well, where we are (SE QLD), we had most restrictions/limits removed a few weeks ago as stock levels got back up and people realised that panic buiying/hording wasn't necessary... (we were nearly back to normal).

I'm 1500km+ away from Victoria, (I'm in Queensland), and hording has started here as well, despite...
