With the current lockdown in Victoria being extended, this time without the buffer of JobKeeper, the real impact caused by the financial strain and uncertainty is about to begin.
The toll on the people of Victoria is great, as there seems to be no end in sight of this style of pandemic management and the ripple effects on its citizens.
I cannot help but make correlation between this pandemic and the classic children's book, The Neverending Story, where the land of Fantastica (Australia) is threatened by The Nothing (virus). Here a battle for survival is played out in a fantasy world of amazing creatures, in a war of Good versus Evil.
