    3. The Governments of New South Wales, Victoria, and the Australian Capital Territory will proceed to a more comprehensive shutdown of non-essential services over the next 48 hours

      News article: The Governments of New South Wales, Victoria, and the Australian Capital Territory will proceed to a more comprehensive shutdown of non-essential services over the next 48 hours in an attempt to slow the spread of coronavirus.

      For non-Australians: New South Wales and Victoria are Australia's two most populous states. Between them, they contain about 60% of the Australian population. They naturally also have the highest number of coronavirus cases.

      The Australian Capital Territory is a land-locked region totally surrounded by NSW. It's the home of our capital city, Canberra. It's small in population but, if NSW is clamping down, the ACT pretty much has to follow.

    4. Can I cycle outside?

      Sorry for the low effort post but my computer is broken and my smartphone is crap.

      My city in Brazil is basically closed for business. My mother was supposed to be in another continent but, THANKFULLY, flight restrictions prevented her from traveling.

      The downside is that she’s making me crazy like mothers do.

      I’m going bananas here, and cycling makes me sane. I also need the exercise. Am I crazy for wanting to get on my bike once a day? The streets are not totally empty, but a lot less populated.

      I’m in Salvador, Bahia. My state has 33 cases now.
