2020 started with the extreme bushfires along the eastern coast of Australia. Something we are becoming more used to each year. However during January we were hearing about an infectious virus that had shut down a large province in China. At the time we had good weather and we all had an optimism for a normal year. February saw the virus hit many European countries and I remember the effects it had on Italy and how it then spread far and wide. Australia had its first case of COVID-19 in late January. How our world has changed since.
