Rang the mobility shop to enquire where my new special walking shoes had got to.
It seems they are not being allowed out of China where they were manufactured because of the coronavirus.
So at least my feet will not be catching the coronavirus and spreading it to the rest of me which is was just comforting.
Since the shop had a pair of the same design in another colour they will do fine, and are being delivered on Monday.
Frankly I don’t think any germ can survive my sweaty feet but don’t tell anybody that.
It does show how the virus precautions are impacting already on everyday life in Australia, but we are at war with an unseen and unknown invader, so it must be done.
