Same here. I've just employed a number of new guys who don't have family here yet in Abu Dhabi so you can imagine what they are feeling. I run regular face to face meetings, joke of the day and I setup a funny virtual background just to try and keep them smiling.for me, working from home. Concerned about my team and colleagues (also working from home), so contacting them every day for some face-to-face video time. (Zoom is the best tool for this I have found. There is a (limited) free option and it works very well over Australia's ****** internet).
seen the gold graph Baloo? It knew this (economic crash) was coming for around the last 10 months.Zoom has been about the only stock I own that's still in green and getting greener.
Come on mate you know better than that, you got the sides of the badge wrong.Maybe I would get lucky and have Tiger policeman pull me over. Better wear my Tiger cap. Then again he could be a Collingwood supporter...they are everywhere when they win.
Thanks T1974. A few questions on life in China. Were the isolation rules the same as here? Did you ever have a full lockdown with no businesses operating at all ala NZ? Are there still new cases or have they ceased in Shanghai? Have any of the isolation rules relaxed?
Hi MD, the Isolation rules varied between provinces, wuhan and hubei among a few that were completely shut down, no one in no one out, i beleive they are just starting to open up a little in the badly effected areas.Thanks T1974.

Great insight. What's happening with the factories? They are essential to the global economy getting back up and runningHi MD, the Isolation rules varied between provinces, wuhan and hubei among a few that were completely shut down, no one in no one out, i beleive they are just starting to open up a little in the badly effected areas.
Shanghai we shut down a week for Chinese New Year as per normal and then they extended that an extra week, most companies including the one i work at was doing work from home and Skeleton staff at office for essential services, people were genuinely scared especially those that didnt own a car. Since march onwards people are still very cautious and not going out often although some not all bars, restaurants and social things are opening up again. All compounds only residents generally between 24-6am are completely shut, so no guests at all, in and out we still have fever checks etc to everywehere you go including our compound and offices, China mobilized very quickly internet facilities to gauge your health so for offices you would need to register with government and show your Green health code, remember they have facial recognition everywhere and can link customs and quarantine so they know if you entered the country less than 14 days ago and if you didnt follow regulations heavy penalties.
After the inital mess up with Wuhan i think the government and the people have been very good and the people especially responsible in isolation, considering Chinese New year is the great mass migration when all this kicked off and the cold weather during that time it was a recipe for disaster, I think they have done very well after the initial beginning.
In all honesty and its not a nice thing to say, i think most of us are sick and tired of it, its been a few months and our kids including my 10 year old has had literally 2 weeks of school all year! China is definitely recovering though so time to be positive and hopefully start the business recovery as hopefully the rest of the world (which we are very reliant on in my industry) starts to get through this and beat it.
Zoom works heaps better than Webex. Good get.
