Oh yes! Among other things I learned the lab I run might need lots of adaptations to be up to the safety level required to test for the virus. To be fair, it is organized by a big biotech company who sells kits and reagents for molecular biology work. It was surprisingly in Portuguese by a Brazilian to a Brazilian audience and there were plenty of useful technical hints. On a separate note I got a quotation for a qPCR equipment and almost fell off my chair. The dollar is in a historical high mark here now, but still... something around U$ 50.000,00. I can find open models for as low as U$ 15.000 online in the US (importing is a major hassle here)...

Things are exponentially getting worse here, I am afraid. The worst part is, everyone knew it would come to that...

Stay safe GG!

I still work at a holiday home rental company. At this point I am not going to tell you which one since staff and colleagues are being harassed on social media (thank Frank I don't have Facebook and don't use LinkedIn.)
Last year during high season we were understaffed and we sometimes had up to 20 people waiting in queue, which then shocked me. The amount of waiters is now well over 100. It's really getting to a lot of our colleagues.
