ICYMI – a worker infected at the world’s third-busiest container port, China

A few folks might be incredulous that one case can shut down a section of such a globally critical facility … but yeah. Further supply-line disruptions ahead.

Speaking of one case, Australia’s capital city, Canberra, was placed in lockdown yesterday with just one new case reported. the first in a year.
