I'm breaking from tradition, and including a couple iPhone snaps from my recent expedition to the grocery store. The first pic shows a common local style of mask-wearing. Lots of folks have masks. But when half of them seem focused on protecting their chin, I'm not sure how much good it's doing! The second photo shows an informational poster about the virus. Cases are exploding, and after months with less than 200 cases, Madagascar is suddenly approaching 4000 cases. There are reports of hospital overcrowding already beginning in the two biggest cities.
