As for the virus, Taiwan is the "best" country ATM. Nearly the same population as us, but 440 cases, 7 deaths......compared to us...7,000 cases ...98 deaths.
They locked their borders a lot earlier than us, which is what we should have done.
But yes, on the whole, we are one lucky country.

Doesn,t matter about the virus Gronk...we are still the best country to live in.  Agree...we should have shut down earlier and the Ruby Princess debacle was a complete cluster f.  Scomo,s jogging along ok now...big test will be in a few months when the economy (and the world) will be in a not so good place. :cheers:

did I hear on the news they are saying Russia is the new hot spot for COVID-19 with now over 274000 confirmed case, second to the USA.   Their Death rate is still low by comparison,  only about 2700 compared to 10s of thousands in UK and some European Countries.   So much for early comments about Russia not being infected by their Chinese Comrades. 
Cheers

The virus has been around long enough for the graphs to start showing what’s actually going on.
Or more specifically, what effect different countries strategies are having.


The Aus ‘lockdown’ model;




The UK’s ‘herd immunity’ model;




And the USA’s ‘pretend it doesn’t exist, tell the population it will magically disappear’ model;



Coincidentally that 1.5 million cases in the US equates to almost 35% of the total global cases.
Not sure if they’ve been given an exact date when it will magically disappear from their country, but I guess they’re hoping it’s pretty soon. :(

I spoke to my parents in the UK, who are already despairing of how the govt are (mis)managing it - but this was reinforced when I told them the number of deaths in their county was over double the whole of Australia...

https://www.shropshirestar.com/news/health/coronavirus-covid19/2020/05/17/three-more-county-coronavirus-deaths-confirmed/

Stay home, or if you can't, at least stay locally, even as things "open up" - there are areas of NSW that are now approaching a couple of weeks without new cases, and this pattern needs to spread across the whole State.

If we keep foreigners out of the country, we have a very good chance of beating this.
NSW has had 6 new cases in the last 3 or 4 days...all of them in 14 day lockdown because they came back from overseas, so no new cases out in the population.
I think nearly every state is going good except for Mexico....you blokes need to lift your game !!   ;D

Looks like I won't be chopping the Jayco in on the private jet anytime soon- https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/coronavirus/why-we-might-not-get-a-coronavirus-vaccine/ar-BB14tkKZ

I don't see why WA SA NT and Qld haven't joined forces with open borders and leave the leper colonies on their own  :4x4:
There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

NSW hasn't had any new cases for a week.....except for a few that are already in lockdown ( came from overseas )

That only leaves Mexico !!   ;D

Hmmm.....
Federal department of heath says otherwise.



That’s on top of the other 2 cases on Friday, they still don’t know how the student got infected and still doing contact tracing of everyone he had contact with around the school.

But hay, just because it was your state’s incompetence that let the virus off that boat and spread it across the country, don’t let that stop you’s all from telling us clean states what we should be doing.... ;)

"Tourist accommodation such as caravan parks and camping grounds can open, but there can be no use of communal facilities such as kitchens and bathrooms."

So that means piles of Shit and Shit tickets everywhere out in the bush

I meant any new cases out in the population. Those cases are from overseas ...already in hotel isolation. The student....who knows, but we shot and buried him !! ;D

Ruby Princess...yep, a debacle....but it wasn't the only source.

Actually......

the Ruby Princess directly and indirectly has been linked to 11 deaths in Tasmania.

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/apr/30/tasmania-coronavirus-outbreak-traced-to-two-ruby-princess-passengers

And as of a few weeks ago, 22 directly nationally, ...

Yeah just over 10% of all cases in Australia can be traced back to NSW incompetence. ;)

Would type more, but Gladys will be on the telly soon and I need to make sure I know what advise she has for how the rest of the country should be run today. Ya know, after doing such a great job of leading be example and all that... ;D ;D

interesting listening to teacher while Beks at home schooing

The local bus company isnt going to let more than 20 people (students or adults) on buses at 1 time... they are also not going to run extra buses to help with all this... so more parents will be driving drop off zones will be chaos etc..
