  1. April? May? Easy to confuse. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/coronavirus/article241609941.html
  2. Mon 8pm: +149 Tue 8pm: +211 Wed 8pm: +190 Thu 8pm: +186 Fri 8pm: +212 Sat 8pm: +174 Sun 8pm: +127 Mon 8pm: +114 There are now 2032 COVID-19 cases in NSW, with 114 new cases overnight. NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said sweeping new powers to stop people leaving their home without a reasonable excuse would help to slow the spread of coronavirus, warning it is "too early to make the assessment that we have spread the curve". "Remain vigilant, do not look at the daily numbers each day," Ms Berejiklian said, in light of the state's daily total of new cases declining. "This is serious, we are at a serious stage of the virus." NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant said the drop in numbers comes as fewer tests are being done. "What is concern to all of us is that unknown level of community transmission ... if people don't have symptoms," Ms Berejiklian said. "That's the real threat: people walking around without symptoms while they have this disease. That's why it is important to assume that they have it, and to act like they have it." There are 164 people in hospital in the state, including 35 in ICU, with 16 on ventilators. https://www.smh.com.au/national/coronavirus-updates-live-global-covid-19-cases-surpass-737-000-nsw-begins-enforcement-of-scott-morrison-s-social-gathering-restrictions-20200330-p54fg5.html
  3. I have to wonder what the differences might be between countries with the counting of those who died “of” COVID-19 and those who died “with” COVID-19 but the primary cause off death was an underlying condition.
  4. It’s simple. Testing and contact tracing. Testing and contact tracing. Testing and contact tracing. Social isolation and shutdowns/lockdowns obviously work but you don’t know if you need to do them unless you know where the virus is located. NSW Health has been do this since January and releasing daily reports. https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/news/pages/2020-nsw-health.aspx This the first report on 25th January detailing the first confirmed cases and showing the virus has been in Sydney since mid-January at the latest. https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/news/Pages/20200125_03.aspx This is the most recent report up until 8pm 29 March. https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/news/Pages/20200330_00.aspx
  5. Statistically speaking lack of breathing leads to a very high morbidity rate. Patients are put on a ventilator when they can no longer breath. No ventilator = no breathing = death As far as I know there’s no test to determine who will live and who will still die if they are placed on a ventilator. “Critical care unit outcomes have been received for 165 patients, of whom 79 patients have died and 86 were discharged alive from critical care.” There was no control group of patients who didn’t receive ventilation. The report doesn’t say what you think it says and both the journalist and the doctor quoted clearly don’t understand it either. Did you read the report? https://www.icnarc.org/DataServices/Attachments/Download/b5f59585-5870-ea11-9124-00505601089b
  6. It was dumb. They should have just delayed it a month and made it all postal voting.
  7. Even if someone is still a New Zealand citizen they’re covered. (There’s normally complete freedom of movement between Australia and NZ.)
  8. New wages subsidy in Australia. $130 billion over 6 months. $1500 per fortnight Jobkeeper payment per employee paid to employers. Total package so far is over $350 billion.
  9. Kiwis crash website to dob in neighbours New Zealanders are embracing their inner cop, crashing a Dob-in-a-Kiwi website within a day of police opening it. Police established the www.105.police.govt.nz website during the country's coronavirus lockdown to allow members of the public to give tip-offs of non- compliant activities. Commissioner Mike Bush said police received 4200 reports in the first 24 hours. "It crashed our system. So we put it back up again. And it's working," he said. The website was created after thousands of Kiwis flooded the country's emergency number, 111, to provide the same information. Around 1000 of the submissions relate to businesses operating in defiance of the lockdown, with the rest relating to individuals. AAP
  10. Only ended up being a half day. We finished at 12:30. My work is an office/warehouse and I work in the office. However, the actual warehouse staff are off this week (there’s now only 2 full time warehouse staff) so I had to cover things in the warehouse, do my normal job and do some things somebody else in the office normally does.
