    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Though cases in itself does not really mean anything as a measure as it is so reliant on the quantity of testing down. What is a case is a bit rubbery around the world. ie We would have had some "cases" that were not cases simply because the infection person was say isolating at home, or even...

    So eat egg and then use foil ;)

    General Corona Virus chit chat thread - non-travel specific

    With the number of people they have living in poverty and in very crowded conditions you would imagine that sooner or later that their will be vast numbers of people infection. The cases will most likely come from the middle and upper classes.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    It is a bit like with the Y2K Bug. Because the vast majority of countries and organisations knew it was a problem and acted in time it was not the problem it could have been. With the "CV19 Bug" there is a stark difference between the countries who acted in time (even if a little late) and...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I agree the feedback I am getting from my medical friends and relatives is that things are on the quiet side. On the "guests" arriving it also though depends which facility one is at as the number of "guests" are low and are more going to some facilities simply as our case loads are so low...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Ignoring the stats. The other way that we know that we are winning the war at present is that unlike the UK and USA we are not seeking to convert our conference buildings into massive cv19 wards. If the projections were grim this would be occurring already. Yes the number of icu beds have...

    Cruising choices with an active Pandemic

    I dont know what the %s of each crew is. But the first ship went into lockdown. The second has not. From the helicopter pics ypu see the crew in groups on deck chatting.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Yes agree. I just meant in terms of the stats you quoted. I am not sure about the limited part. However I agree it needs to be “how do we move forward”. I think our politicians are probably worried though that if they flag in advance that we are about to ease off in future, that some may...

    Cruising choices with an active Pandemic

    They may not be there due to themselves not being disciplined though. They may be there for all sorts of reasons including others being not disciplined, and/or various health issues which make them more susceptible. A cluster of cases in Vic for example were all being treated for cancer at the...

    Cruising choices with an active Pandemic

    From what I have read so far CV 19 seems to be quite stable and that differences in mortality rates gets back to things like the age and health of people (ie comorbidities) as well as factors such as the health system not being overwhelmed where aspects such as enough staff and equipment, as...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I think what your stats are showing is that social distancing etc are working in Australia, and I would estimate that they are working a lot more successfully than our health officials would have hoped. Now you can just throw this all away and start having people being deliberately infected...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    The more CV19 patients that pass through our hospitals, and in particular the respiratory wards, the higher the viral loads on the medical staff in those wards and the more likely that nurses and doctors will die. Perfectly healthy medical professionals with no comorbidities are dying around...

    General Corona Virus chit chat thread - non-travel specific

    I do not know about those who you refer to. However I do know my niece, who is a nurse, just over a week ago was abused in a supermarket and she indicated to us her family and friends (via Facebook to only these categories) that this was not the first time.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    I assume week 1 is the first week of Jan? If so it looks like: 1/ that it had started as a milder flu season than most and 2/ that influenza really kicked down noticeably about the time flights were being reduced and at least some people in the USA would have been starting to practice the...
