Oh, where from? Although we will be in Bali from 27th March. Maybe there are places available. Everywhere I checked in SA started in April.I am booked in for 31 March as I am off overseas in early April.
It’s unfortunate that Australia’s count is being artificially bumped up by the Diamond Princess evacuees. Interesting too that even though UK borders are still open to Chinese travellers hasn’t spiked up much and pretty much all recovered.Interesting NYT article reports on the development of new clusters of cases in Iran, where voters turned out for a Parliamentary Election yesterday, as well as Italy and South Korea, and on the particular problems Iran faces in dealing with its outbreak
With 4 Deaths in Iran and More Cases on 3 Continents, Fears of Coronavirus Pandemic Rise
Also some useful maps and guides
BNO news is updating another table of cases by country, but it has the advantage that each data point has its souce listed, so you can make its own judgement on its veracity.
This Singapore map shows locatin (residence?) of each case there, as well as the cluster of case infection sources that each case belongs to, as well as particulars of each case there. Another map shows cases in Hong Kong and their status
I don't see why the assumption that the Federal 'ranks above' the State one. Many of these things have some political element.Nine Group newspapers ('The Age') have a major story on Sunday 23 February evening re Victoria's chief medical officer says a pandemic is 'likely, if not inevitable' but a few hours prior, the Commonwealth's equivalent (who ranks above any State ones) allegedly told us to go about our normal business.
With conflicting information like that, impossible for the vast majority who like me have minimal if any medical knowledge to know who to believe.
I've not read the full article due to a paywall but in a sense, both could be correct: the Federal gent now, and the State chap later.
When I began travelling, my memory is that window seats were the most coveted. In 2020, that has switched to 'aisle' so the seat map may be accurate, as dajop maintains.
For the simple reason that we're a Federation with the national government's laws overriding any ones the States (or Territories) make. Here we're not talking legislation, just advice to the community. The Federal Government has access to diplomats that the States don't, while no state has the equivalent of the Dept of Foreign Affairs and Trade. There are normally protocols as well.I don't see why the assumption that the Federal 'ranks above' the State one. Many of these things have some political element.
I have it on extremely good authority that the COVID-19 virus has now broken any attempts at geographical confinement and will eventually become global. Now it is a three-way issue between spread, lethality, and evolving countermeasures (vaccines, experience at dealing with it, etc) I understand that it will reach effectively everywhere, but it is, in itself, relatively benign compared to things like MERS.And so it begins.. Phase 2…..
A sixth person in B.C. is believed to be infected with the coronavirus, and the case is raising new questions about how the disease is spreading, health officials announced Thursday.
The latest patient is a woman in her 30s who lives in the Fraser Health region, according to provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. She had recently returned from a trip to Iran and is now recovering at home.
Henry said officials were surprised when they learned the woman had only visited Iran, and not China or neighbouring countries that have seen the bulk of COVID-19 cases.
"That could be an indicator that there's more widespread transmission. This is what we call an indicator or sentinel event
I understand your fears, but same could possibly said of any influenza or other ailment??it is not catastrophic
Perhaps not if you are <50.. but for those senior citizens with even mild immune compromise… it may well be.
We have a very elderly family member who will have buckleys if infected … for us that's a catastrophe….
