    It is too far I agree, but there are also still so many people who don't seem to grasp that normal life has to hit pause right now, and the government did tell us that if the population had just adhered to the initial measures put in place weeks ago, it wouldn't have to go any further. Too many...

    IMO essential workers should have some form of certification they can have with them as proof they need to be out. Not sure how cops would be able to judge those just going to the shops etc. But evidently people still aren't getting the message. Beaches in NSW were still crowded over the...

    Yep they do. But these aren't FIFO workers we're talking about. I'm sure there are plenty who will do it without a moment's hesitation, but I'm willing to bet there will be plenty who won't.

    Oh good now the AFL's tossing up putting all 18 clubs in quarantine in one location. That's an effective way to write out a massive chunk of footy players who have children.

    We could not be coming at this from a more different angle because I couldn't give a shit about my rights or anyone else's rights right now, I just want to avoid as many deaths as possible and would rather risk enduring whatever hardships that may come afterwards in order to achieve that. I...

    Not ignoring it but I think the virus will kill more, particularly if social isolation measures are lessened and hospitals become inundated and overwhelmed.

    Tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands < millions. And this virus will take millions of lives if not taken seriously enough.

    History shows that the movement of peoples (even domestically) can have catastrophic effects during a pandemic (Spanish Flu - 50 million people.) History also shows that recessions and depressions in developed countries with stable governments do not last forever (Depression of the 30s...

    But as I posted earlier there are countless examples where the world has been f'd, be it through depressions and pandemics, and it just continues. This is not ancient times. We're a civilised society and yes there are some serious buffoons in leadership positions but believe it or not I trust...

    To me it's just a bit of a first world mentality. Basically kill thousands of innocent and unwilling citizens so that my comfy life won't be messed with too badly? No thanks.

    You won't get your answer though. It's still very much a wait-and-see approach as we look at the curve and it's correlation to the measures that have been put in place over the last month. I suspect in a few weeks, once the gov have a clearer idea of whether the measures have worked and will...

    If you look at human history, the world has been f'd more times than one could even count. And the world just keeps f'ing right back each time. In the span of a single administration, FDR took the US from it's lowest ever ebb to arguably it's most prosperous position it experienced in the 20th...

    I am not a fan at all of the 'just let it happen' mentality that's been floated around. For two reasons. One being that despite the elderly being the most susceptible to this virus and them being in the twilight of their lives, they are still human beings, parents, grandparents. They deserve...

    Australia's numbers are very good, relatively speaking. But celebrating the slowing of the spread right now would be the equivalent of a team putting the cue in the rack because they're 30 points up at quarter time. There is still such a long way to go and so much potential for further outbreaks...
