    Analysis Lizard people, Trump and other non-corona rabbit holes

    It seems to me there has been some panic buying of tin foil that has otherwise gone unnoticed.

    Opinion The Politics of Coronavirus

    A lot of what I have been doing for work the past week has been related to this area. I shall post at greater length later on in regard to this, but essentially the outlook is unfortunately nowhere near as rosy as Murphy's article presents. The downturn will be bleaker than anything anyone...

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact II

    Variola (smallpox) is different in that it is entirely adapted to humans so much that it is completely incapable of harbouring in another species - remove it from people and you remove it from the planet. It also has a very slow rate of mutation compared to other respiratory-borne pathogens...

    Analysis Lizard people, Trump and other non-corona rabbit holes

    So we have self-isolation in place for not even a week and we are already at Lizard People and Jews... I could rage at the ignorant stupidity of the subjects raised and the deliberate posting of misinformation on a forum that many are using as a credible source - but it would be without...

    Positives and Negatives vs Melbourne

    Ah Chee: 2 goals, 2 goal assists, 6 score involvements and generally made something happen every time he was near the ball. Still can't get a game the next week. Got to feel for him - gets an opportunity, plays his best game for the club and then the competition is suspended.

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    Yes, in Qld they are - I found out the hard way after moving here. It is completely reckless these elections are still going ahead. Demand for postal votes (which closed two weeks ago) crashed the application site and many ended up missing out entirely. Early voting booths have been packed...

    If you're in Midland, COVID-19 is the least of your concerns.

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    Agree, the only way to manage "shelter at home" is to get both the police and army on the streets and get it into people's heads that this is serious.

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    That is a potential risk, one that in particularly the UK government presented as a reason for hesitancy of its initial response. It also raises questions about freedom of movement after this crisis has been addressed. The other fundamental piece is what kind of immunity is conferred after...

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    It's unlikely as the worst impacts of COVID-19 are caused by rapid onset viral pneumonia, which leads to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). These patients are generally at risk of drowning in their own lungs well before a secondary bacterial infection can establish itself. That is of...

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    The growth in confirmed cases has improved for the country (i.e declined) slightly over the past few days. As others have mentioned, whether this is the beginning of an actual flattening or a reflection of a narrow scope of testing shall be revealed over the next two weeks. That said...

    Toast The Positivity Thread - A Place to Share Feel Good Moments

    Here's one for those with younger kids, especially if you are cooped up at home and feel stuck in a re-enactment of The Shining. The Fart Police. Essentially, the next time one of the little ones inevitably proceeds to drop their guts and make the place uninhabitable, you put on an act and...

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    Unlikely, despite however bad the response in the US is. Countries such as India and Indonesia are yet to see the full impact of this virus. The total number of cases in India alone could potentially end up being higher than the entire population of the US. Plus nobody knows what impact this...

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    Work revised their policies so now I'm no longer on carer's leave and officially working from home. Incorporated the desk chair into my morning push ups to make sure that it is ergonomically sound.

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    The jury remains out on this one as we simply don't have enough evidence yet to come to a definitive conclusion. However, the most likely and expected outcome is that some type of immunity will be provided after recovery from infection. Once again, the duration of that immunity is still...

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    This. Testing has only recently broadened its scope beyond those who have recently been overseas or associated with a positively identified case in the past 1-2 days. Under such circumstances community transmission can propagate without anyone noticing; all it takes is one asymptomatic case to...

    They shut everything down a week earlier, it makes a difference.

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    Logarithmically, the growth rate in Australia is unchanged. Initiatives taken to contain the outbreak have not yet had any impact on cases.

    Analysis Coronavirus - The Impact

    I don't know about you but it sounded to me more like a blame-shifting exercise, rather than announcing anything newly informative to the public. The caseloads are increasing at the same rate as last week and the week before but now its all your fault it is happening...
