That would be disastrous for Australia if the cooler weather helps transmission! That might challenge Scott Morrison even more, and leave Australia with a real eighteen month lockdown (which some have suggested as likely) without services ever reopening and potentially huge problems both financial and political. Huge death tolls of up to 15 percent of Australia’s 25,000,000 people (3,750,000) would be likely if the government says it cannot do anything and leaves it to an unregulated private sector to provide care. Weimar-style hyperinflation would be likely if the government just prints money to try to deal with a crisisEurope is traditionally a cooler, colder weather and are conditions more likely for the virus to spread. (thats from my readings so far on this situation)
Would it get worse even than Italy in this coming winter? Will Australia surpass Italy’s death total?Yes, this is true but really only affects open areas and this is not a main infection point mainly due to UV. Air Conditioned interiors, living, working and general human movement areas is basically breeding weather of viruses. The numbers say that our rate of growth in the early stages warmth has had little to no impact in comparison to cool places like Iran. I would be preparing for this to hit as hard as it has there with hopefully some "flattening of the curve" however that seems unlikely.
Yes. If it is true it is proof – like the country’s unrivalled bad record regarding greenhouse gas emissions – that Australia needs a massive improvement in home energy standards and that the rest of the world must demand these be paid 100 percent out of the pockets of the big corporate polluters.I drive my car a lot with air conditioning on, would you advise against this in this time of uncertainty?
