Isn't one of the issues that early on you can be infected, but not yet symptomatic or shedding the virus for a test to detect? Thus the 14 day quarantine allows time for the virus to be present if you've been exposed to it, with the additional byproduct of saving tests.Why is Australia worrying about 14 day quarantine when you are travelling from state to state - You are better to ask for a negative COVID 19 test - Hubs are being investigated by all domestic sporting leagues throughout the world, though they can be tricky to organise - There may never be a vaccine for COVID 19, so you'll end up with no crowds at sporting events or the like, which mean will mean the end of professional sport - Gee sport was played during the 1918/1919 Spanish Flu plague.
No there isn’t plenty of evidence at all.
In some studies they’ve ceased using it as causing heart problems
A research trial of coronavirus patients in Brazil ended after patients taking a higher dose of chloroquine, one of the drugs President Trump has promoted, developed irregular heart rates.www.nytimes.com
I already have. There are many questions still to be answered over what we're dealing with. The noise from the mass media on one hand and conspiracy theorists on the other has drowned out the reality that these lockdowns were done on the basis of assumptions that have not been proven to be true, and the studies being done currently on the real fatality rate of the virus indicate that there is still a signficant likelihood that it will be far, far lower than those first assumptions.Feel free to articulate what you are actually saying then.
Your statement about what has happened in Europe and US are also based on faulty assumptions. It is known and has been stated by health department officials in multiple governments that a majority of "coronavirus deaths" are not actually directly linked to the virus. Furthermore, that is an unfalsifiable statement - you cannot actually prove what would've happened had there been no restrictions, although Sweden is currently making a decent case for taking less restrictions.Your argument is a feedback loop. It is precisely because of the restrictions that we have avoided what’s occurred in Europe and the US.
Are they? How do you know? If only a fraction of "Coronavirus deaths" are actually from the virus, what would that say about its deadliness?Even if the real fatality rate is much lower than the 3ish% figures commonly bandied around, they are still going to be much higher than the flu for example. This is SARS-lite in some ways (lethality wise) and SARS on steroids (in terms of its ability to silently spread) in other ways; that’s not a good combination.
Which countries? Italy, Spain, France, UK and the US are and have been swamped with sick people over crowding ICUs and an unprecedented number of deaths, but they’re not directly linked with corona?It is known and has been stated by health department officials in multiple governments that a majority of "coronavirus deaths" are not actually directly linked to the virus.
0.026% of the Australian population has a confirmed test result, what are the odds they're an Essendon supporter, on BigFooty, reading this thread?So no?

I believe Chief has said he knows people with it, and there's been a few posters elsewhere who've mentioned relatives overseas having it.
Given probably a decent proportion of this sites users would be in the lower risk age ranges it wouldn't surprise if a number had caught it and never knew because they either developed no or minimal symptoms.Forum has what, 100k members? So potentially 26 have had it on proportion.
There’s a few posters I wouldn’t object to catching it...
I think as long as it is communicated properly it should be OK.One of the reasons is the broader message that it sends to Australians. Some will take it as, if it's ok for the nrl to play games, then it's ok for me to catch up with friends, not follow social distancing, do what I normally want to do.
Welcome aboard AFL Obsessed! How did you get interested in AFL? And more importantly Essendon?!?!Such an interesting discussion! New to Big Footy and nice to know how the other half lives. I actually live in NYC (otherwise known as the center of contagion), and we are starting our 10th week of quarantine. Restrictions have been extended for another month so I'll still be in iso when season starts.
Hi and thanks for the welcome! My boyfriend showed me a snippet of the game in 2016 and I started seriously watching in late May 2017! I love the Bombers so much and can't imagine life without them! I have my international membership tooWelcome aboard AFL Obsessed! How did you get interested in AFL? And more importantly Essendon?!?!
