I agree with you, Baz.

I would also still like to know why the WHO are being banned from entering China to investigate the start of all this. How can that be allowed?

A good idea at the time to boost the economy, but as recent events have shown, not such a good idea when you don't have much of an economy left.
I agree with you, Baz.

We would not be the same as Australia or New Zealand had we adopted the same restrictions Mups...For the reasons I stated in my earlier post.

Who could stop China from saying no? China is a sovereign state that can and should decide who to allow in.

Re: Covid new strain.

The Federal Government has increased the capacity of the NT's Howard Springs Quarantine facility to cope with arrivals from the UK.

It has taken some time after total arrivals in Australia were halved in response to the UK Strain - the capacity of this faculty was increased but an evacuation scheme had to be organised because this is the cyclone season in the top end
