Re: Chinese Coronavirus

Hi

I was in Lidl this morning, all masked except for one couple, when he turned round, maskless, I looked at him and turned round and went back away from him.

He followed me.

Got a problem mate?

Yes, I am just distancing, just had a heart attack and cannot take any risks.

He went from aggressive to apologetic , apologised, pulled a mask out of his pocket and put it on.

his partner also apologised.

They are not all bad, just fed up with being told what to do.

Re: Chinese Coronavirus

Seventeen passengers from New Zealand who travelled to Sydney under the trans-Tasman bubble arrangements have been caught entering Melbourne.

The passengers flew to Sydney and got a connecting flight to Melbourne.

Melbourne is currently not accepting international travellers.

Quarantine-free travel between New Zealand and Australia is currently limited to New South Wales and the Northern Territory

Re: Chinese Coronavirus

Very interesting article o contact tracing where even the Uk gets a mention but we are lagging far behind the Asian nations.

Victoria's contact tracing system has been under scrutiny in recent weeks, while New South Wales has been held up as a gold standard.

But how does Australia measure up on a global scale?

According to one expert, we still have a way to go.

Professor Tony Blakely, from the Melbourne School Of Population And Global Health, says Australia is still in the process of scaling up its contact tracing capacity.

We're well ahead of the UK, where Professor Blakely says contact tracers have been swamped by cases.

But Australia is not yet up to speed with some East Asian countries, where infrastructure is more advanced, largely because of previous infectious diseases outbreaks like SARS and swine flu.

Re: Chinese Coronavirus

Did anyone else read about the mum who went for a Covid test but because she had to pick up her kids from school she abandoned the queue so never actually took the test.....a few days later she got a notification that her test was positive....makes you wonder how accurate the figures are.
