Re: Coronavirus

Exactly Seiffert, which is why what NSW is doing makes sense. It will be interesting to see what the other states do when out breaks happen. I'd judge Queensland more on their prison outbreak last year rather than their recent hotel fiasco. Melbourne held their nerve recently. SA would have gone wit...

Re: Coronavirus

Worldometers.info has surpassed 400,000 deaths in the US. Most news agencies refer to the Johns Hopkins page which is at 391k. Given that they are averaging about 4000 deaths a day at the moment, it will no doubt tick over the 400k by inauguration day. What a legacy for Trump.

I don't think that any of the states with the possible exception of WA have the appetite to lock down unless contact tracing capacity is exceeded, assuming that it is not the UK strain. Victoria didn't this time. Queensland didn't in August. SA did, but their premier was clear in saying that was bec...

Re: Coronavirus

Yeah just reading the PM's presser from yesterday. Because it's 70% more transmissable they want to give contact tracers a "chance to get ahead".

I guess that means a longer lock down if contacts come back positive.
