    Just thought I'd add this.

    "
    Now is not the time for unnecessary negativity, whether via social media or other forms of communication. It's a time where the community should pull together, support each other by any means, even if it's by trying to be as positive and kind as possible so that we can all get through this."
    halfbacks were invented to stop prop forwards taking over the world.

    Ladies, if a man says he will fix it, he will. There is no need to remind him every 6 months about it.

    Good to see some positivity here.
    Am I positive?...well I try to be, but at the moment I'm not,...as I've said before, I'm not sure that Aussie is going to go in hard enough,..there are too many "Gaps" to "beat the curve", which is what we have to do. Just yesterday, my wife was in a Chemists, and a guy walks in & says, "I'm positive, I just need so & so"......too much of this happening. In China or some other countries, that person would be locked up.
    Want a couple of others, well yesterday 2700 people walk of a ship,..free to go anywhere, no testing. AND, what about the 30,000 Chinese students recently coming here via Bali?
    You can google both these "happenings", if you like.
    I also have VERY grave doubts that if we don't "beat the curve", in early time, our already tightly stretched health system will be totally overwhelmed.
    I now wait to be flamed, Pickles.
    NB: Just one more aspect, don't know how many of you live near, or shop in, a decent sized supermarket,...Have you noticed how "Social Distancing" is working correctly there?......Yeah right,......like I said,...too many gaps, & some Aussies aren't on the ball.

    True or not?

    A busload of people of Chinese ancestry toured Bathurst, Orange, and Blayney and bought up all the toilet paper and tissues. Thereís talk of being required to show ID to prove one is local to be able to buy paper. (Elisabeth saw that in an FB post from a lady we know in Orange.)

    Here, at the Lightning Ridge IGA, customers are limited to one pack of toilet paper, available at the customer service desk. We didnít bother when we shopped there this morning. We think we have enough at home for the immediate future.

    Are 'busloads' of shoppers really stripping Australia's regional supermarkets bare? | World news | The Guardian

    I said ONE ship,......actually there were FOUR, all in NSW,.(just revealed on Ch 10 as I post)....also in NSW, NO observance of Social distancing on Bondi Beach,....so I ask you, what hope have we got if Aussies continue to disregard "the rules", which were designed simply, to preserve us all.
    Yeah, so YES, I AM concerned. Some people need to GET REAL,.....NOW. Pickles.

    They would have gone away disappointed. I saw that on FB too, but I really don't think its an issue to be dealt with out here.

    All I can say that if Sco-Mo & his lads & State Gubmints bugger this up there will be a place in the history books revisiting this period in our history & it wont do them any favours.

    Interesting take on the current State of Panic.

    In the coronavirus pandemic, we're making decisions without reliable data

    And where this came from.
    COVID-19: BIGGEST RISK IS NOT THE VIRUS! - FOODMED.NET

    Let's all Take a deep breath........

    ( through your nose and hold for 10 seconds, then out through your mouth. Only if it results in a hacking cough should you bother about testing.) - assuming you have other reasons for suspicions.
    - Rough and ready Rule of Thumb, only.

    EDIT: This reference to growth numbers, for those who want the nitty-gritty, stuff you won't find in our newspapers or "news" feeds.
    Coronavirus: Why You Must Act Now - Tomas Pueyo - Medium

    When you reach those graphs relating to 'Testing' rates, you'll notice 2 countries, South Korea and Bahrain stand out like the Proverbial. - Why? - Because they use an automated test kit from Sth Korea,
    South Korea exports 51,000 COVID-19 test kits to UAE - UPI.com
    and,
    South Korea turns to tech to take on Covid-19 - Asia Times Note the number they can handle per day, plus the turn-around time..
