Indeed. All the best guys and gals, it's going to be tough, but it will all be over one day.

At least the new cases don't seem to be exponentially increasing at the moment, and lets hope the mask rules reduce the spread.

As for the people who break the rules (ASF members or not), you are a bunch of idiots.

At least martial law has been instituted for the dissenters.

and for all the hearing impaired, those for whom lip reading has become much more problematic.
Doubtless the genii behind this will grant the hearing impaired an exemption!

Edit: And it will be celebrated as the best thing since the invention of motorbike ashtrays!

Sunscreen. Check.
Mask. Check.
Teeth. Check.

Whilst this is happening in Victoria, it needs to be seen as a national problem and approached accordingly in my view.

Much as we've done with every other disaster for at least half a century be that fire, flood, bridges collapsing or whatever. Don't argue about the detail of state borders and who's paying, just do whatever can be done. :2twocents

Absolutely Agree!! It would be the most un-Australian thing to do to not help our Victorian mates.

And be ready in advance to open our icu in qld wa for southern Australia patients in the coming months.
We had terrible examples in France of patients airlifted or driven to free hospital beds outside cluster zones and being sent back as they lacked paperwork..make sure it does not happen here.
we are seing our first and probably only wave on its way

We have managed KNOWN cases exceptionally well in Australia. I dont think importing the sick into dedicated hospital wards should be an issue, if the Victorian facilities cannot keep up. I pray that they don't get to that level, but my fear is, it is not looking good. I trust the other states are working on the logistics NOW in unison.

Mr Andrews said around 400 health workers currently have a coronavirus infection. (Today's press conference)
Tragically a number of them will died and many will have on going problems preventing their return to work / normal life.

Not many occupations where that is acceptable these days.

Riles me that the cause is failure to just do the basics and follow the rules like the inconvenience of wearing a mask for the sake of others.

I am by any definition, both from and now in, Victoria (northern 'burbs of Melb), although I self-identify as Tasmanian, having in a past time time also self identified as a Territorian. I've never actualy used the adjective "Victorian".

I get really depressed every morning when I look up the daily disaster stats.

Oh well, as Her Majesty who reigns over us said: "We'll meet again ..."

Dunno how the rest of ASF sees things, but seems to me the only thing that's stopped a vigorous demonstration of the public ill-will to the Andrews / ALP government, is the fact we're all locked down.
Otherwise the rotten fruit would be flying thick and fast.

Stay well,
P

It seems weird that it went so out of control in Victoria. Andrews didn't exactly go in soft at the beginning. He probably had harsher measures then nsw.

Weather and temperature
Those may have a bearing however not really proven as the northern hemisphere is having major issues with infection rates, still maybe they will increase with the onset of winter.

The major issue is people and their behaviour its the only way the virus will spread.
