Hopefully the numbers continue to drop, alls good whilst they do, be interesting to see when things get back to a little normality what happens, only takes one or two to have it, get out in public and away we go again.

Hearing a tentative date from sources of early May for a few things opening again )(dependant on numbers obviously) however dont believe that involves the playing of any sport at this stage.

Yeah, it would have to be gradual, I'd be thinking it would be a Monday for pubs to stop every Barry flooding the joints on day 1.

Just keep the over 70s locked up, the rest of us can go back to normal. Its what shouldve happened to start with along with control of people entering Australia.
Im amazed the figures arent higher given the amount of people out shopping here in the barossa every day. We are meant to be a high risk cluster but thats obviously not the case. Something isnt adding up.

still a big chance of the numbers to rise, there was talk of a second wave possibly hitting in a few weeks

Once people are out and about again i think it will rise again, hopefully only marginally

That’s the approach Sweden took and its running rampant there. It’s a method that just doesn’t work

we need to get infection happening otherwise it will be an issue until they have a vaccine and we as a country cant finacially sustain that. Keep the o;der generation safe and let nature take its course, well thats if you call a man made weapon nature. **** the Chinese

Our issues so far are minor compared to the USA and Europe. You seriously can’t just lock up the elderly for 12 months and then go on running society as per normal thinking we’ll be fine. Large amounts of young and middle aged people still would die as hospitals become triage War zones and won’t be able to cope. Good luck if you have family members with asthma, respiratory or other health conditions. Right now **** the footy. We got bigger issues to get on top of.

Most of the worst affected countries are just coming out of winter, we are just about to head in to winter. Not in the clear just yet. Added to that is that in South Korea there have been 51 cases of people who have recovered from the virus and are now re-infected.

If people can continue to be reinfected then we are going to be forced to open everything up and make those vulnerable take their own precautions, whilst sticking to 1.5m social distancing.

We simply can’t stay ‘shut’ for 12 months. It simply isn’t a option.

This is nature’s way of depopulating an over crowded planet which is the truth whether we like it or not or whether it’s to harsh. As humans we cant protect everyone so we can all live to 110. It’s not sustainable or viable.

Thats all well and good until it takes yours or a loved ones life.

At the moment we are doing great and the measures are good but that all changes if people start getting secondary infections.

I have heard of nurses being laid off and on reduced hours because there are no patients.

Can anyone confirm this?

Would be from private hospitals. Most of their business is elective surgery which is cancelled.

Confirmed. Speaking of the Lyell Mc only, all casual nurses have been told there is no work and permanents have been encouraged to take A/L. Currently 3 wards closed there.

Nobody is going to hospital unless its an emergency or they think they have Corona. Once this is over all the hypochondriacs out there can resume there social outings and get back to overcrowding our health system.

Been to the docs a coupla times last few weeks and was surprised by how dead it was. Chatting with the doc I mentioned “goes to show many patients you get that don’t really need to be here”. She agreed completely.

Be great if that’s one of the things that changes as a result of the Chinese virus.

I cant help but think that this is only worse than other outbreaks over the years because of the effects of social media. We are being played by the Chinese government who has the WHO in their pocket.

Geez i hope thats sarcasm?
Dude you need to do some reading if that's not the case.
But I'm sure the families of the 95000 that have died might have a different view.
