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.


Said the same thing to my missus who works at Lyell Mc.

Also If Employers didn't demand that employees get a sick certificate most doctors would see a reasonable drop in patients.

How is this helping anyone?
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.


People die, its a fact of life. 95000 is bugger all in a world population of 7.8 billion. That is 0.0012%. Most of them have lived a lifetime already.
You are obviously one who has been seduced by the social media commentary.
It is not worth killing our entire economy for generations to come but worse than that we are handing control of the world to communist China, **** me look at the communist rules we are currently experiencing in Australia. The police dont need any further encouragement.
Continue with social distancing but lets get back to work. By the way i am still working so there is no bias from that regard.

Celebrity chef Pete Evans is spruiking a $15,000 light machine to recharge the body and he claims it can treat “Wuhan coronavirus” with light ‘recipes’.

The BioCharger NG Subtle Energy Platform, retailing on Pete Even’s website for $14,990 claims to be a “subtle energy revitalisation platform. Four transmitted energies stimulate and invigorate the entire body to optimise and improve potential health, wellness, and athletic performance”.

The Channel Seven My Kitchen Rules star said in a live post the BioCharger “is a pretty amazing tool that will take you down some a rabbit holes and it will take me an hour or two to explain it”.

He went on to say there were “a thousand different recipes and a couple on there for Wuhan coronavirus”.

Dietitian, and member of Friends in Medicine and Science Mandy-Lee Noble said it appeared the BioCharger was like a plasma lamp.

“It is a glorified plasma lamp that make your hairs stand on end, and the recipes are different colours, it’s a recipe from the lamp, putting on a different colour show,” she said.

“It says on the clip online, ‘just like you charge your phone, this charges you’.

“It is probably no threat to people but if people think this in any way will treat or prevent COVID-19 infection, that risks our community response to the pandemic, that is dangerous, it’s an indirect harm.”

Mr Evans has increasingly pushed an alternative health agenda, including sharing anti-vaccine propaganda on to his 1.5 million followers.

Last year amid the Samoan measles epidemic, he posted a picture of himself on social media with anti-vaccine proponent Robert F Kennedy Jr and cited ‘the important work he is doing’ complete with a love heart emoji.

Robert F Kennedy Jr is the founder of Children’s Health Defence which funds a large chunk of anti-vax advertisements and misinformation on Facebook. Critics have also roasted Mr Evans for giving out health advice without any formal training.

The machine, which looks like a colourful food processor claims ‘Energies used in the BioCharger are Light, Frequencies & Harmonics, Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMFs), and Voltage. These are all natural energies found in nature.”

“Just sit comfortably in front of the Biocharger and select a frequency recipe from the menu,” the online video says on Evan’s website.

“It just goes to show our Health Care Complaints Commission and Therapeutic Goods Administration and health minister Brad Hazzard how much of a risk Pete Evans is to the community and they need to take action to shut Evans down and Channel Seven needs to stop giving him a platform,” Ms Noble said.

Professor of medicine and public health advocate John Dwyer said “this man has for a long time been dangerous and ignorant and in this case anyone making false claims about coronavirus it is not just nonsense but dangerous nonsense.”

“If he is selling a therapeutic machine, he is required to submit details to the TGA and seek registration on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods before he can market it or make claims for it, it is along with many other similar machine that make wild claims, is a dangerous piece of nonsense. I am sure he has been nowhere near the TGA,” Prof Dwyer said.

A search of the ARTG brings up no listing for the BioCharger.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration announced it would investigate the BioCharger.

A spokesman for the Federal Department of Health said “the TGA will investigate the product you have referred and take action in relation to any illegal advertising of therapeutic products, including advertising on social media.

“The TGA is monitoring noncompliance, particularly in relation to the advertising of products that claim to prevent or cure COVID-19,” the spokesman told The Daily Telegraph.

“The TGA has issued a warning about advertising relating to COVID-19 which reminds consumers that, in Australia, the advertising of therapeutic goods is regulated by the TGA and must meet certain requirements in the Therapeutic Goods Act. “

Mr Evans has been contacted for comment.

Weirdly despite me having no job and the missus working for home we probably see less of each other since locking down!
I'm always in the lounge and she's always in the bedroom catching up on her pommy tv shows.
I used to spend more time in the bedroom when I worked and me and the missus used to spend much more time together at the pub! :lol:

Don't be too concerned. It's important to consider rolling 5 to 7 day averages - how was this week compared to last week etc.

Correct. The 36 beers I've had in the last 36 hours only equates to 5-7 per day on a rolling average, thanks for the reassurance.

In case it’s of assistance to anyone, catch.com has toilet paper and pump soap available. It’s only a 6-pack of bog roll available, but better than none I guess.

You’ll be waiting 2 weeks for it at least.
I ordered clothes almost 2 weeks ago and still haven’t seen them.
In transit apparently.

I’ve used catch for online shopping for a couple of years now but their delivery times are getting worse.
Probably not their fault entirely as I assume freight companies and couriers are flat out.

If it’s coming via the AP network you could be waiting a bit longer. Massive backlog currently
