Imagine being Bill Gates right now.

You spend 30 years of your life and $50 billion of your own dollars supporting humanitarian causes. You directly save hundreds of thousands of lives in South East Asia by providing anti malaria netting to half of a continent, you drop infant mortality rates throughout the entire developing world by funding vaccine programs including vaccinating 40,000,000 children for polio, and, amongst a plethora of philanthropic endeavors, you fund free educational platforms like Khan Academy so people can have free access to high quality education.

Then after donating half of your wealth to charity and pledging 90% of the remainder to charity in your will..

Arguably doing more to better life on earth for humanity than any other human being to ever live.

You then hop on the internet only to find a million scientifically illiterate ******* imbeciles that are using the very computers you pretty much invented in the first place to call you a child murdering arch villian antichrist because they watched a YouTube video made by some other yokel with the comprehension of a ******* potato.

I'm not one of those operators and definitely not the aussie pride f**k china type but I believe this whole thing has gone way overboard but I've made that known from the start.

You have agreed.

The problem I have with crap like that all over FB is

a) Half of it is factually incorrect, or misleading
b) The idiots who share it generally take it as gospel and don't bother reading/fact checking at all
c) It continues to fuel and generate a hatrid towards China.

I follow 'Food Ranger' on Facebook - Canadian dude who travels around trying street food in different countries, mostly Asian.. he had a video from 2017 of street food I Wuhan and you should see the hate he's copping for it - a video made about food 3yrs ago in some random city, none the wiser of what would eventuate in 2020 and he's being ripped to shreds.

Must be an awful existence not trusting the people who help you stay safe, healthy for free, fed, clothed, with clean drinking water, money when you're unemployed and a whole raft of other things we take for granted yet some arsehat on Facebook tells you the planes are dropping chemtrails on you and you buy into it. Makes you wonder, who is putting their pants on for them in the morning?

I don't take too much notice of stuff on Facebook TBH. What i have a problem with is all the crap on the commercial TV networks etc dedicating entire shows 7 days a week scaremongering because it fascinates people. It attracts viewers which attracts advertising dollars. Never mind the country on it's knees copping an absolute caning. I've abided by the rules, done the right thing but it's all the other bullshit that goes with it is what pisses me off.

also, imposing mandatory cloth masks to prevent too much oxygen to people's brains, and spraying beaches and streets with bleach, as well as spraying chemical airborne disinfectants from airplanes over densely populated areas have been known to do miracles for people's lungs affected by this strange virus...

If i was summing out my thoughts on the whole Coronovirus event it would be something like this:

-Do i think China deliberately released this..........NO, do i think one day a government would consider using chemical or biological weapons for personal gain yes, its probably already happened.

-Do i think China majorly stuffed up in the early period of Coronovirus, yes just like a kid about to get into trouble they absolutely panicked and made some seriously bad decisions. I do believe there needs to be some sort of repercussions for this.

-Have Australia handled Coronvirus well...........yes very well. Do i think there needed to be a balance between minimizing deaths whilst also protecting the future generations financial prospects absolutely.....the time will tell on that part of it.

-Yes i have been surprised at how quick the government can enforce laws regarding our freedoms. Happy to give benefit of the doubt given the scale of the event but is a watch this space to see what happens in coming years when less major crisis happen.

-Do i think there would be individuals and organisations taking advantage of the current situation...absolutely. Just like when mother nature strikes and people start looting there is always people/businesses happy to profit whether that is financially or for some other reason at the expense of other peoples loss.

Has anybody died of any other illness in the US recently or they all covid related? Somebody was talking about doctors bumping up numbers earlier, that wouldnt happen would it?



Do not know how true this is its on the WWW

Stats show 8,000 Deaths a day in America pre COVID

Also have seen various comments from doctors that patients that who have died with chronic multiple illnesses guess what COVID is shown as cause on the death certificate.

Also some are now saying hospitals who record it as Covid death that hospital gets up to $13,000 per death in subsidies.

If its true ???? only in America they can make money from peoples demise.

So my question to every one is pre Covid 8,000 death per day in America

So can any one now answer what is the daily death count for patients with out COVID in America ?????

So my rough calculation is 8,000 deaths per day pre COVID times that say by 60 Days = 480,000 normal everyday deaths.

So what is the true figure ??????

I have very inquisitive mind


Thoughts anyone.


Very interesting stats

I read somewhere (in fact think someone put it on here as well?), that if someone passes away with COVID related/like symptoms etc that is recorded accordingly.

Whether they go back over those results at a later date who knows.

They aren't attributing each death solely to COVID-19 and the part about related or like symptoms is important and its the part people like to skip out.

Junior has had a runny nose, bit of a cough for a few days so he's off to be tested this morning.

Dr said it's purely precautionary and it will help bump up the stats for 21-30 year olds, not that he's happy with it but is willing to play his part in the process.

As we work together I've been home since Monday when he left work to come home, I'll be home until he gets his test results back sometime tomorrow.

Interesting precedent, the Yorke Peninsula has cancelled their netball season for 2020. Be interesting to see what, if any, other country competitions follow suit. Understandable given the leagues will be given protocols to follow, hard to do so in the regions.

Think I read Whyalla footy league calling off their season. As the guy said, they have 14’s, 18’s, B and A Grade, supposed to clean all the change rooms between games, who is going to do this. Just too much work and all too hard.
