The Virus

Recommended Posts

Must say the mathematical probabilities relating to reported cases overseas by comparison to the number of reported cases in Wuhan itself makes me think that China are massively under reporting. Wuhan and surrounding areas have a population of 13 million. There are now around 50 cases reported outside China with only 1250 approximately within China.

At its simplest that suggests that a half million citizens of Wuhan have travelled overseas during the incubation period

Something not quite right perhaps.

absolutely correct.....13 million people supposedly "quarantined" by the Chinese government.....how are they fed?  Plenty of pictures of closed railway stations with PLA soldiers in the front.  No pictures of the trucks, farmers etc going in and out that are needed to feed all these people. 

Build a hospital in 2 weeks.....as if the PLA didn't have mobile army hospitals to house multitudes quickly!  More propaganda to make it look like they are actually doing something.  Thousands of people "quarantined" in one facility...that only guarantees the virus will spread as the Diamond Princess scenario has shown in Japan.

What about the lack of initial information from the (communist leadership) when they were first aware of the virus?

How many people left there before the crackdown on travel kicked in?

China is increasing looking like a country who deliberately delayed/understated its reporting to impact the Western economies.

I have very little doubt the CCP are delighting in the Wests current troubles.

They must be made to pay a heavy price if their lying and delays can be proven.

It's a tough one. I wouldn't trust China as far as I could throw them, but I find it far more likely that their initial response of 'nothing to see here' was to save face, rather than deliberately impact western economies. Although, as you say, the CCP are probably privately delighted at the current state of play in the west.

I'd be highly skeptical of any foreign inquest into China's initial response. There's too much political influence - China, of course, will deny everything, and the US will go to any lengths necessary to divert attention from their own comical incompetence back onto China. 

Interesting times.

I see plenty wrong with the brutal regime in China (also see plenty wrong with the brutal regime in Washington) - but I'm an Andrews man. And a Berejiklian man. All the Premiers (and Scomo, albeit a bit reluctantly) did a great job in protecting us from the virus. Saved thousands of lives.

Didn't say anything in defence of the CCP.  Only made an observation that a lack of information from a government is not restricted to Communist regimes.

 As for being an Andrews man, I confess that I am a fan.  Living here in Brisbane I think that Harris is perhaps the best fullback in the comp right now.  Ni xuyao fangsong wo de pengyou. 😘

Even though he openly supports the brutal regime of the CCP?  That tells me a lot about you.

Signs documents committing the State to unknown agreements with the CCP and won't release the details of what it entails, perhaps that's the type of government you prefer.

So does Twiggy Forrest. Everybody trades everywhere. Where do you draw the line? Should we trade with Indonesia (disgusting behaviour in West Papua, East Timor). Russia (disgusting behaviour in Syria, Crimea etc) The US (the most appalling example of international aggression since Vietnam, the invasion of Iraq, not to mention a racist administration)?

Of course you're a fan, you don't live in Melbourne.  Daniel Andrews has turned the worlds most livable city into a dystopian wasteland with the full backing off his Chinese masters. Mandatory masks now,  mandatory vaccines next.   Just watch.

To the people who voted for him, well you get what you vote for.   They were given plenty of warning.

Huh?  Read my post properly AND the one after it.  Jeezus, some people are trigger happy. 

 

If you want my comment on Victoria's Premier, the very least could do is show some humility, put his hand up to the up to the quarantine failures, apologise, and refrain from blaming the victims.  He is the head of a general government of incompetence and the buck stops with him. His government's poor handling of the current crisis and failure to accept responsibility, shows that his position is no longer tenable.  I can understand him not throwing the towel in right now but when things start to flatten out again, he has no option other than to leave.

Mandatory masks is a good thing in my opinion.  The mask is to protect others, not the wearer, and as we can be contagious before showing symptoms, it is an effective way of stopping the spread if everyone is wearing a mask.  As for vaccinations, I doubt very much that they will be mandatory, but they will be highly recommended, as they should be... or are you an anti-vaxer?

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
