The Virus

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 does communism have to do with corona virus reporting? Just interested in the nexus.

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.

Is a lack of information from a government restricted to Communist regimes?

Want to amend your post, anything you want to add' or are you an Andrews man who can see no wrong in the brutal regime of the CCP?

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?

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium. While it’s great to see the numbers of lo

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    TICKETS PLEASE by The Oracle

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi

    ELECTRIFYING by George On The Outer

    What more can they throw at the Demons of 2021? Covid restrictions, hubs, aircraft circling between airports before landing for games and now a match stopped for 30 minutes to give a flagging opponent its second wind? To date, none of those distractions has swayed the team from their winning objectives. The game against West Coast in Perth can be marked on their report card as another positive outcome after yet another test. There was much at stake for both sides.  Melbourne had t
