    You know it was a joke, right?

    I didn't bother reading further. It sounded like bs anyway.

    I think the top 1/2 % who are "well positioned" will be ok.

    The measures put in place by both Federal and State governments are the right ones, and maybe people are finally starting to get the message.

    Five of those six new SA cases yesterday were directly linked to cruise ships, incidentally.

    If we can keep the death rate at around 0.4% (where it is now) or lower, that will be a great result.

    Victorians on the beach and get tested positive on the same day?

    More questions need to be asked/answered about the testing process.

    SARS actually still exists, they just changed the testing criteria (added several parameters) which means it is now almost impossible to get diagnosed with SARS.

    Same thing could happen with COVID-19, change the testing criteria and then we see a massive decline in cases....

    I've said many times in here that I take all news with a grain of salt. Journalists have become less reliable in the last 10 years..... And the standard was already pretty low.

    1. Learn how to spell
    2. 18/4250 = 0.004 hardly quantum physics, Einstein. And it's not meant to demonstrate anything - it just is.
    3. The graph you first posted today, was 3 days out of date - THAT'S misleading. My figures were accurate to 45 mins before I posted.
    4. The second graph you posted is accurate and up to date - it's from the same government website I use to get my data.
    5. The accompanying blurb is pure BS from the MSM trying to stir things up.

    100% = 4250
    10% = 425
    1% = 42.5
    .1% = 4.25
    18/4250 = .004235 or rounded to .4%

    Yes it's really not that hard, but I suspect the point Peter is trying to make is that because we don't know the outcome of all of the positive cases we can't use that figure.

    I say we can, and it is a worthwhile figure, simply because it's the calculation that has been used from the start to indicate the seriousness of the virus.
    And from the start we have been told to expect 3-4%. Therefore Australia is tracking very well. The end.

    Sensible.

    I say one thing. You say another. That's fine. I think you're wrong. You think I'm wrong. Maybe we're both wrong!

    However, pat is now the new king of back pedalling!OLIO

    Maybe it is my distorted sense of humour, but my take on this is -
    Mar 28 - Victorians flock to the beach
    2 days later - confirmed cases drop by 50%

    Action? - EVERYONE GO TO THE BEACH!!!!!!

    :D

    I don't think you know what that word means, either. Show me one instance! At least you can spell it now (with a grammatical error).
