It's been nice knowing you!
No, he's a carpenter !!!
FFS, valued trade and all that
Must know what he's talking about, just like Greta on climate change
So if you right wing nut jobs want to attack the kid this nut job is no better
All I know is that with the QLD border closed they now say I can't go to Sydney to get the rest of my stuff ...... but at least I'm here with Wes so I feel happy
I'm not going to read an article by someone with no credentials in the given field. Why waste my time!!
Would seem I'm not the only one here thinking he's unqualified.
So you're here now? Didn't close the border fast enough...
He's a ****ing carpenter FFS with no credentials
My girl wants a Merc soft top, got any in stock
Where is the love ???
Nicole and I are still working here, yes.
This money train (called the mining industry) is not going to stop............................who do you think is paying for the billions of dollars the government is handing out to everyone like it's Monopoly money.
I'll keep working 6 days a week, those who have required a government handout can thank me later.
In all seriousness but, we are still working and we haven't heard otherwise at the moment. They are putting things in place at work to minimize contact like staggered start times, staggered lunch times, less people taking the cage underground etc.
And if they decide to close the doors until further notice, Nicole and I are very fortunate to have enough annual leave available to take 2 years off full pay, so it's all good.
But I do feel for a lot of friends who will definitely struggle after hearing about how many friends have lost their jobs at pubs/clubs over the last few days.
Good for you Jimmy
Take the 2 years off and come and live in the real world for a while ...... bring the car and we can go for drives
I would suspect Mt Isa would be very safe from this virus anyway due to the isolated community .... just be wary of blow ins mate
In the air... with the droplets of virus
My Mum and Dad will be finished if this virus takes hold here and they get it.
Dad is old and Mum has some complex medical conditions. They both struggle daily with their breathing, this is not good news for them at the moment.
Just talked to my Mum this morning and she told me my Dad went to his regular GP visit yesterday morning and ended up coughing all last night.
The Brother and I have put our parents in "lockdown" for as long as it takes. With the exception of their GP visits fortnightly, they do not leave their house and we do their shopping for them now also.
Cheers mate, unfortunately I can't take 2 years off life to enjoy myself at the moment lol.
Kids, work, parents consume 100% of time. Still haven't driven the Ferrari since I replaced the failed alternator idler bearing September last year.
And you are 100% spot on JM! We are very isolated out here and IF we do get any cases of this virus out here it will be because of the FIFO mining which they are still allowing.
That's all we need, one person on a plane from a capital city to bring this virus here which will definitely wipe out some locals.
The gist of his article is that nearly everyone dying of CV19 in Italy was already sick with something else
"And it’s also why the death rate in Italy is so high—these people were already very ill. I can see why the Italians are distinguishing between dying FROM the virus and dying WITH the virus."
He also says:
"First, it lets us know what we need to do to prevent the Italian outcome. We have to, must, keep the virus out the medical system. "
We need to seriously quarantine the sufferers away from other sick people.
We need to set up testing facilities at all medical centers and test the medical personnel daily.
In areas with a number of COVID-19 infections, we need to set up separate field hospitals. There are a number of commercial versions of these that are expandable by adding modules, and are pathogen-tight, with airlocks at the doors, HEPA exhaust filters and negative air pressure maintained throughout. We know how to do this stuff, we’ve just got to do it.
We need to test in-hospital patients at the time of their arrival and continue to test them at intervals during their stay.
We’ll have to be very careful with visitors to patients in the hospitals
And then does a 180 degree flip with;
"So let’s end this crazy American lockdown, there’s a whole raft of work to be done shoring up our medical sector to withstand the coming wave, and it can’t be done at home with our heads in the sand, hundreds of thousands of people not working, jobs disappearing daily, and our economy in a shambles …"
For people saying that this is no worse than the flu season, and no one bats ( pardon the pun ) an eyelid about Flu deaths, or that people were already sick and going to die anyway, just ask yourself, why are the hospitals in Italy, Spain etc suddenly overloaded with people dying at a much greater rate than they were just 6 weeks ago ?.
And if CV19 wasn't serious, why did the Chinese, who more than anything let nothing get in the way of making money, decide to quarantine large parts of the country and finally even take steps to ban eating cats and dogs ( https://www.bangkokpost.com/world/1872339/chinese-city-of-shenzhen-to-ban-eating-cats-and-dogs).
Bats are still on the menu though.
25yo otherwise healthy male in USA is in an induced coma and on a ventilator because he contracted the virus...plus two kids under 10 have tested positive with it for the first time.
During a trip around China in late 17, the guide made a comment that the Cantonese in Hong Kong eat any thing where as the Han don’t, the Han eating bats proved him wrong. I did go to an open food market in Lechang, wow what an eye opener, surprising that it didn’t smell to bad probably because it had fires on the outside to keep flies away. Didn’t see any bats but did see frogs and we thought only the French ate them...
We've all got problems...
Thank ****, Uber eats are delivering bat soup to me shortly
Yeah just ordered a bat kebab from my lebbo mate down the road....
I'm not sure where the 180 degree flip is. Ending the lockdown of healthy people is not the inverse of quarantining the sick.
The lockdown is intended to slow hospital admissions, but I question if the serious harm being done to hundreds of thousands of mainly low income people is justified, when the examples of overrun health systems are almost always Italy and Spain (as you've used).
Anyone with experience of the Italian health system knows it was dysfunctional before this virus started.
"Right, I'm ready to leave, I've got nothing, let's go!"
Give me a call.
Italy’s health system is worse than 3rd world Africa’s health system....Plus the fact that 90% of people in Europe are heavy smokers which causes their own underlying issues..
NFW. Africa doesn’t have a health system.

Neither does Italy...
yes we did
