There goes my trip away to the Victorian high country after sambar. We were leaving on Thursday. We might go and chase pigs out west instead.

Makes you wonder. They had isolated 10 suburbs as part of the latest outbreak, but what the heck, lets shut down the state border just to play it safe. It's "one-up-man-ship" by the state politicians more than anything - our state is better than your state, your state is a contagion cesspool, we look after our state better because we are better politicians and deserve to be re-elected. The economic pain from restricting trade by doing this and the long term effect on the economy really don't seem to matter to them - they only need to make it to the next election, and hopefully the pain will have subsided by the time of the election after that (with a bit of luck some other crisis will appear so to divert focus away from previous poor decisions).

The way it's going, shutting everything down every time there's a breakout of Covid/ new bad flu, there is not going to be an economy.

I wonder how many businesses go under this time around, how many jobs lost and the damage to the economy in the long term. Is this going to happen every time there's a bad flu?

Yep, the craziness continues. Believing that there will be a vaccine or effective treatment is driving this knee jerk reaction.


It looks like Sweden's rate is flattening out now. Death rate was kinda high (7% against reported cases) but we'll see how that pans out long term.

5 months to let it run it's course? We're holding it back for prolonged pain and pretty much ignoring the consequential damages. Maybe we need to start accepting that our life span is now reduced but at least get on with normal life again.

Seven percent death rate seems high compared to world figures, which appear to average out at around, .07% percent overall...much higher for the elderly and vulnerable, but low for the young and healthy. But like you say, lockdowns probably just prolong the issue and destroy the economy.
