well, might have to think twice about squashing into those Melbourne trains for a while and take the SUV to workIs actually looking like a serious situation now. Unlike SARS this one is transmissible during the incubation period, which is also longer than SARS. Which means it already could be latent in the community.
Strangely enough you need one for driving in the snow, towing and launching boats and for various jobs around the family diary farm on the weekend..........One of those typical sheep SUV drivers eh? Tut tut hno:
What happened to the good ol hatch, wagon or sedan?
stupid - so many pretend off-roaders......the only worthwhile safety feature on these vehicles is 4WD (if its constant) which makes them grip more on-road........but offload 90% of them are uselessJack it up several centimetres, stick on some bits of extra trim for the "rugged" look, slap on a new badge and its automatically a cha ching for the dealers and manufacturer. :lol:
I don't get why you think the government should pay? and underwrite the risk for individual citizens ? If the virus gets out of control worldwide, where do you draw the line in the sand? Its about setting a precedent as wellI find it difficult to get my head around the fact that our government is proposing to charge families $1,000 per child to evacuate 140 Australian children stuck in Wuhan to Christmas Island where they will be quarantined for two weeks. Not sure also what the islanders think about this along with the Biloela family who are incarcerated there either. Are other Nations charging their citizens?
why stock up and clear the shelves? Haven't you heard of Coles online? They'll deliver it too you by leaving it at your front door. All your doing is inconveniencing othersI work in healthcare and this thing Is a major concern. I stocked up last week with food etc. as I expect there is a 100% chance I will be infected and have to self isolate. This is what people are stocking up for.
I overheard a woman today saying that this will only kill old people therefore doesn’t matter. Think of your parents and grandparents and then think if this doesn’t matter. I actually expect a 200 to 400 million death count in 12 months from this globally.
so what is this telling you ?????? Buy shares in companies that have online trading platforms for trade of FMCG's - "Fast Moving Consumer Goods"Even for people who may need to self-isolate for whatever reason, they should still be able to order whatever they need from Coles or Woolies online and have it delivered such that the delivery driver isn't exposed to any risk of catching any bugs.
To be frank, the Chinese in mainland China (particularly those linked to the Chinese Communist Party) cannot be trusted.Maybe, but wet markets have long been a source of viruses, stacking exotic live animals atop of live animals which someone then eats is how stuff like SARS started and probably this. They were meant to clamp down on these practices but, well, here we are.
KelliI did a shop yesterday afternoon, have never seen the carpark so empty.
No toilet paper though, they were offering paper towels instead.
