Covid 19

On 19th March, I told my employees that I feared that curtailing Covid-19 will prove to be more damaging than the virus itself and unfortunately my fears were well founded.

Since then, I have had plenty of time to reflect on various aspects of the COVID Management Plan and I have now decided to share my thoughts through a series of articles which I call “COVID COMMENTS”.

I should make an up-front position statement that I accept the concept of closing our international borders, and of short-term movement restrictions, but I am mostly unimpressed with the way these principles have been implemented.

I should also point out that I am 76 years old, overweight and have an asthma condition, so I don’t have a cavalier attitude to respiratory viruses.

The articles which I will release over the coming days are:

  • DODGY DATA
  • COVID-19 Vs OTHER VIRAL DISEASES
  • ANALYSIS OF “ACTIVE CASES” AND HOW INFECTION OCCURS
  • AGE CARE SERVICES AND SOME COVID CLUSTER REVELATIONS
  • LEADING THE WORLD?
  • JOBKEEPER
  • LISTEN TO THE SCIENCE
  • BORDER PATROL
  • VICTORIA, VICTORIA
  • WHERE TO FROM HERE?

In my research, I found an excellent infogram which is updated every day and graphically depicts Timeline of 'open' confirmed cases, recoveries, and deaths

Dodgy Data

The matters contained in this article affect every other COVID topic that I discuss. You will see where one state "guessed" the daily number of tests conducted. You will see where the number of tests reported by one state for a single day was over 18,000 fewer than for ...

Age Care Services and Some Covid Cluster Revelations

In my previous post, I revealed that we have not stopped the importation of the virus overseas, with almost 80% of our new infections in June being contracted whilst overseas. This is not “I got it from someone who got it when they were overseas”, it is “I was ...

Listen to the Science
