    The coronavirus conspiracy

    You are dealing with a virus which has no symptoms in some people.

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    no queues . mid morning it was, and given our usual efforts, it was damn early for us. It could have been 5.45pm re the people there. No sausage sizzle, no ladies selling raffles tickets, no stalwarts handing out " how to vote " stuff. probably the most civilised voting day I've experienced in a while. A guy on the door was limiting those for entry is all. but as I've said, that was barely necessary. I mean they've had it so's you can vote up to about two weeks before the actual day, so I'm guessing that's why the no crowd. Would be in the more populated areas they'd get "enforcers " on duty. we took our own pens. still had to lean on the same surface as everyone else though such a fucken pessimist aren't ya ?! ... what did scruffy1 say to me ? oh yeah ... Lighten up ... grrrr

    They'll be a 2nd round infections when people go back to work in China.

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    China got real serious about country-wide lockdown after Jan 24 it had 1300 cases at the time trajectories from a similar number of cases on:

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    We would have to agree to disagree on conspiracy threads, I find them quite interesting but usually to disabuse. With Wuhan I think it is somewhat different, as Scruffy mentioned their bio-labs leak, in particular some guy was jailed for years for selling animals that had been experimented upon - hardly sanitary. Apparently China actually does not have a lot of bio-labs and there is no suggestion they are involved in developing bio-weapons. The labs are more akin to the CDC in Atlanta but not as secure it seems. In the end it does not matter, CV is here, we have to deal with it and it could in all probability have gone wild anyway, corona viruses are far from rare. However if there is any truth to the suspicion at all then perhaps China will tighten its act up whilst continuing to do valuable research. China is an enigma in many ways, we have to take their numbers at face value but many experts are openly questioning the reality. Cheers

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    a) I ignored this for months because conspiracy threads are pretty boring b) coincidences tend to be rather striking, otherwise we wouldn't notice them nor call them a coincidence. How were the queues at the polls? I saw a few job ads for people to go and enforce distances

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    Hanta virus has been around a long time, it doesn't communicate human to human that we know of, it comes from rodents, particularly rats. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/hantavirus-china/ Granted Australia like every country has its share of rats but when was the last time you saw one, or even evidence of their presence ? Covid on the other hand is decidedly infectious human to human, hence all the social distancing. In reality in Australia we are still in the climb phase of the infection, perhaps we could have done more sooner but what we are currently seeing as rising infection numbers relates more to infections picked up days, possibly even weeks ago. We are not really going to know if we have stifled the progress of it through the population for a couple of weeks minimum. Essentially we are doing the right things, a tighter lock-down may still be needed but nothing could be much worse than what America is NOT doing about it. Cheers

    Same country where people eat rats and they don't have to and wonder why Hantavirus is getting out https://www.doh.wa.gov/YouandYourFamily/IllnessandDisease/Hantavirus

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    I think I did say in the OP that it was time for a corona virus thread anyway, but the rather striking coincidence of there being a high level bio-lab just meters from the Wuhan live market identified as the source of the virus does refuse to go away. Cheers

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    their bioweapons lab needs some serious patching from one of my favourite authors "Western civilization is nearing collapse as oil runs out, and the Chinese are making vast leaps forward by miniaturizing themselves and training groups of hundreds to think as one. Eventually, the miniaturization proceeds to the point that they become so small that they cause a plague among those who accidentally inhale them, ultimately destroying Western civilization beyond repair." Kurt Vonnegut, Slapstick, 1976

    So I guess this became some kind of coronaposting thread, rather than 34 pages of conspiracy fanfic?

    Do people still go on dates during this corona crisis?

    how about joint appointments at the hairdressers? imagine being able to tell your wedding guests that you met your true love while paying for a shag.

    (OK, my figures out a bit, we should be 13 million participating)

    But compared to the spike at the time of GFC ... no comparison.

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    That's only a couple of percentage points or less. Assuming the participation rate is similar to ours. We = 11 of 25 million = 44% That'd make them 44% of 330 million = 145 million... a tad over 2%
