Don't spread it but the bleach is actually something worth stashing... if the water goes to shit you use a capful or just under per litre to kill the nasties.

2 drops per lite ... so you don't need 10L of the stuff

 Actually it is a lot better here than it used to be   🙂

 

Nonetheless the amount of the second halogen that is still used in almost the whole country (Tasmania excepted) makes me wonder how the bloody hell the coronavirus could survive at all...

 

Cheers

I dropped into the local Aldi on the way home with plan to grab a lasagne.

The meat based produce in the freezer section was almost non-existent.

It's all 1 week perishable unless you freeze it, so NFI what's going on there.

Insanity is what - I'm staying away from shops fro a few days, no need to go near them. Hopefully some sanity will appear...

Fresh brocolli is another, though probably more due to the fires.

 

There's state gov advice saying to keep 2 weeks food.

The reason is in case you have to isolate if sick, but people seem to be thinking everything's going to be stopped being produced.  Morons.

I went to buy some macaroni yesterday, as there was plenty on Saturday, but it was all gone now. Plenty of Lasagna sheets though.

 

also... $1,000 would buy a lot of TP

Mitt Romney just unveiled a plan to send every American adult a $1,000 check during the coronavirus outbreak

 

That's $US 1000 ... yes it would!

ABC Coronacast podcast - 16th March - Think coronavirus only kills the old? Think again.

 

One of the biggest myths around coronavirus is that it's only the old who are at serious risk.

But evidence from China and Italy show that intensive care wards are full of otherwise healthy younger people.

 

plenty of younger people with no obvious risk factors (eg. heart disease, diabeetus) have become seriously ill.  it seems that triage decisions are one reason we have a skewed picture.

Suspect NT numbers are under reported as they aren't testing the indigenous population in communities.

 

That's a questionable one I guess J, by definition the communities are more isolated than most.

 

The vaccine is in trial but if they stick to normal methodologies it could be a year away - they may have to fast track it.

 

Meanwhile some doctors in Queensland are reporting very good results in treating the infected using an older HIV med and an almost redundant anti-malarial. Too early to say, but it looks promising.

 

Cheers

If one person in that community is infected, guess what ... due to the complete lack of hygiene there, the whole lot will have it.

Yeah, unfortunately that is true, although hygiene has been improving the past few years.

 

I'd imagine the classic aboriginal response would be to simply go walkabout - if you want social distancing you can sure get it in the outback.

 

The reach of this thing has been extraordinary but with only one identified case in the NT as at this am the chances of community contamination have to be slight - hell, most NT citizens never set foot on a community.

 

Cheers

Yes but the people kicked out from communities wander around Darwin ...
