That's a good point WOL. Stimulating by govt work or new currency supply to the banks first doesn't necessarily save small and medium business (and the many who work for them) who need some framework established now.

Will look for link - edit: I just tried going through some sites, can't find it. The first 3 pages of Zero Hedge are really worth a scan over the headlines, never have I ever seen so many crazy shit headlines and that's saying something. Themes: QE isn't working, Repo isn't working, funding markets frozen, market stopped Philipines, soft ATM run Austria, business being destroyed by the virus, big ones drawing on Revolver LOCs, commodity crash, market days of -10% common, limit up to limit down futures, anyway I gotta get some things done now. Feel free to play the REM song

@ I Focus
Just did a bit of reading on P2/N95 respirators.
CDC suggests that you could reuse one up to 5 times (or to manufacturers' req's) so long as it does not become moist, does not come into contact with any bodily fluids, droplets in the air, etc, and taken on and off carefully (ie with sterile gloves on, not making any contact with the mask) and is stored in a sterile location.
So they're a little more robust than surgical masks, but still can't be used indefinitely.
Just as a disclaimer, I'm no doctor or health expert, I'm just echoing things I've read and conversations I've had with people better informed than me.

Over 20 Corona Vaccine Research Labs in US / Aust. / China / Israel.
Many are funded by Bill Gates Foundation.

Note: Even though Aust Features, it's drug manufacturing base has been eroded.
Meaning we must sell out & join back of the queue for our own drug supplies.
Aust Govt can't even supply enough Flu vaccine for Oz in recent years.(Not Good!)

Aussies worked out Corona is less of a target! Answer lies in past less used drugs.

Here are those Labs closest to Distributing a Worldwide Vaccine

All early tests were random! Aids/Malaria patients crossed all countries.
Can clear a patient in 3 days...But! tbb earlier reported some cases of 18% reinfection.Hmm!
One wonders if this anomaly was due to not quite killing the virus with these said drugs.

US Big Pharm are pushing what they can corner (eg: Ebola Drugs)
China & Oz are supposedly squeezed out of Ebola, so opt for WHO Aids / Malaria Drugs

World's biggest ever captive market requires most Evil Do Gooderz.
This is the moment Dr No kills for!
So! Not the fastest or most effective but most exclusive licensed drug!

Quote from elsewhere:

“The world has changed forever.

Wealth will vanish.

How can you support an average house price of $800k in a market where there is mass unemployment, zero consumer spending, instability.

Going forward when we get through this humanitarian disaster that is about to hit us, Australians will have PTSD. They’ll never over-commit themselves financially again in their lives. It will have the same effect on people as the Great Depression.”

Where're you getting that from Blowin?
I've been doing a little bit of research on housing prices in recessions (I've been looking for a place I can afford for a while now, rather futilely, and trying to judge whether pulling the pin on that for a while might be a wise move). Doesn't seem to be a strong link between recessions and crashes in housing markets from what I've found - though intuition tells me otherwise.

I made it to 1:53 with that video and had to push myself to get there, but that said i did watch another video a few days ago that is going around trying to link this to 5G.

I mean seriously if you are going to link this virus to something in some conspiracy cover up, can we at least make it half realistic.

I dont know, maybe China are currently expanding at crazy rates in the south sea or something, i mean they can build huge hospitals in a few weeks or something.

I dont know, im not good at making up conspiracy theories, but we can surely do better than 5G

We'll know a lot more globally when we can test people not only to determine if they have the virus but also if they have had it and recovered without showing any symptoms. This test is being developed by public health England and should be available in weeks rather than months according to Chris Witty, Chief Medical Officer.
Confirmed cases in the UK are around 1500 but data modelling from Imperial College London puts the likely number of infected people closer to 50000. Many people get and don't realise, many more have mild symptoms.
The UK response has changed in recent days as new information comes from Italy and China with action now being taken to suppress and halt the outbreak rather than contain it or 'flatten the curve'.

now there's a development...

-models showing travel bans fast and early are best chance of control... "...all scenarios show" -NOW you fucking tell us! ...smoco and uni's ignored the bloody obvious... defied the bloody obvious ...selfish cunts...

-spruiked version of herd immunity is a joke, barely meets the definition, doesn't at all actually...

- highly probable it developed in bats

-seafood market almost certainly was an 'amplification event'

-US virus? all data points to a wuhan starting point

-looks like virus behaving differently, not necessarily mutating

-safest prediction will mutate, but nothing to say mutations will b worse, possibly opposite...

-hard decisions (playing god) for oz medical system going forward, ...much like those unorganised italians it seems....

conclusion: big fuck up

Now I’m back thinking the whole thing is a beat up.

Of course , I’ll argue my position like fuck either way my moods going , but right now it’s back to ......7100 dead globally ?

That’s fuck all. In fact it’s never been the numbers which has swayed me to believe it’s hectic. And it’s never been the media.

It’s always been the response of governments. Namely the response of the Chinese Government. That’s where I’ve formed the foundation of my entire opinion. The CCP went full retard with the crippling of their economy and the quarantine of 780 million people. That’s a game changing move. Unprecedented in my lifetime and unimaginable without serious shit driving it.

Western governments I can understand being swayed by public opinion and the threat to political careers to act. The media I can understand talking it up to sell newspapers/ clicks. But the CCP don’t need to be elected and they didn’t do it for click bait. And if it’s not a genuine health threat then why .....?

The Chinese government could pull off a deception at this level I guess. A few faked and leaked shots of crew getting manhandled in Wuhan. A few empty streets. Some people crying and some body bags. And then order everyone else indoors.

So I question the motivation for the entire exercise being a deception. What do they have to gain from a deception of this scale ?

Control. Ever greater control of the populace. More importantly perhaps, they get to destabilise other nations economically. First the supply shock and then the shut downs which follow around the world.

https://www.alt-market.com/articles/2403-the-economic-end-game-explained

The time line isn’t perfect as it’s a few years old and some of it is whack. A lot of it I don’t doubt at all.

From my understanding it is a genuine health threat Blowin, particularly for older people and those with underlying health issues. The mortality rate in this group could be >5%. For those not in this group and particularly young people it looks like way south of 1%.

The radical approach in China was timely as it halted the spread of the virus which if it gets into the at risk groups will overwhelm any health system. Italy were slow to act and have experienced unprecedented pressure on services. Its this situation which has promted the UK to move earlier than planned to advise people to avoid pubs, clubs, theatres etc and unnecessary social interaction. As well as advising at risk groups to stay at home for what is looking like a few months.

It seems this virus will come and go for a couple of years while immunsiation comes online and takes effect, the challenge will be in developing a strategy to protect the most vulnerable while allowing those who have had it and the less vulnerable to go about their lives.

Another way of looking at it is that Chinese authorities see a situation and react pro actively. Even though the numbers are low they could see the potential for more so acted despite the major effect on the economy.

For instance we now know that infected people in Australia travelled from a number of different countries. 2 cases from South Korea, 18 from Italy and 15 from China and there are travel bans for people entering Australia from those countries.

28 cases from the United States and no travel ban from America. That isn't a proactive response

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-17/india-is-containing-coronavirus-d...

Look at the timeline of responses in India compared to Australia. Cricket is almost a religion and still they cancelled and have postponed games. Here the AFL is still insisting on having a full season.

As an aside, I saw an old guy in the supermarket yesterday, at a guess I'd say he was well into his 70's. He was leaning on his walking stick, alone, in front of the empty toilet paper shelf reading the label on one of the last 2 packets of flushable wipes, no doubt working out if they were going to the job. It was a really sad thing to see.

Not sure about herd immunity but after seeing the supermarket yesterday I can say that Australia definitely has herd insanity

Honestly as a Victorian AFL should go on no matter what, they need to fully isolate teams from the public and coaches staff, umpires.

If we are all going to be stuck at home all winter we need AFL more than ever, AFL is the thing that gets half us mexicans through our depressing song winters.

Limitations on public gatherings shrinking, first 500, now if I'm following it correctly it's 100.

Meanwhile, today I've gotta drive up to Sydney to go to a funeral of an old friend and it's easy to make a call from a distance, not knowing the person or the circumstances, but a tougher decision from close range. The death was sudden, she went young-ish leaving behind two early teen daughters. It feels right to go along, support friends and family, remember a good life, albeit one that ended too soon.

Yet the advice has been to avoid gatherings for the sake of, ultimately, the health of seniors, something that still feels a bit abstract. What about the here and now, the life of a person who passed away in the midst of all this shit?

RIP to your friends, treasure the moments you had with them. Those moments and experiences are what we take away.

Today we have tiny, clean waves. Clouds are building and with it the anticipation of a weather change. A super fun session yesterday on floaty boards. Edit: I'm hearing personal stories of possible workplace infections. Takeaway message is you really want to organise a "work from home" plan before your workplace gets into this situation. Not after.

OK news for this morning, first something concerning, take heed if you are a bit younger:

https://nypost.com/2020/03/17/coronavirus-doctor-says-lung-scans-for-you...

You don't want this on your lungs if you can avoid it.

Secondly, my heart went out to Billie, Goofy, Zen and other business owners. There may be a solution, however:

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-17/how-small-business-is-coping-with...

It will require a re-jig of the business model, but no reason goods can't flow with distancing between businesses, couriers, and destinations. (At destination, check peer reviewed papers to see how long the virus may last on surfaces, last one I read said 3 days). At home, maybe you want a 'deliveries' basket or box near the front door. A re-jig - but it can be done.

Maybe Swellnet might put up a market place, eg

Which, as you know, is the point it’s too late. No money now for the environment, that was part of the deal in taking this action in shutting down the world. One of the main reasons I was cautious. The dominos leading to that have always been clear.

One positive I can see, is that now the entire world well and truely hates Chinas guts, we’re safe from an invasion, if indeed they were positioning for one before 2020. How many countries do you reckon would line up to defend us, if only to vent what they can’t say about the Wuhan Flu
