Australia recorded its 1000th case today.

I don't think there are any cases yet within an hour of where I live.

Bondi Beach on Friday:

A wide shot of a large amount of sand and water, with many people on it.

Saturday:

A large number of people go about their usual beach-going lives on Bondi Beach.

Sunday: Closed!

from the comments of this video:

 

I was confirmed positive Covid 19 today. Better now. My symptoms: Monday evening: face feeling flush and headache. Tuesday: Minor upper respiratory mucus and low grade fever. Tues night the worst body aches I've had ever that i recall. Felt like i was in a bad car accident. Weds: Aches continue & low grade fever. Weds evening, fever broke. Friday morning aches resolved. Never had a cough. But did have to clear some mucus few times a day from throat.

yeah I've had all of those symptoms in the last 10 days or so, apart from i only had very mild aches that I wouldn't have really put down to anything if there wasn't this coronavirus issue everywhere. no real cough other than every now and again clearing some mucous, mild headache (easily banished with paracetamol), hot feeling face, bit hot under the armpits and slightly flushed. had a little bit of an upset stomach as well for 2 days, but nothing major. mostly feel perfectly alright now, and if I had been living under a rock and hadn't heard of covid-19 I wouldn't have given the above a second thought.

Big shout out to the homeopaths, osteopaths and acupuncturists for keeping us all safe in these troubling times. 

Did you hoard a whole bunch of essential oils?

Can Asians like takeover the world already lol? They seem to know what they are doing. Especially given the US trajectory looks like the worst yet.

Japan were the first of the developed economies to disproportionately grey as well, so a high percentage of the population would be demographically vulnerable.

Didn't the Spanish Flu start in Kansas or something?

Singapore and South Korea are both using massive tracking efforts that have serious privacy implications. Along with Japan, it’s already been a societal norm to wear masks there for some time (a couple of decades or so).  
China’s incompetence resulted in this being worse than it needed to be. Plus their tracking efforts are even more draconian than South Korea and Singapore. 
 

then you have fuckwits like this trying to normalize those approaches: https://www.technologyreview.com/s/615370/coronavirus-pandemic-social-distancing-18-months/

so yeah while the Korean efforts at testing should be applauded, their tracking shit is unacceptable.

Ok, so, daily dose of french cringe.

This is Montparnasse train station, this morning, during the lockdown you know ?  all this Parisian fucks are fleeing to their secondary residence, while spreading the virus everywhere, I'm speechless...

maddow, msnbc flagship, calls on networks, including her own, to stop live broadcasting trump press conferences, because he is actually behaving like a compulsive liar throughout this, and spreading harmful misinformation. and she's right.

yeah. few realise how intrusive those approaches are, i'm guessing. plus, they are forced to keep it that way until a vaccine becomes available. which is next year at its most positive estimate. likely takes even longer.

it's easy to laugh at the western countries as incompetent. and to an extent i agree with the criticism. there needs to be more testing. but the reality is, i'd expect large unrest if those methods would be applied here.

and more importantly, when a test for anti-bodies becomes available (which is a matter of weeks, btw!) and there's options for large scale and fast tests for anti-bodies, you can scan the population for immunity. you can free those immune from the lockdown.

in the meantime though, those healthcare systems are going to be tested to the limit. which is where my biggest worries are.

Avoid Humans Wash Everything EP imminent. ♥️

Bizarrely, it also works the other way around (avoid everything, wash humans), btw. Such is the crazy that we live in right now.

don't think that graph presents meaningful information though. there's a structural underreporting because people aren't being tested. and you'd rather see a "per capita" on the y-axis. US and Spain look equally severe, but these are vastly different countries in population-size. That's apples and oranges. don't think ft is doing a good service here.

for some data and graphics i prefer

https://ourworldindata.org/coronavirus

it's true.. i've yet to see any charts/graphs that don't require some context to figure them out and think what the true numbers are. i think charting actual cases that are confirmed has some merit though comparing them to other countries who have had different methods and data sets is confusing. it's hard to know what's happening other than "cases increasing"

 

@dr lopez  so sorry.  hope for the best.

Same thing planned in UK. Emergency legislation (unscrutinised), to last for 2 yrs - and will not be reviewed at all in that period. 

Potentially commencing middle of next week. 

Powers to arrest, detain indefinitely and relocation of people "suspected" of being infected. And a lot more.

but Entorwellian wants to believe it. he wants to think the absolute worst is going to happen.

not quite sure why.
