    Funny thing that. I'm in Bundaberg where there's lots of backpacker hostels, with market gardening work available and there are quite a few Chinese backpackers still here, carrying on as normal.
    Life goes on.

    ***The best prevention/solution to the virus " wear masks, wash hands, clean surfaces and keep a distance ". ***

    DIDN'T YOU MEAN STOP INFECTED POLITICIANS FROM FLYING ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY ?

    if they love lock-downs so much they should all stay in Canberra and we can concrete over parliament to make them safe from the virus

    who knows in 6 months or so we might even remember where we left them

    A trial to see whether two anti-malarial drugs could prevent Covid-19 has begun in Brighton and Oxford.

    Chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine or a placebo will be given to more than 40,000 healthcare workers from Europe, Africa, Asia and South America.

    All the participants are staff who are in contact with Covid-19 patients.

    Taken as a preventative for Malaria and for military in the past, so cannot see why it wasn't prescribed for those that can take it, instead of waiting to have to be hospitalised, and heart, lungs affected.

    why

    the Gilead pill will cost $1,000 a pill or more and several regulators and directors receive income from or own shares in Gilead

    and HCQ is a generic drug costing a few dollars a pill ( OR LESS ) and almost anyone can start making pills tomorrow

    so why ... massive corruption .. and they should be punished

    probably a better track .. the survivors won't be trapped in a nightmare of medical debt

    Trump's pet is suggested to be taken EARLY or before , after you are in intensive care it is too late

    i am still waiting to see data from underdeveloped nations where malaria ravages them regularly as they are most likely to use this drug year after year

    i need to see more accurate data , but another lot are conflicted and corrupted

    so who do you believe a real estate salesmen or medical experts who stand to make extra millions from a side interest

    Trump wouldn't be taking it without good advice and I imagine that would be from his military and assosciated medical advisers who have had 1st hand experience.

    but who is giving GOOD advice

    WHO ? CDC ? Stamford University ?, John Hopkins ?various UK pillars of wisdom ? the Australian Health Minister ?

    i use the principle of what seems to do the less harm , and has some chance of AVOIDING the infection , until we know the virus very well

    Trump must have very few he can trust , the average Australian probably has even less

    this time even accurate data is withheld or distorted

    Trump could go down in history as the US president that saved his country/the world from a Chinese virus by using himself as a guinea pig.
    A man with belief.

    sorry i do NOT see clearly that is why i search everywhere for probable answers

    i can see i am being deceived in many places

    just remember the Spanish Virus started in the US and they kept silent about it and blamed the Spanish

    THIS time IF the virus escaped from a Chinese lab the US funded that research for at least 5 years ( AND trained the lead researcher )

    but since 'bat lady ' is still unexecuted and working in the lab .. the Chinese do not seem to blame her or the lab staff , the Chinese are very capable of burning the lab staff among the contaminated money

    time will tell if Trump was the best captain at the wheel .... had i been that captain i would be purging the government like Lenin

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Lenin

    a government so conflicted is worse than no government IMO , in a crisis or a coup attempt

    Well, I suppose you've got to do something while you're here but you'll probably die of something else anyway and none of this will make any difference.

    if i help more people think for themselves , i will be happy with that

    maybe it is my upbringing or my curiosity to get things done better , but i question everything and look at things from different angles

    Trump is wading his way through mixed information ( just like i am ) , so will he make the best choices .. you can only hope ( as can the US citizens )

    This doesn't directly relate to coronavirus but it shows how there are many people with physiological problems that are pushed to their limits by another source and die. In this case it is a heatwave/high temperatures that finally ends their life but this is not recorded.
    It is the reverse with coronavirus which is recorded as the cause of death no matter what other conditions the victim may have had and as a result there is an unrealistic number attributed to it.

    JP Morgan Study: COVID Lockdowns ineffective; Millions of Livelihoods Being Destroyed for nothing
    Falling infection rates since lockdowns were lifted suggest that the virus ‘likely has its own dynamics’ which are ‘unrelated to often inconsistent lockdown measures’, a report published by the financial services giant said.

    Denmark is among the countries which has [sic] seen its R [infection] rate continue to fall after schools and shopping malls re-opened, while Germany's rate has mostly remained below 1.0 after the lockdown was eased.

    well the lock-downs SEEMED to have failed spectacularly at the stated aims ( protecting old people and those in nursing homes )

    so what was the real aim noone is going to jail for the obliteration of the elderly in care facilities
