    I said before, that the decisive actions of the authorities are constantly running about 3 weeks too late. :(

    As of Sunday, ALL people arriving home will now be in enforced isolation, rather than just voluntary isolation - if done 3 weeks ago, before the whole cruise ship disembarked in Sydney without any checks, we would have had a better chance here, of slowing the increase of cases.

    And we seriously should all be in total lockdown already, UK or France style, but the authorities are still juggling the financial situation v health situation. We will all go into lockdown at some stage, which will cause the same financial burden, so why aren’t they doing it earlier? Same financial implication whether sooner or later, but a much better health chance, if done earlier than later. o_O

    Having been involved in the shocker of a fire season, I observed that people and authorities, fall into 3 categories when facing a possible crisis.

    1. Complacency - Denial of the situation, and doing very little about it, thinking it will not actually affect them.

    2. Competence - Planning, and trying to put effective contingency plans into place early.

    3. Chaotic - Over reacting, and panic, as the situation suddenly becomes obvious, which never ends well.

    If option 1 is chosen, the result then bypasses option 2, and goes straight to option 3. Case in point, the US current situation. :eek:






    Maybe this is just natures way of saying to the human population, enough is enough, you didn’t listen, so this is the result? :rolleyes:

    Just my 2 cents worth, and personal observation of what’s going on.

    Natural pattern for a population that isn't contained by a natural balance due to lack of food , space, predation is to shit itself out of existence, turn on itself, succumb to disease.

    This won't change much as the death toll from the virus will be more than compensated for by less deaths that would have occured from breathing polluted air.

    And no chance we will learn anything.

    A foretaste of the economic chaos that will occur within the next 20 years from global warming.

    If the government locked down when they brought people back from Wuhan China and every person that entered the country went into compulsory quarantine like in Darwin,we wouldn't have anywhere near the trouble we are in know and in the future. The country might of been able to operate normal and only the Australian citizens travelling that are coming from overseas have to be quarantine for a minimum 14 day period.

    No real benefit to the environment yet. If it knocks out 5-6 billion out of the equation it will be very beneficial.
