    And even the current US per capita death rate is about ten times that in Australia.

    Yes. So far Australia has a very low deaths/cases ratio and is 62nd on deaths/capita but I suspect many countries where the disease started later will soon overtake us on the latter.

    Also the death cases that we are getting (its a trend in many other countries as well) are all: old people and in some cases very old and very sick people (e.g. Nursing home occupants who are in the 90s)

    And as Trump recently stated they are going to die soon anyway and if the economy bursts more will commit suicide than die by the virus. So short circuit the American lock down and bring in the dollars and buy shares in funeral parlours.

    Almost certainly we will get younger cases as this thing ramps up. Young people with no comorbidities do die from it, just not often.

    Despicable attitude, every death is sad. 68 is the youngest Australian victim and could have easily lived for 20 years, that is not soon.

    Today has seen an even further reduction in the rate of spread in Australia. Only a 9% increase in cases, over 100 less new cases than yesterday and lowest number of new cases in 6 days. This has to be a massive bit of good news, the measures being put in place by the governments are clearly working. We are not heading towards a similar situation as Italy or USA or even the UK.

    Is it necessary though?

    Ardern 'devastated' by childbirth stories as first coronavirus death occurs
    March 29, 2020

    Wellington: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has admitted she was "devastated" to see new mothers go without support helpers during childbirth, but said the restrictions were a necessary part of her country's coronavirus lockdown. ...

    As part of the lockdown, hospitals are maintaining strict access rules on their wards, with mothers denied some support during childbirth, and afterwards. ...
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Hence President's Trump's statement that the cure should not be worse than the disease.
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”

Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Except that Trump didn't say that.

    Which would result in a lot more poorer people dying than richer people. Collateral damage it is called.
