    I wouldn't want him to be too sick. Enough to force him to retire from politics would do.

    Welcome. However I wonder if they are even able to rectify the damage done with their earlier non-inclusion and produce backdated figures to show the growth in confirmed cases previously.

    Some people who stockpiled toilet rolls attempted to return them to Woolworths but Woolworths told them where to shove it.

    Not real good for Turkey. From nothing to thousands of cases in a week or two.

    If you think Covid-19 is giving people a hard time, pity the pigs. African swine fever has killed 800 million.

    So the last three days has seen about 7% increase in numbers in Australia, hopefully we can stay at this level or better.

    Some of the 7% is Australians returning from overseas. If it gets down to 5% (Singapore's level) then real progress has been made.

    The real number of infected people is much higher than confirmed cases, something our govt has not communicated effectively if at all.
    Researchers are estimating in Indonesia there may be between 70,000 and 250,000 people with it, despite only 500 known cases.

    ...pursuant to previous warning re conspiracy theories and fake news. The views of Francis Boyle regarding supposed escaped bioweapons are without foundation. Boyle has no relevant expertise and misinterpreted claims re "gain of function" as implying that the virus was manipulated by humans when in fact there was no such implication intended (gain of function can occur naturally through mutation) and this was the subject of a subsequent clarification.

    Anyone wishing to discuss the deletion of the post may do so in the Help and Feedback section only; any post asserting merit in Boyle's view will be deleted.

    I would like to share this.

    https://www.worldometers.info/corona...-rate/#correct

    Dividing cases by deaths gives nonsense figures until all cases in a sample are resolved (the current method).

    A better estimate is given by deaths/(deaths+recovered).

    By this method Australia is doing very well and some countries UK, USA are doing very badly.

    This is also a useful link on why the claims that the virus was man-made are groundless: https://www.sciencenews.org/article/...nalysis-nature
