From my trip to the shops today, once again it is young "people" who seem to think they do not have to wear masks. Absolute f~ckers. (Obviously, the plural of anecdote is not data, and also I do not appear to live anywhere near elderly forgetful folk like loz, Maz or Gonzo.)

Andrés Manuel López Obrador made the apparently sarcastic pledge on Friday, as Mexico became the country with the third-highest coronavirus death toll in the world.

“You know when I’m going to put on a mask? When there is no corruption. Then I’ll put on a mask and I’ll stop talking,” Obrador told reporters.

Corruption has long cast a shadow over Mexico’s political system. Transparency International's most recent corruption index lists Mexico at 130th in the world, with a score of 29 out of 100.

Obrador, who has appeared sceptical of face masks, has been criticised for his response to the Mexico’s coronavirus epidemic.

Critics say Obrador’s government was slow to impose lockdown measures and has lifted them too quickly.
Anyone might think there's an unannounced competition going on to lay claim to the most incompetent, corrupt nutjob of a leader in the world. Where the f*cking f**k have all the serious, capable politicians gone?

I thought he might have been Mexico's Mujica, but I wasn't paying attention.

Just another populist.

I think you are confusing him with Lord Kitchener or Neville Chamberlain perhaps ?

Boris said something along the lines of

"Something approaching normal by Christmas"

I would sincerely hope for all our sakes that is the case !

Stage 4 lockdown aka NZ type lockdown looms for Victoria. Victoria has failed to stop the spread. One major factor has been 1 in 4 people that had proved positive for Corona Virus has not been home when checked upon by Police or the army, which is unbelievable. The other factor and my personal theory, is the amount of probable asymptomatic people running around and maybe a sizeable percentage on top of that that feel their slight symptoms aren't worth getting checked as they don't have fever or headaches etc.

I'm expecting that by the time Victoria gets cleared of this, the other states will be into full blown outbreaks. Hence the lockdown/quarantine/spread cycle will go on and on.

Very serious for Australia if Victoria goes into full lockdown, as at least 25pct of freight and manufacturing comes from here. Only 24 hour flight freight terminal on the Eastern Seaboard on top of that.

So shortages across the board for Australia are likely.

The BBS used to be good for that, but these days I often read about startling news in the UK from other sources before someone mentions it on the BBS.
I am not so sure about that, I heard on the BBS of an english teacher being sacked in far off Santiago way before even local media outlets picked it up.

Curfew implemented in Melbourne and surrounds, between 8PM and 5AM no one is allowed out, except for care giving or work.


Food shops to remain open. Most industries to shut down. All schools to shut.

Only 1 person allowed out from a household for exercise.

Gone pretty extreme here.

That’s what NZ lockdown was like. Not sure with community transmission though if theres much chance of containing it now in Victoria. Be interesting to see what happens to the rest of Australia.

The reason Melbourne has had an official state of disaster declared for the first time in History is they have at least 700 cases of spread, where they can find no cause for the infection.
