This is absolute lunacy. The Olympic games are simply not important. The IOC folk must be living under some very large rocks.

From a few conversations, annecdotally, I see some I know who are keen as for proper precautions. weekly Family meal tonight is the last for a while and other distancing. Great. But also a number who are casual, not bothered, it'll be fine. Makes me feel that probably 1/4 of us will not bother much. Maybe more. If it was just 10% then we will join EU down the track. Or maybe a lot of us will joiu the EU, and a lot of us will hunker inside our fenceline if we can and avoid it. I just feel the buy in here is not that great. Even a 95% buy i n here would cause a blow out, just take longer

 

 

Blowing through as much work as I can now so I can spend the next few days doing some resilience/WFH systems prep for work. Matter of when, not if as far as I'm concerned now.

But remember that to produce all that food we need imported stuff... fuel, tractors, fertilizer, etc, etc. And we need labour... someone's got to milk the cows. Already the kiwifruit growers are complaining about not enough labour (although that seems to be an annual thing, and the growers I assume aren't willing to increase wages above minimum wage to attract more workers).

 

 

 

 

Kiwifruit pickers get about $0.04 per kg. They've been squeezed until only the physically toughest and most desperate people are prepared to do it (mostly migrant workers / pacific island seasonal workers). They could add another $0.04 to each kg of kiwifruit they sell and double wages for pickers.

Nice. No matter how I look at it, no matter what the Govt does, too many citizens will ruin it. If everybody played ball,the virus would have literally nowhere to go, and once an infected person self cured, that one example is extinct. Found one person, made them crook, now its gone forever without getting to another. Thats the theory which is 100% accurate, but falls over when people dont play the game

A question though - I read "Prime Minister Scott Morrison banning non-essential indoor gatherings of more than 100 people."

 

What would be the implication for a workplace with 200 people spread over three floors?

The Washington Post - Mapping the spread of the coronavirus in the U.S.

 

March 18

 

The number of reported cases of covid-19 continues to rise in the United States, where testing was slow to begin. 

 

The disease, caused by a new coronavirus, has been confirmed in every state.

@freitasm

 

from the expert in AU he said it's to make it easier to trace contacts if there was an infection. basically the smaller the group the easier to track contacts.

 

i'd say at your work, you'd want to keep the floors separate so that if someone tested positive later, s/he can say i didn't have close contact with the rest.

 

Singapore is doing one step further, everybody is sat down 1.5m or more away from everyone, whatever the place.

That could be managed by rolling work from home where staff select a day per week on which they will work from home. This will reduce the numbers in the office on any given day and aid in separation while maintaining some form of productivity.

Ditto. Think I'll pull the plug on taking my kids to see my parents after tomorrow's visit.

 

 

 

It's hard to say no when there's no official instruction to do so. We're all prepared to make sacrifices in the fight against this, but so far we haven't been told to cut out social visits.

all eyes are on Italy and China

 

Italy because from the day that shutdown was imposed on uncontrolled spread we are waiting to see the peak and then the fall. they hope it is measured in weeks.

 

China to see if you actually get herd immunity or not.

How Dangerous is COVID-19?

SciShow

You may have heard several different projections about the fatality rate of COVID-19. How do different health organizations come up with these figures, and why do the numbers seem so fluid?

In the interim however if the government ups the restrictions which is a certainty then its work from home or no work at all. Flexible companies may survive but many will not.
