It's not the coughing that gets you.

It's the cancer of the scrotum:

I'm sure this thread will be much saner than the other Melbourne Covid-19 lock-down thread. Surely, three or 4 random morans won't lumber into this thread proclaiming Trump's lies and non-response more bigly than "Kangarooland".  Or spout ignorant "muh freedoms" talking points that Rupert Murdoch taught them to parrot. At least Australia HAS a national response, so they are WORLDS ahead of the stroked-out carrot.

COVID-19 never needs a reason, never needs a rhyme.

Be like Australia, they said. Australia knows how to deal with this, they said. Australia has it beaten, they said.

We nearly had it beaten and in true Australian style said "Eh, nearly's good enough, let's go to the pub."

I'm afraid the same thing is going to happen here in Scotland.

South Korea had it beaten to the point they hadn't had a single known case in days. They opened back up, and one asymptomatic carrier infected over a dozen people in a single night and it exploded again within a week.

New Zealand had it actually beaten, zero cases from may 23 till june 15... They still haven't had a single case of unknown origin since then, but they are now recording several cases a week. And they know that if the goddamn virus breaches their biosecurity cordon even once, the only response has to be immediate total lockdown.

It would be a huge victory (in a time when we could really use one) if Australia successfully pursues complete extermination of covid.

Victoria British Columbia has other worries, like the Yank boats turning off their transponders and running the border to 'vacation' here.  Coastal tribes are allegedly setting up armed watch posts to repel plague carriers since they have little or no health care infrastructure.

Very nice.

With a little bit of honey, the medicine goes down.

It also works to stick your foot up their asses.

Australia, Canada cases, new per million, linear scale

Fable of the Tortoise and the Hare. With Canada in the role of Tortoise and Our Beloved Sister Dominion in the role of the Hare.

For shiats and giggles, add the United States or the European Community or even Mama, the UK. Choose your metrics carefully and you can Bang! Zoom! To the Moon! America like Alice Kramden.

Still, inheriting the Earth wouldn't be so bad if it is still Inhabitable by then.

Victorian premier Dan Andrews tried to save a few dollars by hiring a private security company to mind the quarantined people in Melbourne, which resulted in them swapping sexual favours in return for fast food with one of them, and next thing you know most of the state's population is infected. Dumbest cost-cutting measure ever.

The rest of the country is doing much better. Except for three professional criminals who turned a shoplifting spree into a multi-state super-spreader event.

It's farkers, farkers who always have to go and ruin things for everyone else.
