    Great to see some stuff in Melb opening up, but also feel so much trepidation around making any plans or getting too excited, all it'll take will be a couple of days in a row of double digit increases and we'll be locking down again.

    First test (from day before) actually came back in the 2nd and then they rushed test from this morning to get results which came back in the 8th.

    I get so rustled walking around seeing every third person not wearing their mask correctly, not hard.


    People basically just walk around with a coffee cup so they don't have to wear it, defeats the purpose altogether. Hopefully we can get to where other states are at in a few months time where we can ease off needing to wear them altogether.

    I honestly have no idea how anyone is choosing to stay in Melbourne while Andrews is still ruling with his iron fist.

    Melbourne is a cool city but that's entirely for social reasons, which you clearly can't do, and it's just not that good on most other measures. It's just so weird to be committed to a place in it's current state where you have to wear masks after being locked in jail for half a year as well as all the other restrictions.

    People are weird though I guess.

    Ah yes, why haven't I quit my job, upped my life and moved interstate, spent two weeks and $2,000 in hotel quarantine, and found a new job in a depressed market.... a life changing process for a whole 12 weeks of lockdown. No idea why I'm pushing through I must be pretty stupid.

    No joke, my missus cousins son did this exact same thing. He is 22 years old, training as a chef and was working in one of the pubs there on Collins Street (forget its name now but its Irish). Got the sack. He could have stayed around but realised he doesnt know how long it will take AND he realises when things open up much better people then him will be desperate for work AND he realises the wages on offer wont be great. He came over but he didnt have to pay 2k as govt signed off on self isolation in a house with police check ups etc. Quite simply the flow on effecvts will be much longer then 12 weeks for a ton of people and are probably a bit like Mel in that the fear of the unknown creates a complete inability to plan more then 1 day ahead for a very very long time.

    He is very happy with this decision. Got a job before he even left quarantine up north for 3 months during the peak season, Got to see Broome/Exmouth and co and now he came back and has a job here now for the foreseeable future. Financially he is much better off and quite simply he can head back to Melbourne in 12 month time if he so wishes and be in a better position then when he left

    Or Sweden

    They are the biggest success story in Europe for sure. Have about under 5 deaths every day and 500 odd cases a day and despite what people want to tell you, there people are happier, the economy is better and in general are in a better spot then others. There has been a fair bit of mistruths told about there plan. It wasnt herd immunuty on its own. It was isolating the vulnerable as a first and foremost step.

    Facts are in. Its worked better then UK/France/Germanys approach when its all said and done because the numbers dont lie

    Paris/London are all bigger populations than Sweden.

    Sweden has more deaths and cases than all the other Nordic countries put together and also had a worse GDP results than Norway/Denmark/Finland.

    What a success.

    Sweden had 1 death yesterday and France had 523. They are not 523 times bigger

    Its a marathon not a sprint also. The stats you are referencing GDP wise are actually from June. Since then the Sweden GDP outperformed the rest and for the month of September it was 2nd behind Germany as far as economic recovery goes in the region.

    Sweden made a core mistake early. The same mistake New York made at the same time in relation to letting it get into the nursing homes uncontrolled. Once they fixed that they havnt had any real issues and are clearly better off then Switzerland is right now for example.

    When we come to vaccine time, we can weigh it all up but its clear to say in terms of progress being made on October 29th 2020, Sweden are in a much better position then anyone else in Europe

    In all honesty UK is the most off chops I tend to feel long term. The "economic" stimulus is embarassingly short. They are pretty much broke as broke can be if we are to go by the govt actions and at the same time have the most worrying death roll and most uncontrollable spread. They are effectively coming in last place on all fronts

    I doubt anyone in the world as a complete situation ends up in a worse spot then them

    Quite a few stories doing the rounds being swept under the rugs from the inquiry about the kickbacks they were all getting for giving this contracted work out. Public Transport cleaning company was paying 3 different people a sum of 25,000 combined per week as some form of finders fee it seems

    Im in Sweden now. Won't lie it's weird af seeing no masks around. Although think they introduced more measures today in Stockholm because numbers are really starting to rise.

    In the cases per 100k 7 day average on Monday Sweden were low 60s. Today it's 116

    Will also note haven't seen one fat person in this country and gyms everywhere which would contribute to better culture and better health

    Does everyone in Sweden smoke btw like they do in France, Croatia, Greece and what not?

    I did laugh at this weird stat

    The highest testing country atm via tests conducted per 100,000 people is actually Belarus

    When China made all those testing kits, no one wanted, Belarus just said "we will have them" and essentially test eveyone all the time and manage to catch cases earlier then everyone else is. Any company that wants to test its staff can, just gotta ask the government for the testing kits, they send them to them, they send them back and get the results next day (small population)

    They also have one of the best health care systems in Europe ICU and equipment wise etc mainly because once again, they just took the free stuff China couldnt sell. They also have 11 beds per 1000 people. UK in comparison has 2.1 but that is absolutely bullshit figure though because they dont have staff to man the beds they have and can never get to 100% capacity. So they have 2.1 beds per 1000 but only staffing for 1.5ish and that is the actual max capacity. France is the same also. They tell people they have X beds but those beds cant actually be used because no staff can work them so they just sit as unused. Australia has the opposite issue weirdly enough. We have 4.2ish but we have surge capacity for 3x that due to the flexibility of the private sector

    Slovakia also preparing to test every citizen over the age of 10 for 6 weeks straight. Something Australia should have done in July in Victoria. Would have been achievable if they prepared for it properly in Victoria as opposed to the "we will be aight" attitude they had about testing capability

    To be fair I recall several APS wide positions seeking people to go door knocking to drop off testing kits across Melbourne.

    Pretty sure I posted about it here but can't be fucked going back to check.

    From my anecdotal evidence while people still smoke here, I'd say I've seen less here than in other countries.
