    I’d say the risk is low. You can’t catch idiocy twice.
    I think it was New Zealand, personally.

    I was doing a bit of reading on this the other day. Nothing even close to Herd Immunity is going to happen without a vaccine. Here's a pretty good succinct article about it.

    Question: What do you get when you take someone who thinks they are smart, then add an asshole?
    Answer: A piece of shit who thinks they are smart!

    and that’s where you chime in mate, right on cue lol

    You should change your name from Utility Half to Utility Laugh because that’s all you’re good for, a big joke lol

    What I find really interesting is that I would be expected countries like India, China and Brazil to have massive numbers due to overcrowding and those overcrowded places having very little sanitisation standards.

    China you just can't trust the numbers but India have seemed to contain it well for their part.

    Yeah it's weird Vietnam apparently free of the virus , India going a lot better than expected but is that because it's a bit delayed.
    The only real pattern I see if you don't keep your distance and not stay away from people the virus will smash you.
    I'm more than happy to ride the next 90 to 100 days out without hitting crowded areas

    Hard to really say with India too. A few weeks ago they asked Indian officials about the low numbers and they said, "we just can't afford to test everyone". They went on to say that they had no idea about the death toll because many who die are not tested so not recorded.

    Worldonumbers are reporting nearly 125,000 cases but India Times is reporting over 1 million.

    Given the case numbers in Brazil, appears ~50% (332,382/735,224) of those tested are positive, this is EXTREMELY high and very concerning as they have only tested 3,462/1,000,000 ... as @south of heaven touched on, Brazil is far from at the peak, the torrent of fatalities is lagging the case numbers and will surge soon.
    No idea how Russia's fatality rate is so disparate compared to other countries.

    Met a real Karen today while I was getting some groceries. She was standing in the isle talking to who I assume was a friend having a whinge about the fact that quote "They open the pubs for the pissheads to go drinking but they won't open any beauty parlours, like getting pissed is a necessity. I need to get my hair, eyebrows and nails done"

    I couldn't help it but pipe up and correct her, from my safe distance that "the pubs are only open in the restaurant area, you have to be seated, no standing around or mingling as social distancing is still required. You can have a beverage or 2 while eatting then you have to move on, so no, no one is getting "pissed" and the pubs are not functioning 100%. Food is a necessity and as well as kick starting the economy back up again compared to getting your hair and nails done"

    Normally I wouldn't have said shit but her tone and attitude when she said what she said just irked me. Plus, just being melodramatic about not being able to go to the beauty parlour, when there are worse things to whinge or worry about at this time.

    Anyway, she just gave me the typical Karen look as I proceeded to continue on my merry way to finish my shopping and get home. No need to spend anymore time then necessary in the supermarket.

    Besides that group in Melbourne, at least we are not like America and making ourselves look like fools by protesting the lockdowns. She would so fit in with the fools.
