    Corona Virus

    Its the 2nd time you have mentioned this in recent days so i thought i'd reply......I'm not down playing this virus and i don't see many people doing so either. I think you need to be a bit careful comparing this with what happened in 1918-1920.....two completely different scenarios with two different viruses..... Scaremongering by making assumptions and trying to second guess what this might do is beneficial to no one.....the facts are this virus will mutate.....it is constantly mutating but in most cases the mutation has little affect on the virus and how aggressive it can or might be.....if anything it weakens the virus..... People are not being complacent.....social distancing and quarantine/social isolating seems to be working well and hopefully a vaccine will be available soon.....for now though everyone is struggling to deal with whats in front of them so speculating about what it might be is of no use at all..... The Spanish Flu was just a normal strain of influenza that hit at a bad time.....crowded hospitals.....poor hygiene.....a war.....and no quarantine due to the war effort all played its part in how it spread so easily and the death toll.....bacterial infections resulting from the virus killed millions but the mutation you speak of is not uncommon in Flu viruses hence why we have a new flu vaccine each year....that was 1920.....today is 2020......this Corona virus is a different type of virus and much more stable meaning its mutations are less extreme....I am trying to remain positive......

    I was laughing at the irony. Sorry that it went over your head. I cannot be bothered to try to explain it to you.
  8. I agree and the "must not arrive after" is not the initial entry date, it's the expiry date of the 100 visa. I would be applying for an RRV soon. If the OP wants to get in touch I can explain how this works.

    489 visa hgv work

    Hi, we have a 489 visa based on my skill as an icu nurse. My partner is an hgv driver but we can’t get an answer as to whether he will be breaking the 489 rules if he delivers to city areas if he is working for a regional company. Or vice versa, working for a city company but from a regional depot and delivering all over. does anyone have any experience with this?
  11. Can you share any relevant site or news where the govt has concluded this analysis? I tried google but didn't find anything. Just curious.

    Yes they love chasing the kangaroos. There is only one girl I will take out at dusk onwards because even with a roo in her sights she will come back to me if I shout. One of the girls can sniff out koalas and stands under the tree barking. The boy in the photo is terrible when we get a paddock away from home he runs back without me and one of the other girls follows him.

    China reopens live meat markets

    Wonderful. Now we can look forward to being ravaged by virulent plagues and global economic collapses every few years because of China's disgusting cultural hygienic practises. Fun times for all. Can't wait.

    Corona Virus

    No vaccine at present, all the major drugs firms working on one but testing for safety is long winded, up to 12 months and whichever gets it to market first will make Billions for its shareholders.

    Corona Virus

    So am I right in characterising your view of the way to deal with this pandemic is simply to take a Darwinian approach to it and simply to write off those who are not strong enough to survive and recover.? The herd will be better for losing those genetically predisposed to succumb to it and we will be better placed for our economy to thrive subsequently.? I believe that was Cummings approach ( our PM's closest adviser, a man described by Cameron as a 'career psychopath' ) and our present PM bought into it that psychopathic view, until he saw the daily death rate accelerate in Italy and he realised he would never be able to spin the death rate away and had to backtrack from it as he saw the black hole open up in front of him. Too late though, because they failed to plan to deal with it when it was in its earliest stages they have been playing catch up ever since, as is apparent with PPE, Testing and ventilators

    Corona Virus

    They are working hard on a vaccine here in Australia- pray that it is ready in weeks rather than months or years. Do the chinese already have an antidote? Maybe that is why they are re-opening their cities. Whatever, I am certain there will be no sharing there.

    https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/mar/09/british-steel-bought-by-china-jingye-saving-more-than-3000-jobs Our govt sold our last national steel industry just last month, it specialises in steel rail production, China will clean up big on HS2 now rather than the govt nationalising it as Labour proposed, but then ideology gets in the way of doing the right thing all the time as I think we are seeing in the present fiasco, both here and in Australia/USA.
