    Exemption to Travel from Australia

    I think that poster was a troll, they only posted for 1 day

    When to go?

    The airport is definitely not closed, Qatar are still flying in. 14 days quarantine is required on arrival.

    Fall in migration due to Covid-19

    In my opinion it's very unlikely that we'll have a sudden increase in WA, we had had no new cases for 8 days until today and there are only 6 active cases in the State. With the State border still closed there's little chance of a new outbreak.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    Was it the same anti-malarial drug though? I've been taking hydroxychloroquine for about 5 years for an autoimmune disease, as long as you take it with food it's fairly well tolerated.

    Perth or Sydney?

    The newer areas are like that, yes but the older suburbs and hills areas are very different. I get tired of reading about Perth's boring suburbs but if people make the effort to look for something different it's out there.

    The "New Normal"

    That's not at all correct. Intubation and ventilation are a means of supporting respiration. The majority of patients undergoing a general anaesthetic are intubated and ventilated, and patients who've major surgery may require ventilation for a couple of days. It is prolonged Intubation and ventilation that causes muscle weakness etc along with the reason that ventilation and intensive care was required.

    Huon Valley, what's it like to live there ?

    It's a beautiful area, we're planning to retire there. We should have been flying there in 2 weeks time but of course we had to cancel We like the fact it's not too far from Hobart while having some lovely smaller towns.

    That was a very well written series - quite hard to watch at times

    Australia - be proud of yourselves

    We've been so lucky ali, the next time somebody makes derogatory remarks about Perth being so isolated I look forward to pointing out that's it's provided us with a huge advantage during this crisis.

    Day to Day Diary of Coronavirus/Covid-19 2020

    You're missing the point here plus there will not be 2 people supervising due to current restrictions. Exactly, out of the 10 mourners 6 will be women (1 is very elderly and 1 other disabled) and the deceased was not a small lady.

    It will be a graveside service and the coffin needs to be carried from the hearse to the grave.

    Day to Day Diary of Coronavirus/Covid-19 2020

    My husband's sister died suddenly last week. We found out today that out of the 10 mourners, 6 people need to be pall bearers as the funeral home are not allowed to use their staff . This is one thing that hadn't occurred to us
