COVID is a Powderpuff. 

The narrative will be dead after the US election. About two weeks later its will be flushed down the memory hole.

And NSW has the Gold standard as to open up safely by the look of it, 

We remain sealed up.....

I was wrong the election was further off. November 3rd. 

This boogie man will be pushed very had in the media. I assume it will be absolutely hammered all the way up to the culmination on election day.  There will be a ton of emotive stuff .

I wish the general public weren't so stupid and could see through this bull$hit


0.3% fatalities

For it to be over by the election "the curve needs to be flatten".  Remember that phrase from the beginning of the outbreak?

The western world has flattened the curve, ok, so not ---------,  but l  -  it's still flat.

Did you just change the thread title?  Because 30 days from the first post is 15th October, not the date of the election.


From a European perspective it is confusing why you tie the unfolding of a pandemic to the USA political time table.  Or was your concern (as you mentioned "narrative") more about how the papers report things rather than the actual progression of the pandemic?

Seems to me some on this forum would rather it be what it isn't. And what it isn't, is a particularly deadly virus.

No, it isn't particularily deadly, AI.  But it is more than deadly enough and extremely contagious.  Almost 210 thousand American citizens are proof of that.  

Much more worrying is the fact that this new bug is a coronavirus.  Coronaviridae share certain characteristics.  They are airborne, highly contagious and change their spike proteins often.  As a result, becoming endemic, developing a more deadly strain and learning to defeat both vaccines and treatments are all possible.  There is a host of good reasons why the WHO keep trying to encourage suppression.  There may also be hidden leftovers from having the disease that we do not yet know about.  This happens with emerging disease.  We do know that even younger sufferers are vulnerable to resultant heart disease.  We do not yet know (and will not know possibly for years) how long that will last, or even if it is permanent.  Only a handful of people on the entire planet can get the sort of treatments Trump just accessed.

Locking down only the vulnerable is an option.  But not a good one.  For them it is often a death sentence.  An old friend of my husband and I died just last week, not from covid, but because of it.  Being locked down and vulnerable, she died of another condition, when her treatments were put on hold.  Other friends have had cancer treatments suspended, as the risks of chemotherapy's immune suppression outweigh the benefits during this pandemic.  You could say (logically and correctly) that they are terminal anyway - but not to my face!  They could have had decades, now it is merely years and in one case just months.  Everyone on Earth is terminally ill.  We are all mortal.  But those intervening years matter.  One of those vulnerable people I count as friends is a teenager, another a fireman.  

All have families. 

All matter. 

ALL!



I really wish this were less deadly.  I wish it were less contagious too.  I wish it were not a type of coronavirus.  I wish selfish covidiots would stop downplaying it because they think their freedom to prove themselves selfish (no mask), knowlegable (cherry picked information) or politically astute (£$&*$£!!!) outweighs other people's right to life and health.  

Covidiots is what I am allowed to call them.  Not the words I want to use.

Technophobe, 

What you wrote was so incredibly powerful. I could not agree more.

I am so sorry for the situation your friends find themselves in; how heartbreaking.

Interesting that you have been in favor of lockdowns previously, yet now you say they are not a good option. Yes they are not a good option for the entire population given the extremely low IFR of Covid among the lower age groups. Lockdowns should only include those most vulnerable of the population. When the cure is more harmful than the condition it's simply not logical to pursue a cure that is. I'll wager that future studies and information will show the effects of lockdowns to be more detrimental than the virus is long term, as a result of delayed health care or treatments, suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, stress, domestic violence, as well as just plain violence. You think the rise in homicides in the major cities isn't tied directly to the lockdowns? In a population of 320 plus million the ripple effects of the lockdows has yet to be fully realized or quantified.

 Granted the information that drove the lockdowns has changed as more information has become known. And with that changed information our attitudes and the way we approach the virus must change as well and realize it for what it actually is and isn't.  People can't live in the March 2020 COVID induced world of fear forever. Reality is knocking and the world goes on.

Thank you, Beachmama.  It was nice to be both read and understood.  I was starting to think I was writing gibberish.

Not long now and we can get on with our lives..

Everything is starting to come out.

Not long now.....until we find that Cobber misspelled adding a "D" to POWER-PUFF.  This virus seems to have lot of "Puff" left.


Granted this is not the "slate-wiper" although that may happen if the medical facilities are overwhelmed (I heard on this morning's radio news that Belgium has announced that all its ICU are full), and civil order breaks down.

Quite frankly, I am getting fed up with the politicians, everywhere. Not much to say about the so called medical scientists either.

They are either trying their best to look optimistic, about the efforts being made by the populations to get on top of this virus, OR, they are terrified at the prospect of, as a politician said, "An Inconvenient Truth".

There are far too many instances of significant numbers of people, from far too many countries, ignoring the rules in place altogether, or merely abiding by the rules that suit them. That completely undermines any optimism that any politician can have. And mine as well!!!

There are apparently, up to eleven potential vaccines, undergoing stage three trials. Quite honestly, I won't hold my breath. The medical bunch seem to think, that a 50% efficacy would be a result. Oh no it wouldn't. Two or three jabs a year, that still leaves us with a one in two chance of catching it, is not a vaccine. It would also be mightily expensive to bring into being, assuming it could ever be done, with the regular incompetence shown day in, day out, by so many governments.

This leaves us with the inconvenient truth.............This virus is here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future. Let's say, about fifty to one hundred years.

One scientist suggests there could be as many as 20,000 variants of Covid-19, and many more still to emerge.

I personally went into 'Lockdown' on February 5 2020. My only 'adventures' out, have been to work, or to shop, and nothing else. I am still in 'Lockdown' and I plan on staying there. 

The television is rubbish, and I'm fed up with the constant repeats. The radio isn't any better. But I am safe where I am, in my four walls.

At least I think I am.
