Great News!.

Waiting for the number of deaths, hopefully goes down again.

Number of cases staying under 500 is probably a best case scenario

Melbourne tested 30,000 in a day Tokyo less that so muuuum not a reality. 1 person gets the virus in Aust/ NZ it's big news 445 in Tokyo not so much. Nice handeling.

Number of daily cases is tiring. It means nothing without underlying data.

Hope it will look better in the not so far future.

But then again, who really knows.

note from science

With a possible 200% error margin, depending on the weather, the mood of workers counting the cases, the workload of the workers receiving the faxes, the unaccounted cases from private sector, the unaccounted cases yesterday, the cases submitted too late on Friday, the case we couldn't track bc Android app doesn't work and political PR needs.

easier solution, ignore people you disagree with. Regardless of what you repeatedly say, all the data here, and around the world, are pointing toward a downward trend in infections.

Serious question: when can we go drinking again and not have last call at 7:30?

And the heard gets larger and larger each day and this virus will burn itself out before the bureaucrats get 50,000 vaccinated.

@Stickman: No last call at my home.

herd, not heard. Sorry about that.

my thinking exactly

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Currently the problem is to have quick vaccinating and also sufficient genome sequencing , and if those much more severe variants are found, to as quickly as possible isolate them before further spreading. Otherwise those decreasing numbers of new infections that everyone is celebrating are completely worthless, because in the background a still hidden but very fast developing exponential growth of those variants is building up and will overrun everything within several weeks.
