Many wards in NSW hospitals are empty awaiting the coronavirus explosion. Staff are being stood down. Expect more severe restrictions over Easter when they can be more easily tolerated because people will have planned to be off work and school. Presumably this is to try and wipe out the remaining virus in Oz but unlikely to completely eradicate it. We will continue to have severe restrictions sending many broke and reducing our ability to cope with future emergencies for few cases in Australia. Case numbers are charted below and as I predicted on March 22, we did not have enough cases in OZ to maintain exponential growth (with the restrictions) for more than another week. Note that the last day on the chart is a partial day so that day will probably get up to 200-250; the partial day caught me out last post and I went off a bit prematurely. If we do stop the restrictions though then it will go exponential. So government between a rock and a hard place. After an Easter crackdown, IMO, I would like to ssee an easing of restrictions to let the economy get going so we can afford to pay for emergencies. Just keep the borders closed and the place compartmentalised up to limit any outbreak. NRL should compartmentalise too - seperate into three or four subcomps that do not require plane travel, and test regularly.
