Got this from my member of parliament today. I imagine it is a fairly standard given out by all members of the government

Dear Baghdad Bob,

The Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has caused alarm among some residents in my electorate of Higgins and I would like to take this opportunity to ensure the most up to date information is available to you.  
 
A coronavirus is a type of virus that most commonly infects animals and sometimes also infects humans. Some viruses transmit easily from person to person, while others do not. There are many different strains of coronavirus.

Currently, Australia has not seen a significant number of confirmed cases compared to other parts of the world.

Australia has well established processes in place for screening ill travellers arriving at our international air and seaports but has implemented additional measures.

Hospitals and general practices have also been provided with information regarding a possible outbreak.

In the last week, I have visited the Alfred Hospital, the closet public hospital to Higgins; and Cabrini Health, the only  emergency department in Higgins. I received an update on their preparedness for a coronavirus outbreak and I am very impressed by their readiness to help Victorians. 

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade have raised the level of travel advice for China to 'level 3 - reconsider your need to travel'.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, have also updated health traveller advice on Smartraveller to level 4 –  do not travel to all of Hubei Province.

The Department of Health is closely monitoring this situation in collaboration with the World Health Organization and the States and Territories to ensure the health care system is well prepared to respond to cases detected in Australia to minimise the risk of further disease transmission.

The Australian Government has provided some useful resources which may be helpful to you or your family and I encourage you to familiarise yourself with the symptoms of coronavirus. 

As always if there is something you think my office or I can help with please get in touch. 


Katie Allen MP 
Federal member for Higgins

Byron Mum Worried This Coronavirus Might Result In Another Deadly Vaccine

WENDELL HUSSEY | Cadet 

Byron mother and online retailer of bespoke Balinese goods Andrea Vachser has today taken to a few online Facebook groups to voice her concerns about big pharma today.

This comes after news broke this morning that Australian scientists have achieved a major breakthrough in the fight against the Coronavirus by manufacturing the virus in a lab – which is a huge step towards developing a vaccine.

However, that global breakthrough has not been received well in the Northern Rivers of NSW or the Northern Shivers as it is also known.

“Here we go again, #notmychild #not my baby,” said the wife of a fringe NRL player for the Gold Coast Titans.

“People are so concerned about the Coronavirus that they are willing to risk their lives letting the government and big pharma develop another deadly vaccine,” she said whilst sipping her cold-pressed arrowroot, carrot and turmeric juice.

“I refuse, they can bully us all they want, but I will not let my children be subjected to governments sanctioned programs like lab rats in a cage.”

The angry mother of Aldous and Petunia then told us that she just can’t believe how the people of this country just roll over and submit.

“5-G, chemtrails, fluoride in the water, the light rail burning and now this latest vaccine, when will people wake up.”

So tell us Whale, if someone provides an opinion, a thought, a theory, then changes their mind on the matter/subject, is that a bad thing or good thing?

Redemption, you do realize who issued the above?The Betoota Advocate for goodness sake, and they're simply taking the p1ss to ease some understandable tensions.

For something authoritative, try the Chief Scientist and similar.

Not just food Doc. Maybe you should advise the guys to expend the circumference of the circle and use disinfectant wipes regularly.


How does the virus spread and how long does it stay on surfaces? : The virus can now spread from human-to-human, but only with close contact. It can remain on surfaces for a few hours.

So you have already adopted those protocols then PT ... very wise.Clap

heres what I think Whale,

It was a deadly virus for 2 weeks, now its a pathetic weak bug.
Humans beat it off.

The whole thing is now hype.
It started serious, but its not anymore.

People arent dying from it.
Very short lived virus.

Would rather focus on heart disease. It kills half the planet. Ban junk food not flights.  :)

Between an actual crisis of their own making, the bushfires and a fake crisis of their own making, Coronavirus, they will be arguing their is now an out for them with their fake budget surplus.

Also a deflection from their bushfire and hopeless leadership woes.

the main deaths from the coronavirus have been elderly, or so China reports. Of course, the real statistics are yet to be revealed. 

 I asked a chemist, the other day, for a P2 mask, since I've just come out of hospital after a serious operation and am very vulnerable to infection. He pooh-poohed the seriousness of the situation and told me everyone was panicking unnecessarily. That's fine for him to say...perhaps it is over-hyped...but I asked for the mask now because it's going to be more difficult to obtain them if it spreads. I'm not an alarmist, but I can't afford to even get a cold, with my present condition (a sliced neck and freshly-fused vertebrae). He gave me a simple mask for free, but I'm cranky that someone like him can make decisions on others' health issues.
