Yeah, I'd be expecting a spike any time now. Had rallies over here too that look like they may have spread it some.

Is China attacking your net infrastructure over there Dd? Hearing reports of sustained cyber attacks.

Probably. Happens in waves. Government isn't specifically naming China, except when off the record. There's a bit of an anti-China thing going on too, so making noise about it suits various factions in politics as well. I don't pay a ton of attention to who is cyberattacking who much because I fear the silent ones that don't get reported much more.

So we got a spike, but not from the rallies. Turns out the Victorian government hired cheap security guards for our quarantine hotels, who promptly decided to ignore all the rules and freely associated with the people under quarantine. Coupled with some bad luck in other ways and now getting 200 new cases a day, and Melbourne is back under full lockdown with the whole state's border closed from the rest of the country. Looks to be heading under control again, but not a great outcome.

Thankfully no outbreak up in Queensland where I am, with a total of 4 active cases known at the moment.

We got waves from the protests, but of course the media is spinning it as anything but.

Hi, I had the 'rona back in Feb before they really started testing for it (I tested later and have the antibodies) since I interact with upwards of a thousand people a day in my job :lol:

It was like a weird flu that took about 5 days to get over, but I still have a lingering cough.

Yeah, we had the first big surge in the country then the governor shut every thing down and murdered most small businesses, especially restaurants (and the bar I used to frequent) that didn't have takeout options in place.

I'm not sure what to think about lockdowns. They've worked over here - the country is basically COVID-free and businesses are now free to operate mostly as normal. However, there was a lot of continuous government support in the background to prop things up somewhat while the lockdowns were happening.

The conservative parties are getting absolutely hammered at the ballot box over here when they've suggested opening up over an elimination strategy, despite the Murdoch press pushing the idea pretty heavily.
