Its fury is more than World war, Look, each day how many people are being passed away because of this virus. china was the origin of this virus, Now ir spreads to Iran and Italy, Span, UK, USa, Australia everywhere.

magdi says: I’m very worried.I still have a big question about young people. Are kids somehow more immune or are they just not at all getting sick? Are they transmitting the infection? But with regard to the high mortality rate in folks with underlying medical conditions, or who are over 60: Those numbers, I think, we need to believe. Reply

voldemar says: I have just returned from overseas as I had to cut my holiday short. I tried to activate Woolworths' priority service as I am both a senior and am in mandatory quarantine. I wanted to be able to purchase online. I have to wait 48 hours to have that service activated to be allowed to shop online. I phoned them and they would not make an exception. So we have no basics like bread and milk and fresh fruit or vegies for at least 48 hours. We can't leave the house for 14 days so we can't shop in person and have no local friends or relatives to buy for us. This is worse than being in gaol!
The economic effects of this are disastrous! The government is supporting small to medium businesses. However, there are many self funded retirees who are in dire need having lost a lot of their super and investments in the past few weeks including bank interest now at barely above zero who are now struggling to live on greatly reduced incomes.

So when I go shopping yesterday simply after some mince and the meat section is empty because of greedy hoarders it really infuriates me how people can care so little about others.

I can't cross borders and may have to go bush so does anyone have Bear Grylls number to help me get by?
Seriously people you started stupidly hoarding toilet paper and now it's going too far. Reply

godsbaby says: Ask yourself a question - Is this real? If so why is China back at work and other countries not? Only the sick or elderly are targeted but no one else, because if you really look into it, it seems to be a cold virus. More people died from the flu last year but we are being told a pile of bull by the media. We need to Stop watching tv and start using commonsense . Oh, we are told that you can get the vaccine to stop it - what vaccine? Reply

justal says: What worried me more than a week ago and now even more so, was how many people would be out of work when restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs, casinos etc were told to close their doors. How would these people be able to survive. Well today we know that the sheer number of people already out of a job here in Australia, and their need for Centrelink assistance, was, at the admission of the government, under estimated. The result was queues of people that waited 5 hours or more at Centrelink offices, because the MyGov website crashed for a second day making it impossible to make a claim on line. Also it was no good trying to phone the lines were jammed. What did the government think would happen, I’m not saying these measures should not have been taken, of course they should, but how did they think a system, which is normally horrendously slow and inefficient, would cope with an extra 200000 people trying to get assistance. Might sound simplistic, but how about giving a couple of hundred jobs to these newly unemployed, in the Centrelink call centres, so claims can be processed quickly. So the governments instruction to keep distance between you and anybody else, was impossible for those waiting in queues hundreds of meters long. This is only the first few days, imagine what it will be like in a few weeks. This is really frightening. Reply

margcafe says: Struggling to get my head around this virus it couldn't get any worse for Australia. Many people like us have lost out with the bushfire this year and it should have been a happy year for us, as my husband was meant to retire on Friday. Well he cant now and his health may suffer. The super has dropped so much we cant pay off a loan that is not bring a income in since December. Bills still need to be paid on that. Top it off my mother is in age care and it is in lock down in the country no vistiters. People should look after one and other. Reply

You could wear a mask all day, go out and touch a door handle, then come home, remove your mask and touch your mouth/nose without washing your hands first! Reply

bj says: I am hoping to stafe safe from the dreaded virus. What I really dont like is the way the people how have been 'forced' to stay in hotels for 14 days are behaving about it. The Gov or tax payer is footing the bill, they are safe, dry and fed and they complain. I have never been able to afford to go on a cruise, and would love to go on one, but if I was to turn into a disgruntled person if something went wrong I would not go. Some of these people set sail AFTER the virus warnings so the choice was theirs to travel. Reply
