Things just got ballistic. Given the weakness of the threat... Hope people are starting to wake up.


(But I bet the next Corona version will be highly dangerous, watch.)

Teeth falls under Cosmetics...
The SA Dental Association told dentists about a week ago to cancel all elective procedures. Yesterday they updated to say that there are still legal and paperwork challenges they need to work around before work can resume during the lockdown.

The Great Filter that keeps civilisations moving on from Tier Zero is probably a global pandemic that ends up setting the stage for them to wipe out the rest of the population.

The United Nations can already perform the role that Brown is suggesting, but its reach and powers would have to be temporarily expanded to do so.

The minibus taxi situation is really going to be tough to successfully organise in a country with no reliable government public transportation system. They are not exactly the same as Uber so how do they expect the poor to take themselves or children to doctors or get home again with so few operating?

A quiz that asks:

"Are you coughing?"
"Do you have body pain?"
"Do you have a headache?"
"Have you been overseas?"
"Have you been in contact with someone who has COVID19?"

And then tells you if you're low/medium/high risk and whether you should just relax or go to a doctor.

There is proper self test app that's coming out soon. Couldn't access that link though, not sure what it's about. The new app will take a few factors into account to give a probability of infection, as well as steps to take.
Webmd on steriods?

Using that app, you will have them virus plus 10 other diseases. And if you don't have it, the clever app will give you a 80% chance of contracting it. Either way, you will **** your pants and then make irrational decisions. Great

Sorry just to correct myself, it's aimed at healthcare workers rather than the public. Intended to be used by healthcare "starting when the patient first enters the hospital to resolution". Not for infections, my bad
