why do we need 84 million doses of the vaccine when the population of Australia is only 25 million... :unsure:
(right here pinkeye I'm criticizing ScoMo and the governments actions) I hope the agreements are conditional that it actually works...
what's even worse Is we don't know how much C-19 mutates... yes a vaccine might be good for a life-time or it might only be good for a season like the Flu shot...Really sounds dumb....

Researchers in Costa Rica are due to begin trials of an inexpensive coronavirus treatment based on antibodies taken from horses injected with the virus that causes Covid-19. Developed by University of Costa Rica’s Clodomiro Picado Institute (ICP), the equine antibodies medication is to be tested on 26 patients from mid-September, Roman Macaya, president of the Social Security Fund that manages public health centres.

If it works we finnaly can find a use for retired race horses.....

your right just shooting them or taking them to glue factories is much better... It's a barbaric gambling industry that needs to be stopped......
For every one "successful" horse there are thousands that just get thrown away like rubbish... shame

Yes ... it is .
No disagreement here.
I could not believe that expose on the ABC about the QLD Abbatoir.. and nor could many less cynical people actually IN the industry.
That was the worst thing I've ever seen. Worse than seeing jihadists behead or shoot prisoners, worse than anything humans can do to other humans...
..except perhaps for human traffickers and child-killers...

As long as greed reigns HUMANS will act without compunction, to use and abuse anything they choose to.

Horses are so much a part of our history...

France records nearly 10,000 new infections

France recorded almost 10,000 new Covid-19 infections on Thursday, its highest ever total in a single day, Reuters reports.

The country reported 9,843 new confirmed cases, an increase of almost 900 on the previous day, when 8,975 infections were announced.

I wish the PM Scott Morrison, and other bullies in his mob would stop harassing AP.. my State Premier ( i refuse to spell her name.. ) .

Must have had some pull, that family member from Canberra.

People pass on when it is their time, and I am sad for that lady but it constitutes circumstances beyond the control of mortals.

At least she got to see him.

I think Anastascia should remain strong.

Otherwise given every one seems to want to come here, we'd be in the same position as Vic has been.

Stay strong AP.

Dan Andrews and Mrs P. are getting abused by some in OzPol and in the Merde=och press. Yet infections in Vic are rocketing down and Qld seems Ok too!

The murdoch media has developed a hard on for Dan and now with an upcoming Qld election, they're turning their attention to Palaszczuk

With Autumn starting it looks like Europe is about to be hit with a second wave.

The UK is reporting a doubling in the number of coronavirus infections every week as the Netherlands, Spain, France and Italy all report increased daily numbers.

What I find mystifying, is some advice I've heard from CMO 's.. that say on the one hand

.. you are infectious BEFORE you exhibit/experience symptoms.......

BUT........

go on to say ...

Only get tested if you have had contact with other identified infectious.. OR
You have SYMPTOMS. !!

WTF.?

We need many more tests, and all the pop should get tested, if willing.

Seems counter-productive .. you ARE infectious, but you don't know it, BUT don't get tested till YOU are sick.?

Does that make sense to anyone .?

As for that tracing app.. Who would bother to download that crap.? They can only manage to give us a sub substandard NBN.... nothing they touch gets better...

you can bet fibre to the home would have been a thousand times better than the mixed technology crap the libs have rolled out. As soon as it rains my internet starts playing up, and it doesn't appear to be any faster than my ADSL was prior to the NBN

There are still 238 Victorians in hospital, including 22 in intensive care.

Tuesday’s tally of 55 new cases came off a worrying low of 8704 tests.

Mr Andrews has again urged Victorians to get tested if they have even mild respiratory symptoms.

“That is less tests than we would like,” he said.

“Because cold and flu [infections are] so low, if you even have mild symptoms, the chances of you having this coronavirus are that much higher.”

I had a weird, harsh cough one morning—got tested for COVID19 (negative)

In Melbourne a lot of people refused testing.

Lived there, off and on, NOW I live HERE.. Yep the Vics are different to Qlders..
I'll attest to that.

How different..? Not much really.. just nobody down there, when I lived there, went around rah rah rahhing Victoria all the time. None of this media grooming. Well that was a while ago.
