    Good to hear your business should get through it mate. My business will get through it, but we will have a major shake up and lose a lot of money. I had an assistant manager look at me as I was coming down from my office and said ‘you look worried mate?’ I said ‘if you had a dozen families dependant on your decisions at the moment, as well as my own family, you’d be worried too you ****ing idiot’.

    This certainly didn’t help and explains why it is concentrated in Milan and surrounding areas.

    https://spectator.org/coronavirus-the-price-of-luxury/



    Once it took hold, the rate of spread was faster than the health system could cope, there are only so many high dependency and ICU beds available at any one time. The elderly ( which will always have preexisting illnesses anyways) and those with other serious illnesses will always have a higher mortality rate. The majority of these patients would not have ended up in ICU. Same thing will happen here, ICU beds will be reserved for those that have a better chance of survival. FYI in this country, it would be unusual for an elderly patient with multiple comorbidities to even be considered for an ICU bed

    Yes, I'm aware that he's flakey. However, the article is based on an Italian Govt report, which I checked.

    The situation in Italy is being used by the media to spread alarm at every opportunity, including grainy photos of army trucks in Bergamo (front page of The Australian) which we were told were there to collect bodies, without an ounce of corroborating evidence.

    Read the article and tell me where it's wrong.

    Attacking the author is a classic leftist tactic whenever the facts can't be argued.

    I suspect the list of co-diseases would not be dissimilar in Aussies of the same age group. The article also doesn’t account for the amount of triaging that was happening in emergency departments. No figures of how many of those patients were hospitalised, or even been in a medical facility near the time of infection. What it does reconfirm is that the biggest risk of Covid isn’t death figures, but the overwhelming of hospital systems (and the demise of medical staff).

    The word is "wanker". He says some interesting stuff, but opens himself to criticism by not being transparent about his qualifications. I think Mark Steyn is a fantastic orator, and breaks down leftie BS brilliantly - it makes no difference that he started out as a theatre critcic.

    True, but if he made it plain the extent of his qualifications, or lack thereof, they'd have nothing to attack him with.
