    I've been pondering this very question. It seems that the pandemic will reach out to all in society and on your figures it will be like a particularly deadly flu season - one where complacency is one of the major killers.

    Re-infection appears to be particularly deadly and immunity doesn't spread with the disease.

    So In answer to your question I'm in the susceptible group so Ill likely get to hospital, much as I'd prefer not.

    But that said, we're working on in house protocols and supplies to quarantine at home. Best to avoid plague centres if possible.

    I remember tales from my parents of polio epidemics in Melbourne and I'm imagining something similar.

    I started laying in good food supplies today and I'll continue preparing until it's background noise here in Oz. Luckily being a paranoid island our authorities are getting well prepared.

    Im from Korean Background and been speaking with relatives in Seoul, the consenous is to avoid people if one can.

    Also sick people in non "locked down" areas are told not to go to hospital but to ring a number and people turn up in hazmat suits to test..... But once that happens that "family" or everyone in the Aparment block becomes persona non grata even if negative in the local area, out of fear

    The media coverage is at saturation levels, sporting games and events are cancelled.

    More and more people are not eating out and staying at home. And if anyone coughs, its like a gun going off and people rushing away

    I don't think people here in Melbourne realise how devastating this could be. I had cafe breakfast this morning and I thought if this pandemic was raging there'd not be a full cafe anywhere and that's 4 people plus owner out of work at my local, let alone all the others.

    All eyes on South East Asia whether 30C heat and high UV can stop the virus. We'll know in 1-2 weeks. If the heat and UV can't slow down the virus, the end game is here.

    doubt 30c would do anything as that is lower than human temperature.

    Sunlight is pretty powerful uv, I wouldn’t want to be near an artificial UV emitting device if it is designed to kill at anything more the 2cm away.

    I think it has more to do with how contagious the virus will be on non-living hard surfaces and inside water vapour/droplets at over 30C. The virus may still survive at temperatures below 60C, but the ability to infect and multiply maybe compromised at higher temperatures, thereby reducing the R0.

    Similarly, when the weather is hot, flus are seldom serious - in fact, I've never known anyone below the age of 70 admitted into hospital for flu in Singapore, let alone die of one.

    Note: Of course, I'm assuming that SARS-2 has similarities to Flu with respect to temperature tolerance outside of the body.

    Retail is already doing poorly I still can't understand how some cafes stay open. If the virus hits I think you will start to see a lot of retail and restaurants close up shop.

    I suspect if things got that bad here the Federal Gov would set up hotlines and mega tents and isolation like we see everywhere else.

    Always seek medical advice is my opinion.

    Being in Australia we have the best protection that nature can buy being the beautiful ocean that surrounds us plus boats/ships travel very slow and the airports are choke points for testing - so be glad that you live here or are here I say.

    But the virus proper is not the only thing,this is the - Coranavirus Global Meltdown Thread - which is starting to bite us in the pocket although the patrol price is as low as I can remember - so as always where there is losers sadly there will always be winners just less of them.

    Chief Economic Advisor at Allianz stated that there are three economics uncertainties and they have converged so we should not buy the dip....

    1. Short term uncertainty,
    2. Medium uncertainty,
    3. Long term uncertainty.

    I don't get what's the big deal over toliet paper. Get a high pressure shower head and squirt your bum crack after a poop. :cool:
