Today I was supposed to be offline 😖
Sorry got a bit political.
covid-19, LNP 🙃
'Michelle Landry, the LNP member for Capricornia in far north Queensland, and Queensland senator Matt Canavan have written to Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to request her “urgent consideration for shutting north Queensland’s borders”.
It is worth noting that as it is not an independent jurisdiction, north Queensland does not have borders. '
What an utter farce. So much for “protecting Australia’s borders” 🙄
covid-19, public service
"On Tuesday evening the Australian Public Service Commission (APSC) told the ABC it would not allow departments or agencies to respond for themselves, and instead provided a statement that avoided answering questions put by ABC News"
This data is out and yet the APS is still insisting that staff should turn up to the office. Madness. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-25/coronavirus-covid-19-modelling-stay-home-chart/12084144
On Covid-19 and rushing therapeutics to the clinic
There's a reason why we have all the ethical hoops to jump through before new or re-purposed treatments get to the clinic
If you skip a step for expediency, you might not know that your treatment also causes birth defects or has adverse effects in certain minority groups
So it all comes down to which groups' welfare we prioritize in times of emergency
