Coronavirus Australia: Melbourne under strict lockdown as cases surge...
 
In Australia, a state of disaster has been declared in the state of Victoria after a surge of coronavirus infections. A range of new stricter lockdown measures have been imposed, including a nighttime curfew for the capital Melbourne. Melbourne has been in COVID-19 turmoil since being hit with a second wave in June. An initial lockdown failed to bring numbers down, forcing authorities to further tighten restrictions. Now, residents will only be allowed to leave home for work, medical care, or to shop for essentials. Outdoor recreation is also limited to one hour a day.

Australia's not joking around. Their death rate is 8 per million (208 total). As opposed to the U.S. (477 / 150K+).

As someone who works in health care, and someone who has a vulnerable child and vulnerable parents, the mishandling of the pandemic is extremely disappointing.

I live in a part of Canada that's doing relatively well... For now. Autumn and winter will not be kind to us.

To bring this back to DG: I'm the weirdo that wears a mask outside when playing in a group. If I've got it, you don't want it. And I won't know if I'm sick until it's too late.

Kids today have more time to spread Covid, because they don't have to walk to and from school uphill both ways, like we did.

The answer is still no

Not to muddle the point, but those numbers aren't true.

Or, at least, I can't find any such numbers for Spain or France.

Well, MSNBC is the station that had a graph showing $350mil divided by 350mil people means everyone gets $1mil. So they have a track record of bad math.

For yesterday's numbers, Worldometer has:

Spain: 3,044
France: 556
Canada: 147
US: 48,622

It was an image of a tweet, not a graph, and Brian Williams corrected it in real time, but yes.
