Managed to watch episode 10, end of series, and it was enjoyable.

Then it was also highly predictable, I mean, they tell you what is going to happen a long time before they do it. I heard some bits put forward a couple of weeks ago.

The one disappointment was the alien machines that looked more like a bunch of mechanical worms. Then we have seen them previously. Could have been so much better.

US now leads world in coronavirus cases. Although it's leading something I doubt if any other country wants.

Still behind with only 1,300 fatalities but they are probably going to be catching up fast. Probably the only reason that more have not died is they tend to die several years earlier than in Italy on average.

Trump is still lying about the situation too.

https://www.wired.co.uk/article/south-korea-coronavirus pretty much what I was talking about before.

Quote
“South Korea is one of the most wired countries in the world, where everybody uses cell phones for just about everything, and [the government] was able to use our cell phones to not only track but send warnings, like ‘watch out, there's a Covid-19 patient in your vicinity.’”

Coughing near police officers and claiming you are infected is a crime.

The USA seems to be handling a lot of this by state in an ad-hoc method, so while some are being very responsible others are still doing way too little.

Then others are being idiots, tinfoil hat loons or simply giving advice that is dangerous. One advised that people use a hairdryer to heat their noses to kill the virus.

Of course, Fox news' Sean Hannity got in on the act on multiple occasions and the snake oil sellers are trying to make a few fast bucks from useless or even dangerous "cures"

And I am not kidding about the hairdryer.

I'm not too worried if production is delayed or delivery postponed, gives them more opportunity to polish it up I guess? As long as I get it eventually.

Not all the world though. Asia generally has handled this the correct way, with proper policing of quarantine and isolation, surveillance, monitoring, etc. South Korea especially has handled this fantastically, even tracking and hunting down the liars that say they are clean or not going out spreading it. Nothing draconian, just keeping track from day 1 and ensuring it is not allowed to run riot.

The self-absorbed western world full of hubris could learn a lot from the humility the Asian countries show when an epidemic appears. They learned hard and fast from SARS/MERS.

The main thing is that the people themselves abide and realise they must.

I seen:


- People posting pics on instagram in local area having breakfast from places that should only be serving take away.
- Social media influences's still trying to promote the stuff they need to promote, going to beaches and outside etc (Especially in the states) doing photo shoots when they should be staying at home.
- A gym open and also posting on instagram they had people working out yesterday morning locally.
- People using the no work/work from home to have parties and people over in the week. Someone I kind of know and follow each other on instagram posted a picture of like 30 people at someones house the other day drinking!


The reason the spread is happening despite the fact it is 2020 are:


1. The governments Just not set to handle this stuff AGAIN and not learned lessons from SARS or Swine Flu.
2. The governments of the world have been too concerned with the finances rather then lives/curbing the issue.
3. People are idiots, to many idiots out there - You can not trust people to do the right thing.

If you folks think UK was confusing (and now in your full lockdown) Australia is just a mess.

It's the same everywhere, because in essence regardless of place of birth, race or religion, everyone are self-serving idiots.

I resent that, *NEARLY EVERYONE*.

Last time I was out was Friday collecting medication from chemist.
