    • I don't foresee any problems with the restoration of how things were before in the long run.  The problem will be how to ease them off in the mid term but not fire up the infection rate again.   Most of the restrictions have required state action to enforce and in some cases to change state Acts so it may take a while to sort it all out.
    • With such uncertainty, Western Sydney Wanderers' chairman Paul Lederer defended the decision to stand down entire squads. "Look, our number one priority is to save the clubs. That's our number one priority. These are unprecedented times, we need to have a reality check. None of us have lived through times like this," Lederer said. "The clubs are doing their best to survive, that's all I can tell you." Lederer said it would be "un-Australian" to seek to gain an advantage from the COVID-19 outbreak and hopes Fox Sports will stick to its contract. "We have an agreement, we have a contract with Fox, I firmly believe they should honour that contract because there is no reason not to, none whatsoever," he said. https://www.smh.com.au/sport/soccer/fifa-laws-allowing-free-agency-won-t-apply-to-unpaid-a-league-players-20200402-p54ghw.html
    • I've been looking at the same site as well. A stat not mentioned in the news coverage is the cases per 1m of population. Seeing high numbers for some countries not usually mentioned has me wondering how their medical services will cope. Switzerland is an example. They have been consistently above Italy and Spain until Spain's situation escalated even more in the past couple of days. There is also a few small countries with much smaller case numbers but even higher ratios per 1m of double or triple Switzerland's that must be under stress. Another stat that is getting progressively worse is the death rate compared to resolved cases (dead or recovered). It is now 20%, up from 12% less than(?) 2 weeks ago. France has had a really bad day with 1355 deaths, the biggest single day toll anywhere since it all started. 884 of them in nursing homes. My wife visits her Dad in a nursing home twice a week (I've stopped going to minimise the risks both ways). Last visit was yesterday. The staff have told her that she can still visit under the allowed exceptions. But she is questioning whether she should. That stat from France gives more food for thought.
