  1. The ABS is collecting data on deaths in Australia and is producing charts that indicate "excess deaths" this year to see the effect of Covid-19. Data so far is incomplete and they warn of reading too much into it at this stage. https://www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/mf/3303.0.55.004

    Macarthur FC Head Coach Ante Milicic continues to expand his inaugural team with the signing of 23-year old Liverpool local and former Olyroos centre forward Milislav Popovic. Popovic, returns to home, following stints in Italy, Germany, and Austria, most notably with FC Cologne in the Bundesliga and German second tier side Eintracht Braunschweig. Identified as a special talent from a young age, Popovic played in several local junior representative sides, including with club association partner, Southern Districts Metro team, before going onto Marconi Stallions and Blacktown Demons. The six foot two, centre-forward, is no stranger to Milicic’s playing style, featuring in his Olyroos squad during their AFC u/23 Championship campaign in 2018. Earning eight caps for the Olyroos and finding the back of the net on two occasions, Popovic is set to make his A-League debut just 30 minutes from where he first played as a junior. Macarthur FC Head Coach Ante Milicic, was impressed by the youngster’s natural talent and strength. “I have closely followed Milislav’s career over the last couple of years since he impressed me during the 2018 Asian Cup campaign.In Milislav, the fans can expect a big, strong, technical player with the ability to create and score goals. “Having returned to Australia, I am hoping we can provide him the opportunity to kick start his career and realise his full potential.” Milicic added. Popovic, who this season, will play his first professional football in front of family and friends was excited about the opportunity. “The opportunity to represent my local area on the national stage is a great honour for me. I know my family and friends will be supporting us at every match at Campbelltown Stadium. “Having played under Ante previously with the Olyroos, I know he will have a very clear style of how he would like the team to play, and to be under his guidance again is something I’m really looking forward to.” Popovic said. “Growing up in Liverpool, I know we have extremely passionate football fans in the area and I’m looking forward to seeing them all come together to support the new club.” Popovic added. https://www.macarthurfc.com.au/news/liverpool-local-milislav-popovic-signs-macarthur-fc?fbclid=IwAR2IgbumPm2dJQLCSwkPibx_rf67JfcFomFkf2ANoRmisnq1uaAj1eML978
  5. WHO and CDC estimate that seasonal influenza is associated with 290,000 to 650,000 deaths each year. The first 250,000 recorded deaths from Covid-19 occurred over 101 days. The next 250,000 occurred over 55 days. The latest 250,000 deaths occurred over 47 days. With 162 days to finish off a 12 month period and with the death rate not abating, using about 5,500 deaths per day as an average, another 900,000 to 1,000,000 people could die giving a total of recorded deaths around 1,650,000 to 1,750,000 or 3 to 5 times more than seasonal influenza.
  6. If we have the same number of deaths per 1 million population as the USA we would have 12,300 deaths. Sobering.

  11. This link is to some info on people who have survived Covid-19. https://www.sfgate.com/science/article/What-they-don-t-tell-you-about-surviving-15347792.php
  12. On a sombre note the number of cases worldwide passed 10 million over night and the number of deaths passed 500 thousand... "but its no worse than the flu".
  13. I was reading the transcript of a podcast this evening where the ABC's Norman Swan made the comment that the R0 value for Australia remained at 1 or just under while for Victoria it was between 1.5 and 2.0 which is where exponential growth is probable. He also observed that the regular polling that has been done on restriction compliance in April showed 80% compliance in Victoria but now shows only 25% compliance. I hope people get the message that this thing is still on a knife edge in Australia with the need to follow the basics absolutely essential still if we want the "opening up" to proceed safely.
  14. Indeed, the article says there is robust debate and Sutton is noted as on the conservative side but the reality is the committee generally comes to a consensus view.
  15. Advice to the government comes from the AHPPC which Murphy chairs. Its members are the State and Territory CMO's. They also have co-opted a group of experts to provide the level of advice that is needed when they prepare advice to the government. The linked article gives an insight into the process and Murphy's role in it. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/inside-morrison-s-expert-medical-advice-circle-20200327-p54ekq.html
