Data sources

This is a list of some of the main data sources we use:

https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ Probably the best source of the latest COVID-19 statistics

https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-the-hammer-and-the-dance-be9337092b56 Tomas Pueyo has written a number of very good summaries of the strategies to overcome coronavirus

https://www.capitaleconomics.com/the-economic-effects-of-the-coronavirus/ Good source of fast-moving China economic stats.

https://bnonews.com/index.php/2020/02/the-latest-coronavirus-cases/ If you want to be bombarded with every breaking news story, this is the place

https://ncov.dxy.cn/ncovh5/view/pneumonia  Faster than worldometers for Chinese data, but slower on rest of the world data. I don’t think China cases matter anymore.

https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/situation-reports I’m less enamoured of the WHO data now than I was at the start of the crisis. They are providing less information now than they were at the start of the crisis, and it sometimes contradicts country-level data.

https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 The prettiest pictures, but one of the slower sites to update. I don’t find the charts that useful.

  1. Chile is in Latin America ? Might want to re-categorise it to Central and South America, if you’re going to include countries all the way down to the Antarctic ocean.

    But that geography-pedantry aside, thanks for the charts and the report.

    I read today that the Republic of Ireland now has mandatory face coverings when in public, with a 2500 eruo fine if you’re not.

    • Latin America includes the entire SA land mass.

      ‘In the foreword to the 1997 edition, Isabel Allende stated that “after the military coup of 1973 I could not take much with me: some clothes, family pictures, a small bag of dirt from my garden, and two books: an old edition of the Odes by Pablo Neruda and the book with the yellow cover, Las venas abiertas de América Latina”‘

      • huh. The things you learn on an economics. Latin America and Central America in my mind were somewhat interchangeable, with South America being different but there you go. Thanks 🙂

  2. China Virus
    20.5 million infected globally. (Estimates are 3 times this in real infected).
    750,000 dead and 1.8 million seriously damaged.
    Expect over 100 million infected in 60 days.
    And 1 billion in 6 months.
    And over 7 billion in a year with over 240 million dead.

    👉🏾Assume no vaccine any time soon.

    The only tactical path for Australia in the next year is hard borders and national isolation.

    Lessons learnt & mistakes not to be repeated.

    👉🏾The Australian federal government allowed over 280,000 people from February.. From China, India, Europe, the US and many other Chinese virus infected countries into Australia….
    with 186,000 of those being non Australian citizens as PR fleeing back to Australia to suck up our welfare and Medicare, along with 25,000 TR / TV – all with minimal or no screening controls.
    Huge mistake.
    The answer is no one in or out.
    Some remote Airforce airstrip and nearby a 2 week quarantine camp for those do fly in or out and plans cargo.
    Same with shipping, no onshore access and all cargo coming in disinfected (the virus can persist for up to 4 days on various surfaces and is now found in many shipping crew members).

    👉🏾Shut down the Australian fake foreign education sector and revoke all visas.
    This has been a long standing corrupted third world migrant trafficking route using ‘foreign education’ as a visa alibi.
    And this is an industry who paid for and assisted many overseas infected into Australia via ‘transit stopovers in third countries’ to evade any checks or quarantine. Criminals.

    Let’s also examine the root cause of the current Melbourne outbreak – from the police evidence being given.
    👉🏾 Asian prostitutes on a PR, coming back in from China and east Asia – who promptly set up shop in the Australia government funded quarantine hotels – to service customers, hotel staff and security guards in these hotels.

    👉🏾The root cause was the Vict government use of migrant labour hire companies, who had hired migrant guestworker lowlife as ‘security guards’ with no training or PPE.
    These illegally working migrants then had sex and got the disease from the infected Asians – and then they spread the China Virus to their Melbourne Indian, Pakistani and Sudanese, Somalian communities.

    And it spread thru the migrant underground community in Melbourne (who have infested our Australia funded public housing). Who spread the China Virus thru their filthy overcrowded cash in hand bunk share to other migrants..

    and then those migrants as the incubation hub and transmission vector spread their disease into the wider Australia community including as cleaners and bed pan staff into our aged care homes and hospitals.

    Resulting in thousands of new infections.

    Killing a lot of senior Australians in aged care.
    Infecting many Australians in food, retail, wholesale.

    This virus is from China.
    Initially it was only spread by Chinese.
    A complete ban on all Chinese from January was needed. Instead we allowed them in.
    Then we allowed the infected coming in to spread the disease into our vast third world migrant slums.

    The China Virus has infected 20 million globally.
    Virtually every country in the world.

    We know from the police evidence that the migrant TR and others working illegally in the foreign criminal run migrant black economy are the weak point and incubator and transmission vector to infect themselves and then Australians.

    👉🏾The answer is simple.

    Many other countries deported their migrant guestworkers as a bio security risk, and economic risk also in Job theft at a time of crisis and massive unemployment.

    We need public identification and electronic bracelets for all non citizen migrant guestworkers.
    All 2.5 million (1.1 million alone in Melbourne)

    Ideally with a flashing bio hazard light that displays ‘non Australian PR TR high risk of virus infection’ as a public safety and community health measure.

    All of them identified, tagged and tracked via the electronic bracelet.
    Their activities and locations / movements tracked.
    Their illegal jobs and activities shut down.

    Almost all will be in visa & COe breach.
    🔻They have no valid reason to in Australia.
    🔻No classes & no fees being paid (and they can study online in their home country)
    🔻No ‘skilled job’ pretext
    🔻No protection visa pretext
    🔻No working holiday or backpacker pretext
    🔻No funds
    🔻No health cover – they will be a huge risk and burden and swamp our public healthcare system system as the first major wave of infections.
    Infecting our public places

    Then you will know that your Bangla in Deliveroo, or the Chinese or Indian Uber, or the Nepalese or Sudanese touching your food at McDonald’s and Burger King, the Sikh or Pakistani infecting the 711 or Caltex customers, or the Indian or Asian shelf stacking and infecting the Woolworths, Coles & Aldi customers, or the Chinese or Indian infecting our restaurants are a risk.
    The old Chinese infected couple with their dirty masks unwashed for 2 weeks, trailing an aerosol plume of virus infection as they shuffle thru the shopping centre big flashing light ‘Virus Bio Hazard’…
    Nothing racial about it.
    They are high risk – exposed to overseas, live in migrant enclaves and they are the incubation hub and transmission vector – over 98% of all infections trace back to a migrant / traveller.
    Same with public transport, you know not to get on the train or tram when it’s full of infected Indian or Asians wearing a non citizen tracking and virus warning bracelet.

    Police checks & forced identification and reason why these migrants are in our public places.
    Their funds and sources of income checked.
    Their visa and COe status checked.
    👉🏾Not allowed in a public place unless they have police clearance.

    👉🏾 And then the round up and deportation.

    There will be a least 2.5 million third world migrant Tar living working (and breathing / infecting / spreading the virus / posing a risk to our health care capacity) who should be exited.

    Freeing up some 2 million jobs for Australians.✔️
    Freeing up over 600,000 modest dwellings that can be returned back to Australians once disinfected.✔️
    Reducing the overload risk to our hospitals & ICU✔️

    100 flights a day (well within our spare airplane and airport capacity with 250 of these non citizens on each plane.
    25,000 a day exited – back to their third world country of origin.

    100 days sees the 2.5 million third world migrant TR overshoot cleaned out.

    Who should never have been allowed into Australia in the first place.

    • You forgot hotbedding & stacking bunks like cordwood, or was that in the quarantine motels?

      • Well clearly a fair bit of ‘hot bedding’ in the quarantine hotels.

        What did Australia expect?
        We allowed in over 280,000 people since March.

        The majority, 186,000 weren’t even Australian.
        They were foreign nationals Asian & Indian PR and a bunch of TR on fake visa pretexts.
        Fleeing back to Australia to suck up our welfare and Medicare.

        The Asian TR – foreign students and also tourist visitors are the mainstay / stock in trade of the Australian vice industry.
        Well over 50,000 at any one time.
        What they are trafficked in for.
        Mostly end of life Chinese and north Asian prostitutes trafficked in by the foreign criminal syndicates.
        Or the abandoned mothers and bar girls of Bangkok, Isan, KL, Hanoi, Manila, KL & Jakarta etc,
        The Asian PR who came in were mostly ex Asian TR working girls or their pimp / petty criminal partners.
        The Indians, Bangladeshi, Arabs PR who cd would also be from the same amoral lowlife slum or rural areas of the third world – all bottom of the barrel scrapings.

        So put a large number of Asian hookers in an Australian taxpayer funded nice hotel / most in the CBD, they are going to do what they do.

        And so they set up shop, and spread their China Virus infection to the local migrant TR – hired via wechat and the blackmarket labor rings / to pose as security,

        Who spread their Asian hooker sourced infection to their wives & kids (Melbourne towers & Islamic school and the Africans & Indian migrant TR infection).

        Who in turn spread it via retail, wholesale, deliveroo, Uber, McDonalds, Burger King, 711 and every other place these migrant guestworkers steal Australia jobs work illegally.
        And into our aged care – the infected Asian or Indian or African doing the bed pans, in the kitchen or cleaning the floor / infecting our Australians in aged care and also causing the infection of over 900 health staff.

        👉🏾Migrant borne virus.

        Every migrant non citizen needs to be vetted before being allowed outside.

        And all migrant TR issued with electronic surveillance and monitoring bracelets with an illuminated flashing light sign that they pose a community health risk.

        Until they can be rounded up and deported.
