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. 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.

    I think China data matters a lot.
    Most disasters cause maximal damage at the epicentre, and decreases at it spreads out.
    COVID has been remarkable for its asymmetry. Astonishing.
    How can the largest population on earth, the country where it started, and a country with lots of people living in overcrowded conditions and poverty….. have such low numbers?
    It just doesn’t make sense.

    Is China not testing, and simply letting its young and middle aged catch a “cold” and lettings its elderly die of “old age”

  2. only problem is many countries are manipulating their data so people need be aware.. China was good example but last 8 weeks Russia has been the leader of fake data. At least how it feels unless Russia had the vaccine earlier.
    Also US data too. When everything is financialised many hospitals will report whatever gets them more revenue.

  3. Let’s see the virus stats by ethnic origin and nationality in citizenship or ‘residency status’ like the US & UK provide.

    This is a Migrant borne virus.

    Entering into Australia by returning travellers and third world foreign nationals – many as ‘PR’ who were sucking up our welfare while ‘overseas’.
    (186,000 of the 268,000 who entered Australia since March were third world foreign nationals – Chinese, Indian, Bangladeshi, Middle Eastern etc fleeing their home countries to get back into Australia & to also suck up the double welfare payments)

    And then they spread their infection onshore to migrant guestworker ‘security guards’ etc hired via wechat.

    Who in turn then spread the virus into their vast fetid city migrant zones.

    Into the 2.5 million non Australian third world migrant TR here on pretext and now invalid visas.
    👉🏾The incubation hub.

    🔻Who we find have infested our public housing in cash in hand sub let bunk share.
    🔻Who we find give false identity details and activleug evade any quarantine and contact tracing.
    🔻Who refuse testing as its ‘racist’.

    👉🏾Migrant guestworkers on fake visa pretexts, false identities, living and working illegally who then are the transmission vector as they refuse to be tested, work when they know they are infected.

    👉🏾Who then spread their disease into our Australian community, into our hotels, food processing, retail, restaurants, fast food outlets, shopping centres and bedpan and cleaners in our aged care homes and hospitals.

    The biggest risk to our most vulnerable elderly or sick Australians?

    That an unscreened untested migrant guestworker typically on a false identity, working cash in hand will infect the public place, their hospital or their aged card facility.

    And a huge risk to our healthcare system.

    Hundreds of thousands of third world migrant TR, living in fetid filthy crowded illegal housing, on pretext visas, invalid COe, no funds, no healthcover ..
    They will be the first major wave of the virus outbreak and totally overload our ICU & emergency health care.

    -/-

    These are non Australian third world migrants who sneaked in during good times, have lived and worked here illegally for many years, have no reason to be in Australia (no classes, no skilled job, no rural or regional work, a nonsensical protection visa claim) and are now in visa breach and are criminal illegal Overstayers.

    Every other country is locking down, quarantining, and forcibly deporting their migrant guestworkers.

    Australia also needs to do the same.

    👉🏾It is time for the Dept of Home Affairs & State Police along with the Health authorities to set up public transport and road block checkpoints and enforce the identification and virus testing of all migrants.

    👉🏾We need to see lockdown, and sweeps of the migrant zones / tower block by tower block, suburb by suburb and then disinfection. Aka Wuhan and Singapore or the middle eastern countries.

    The 2.5 million migrant guestworkers TR now here without a valid visa pretext need to be rounded up, force tested, the infected put in quarantine and the rest tagged with electronic bracelets so they can be tracked and traced.
    And the whole lot checked in visa & COe breach as well as funds.
    And all those – the vast majority, to be deported.
    At least 2 million of them.

    250 on a plane, back to their country of origin.
    100 flights a day, well within our capacity.
    That will see up to 2.5 million TR cleared out in 100 days.

    Restoring community health safety✔️
    Ensuring our Health capacity is for Australians✔️
    Restoring over 2 million Australian jobs stolen by these migrant guestworkers✔️
    Freeing up over 600,000 ex Australian dwellings (once disinfected) to be returned back to Australia homeless and those seeking affordable housing✔️
    Cleaning out a long standing social, economic and now bio security risk✔️

    The time to act is now.

      Agreed. But why would the federal government do any of this, when their deliberately inept migration policies over the last decade were implicitly designed to bring in said cheap labour and therefore boost business profits?
