Problem with Trump is that the people who have unflinchingly backed him and wear MAGA Caps will cling to anything to validate their beliefs. To admit they were completely wrong after the massive vocal campaign is really too hard for most humans. So if they can avoid it, they will.

classic Trump cult. he can do no wrong in the eyes of many. the USA's slow response to COVID-19 should really sound the death knell for Trump, but I don't think it will.

I’d like to say I was surprised when he changed his mind about shutting down New York and nearby regions yesterday, but the economy must always come first at the expense of everything else. He probably still believes they can still re-open by Easter.

Can you believe his approval rating has increased in the last 2 months? Apparently its now the highest it has ever been.

Yes, but that's fairly normal when the population is under stress / threat. But, dunno, their choice I guess.

Be careful there @caesar ..... you may be accused of having TDS by some! Goes to show what a bunch of knuckleheads they are who voted for him and still reckon he's doing a great job, possibly 10 outta 10... fmd!

No one on here is willing to support Trump anymore, or admit how wrong they were.

Yesterday I saw SCOMOs presser, 60 minutes, TV , radio , newspaper and social media...information overload. It’s so hard to work out the truth.
My take is that there are shoots of good news, the growth rate has slowed, but if we take the foot off the peddle that will soon change.
The 6 months has always been a time period where we will have some form of restrictions in. What is likely is that there will be some social distancing and pretty severe restrictions on travel for 6 months or so.
Even if we are successful in slowing down the virus many parts of the world are not so we can’t import a 2nd wave.
I would have thought the best case scenario is to get the virus under control enough to be able to loosen restrictions to a point that there can be some economic activity but to maintain fortress Australia for a longer period.
We aren’t anywhere near that yet however
Exactly what the plan is. Delay the spread now to give time to get more ICU beds set up and massively increase the medical supplies. In addition to then spread the confimed cases over a lot longer.

If we are successful then the Government will begin to kick start the economy to get 4 or 5 of the 8 cylinders working until the vaccine is available and administered. Time wise will depend on what we all do now and for the next few months.

Just expect the borders to Australia to remain closed for 12/24 months. Reopening will be based on the state of the virus in the rest of the world

Better late that never. Aussie government have now joined the party to offer wage subsidies. Good option but need to see the detail to be sure but looks good right now.

This is quality information. I’d follow the above before anything else being reported.

Out of curiosity, did they give an indication of the recommended dose for the vitamins?
thanks 123. I trust this guy as well. He wasn’t specific but the vitamins are in a tablet called ‘Immune’. C,D, and Zinc are the ones. Too much C is no good, but 2000mg per day is fine. He said today he’s “necking fruit” and “alfalfa, parsley, ginger”. the other vitamin tablet he mentioned was ArmaForce.

The obsession with Donald Trump while the whole world literally goes to hell will make for a fascinating future study. You have my sympathies.
Focusing on the leader of a SuperPower who's country is currently getting hit very hard by this pandemic isn't that strange at all. His decisions and actions will make a big impact globally
