China did that for 6 weeks and have now contained the virus, so it wouldn’t necessarily mean the season is done. It does look to be slower to contain here unfortunately.
Even if the trend of people getting the virus go downs. Football won’t start.
AFL has its fingers crossed that vaccine is found tomorrow.

I've seen estimates of 12 -18 months for a vaccine to be found, tested and manufactured, so don't hold your breath

Vaccines are in testing now in Aus, the USA, Canada and Europe (Germany I think), and possibly elsewhere. Problem is that testing takes around 12 months. This is because of the need to ensure that the solution is effective, and not worse than the cause.

Curative solutions are also in the works. Some Aussie researchers identified that an anti-AIDS drug and an anti-malarial drug can have a significant impact on a COVID-19 infection, with patients showing no virus activity 72 hours after being treated. Clive Palmer stumped up $1 Million to fund the research and trials. Clinical trials would take approximately 6 months.

As Ant said - Don't hold your breath.

Isolate, wash your hands, care for your family and community.

Oh - And *smile* you Copyingwood! (Just on principal)

Does anyone know which Pies v Richmond game they're showing on Foxtel tonight?

As soon as I read they are going with a Live Recall of past matches with McGuire leading the commentary team..... you can only imagine they'll be making us squirm through Collingwood’s last great
Premiershipliminary victory!
1980 would be nice!
