Australia, state of Victoria lockdown update.

source link: news.com.au

Victorian Premier (similar to a US Governor) Daniel Andrews, has outlined the long-awaited changes to coronavirus restrictions across the state.

(Note: Stage 4 lockdown has been in place since August 2, 2020.)

For the first time in more than 100 days (seems more like 12 months) Melbourne residents will be able to leave their homes for more than two hours – as far as 25km (about 15.5 miles).

Time limits for exercise and social activities will be scrapped from 11.59pm Sunday.

Metropolitan residents will be able to gather outside in groups of up to 10 (from two households) and travel restrictions will extend from 5km (3 miles) to 25km.

Masks will remain mandatory and the controversial ban on golf will be lifted – but patrons will not be allowed to enter club rooms.

Tennis clubs, skateparks, hairdressers and the real estate industry have also been given the green light to reopen.

Outdoor pools can host up to 30 swimmers.

From November 1, a greater number of changes – including the reopening of retail and hospitality and the scrapping of the four reasons to leave home – will come into play, though Mr Andrews promised it could be sooner.

The 25km rule will be in place until at least Nov 1; possible for a 4 week extension.

These announcements came ahead of the Australian Rules Football (AFL = aerial ping pong for some) grand final next weekend.
And the first Tuesday of November - the Melbourne Cup for the horsey and social types.

And a side note: firearm ranges and associated retail outlets, are still firmly closed, for an undetermined timeframe. Shutdown earlier this year.
As soon as they could, like agenda item #1.

I have a personal opinion here - you guess the language.

Took my family to the pumpkin patch and corn maze today in Utah. Thousands of people there. Zero masks. No one asked you to wear one, and no one was. Lots of American flags and Trump gear visible though. We were happy to see people being free and enjoying the outdoors.

Rapper brags in music video about fraudulent unemployment benefits, gets arrested by feds

"Nuke Bizzle" reportedly applied for over $1.2 million in benefits, made available in the coronavirus relief act signed into law this spring.

A rapper who bragged in a music video about obtaining fraudulent unemployment benefits has been arrested by federal agents on charges related to the alleged scheme, according to the Justice Department.

Fontrell Antonio Baines, who raps under the name Nuke Bizzle, "boasted in a YouTube music video about getting rich from committing unemployment benefits fraud," the DOJ said Friday in a press release. He was arrested on Friday "pursuant to a criminal complaint alleging a scheme to fraudulently obtain unemployment insurance benefits under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act."

Baines and several co-conspirators reportedly utilized fake addresses to obtain pre-loaded benefit cards, with which they were able to access over $700,000 in cash.

In one music video, Baines reportedly bragged about "go[ing] to the bank with a stack of" unemployment cards. He is facing a maximum of 22 years in prison related to the charges.

That is the epitome of draconian...and barbaric. Our Governor has, once again, renewed the State of Emergency that he has unilaterally declared since March, and mask wearing as well as various other social distancing rules remain in effect...but as much as I despise them, certainly not what Australians have had to endure.

My first instinct is to question why free Australians continue to vote and support the politicians that implement such draconian folly...but then I have to remind myself that we have our share of easily frightened cowards right here in the good ol' U.S. of A. who are only all too willing to fall lock-step in line with their elitist betters and follow mindless orders while gladly surrendering freedom.

Whatever happened to simply informing people, or better yet, a governed people informing themselves, assessing their individual risks, and then taking responsibility for the actions that make the most sense for their respective situations?

Recall that Twitter made Dr Atlas take this down:



After a short ban, he's back up. First tweet out of the gate:

"And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth."

Senate Democrats blocked another coronavirus relief package proposed by Republicans during a floor vote on Tuesday. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) attempted to adjourn the upper chamber on Monday night as Republicans tried to pass additional relief. The GOP-proposed package also included additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which served as a lifeline for small businesses affected by COVID-19.

Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans pressed Senate Democrats to put the American people first, but the minority party blocked the stimulus package, again.

And the "experts" are just figuring this out now?

https://www.foxnews.com/health...sh-oral-rinses-study

This study by the Penn State College of Medicine, and backed up by two previous studies, states that 99.9% of human corona virus is inactivated by some mouthwashes.

So all this time, while all the media & the sheep were breathlessly awaiting Dr Fauchi's next announcement, the spread of this pandemic could've been slowed months ago by people using mouthwash?

Hardly IB, you need to do a bit more research before posting something like this. It does nothing to help educate people on C19. This is total BS as it relates to this pandemic or so called pandemic. Depending on your perspective.

How do you inactivate a virus? Is that like putting it to sleep for a while? Big Grin

Using mouthwash is a great way to eliminate oral bacteria - but probably not very effective against a virus.

I rinse my mouth with several ounces of mouthwash daily and find it very soothing and leaves a nice fresh taste. Grain alcohol is my preferred mouthwash type...

On another note, DUH! Alcohol kills virus cells. In other news, water is wet!

Mouthwashes help reduce transmission by reducing the viral cells in your mouth, which is where transmission starts, ie, spit and cough, so gargle all day, every day, to reduce your orally transmitted viral cells. At least that's what it reads like...



Lead study author Craig Meyers, a distinguished professor of microbiology and immunology and obstetrics and gynecology, said the results show that the amount of virus (viral load) in an infected person’s mouth could be reduced by using these common over-the-counter products, ultimately helping to reduce the spread of the novel virus.
