Maybe, EB, but at least they are keeping a close eye on things, and seem ready to turn off the tap ASAP.

Cheers

The government has signalled it could remove JobKeeper payments early for businesses which have bounced back from the coronavirus crisis earlier than expected.

Just when the residents of Congo thought things could not get any worse comes news that another out break of Ebola.

From CVT News

QUOTE
DAKAR, SENEGAL -- Health officials have confirmed a second Ebola outbreak in Congo, the World Health Organization said Monday, adding yet another health crisis for a country already battling COVID-19 and the world's largest measles outbreak.

Congo also has yet to declare an official end to Ebola in its troubled east, where at least 2,243 people have died since an epidemic began there in August 2018.

Now Congolese health authorities have identified six cases including four fatalities in the north near Mbandaka, WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
This is a reminder that COVID-19 is not the only health threat people face," he said in a statement.

Four other people were being held in isolation at a hospital in Mbandaka, UNICEF said.

The victims died May 18 but test results confirming Ebola only came back over the weekend, according to Congolese Health Minister Dr. Eteni Longondo. WHO said it already had teams on the ground.

This announcement marks the 11th time that Ebola has hit the province since the virus was first discovered in Congo in 1976. Just two years ago an outbreak killed 33 people before the disease was brought under control in a matter of months.

The latest cases turned up in Wangata health zone near the port city of Mbandaka, which is home to some 1.2 million.

Meanwhile, in the east health officials are still waiting to declare an official end to to the epidemic after nearly two years. The last known patient there was released in mid-May but the country now must go about another month without any new cases before a declaration can be made.

COVID-19 already has touched 7 of Congo's 25 provinces, with more than 3,000 confirmed cases and 72 deaths. However, like many African countries Congo has conducted extremely limited testing, and observers fear the true toll may be far higher.

While Ebola and COVID-19 have drawn far more international attention, measles has killed more Congolese than those diseases combined. WHO said there have been 369,520 measles cases and 6,779 deaths since 2019.


Just got an email from one of the guys I used to work with In Tanzannia.
The president of Tanzannia says that they will no longer be sending stats to the WHO, but rather has encouraged his constituents to go to Curch and pray, and that will protect them from the virus. Just what the cits need , another god botherer feeding them bullshit.

What a surprise. So what happens now?

Forever confined to our homes for our own good. Only allowed out if you have signed on to the app. and carrying a valid certificate of health. But only for Covid. It's perfectly ok to carry on with TB, HIV, Hepatitis and whatever else. If you wish to send your kids to kindergarten or school without any vaccinations so they can infect others then that is your choice because to do otherwise would impugn your human rights.
What commercial strategy have our leaders got up their sleeve to be able to deliver commercially viable outcomes against this disease? So far, in the US its been all about PPP's for PPE gear and ventilators.

Trump must have a trick up his sleeve when we are only five weeks out from Independence Day.

looks like there is a software bug.
I bet someone in the IT department uploaded a new improved version of the IM message software, without sufficient testing.
It happened before.

In the vulnerable category, for Covid, so getting away from the madding crowd makes sense. Only issue with looking for a bolthole is the services ... healthcare and specialists loom front of mind.

EB,

At last count I think I have been in the 7 figure count at least 4 times in the last 30 years.
Lost my shirt with Opes Prime when like you I was looking at 8 figures. Still reckon it was not my fault. Did everything right, but ANZ took me to the cleaners.

With luck I will be back to 7 figures by this time next year. If everything goes to plan. Has not been easy and like you, licking my wounds.

I don't think I will be able to do it again if the shit hits the fan. Over 70 now and just don't have the energy to put into investing.

My focus right now is not so much rebuilding but keeping and getting a reasonable return to live on.

Also looking for a place to hole up for the next 20 years. Getting out of the city and onto the beach. Looking at Hervey Bay or the like.

What I mean EB - its never too late. Never give up

Keep posting eb when you're up for it. I don't spend as much time around here as I used to but whenever I do drop by I'm always happy to see a new eb post. I really appreciate your take on events.

Hang in there, mate.
