The World Health Organization published new guidance Thursday, saying it can’t rule out the possibility that the coronavirus can be transmitted through air particles in closed spaces indoors, including in gyms and restaurants.

The WHO previously acknowledged that the virus may become airborne in certain environments, such as during “medical procedures that generate aerosols.” The new guidance recognizes some research that suggests the virus may be able to spread through particles in the air in “indoor crowded spaces.” It cited “choir practice, in restaurants or in fitness classes” as possible areas of airborne transmission.

Talking to my Brother in law who lives in Wodonga, works in Albury about the difficulties of getting across the border.
First day was 1 hour and twenty minutes, but today was only about 40 minutes.
He made the valid point that the NSW government has been warning about the hard closure of the border for at least the last ten days.
So why on earth did they not think to put a few of the 8 billion Public servants to work on designing a permit system before the lockdown occurred??
The sort of disdain that the city based governments have for regional areas was amply demonstrated by the decision to put large concrete barriers at both sides of some bridges to stop the crossings.
Too bad if people on one side needed ambulance or fire access.
To save themselves the trouble of having to monitor these "remote" bridge crossings, they sentenced locals to 200 km round trips for something that would normally take 15 kms.
Gladys not endearing herself to the locals.

“Obviously they’ve had considerable time to consider their options to this point in time,” she said.

“Can I state quite stridently that we will be charging overseas visitors rather than charging NSW residents …

"However the gate was left open by the premier with the returning travellers and his choice of security. This decision will no doubt haunt him as it continues to damage the Victorian economy and people’s livelihoods."

I empathize with those Melburnians who are going into lockdown or have been imprisoned in their own homes. It leaves that question in ones mind of, what did I ever do to be treated like a criminal? Stripped of their civil rights and dignities for a virus which even if you do contract, is about 98% recoverable. Just like it is with any other winter bug you get.

Just wait for the lawlessness to raise up. Followed by the vigilantism. We had it here in NZ. Seriously, people go nuts.

there is a bit of media boosting in those numbers. Drilling down, quite a few of the so called refusals were people declining because they had been tested elsewhere, in the previous few days.

Never let the facts get in the way of a good headline

Ditto in Rozelle and Balmain yesterday. Queues of cars with perfectly healthy people wanting to be tested. Why? For what point? Maintain distance, do not cough on others, go home if sick (and then get tested)

For a given stream of expected future cash payments, the higher the price investors pay today for that stream of cash, the lower the long-term return they will achieve on their investment over time." - Dr John Hussman

We have seen some media reports in other parts of the country where people have refused to take the test ... It is compulsory and we have 100 per cent compliance with testing."
