The Corona Crucible – Wed 16th September

Despite the fact that we are on track to get this virus under control, a few people are taking legal action against the state government about the lockdown, saying that it infringes on their human rights.

Some people are very quick to be critical. I doubt that they have never held a responsible leadership position where they had to manage a large group. I shudder to think what the situation would be like if it was their job to deal with this health crisis.

The new cases recorded in Victoria in the past day were again 42, so we’ve dodged the Wednesday spike this week. There were another eight fatalities. Our 14 day average is now below the important benchmark of 50 at 49.6.
