Re: Coronavirus Thread. Virus v humans

Yeah, noticed that threshold earlier. Covid is now knocking on the door of top ten most lethal pandemics of all time, just behind " a really bad dose of the flu". 2009 Swine Flu killed somewhere between 150,000 and 575,000 depending on estimates. 2013-19 Bird Flu killed 616. 2002-04 SARS killed 774...

Re: Why isn't Perth F*cked

People seem to forget Perth is the most remote city in the world. There are literally 2 roads in to Western Australia. Everyone else flies in. Nice city. People are batshit weird though.
