    Is it really accurate though? Doubled in 3 days but where we testing as many people 3 days ago as we are today?

    Like the 500 people thing. If that was to only be for 2 weeks then there would be no issue but the uncertainty is the problem atm.

    No point shutting the NRL down now if in a week it becomes total lockdown. Better off to save that until then

    Lol, go back and read his posts, and then f**k off.

    Oh yeah, where have the experts said we're all going to be inside until spring and we're all going to lose a loved one? Cause that's the shit wibble has been sprouting.

    Yeah it's so 'cool' and 'edgy' to keep a calm head and not act like the whole world has to shutdown for 6 months.

    This is the shit he was talking a few days ago:

    Shutdown for a few weeks? Nope, he said we'd be 'stuck inside for months'! Only allowed to go to the shops and chemists! And if we don't it will be like Italy!

    And then talks total bullshit because South Korea never went into lockdown like China or Italy. But don't worry, we'll be able to come outside in Spring!

    If the death rate is 1% you'll probably lose a couple of people you know.

    If it's 3% you'll probably lose a family member. Maybe one you love, maybe one you can't f**king stand.

    V'Landys is very concerned about the financial impact the pandemic will have on " Rubby League "

    Everything will get massive financial losses except for a few things but Vlandy saying that league could die is rubbish. Rugby League will always exist here.

    Well that graph uses different numbers of cases and different days. It starts when Italy's cases were already over 1,500.

    https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/italy/
    When Italy was at 79, it took one day for cases to double to 157. After that it took 2 days to double to 323. Our growth has been much slower. Iran and South Korea had similar growth rates.

    You can't just pick and choose data from whenever in the timeline. Otherwise you can go right back to the start and say 'look we went from 5 to 15 in 1 day, Australia's cases are tripling!'

    to be fair he did say it would exist here. Just not in its current form.

    Peter V'Landys does not seem to understand that there are very powerful forces in this country that would only be too pleased at the prospect of Rugby League dying.

    By projecting vulnerability so early and so nakedly, it has now only emboldened those forces.

    Furthermore, his pronouncements yesterday have now created a PR nightmare for the game, making it look greedy and insensitive to the wider impacts of this virus.

    The bloke comes across as a coked-up Sydney spiv. I am sure he gets along famously with the prominent mediocre politicians in that city.

    I wasn't suggesting that Australia was at Italian levels. But rather the rate is nothing to scoff at given that the rate of growth is comparable to a nation in locked down because of uncontrolled growth.

    Italy had experienced doubling every 2 day end of Feb/early March which lead to the issue. This has slowed marginally since lock downs. Australia doubled in 3 days. No - it's not as severe as Italy was. But our cities aren't as populated.

    Australia needs to act now to minimise the impact as much as possible.

    Who are the powerful forces who want to see league dead ?

    As mentioned before, the quote about wanting $200 mil compensation from the government was a joke reply from a tongue in cheek question from a journo..its just that ill informed people took to twitter not realising the context.

    The NRL directly and indirectly employs 10k people. Having games cancelled stops these peoples income and that's why Vlandys wants the game to be included in the governments stimulus package.

    Vlandy had a similar problem in horse racing when they got shut down by flu. He managed to get $215 million compensation from the government.

    Despite his speech impediment ( not sure why this is an issue ?) I'd say he's the perfect person to be in charge.

    PS Union ( who only have 18mil cash reserve ) has also gone to the government for help and I'm certain the AFL will too.

    Closed cases

    84,269
    Cases which had an outcome:
    77,753 (92%)
    Recovered / Discharged

    6,516 (8%)
    Deaths


    ACTIVE CASES
    85,287
    Currently Infected Patients
    79,366 (93%)
    in Mild Condition

    5,921 (7%)
    Serious or Critical

    We're looking at somewhere between 7-8% death rate - so 70-80x worse than the flu. cool cool cool cool

    We also can't have it drag it long though. We will have huge unemployment and homelessness otherwise

    Those figures are wildly incorrect.
    The fatality rate is somewhere between 0.2% to 1%

    The fact that the website you provided a link to has the following warning pretty much sums up its reliability.

    We apologize for the temporary disservice that you may have experienced. For about 20 minutes, our site showed clearly incorrect data due to a malicious act. We have investigated the issue and we're now implementing protective measures to prevent this from happening again. The other day we got hit with a big DDoS attack. Now this. We'll continue with our daily efforts and we'll not give up

    Well no, it takes information directly from government releases of information.

    That attack, showed the Vatican to have over 850,000 deaths, that's the only misinformation that has been on there.

    0.2% - 1% - where are you getting that tripe from - laughable.

    Those figure of 0.2 to 1% are what the world health organizations are saying. Do a quick google search and you'll find plenty of articles. TIP make sure you set your Google search tools for 'last 24hours' for the latest info.

    If you're getting your info off a site that's easily hacked it's about as reliable as Wikipedia - laughable
