Thanks to all who've been sending some really interesting ideas and questions about #COVID19au.
I'm off today, and at a loose end, so thought I might summarize some of the themes about the situation that y'all seem to be interested in.
Why is #COVID2019AU such a bitch?
1) It's new. Not everything that is new is brilliant. #COVID2019AU is not the latest iPhone. As a species, we've not met her before, and she is definitely making hay while the sun shine. We have no immunological 'memory' of who she is, so instead
of manning the ramparts immediately, like our bodies might with seasonal influenza, our immunological system is still building the ramparts.
2) She's a relatively mild mannered creature. The majority of patients won't come anywhere to being killed by her, which is A GOOD THING(!)
