China is so something right. They're lifting their lockdown April 8th

No. Because everyone is scrambling for the same medical supplies. International supply chains are affected so it will cause shortages & provide excuses for price hikes on everything from clothes or cars to imported foods. Supermarkets are already doing it.

It also means lockdowns to eradicate/slow infections are compromised when borders re-open. I'm on several international travel forums & a lot of people don't give a stuff - they think they're entitled to their holiday. Some are still asking how to circumvent bans to holiday internationally, or even if they can attend crowded camp grounds at Easter.

No. Everyone is at breaking point. When a place like China bites the dust, no worries who cares. But when a civilised place like Italy goes down the same path then it is truly terrifying.

Maybe Italy is not as civilised as you think, otherwise they wouldn't have far more deaths than China. Something went wrong. And for the record, if China bites the dust, i'd care. No I'm not chinese. I'm 100% Aussie, born and bred. I just have little bit of human decency and compassion for everybody else going through this

It has nothing to do with being civilised. If you think about Italy, it has a huge population. With other countries all around with equally huge populations. Italians are very social, very affectionate. It was being spread around before anyone even knew about it.

Months before this Covid 19 hit, China had identified Italy as the weak link they could use to undermine the EU.

Italy is a basket case of debt, so they had accepted "loans with conditions" - like handing over land assets if they could not repay.

So the Chinese had a presence there, and even up until a few days ago, there were direct flights coming in from Wuhan. That connection is probably why the Chinese sent a medical team there.
So that may have contributed to the ferocity of the outbreak.

Also terrifying to think the entire world is scrambling to get their hands on the same medical supplies - surely once stocks are wiped out there will only be a limited number to go round.. didn't think about this when we outsourced the majority of our manufacturing

The whole world not just Australia. And that thought alone is both terrifying and comforting. As everyone is feeling the same.
