'Like their first day at school': NRL players back after long lay-offNRL players greeted each other today for the first time since the competition was suspended, 42 days ago, but training is set to be delayed a further 24 hours
How Australians spent their first weekend of eased social distancing restrictionsMost of Australia's states had eased their coronavirus restrictions in time for the weekend - so how did residents mark the start of their return to normality? Not Vic yet Sunday morning Coles Five Dock was packed. asked the store manager why they weren’t implementing the 100 person rule and she said that as of Friday 1st May the store distancing rule no longer applied. And I thought the only thing that changed was visiting homes with a 2 adults?🤔 SBS TOO EARLY! Melbourne has shut a school down this morning! Due to this pandemic. I’ll say no more!
Sydney Film Festival to go virtual and national for first time in historyFor the first time in its 67-year history, the Sydney Film Festival will go virtual screening around 30 films online with a focus on Australian documentaries and local short films
Bulldogs flyer the first NRL player set to be moved out of homeCanterbury's Marcelo Montoya, 24, has emerged as one of the first NRL players set to be forced out of his home and into temporary accommodation because his mother works in aged care. This is to satisfy the strict biosecurity measures the game has adopted. NRL should cover the cost.
First-time councillors granted a 'fair go' with three-month amnesty during coronavirus pandemic - ABC NewsFirst-time mayors and councillors who are the subject of minor misconduct complaints will get a three-month amnesty, Queensland's Office of the Independent Assessor says. Not a good example. Should be zero tolerance. Constituents expect perfection from their elected representatives. 'First-time licenced drivers granted three-month amnesty for minor traffic infringements.' Uuummmm why? You can hang out in Phillipines strip clubs... shag your staffers... steal funds & route them to donors... give council contracts to mates & family... If they're immune to even MAJOR complaints... WTF do they need an 'amnesty' from minor ones for?!
Coronavirus updates LIVE: 22 new cases in Victoria, 19 linked to Cedar Meats cluster; PM will not back down on schoolsCedar Meats in Melbourne's west has been confirmed as the meatworks plant at the centre of the latest COVID_19 outbreak. 'All workers are self-quarantining and we are working closely with Victorian health authorities,' says the facility's general manager. Is that a halal place? Bullshit What are the Unions saying...shut down all meat processing facilities?

No restrictions have been lifted in Victoria, with Premier Daniel Andrews saying the government would review the current restrictions on 11 May. Picture: Joep Beumer/Hubrecht Institute Source:Supplied Each of the images is greater than 30-50 GBytes – which is 500 to 1000 times larger than an image recorded on an iPhone. Training was meant to resume on Tuesday, but is now likely to be pushed back 24 hours and start on Wednesday so players have time to digest the information and find alternative accommodation if required. They also show the virus assembling and leaving human intestinal cells.

AAP As of Monday, non-essential businesses and schools in that area will be allowed to reopen. GASTROINTESTINAL SYMPTOMS The team, led by Dundee’s Professor of Quantitative Cell Biology, Jason Swedlow, built the Image Data Resource (IDR), a publication system for very large, complex images recorded using the world’s most powerful microscopes and imaging systems. Scientists from the team also discovered that Sars-CoV-2 can infect the cells of the intestine and multiply there. The club also confirmed Mark Ellison would replace Shane Richardson as the new head of football and Brock Schaefer has become new the chief operating officer. RELATED: Antibody that blocks infection discovered Using state-of-the-art cell culture models of the human intestine, the researchers have successfully grown the virus in test tubes, and monitored the response of the cells to the virus, providing a new cell culture model for its study. People in Australia must stay at least 1. These findings could explain the fact that approximately one third of COVID-19 patients experience gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhoea, and the fact that the virus often can be detected in stool samples. Tigers boss Justin Pascoe told the Herald for most of the players it was like "their first day at school". But a necessary one at such a challenging time for the local industry, said Small.

Picture: Kèvin Knoops, Raimond Ravelli, Maaike de Backer/ Maastricht University Source:Supplied Patients with COVID-19 show a variety of symptoms associated with respiratory organs – such as coughing, sneezing, shortness of breath, and fever – and the disease is transmitted via tiny droplets that are spread mainly through airborne particles. "I'm sure they're all champing at the bit to be a part of it. Testing for coronavirus is now widely available across Australia. One in three patients, however, also suffer gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea and loose stools. On top of this, the virus can be detected in human stools long after the respiratory symptoms have resolved. It's been an extraordinary effort with what's been achieved so far, and now it's about understanding those protocols and making sure we do get the game back on for the benefit of the community. This suggests that it can also spread via so-called “faecal-oral transmission”. SBS is committed to informing Australia’s diverse communities about the latest COVID-19 developments..
Cell biologist Prof Swedlow said, “We’re excited to publish these important new datasets in IDR, where they can be seen by researchers around the world, who can also scan the images and view the Sars-CoV-2 virus up close on their computer. Loading Players like Jarome Luai and Stephen Crichton live with large families and were eager to learn if they would be required to live elsewhere, while Billy Kikau was also unsure whether he would have to move away from his partner, who is a primary school teacher. “We have included annotations from the authors so anyone who reads the paper from the research teams in the Netherlands can easily see what the authors published, but also can examine other parts of the data and maybe make their own discoveries. “This kind of sharing of data has never been more important than in our current situation where we urgently need to work together around the world to find out more about this disease and ultimately be able to treat or control it. Cronulla players started arriving from 8.” Back in March, scientists released images showing the virus erupting out from the surface of human cells which were cultured in a laboratory and taken from a patient in America by the US National Institutes of Health. The round yellow objects seen here under a scanning electron microscope show the virus that causes COVID-19. The Warriors woke up in Tamworth after they touched down Sunday and will spend the next two weeks in the country town before relocating to the Central Coast.

The scans clearly show the spikes on the outer edge of the virus particles which give coronaviruses their name – as ‘corona’ means crown or halo in Latin.

The scientists also discovered from the scans that the virus which causes COVID-19 is stable for several hours to days in aerosols and on surfaces. They found that the bug was detectable in aerosols for up to three hours, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. SURGING DEATH TOLL The new disease emerged in China in December and has never been seen in humans before the current outbreak.
It's been called severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (Sars-CoV-2) by the World Health Organisation and causes an illness that's now named COVID-19. The new strain is thought to have jumped from bats to humans, via a possible but unknown animal, in the Chinese city of Wuhan. So far, there have been more than 247,000 deaths worldwide from the outbreak, while over 3.5 million have been confirmed as ill.
