COVID-19 could to be lurking within community for 'up to' two years | Sky News AustraliaA leading professor of microbiology has warned Australians are going to have to be on their guard for the foreseeable future since COVID-19 will be lurking within the community for at least 'the next six months to two years.'\n\nInfectious Diseases Physician Professor Peter Collignon told Sky News said the key to keeping COVID-19 manageable is stopping 'droplet transmission.'\n\n'This is mainly spread by droplets, people who have got mild infections, coughing or sneezing, touching their hands and contaminating surfaces,' he said.\n\n'We are going to have to work out how we stop what we stop droplet transmission and that is actually washing our hands, keeping 1.5 metres away from each other as much as possible.\n\n'By doing that we are really decreasing the risk so it is very low.'\n\nAustralia has been extremely successful at flattening the rate of infection, with only 18 confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the nation on Sunday the 3rd of May.\n\nThere are now only 878 active cases across Australia.\n\nHe said while there will likely be a second wave of transmission in winter, Professor Collignon said it will likely be a 'ripple instead of a tsunami.'\n\n'It is likely in winter we will see more cases than we see now,' he said.\n\n'We know what we have to do to stop this spreading, and so if we get a second wave, if we keep on doing what we are doing, we can make it a little ripple and not a tsunami.\n\n'While we will have clusters, and we will have some spread, we will be able to keep it under control and not be anything like we are seeing on television.\n\n'We will be much closer to Korea than we will be to New York.'\n\n\n CollignonPeter I reckon everyone is so well aware as there are experts popping up everywhere 24/7 telling us.

Prison time on cards for misuse of COVID app data | Sky News AustraliaAnyone who breaches the proposed COVIDSafe security laws could face tens of thousands of dollars worth of fines and potential jail time.\n\nUnder the draft legislation for the government’s contract tracing app an individual who breaches privacy protections could be hit with five years in jail and $63,000 in fines. \n\nThe legislation is set to be considered by parliament next week.\n\nImage: Getty Does that include politicians, police and spy agencies?

I really hope you go bankrupt. When start blaming somebody all you are doing is highlighting your own deficiencies. If it was a financial thing thing then we should start suing the US for the GFC. I'm just wonderinghhow would the today's world leaders respond to the pandemic if it happened in Soviet Union under LeonidBrezhnev?
