    There's evidence that sometime around March there was a mutation that made the virus substantially more effective at infecting cells. It didn't change the likelihood of causing illness once infected or the severity of the illness, it just made it have a higher chance of causing an infection with exposure. This could be why it exploded in Italy then in New York.

    Fortunately, it looks like that mutation doesn't make it any less susceptible to the vaccines being developed. But it's entirely possible that a mutation could occur that does negate the effects of the current vaccine candidates, or that makes the virus much more deadly. The more active cases of infection there are the more opportunities there are for it to mutate, which is one of the least recognized reasons for taking aggressive measure to keep the numbers as low as possible.

    People can cross our border and come in but are isolated for 2 weeks before they can go out.

    Yeah i remember the planes in the air were all over Australia. Lots of them. But there weren't any over the sea. So that would explain it.

    Flight tracker can be deceptive. When you look at a country, it often seems like the sky is totally full of planes. It's not until you zoom in that you see how few and far between they actually are.

    That is true and on the confusing ones which came over our place the other day leaving vapour trails behind them. These didn't show up on the Flight Tracker. So perhaps military ones do not get tracked?

    If a plane is visible, but does not appear on the flight tracker, I discovered this:

    "First, the aircraft may not be fitted with an ADS-B transponder, meaning it is not compatible with our receiver network. Second, if the aircraft is fitted with a Mode S transponder and not visible, it may be flying in areas with little or no MLAT coverage. Third, the aircraft might be flying outside of our network in areas where we have little or no ADS-B coverage. Fourth, the aircraft may be blocked in our system by the owner or operator."

    I don't know. Think of it as confirming the existence of chemtrail spreaders. That should revive interest.

    So around here, if the have the space...many of the bars/clubs/restaurants that featured live music have created outdoor live music events to go along with their outdoor drink/food service...due to the virus restrictions, and the belief that a bunch of people clustered outside is safer than inside.

    To add insult to injury...after experiencing a mini-drought back in the middle of spring, right after things start to reopen...we are now in a regular daily afternoon/evening thunderstorm weather pattern...or it's like so humid outside, that it feels like a sauna...so not I'm seeing many outdoor event cancellations due to weather, since they mostly happen in the afternoon and evening when the thunderstorm formation is highest.

    I also think that the early optimism of live music coming back indoors by the early fall...may very well not happen, and possibly well into next spring/summer.
    Seems like everyone is hoping for a cure or a vaccine for any early end to all this nonsense...but as it stands, the situation is pretty static right now.
    I don't know how much longer many of these places will survive like this...and the cure will be worse than the virus in the long run.

    Our state Western Australia has been extremely lucky due to our state government completely closing the border to the outside world early on. We are almost fully up and running with a restriction on numbers at venues at the moment. Anyone coming into the state has to go through a quarantine period on 2 weeks in a special hotel.

    The state of Victoria has not been so lucky due to selfish people not sticking to quarantine and also going to a big black lives matter demonstration to which a spread of the virus has been tracked back to.

    The other states of Australia are fighting the spread by closing borders but they can not do it as easy as us due to east coast states being closer together and more connected. Makes you glad that my home state is is the west coast and there are only 2 roads an a rail line connecting with a desert in between.

    I have played 4 gigs in 2 weeks, but no sound engineering work out live yet. The gigs are small but it’s a start. Fingers crossed

    At us in Ukraine now the most popular in the conditions of a virus are car concerts in the open air. Everyone is happy: social distance and live music.
