Coronavirus

Post by Kevins » Wed Jan 29, 2020 9:32 pm

As of posting, there were 6050 reported cases across China and 130 deaths, representing a 0.02% terminal rate (or 1 chance in 2000.)

There has been worldwide mass buy-up of face masks which appear to be widely sent back to China to support an impossible task of getting out enough to satisfy demand. However, the World Health Organisation reports that most face masks are ineffective. This also means that trades and specialists who require masks for their work are hampered (e.g. plasterers, surgeons...) as the supplies are being brought up wholesale.

Mainland China reports many deaths, including in Beijing. There is probability that the virus will reach its most effective rate in 7-10 days with small chance of growth after this. The virus is popping up across the world and has been found in at least 17 other countries so far.

There is a lot of talk regarding whether face masks are effective. They will help stop you coughing out the virus to others if you already have it. So, if you have a cold, flu like symptoms, it's a good idea to grab one just for that purpose. Most face masks will not stop you getting a cold/flu/virus.

Masks (aka Respirators) are in short supply due to people buying up large and sending back home overseas for Coronavirus affected areas. Our work had boxes/carton lots and we have almost sold out. Most merchants are seeing a significant reduction in available masks and manufacturer's are struggling.

If you are doing a home project and need masks, or want to reduce the risk to family if you already have a cold or flu: Please be sensible if you are renovating and ensure you wear appropriate personal safety equipment. If all our masks end up overseas, business and reno's could suffer!

As you may be aware, WHO has declared a global emergency in relation to the coronavirus. Airlines and governments are shutting down flights and borders to travellers through China, and airports are increasing their border checks for international travellers.

To date, many people in New Zealand and Australia have had to be in quarantine and as a membership, we generally appreciate the support health services and business groups have been giving them. Government, services and Australasia business and have been monitoring the situation and updating the EHS and people teams with guidance and supporting travellers with alternate arrangements.

Here's what you need to know.

What is the current status?

The World Health Organisation has declared the coronavirus outbreak a global health emergency. Effectively immediately the Australian and New Zealand Governments have issued a ‘DO NOT TRAVEL TO MAINLAND CHINA’ warning.

Across australasia there have been individuals placed in self-quarantine for 14 days as a result of potential exposures on airlines or as a result of travel to China.

What if you are intending to travel?

General Travel

• Travel to (or transiting through) China is not permitted with most business groups until further notice. In general, your Chief Executive approval is required if work related travel plans to China is considered essential (but not following, you may be isolated.)

• International travel to other countries should be reviewed regularly due to the increased risk of exposure and travel disruptions during this time.

• Reminder that travel insurance may not cover for losses in connection with the Coronavirus if travel arrangements to China were made after January 29 (and January 22 for travel to Hubei Province).

Personal travel

• If anyone is travelling overseas for a personal holiday at this time, please take extra care for your personal protection. Please also let associates know where you are going in case of an incident or travel disruption.

• Before travelling, review the latest travel advice on www.smartraveller.gov.au (Australia) and www.safetravel.govt.nz (New Zealand).

• Be aware of government-imposed restrictions and delays at airports in Australia and NZ:

1. Any foreign travellers who leave or transit through mainland China will be refused entry into NZ and Australia.
2. Any foreign travellers currently in transit to Australia or NZ will be subject to enhanced screening on arrival and pending clearance will be granted entry.

3. Australian and New Zealand citizens and permanent residents returning from mainland China will be able to enter, as will their immediate family members, but they will be required to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival back into the country.

4. Delays should be expected at all international airports due to heightened border scrutiny.

What if you are returning from overseas or have been in contact with someone who may be infected?

People who have been in contact with any confirmed coronavirus case must be isolated in their home for 14 days following exposure.
Returned travellers who have been in Hubei Province of China must be isolated in their home for 14 days after leaving Hubei Province.

If you are sick with flu-like symptoms AND you have been overseas or in contact with someone who is infected, DO NOT physically go to your GP or local hospital immediately. Call first. Your local health line: 1800 022 222 (AUS) or 0800 611 116 (NZ).

If you are employed, Notify your manager and discuss arrangements if you require 14 days of isolation or else discuss with family and friends ensuring you minimise risk.

We are near the end of the current week’s healing programme. The team realise, with the change of forum member’s area, the healing page will reach some well after the week ends, as they rejoin in a more secure location. It is time to feel fantastic. Be uplifted - revitalised. Time for you to top up your own healing and replenish for the time ahead. In the last few minutes, please, share this healing by thought with all in need, everywhere the need is felt by you at his time.
