The corona-virus second wave in Australia
World problems and my views
Welcome to our article (106) world news and my views, October 2020
Dear readers, this is the month of October 2020, there are a lot of things happening and about to happen; so, we want to write our diary to keep track of what happens. What the world is worried about is this second wave of the COVID19. Most country’ leaders realize that it is hard to choose what to do, whether they should lock-down, or should try to keep the economy going; it seems to me that they must find a way to balance everything for the best outcome.
In Australia strange as it seems, not every state has been effected the same, it is a bit different from the first outbreak, when the NSW was the state with most corona-virus positive people, and the total number of death people in Australia was near 100.
Anyhow, today it is the state of Victoria that has most sick people. To understand what we are saying, let us write the number of people affected in each state, today is the 26th of October 2020, Australia has (had) 27500 cases positive and 905 deaths; the state of Victoria has, 20340 positive and 817 deaths; NSW. has 4380 positive and 53 deaths; Queensland has 1167 positive and 6 deaths; WA 760 positive and 9 deaths; SA. 490 positive 4 deaths; Tasmania 230 positive and 13 deaths; Canberra 114 positive 3 deaths; NT. 33 positive no deaths.
Now this is not happening only in Australia, it is happening in the entire world, with over 43,000,000 people positive, and with USA at the top;
USA; 8,700,000 positive cases, and 228,500 deaths.
India; 7,900,000 positive cases and 119,000 deaths.
Brazil; 5,400,00 positive cases and 157,000 deaths.
Mexico 891,000 positive cases and 89,000 deaths.
These are the 4 countries with most deaths.
Anyhow, the entire world is worried about what is happening, in Europe a second wave has started, so, they are worried and thinking to introduce a second lock-down, they do not know what to do, because if they introduce a full lock-down again, there will be a lot of people that can be financially ruined, and then again if they don’t there can be a lot more dead people. So, they hope that a vaccine can be made soon to solve this health problem. I believe that for Europe and America is going to be hard this winter, because this virus seems to be more active when it is cold.
Now let us look at what else is happening in the world, which is about the USA elections and the Queensland elections, and the Melbourne Cup because these are what we are going to hear on the news for a while.
Which One is going to be the premier
The Queensland elections.
Because I live in Queensland and I can be affected from this election, I will talk about the Queensland elections first, the elections will be held the 31 of October. The premier Anastacia Palaszczuk does not say much what she is going to do financially after the elections, she talks only about the need to keep the borders close because of the COVID19 dangers. But there are rumours that they are going to introduce the death tax to pay for the debits that these pandemic and other things are causing. The leader of the opposition is much the same, they criticize the other party and do not say much, however, they want to cut the working force to save money. So, it is hard to decide which party you want to win.
Anyhow, we must wait to see what happens after the 31st of October. I do not care much which party wins, I want only that wins the party that is going to tax me less.
So, I believe that it will be a busy week for news, the first week of November 2020, after we know who won the Queensland elections, there is the Melbourne Cup to follow, which this year because of the COVID19 there will not be any spectators to see the race. It will still happen, but it will be vastly different from the previous years, when all the ladies dressed lavishly to attend the race, which was half the fun.
Anyhow, today the 1st of November 2020, at the Queensland elections yesterday the Labour Party has won again, so, Anastacia Palaszczuk is still the premier of Queensland.
Editing again, the third of November 2020, today the Melbourne Cup, the race that stops the nation working for a few minutes has been run, the horse that won the race, Twilight Payment has been leading the race from start to finish, so, nobody is contesting how the race was run.
Now there are the American elections to be held, where the entire world wants to know, who is going to win; Donald Trump, or Joe Biden. I wonder if the American election will be the same as the Melbourne Cup, a one-horse race, or the other way around.
Which one will be the next American president
The American elections
We must say, that the American elections are the most important in the world, because it not only affects the American people, it affects most of the western world if not all the world, because whatever America does affects everyone of us. So, people want to know, who is going to win and what are their policies.
We have President Donald Trump with his strange and colorful ways of saying things, he is a strong character and gets things done his own ways, which most times work alright.
Then we have Joe Biden, who is a lot calmer, so, I wonder if he is strong enough to control the American people like Trump does. It is hard to say which one could be the better leader to lead America the next 4 years.
What seems obvious now, is that everybody is waiting for the outcome of these elections, it is like the calm before the storm. I am saying this because most of the violence that we have witnessed a few months ago has stopped, it is like that they are waiting for a favorable outcome of the election. But because there must be a loosing side. The question here is, will the loosing side accept the outcome of the elections or are they going to rebel? Only time can tell, so, we must wait after the election.
Today is the 8th of November 2020, the American elections have been held, and they have been counting votes for a few days. Because the result is close. But today Joe Biden as President elect and Kamala Harris the chosen vice President have claimed victory. To me this seems a bit strange, because President Donald Trump has not conceded defeat yet, so, I wonder if this can be legally done.
Anyhow, last time I heard President Trump speak he said that he is going to contest the outcome of this election, because they are counting illegal votes. Therefore, now America and the entire world are waiting what is happening next. The question here is; will President Trump accept and concede defeat soon? Or can he come up with enough evidence to contest the election result. We are all continuing to wait and see what he will do next. That is all for today.
We are going to continue this article when we know the outcome.
To be continued.
