  13. There is a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation on the use and purpose of masks. Masks for the purpose of this comment are just those generally used by the public and not the properly sealed full PPE type. Masks will not in any significant way prevent you from inhaling or being exposed to covid or any other airbourne virus. The marginal barrier benefit is easily outweighed by the localised consentration that is created as you breath in through the mask itself. The benefit if masks comes in when worn by infected people actively shedding virus as it does massively reduce the volume of release. In an ideal world only the infected or contact of infected need wear masks but walking around with something that identifies you as a potenial spreader - well you might as well ring a bell and shout ‘unclean unclean’. The only way around this is to try and get everybody to wear masks. mrsmelly made an excellent observation (don’t alway agree I have to say 😊) and that is wearing of masks could well lead to a false sense of security and erode the social distancing dicipline the UK generally seems to have developed. Its probaby what has saved you from a far worse outbreak. Personally I believe social distancing is a far better preventative than masks but both have thier problem of ensuring compliance to a high enough level that will reduce the spread.
  14. No - but as been subsequently pointed out there is currently a spike in Melbourne which is a worry especially as Australian’s didnt really learn how to socially distance etc and have become very complacent. As for the ban on travel, yes, from the 25th March there has been a travel ban https://www.health.gov.au/news/health-alerts/novel-coronavirus-2019-ncov-health-alert/coronavirus-covid-19-advice-for-travellers#travel-from-australia
  15. Yes - wonderful though technology is we have come to that conclusion (the no-no bit) as well and will return for the the build, if we end up going down that route. Not discounting the 2nd hand option at all, we just haven't come across one yet that ticks enough boxes. Given that Australian's aren't allowed to leave Australia) at the moment and probably not for at least a year our timelines is now a lot longer and you never know what will pop up in that time Thanks to all for your opinions and replies. As always ALL appreciated
