Yesterday, I couldn’t resist.
For health reasons, I have been staying away from the ABC. I’ve missed Fran Kelly’s tearful departure from breakfast radio and its joyful reporting on the pharmaceutical industry’s recent triumphs.
With New South Wales’ citizens freed on Wednesday, I had to know of any plans to reshackle us. An interview Patricia Karvelas conducted with celebrity medic, Mary-Louise McLaws, not only showed me the proposed implements of torture but also plans for their use.
Modelling by University of New South Wales suggests 25,000 of us, daily, will develop new Covid infections by the end of January. Trish invited Mary-Lou to “take us through the modelling”. Sadly, she hadn’t been involved though she works at the uni part-time.
How do I know she works there part-time? I don’t but if you follow this link on the UNSW website you will see that Mary-Lou’s involvement with the World Health Organisation (WHO) leaves her very little time for anything other than ABC interviews.
It seems there is barely a WHO board she hasn’t clambered onto but this one impressed me: “She is the Focal Point for the WHO Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN)“. I’ve never met a Focal Point.
