Has the COVIDSafe app been worth it?
"So it's been just over a month since the federal government released the COVID SAIF APP which is all about digital contact. Tracing at the time it was sold as a vital tool to reopen the Stralia economy to get things moving again. He is the prime minister. Scott Morrison said in early. May there are currently over three and a half million downloads and registrations of the COVID SAFE APP and there needs to be millions more. How has the APP being used since then? Has it been the key to get things moving ours? Has it been forgotten about well today? We got reported aerial. Bogle Vac to help answer those questions and many more. So I t and Hyneman. So what's going on with the APP? These days it was salt is a vital pot to get us out of look down but We haven't really heard much about in the last waco so that's right so back. In late April wind APP launched. The government was using really strong language around it. As you've discussed describing it as sunscreen tying really explicitly to the lifting of lockdown restrictions. It's like not putting on Sunscreen to go out into the blazing Sun. We need that too so we can open up the economy. And that's what's so important. So if you haven't downloaded the APP yet downloaded that rhetoric has kind of died off lightly and in fact we only know of one instant so far with APP has been used as part of the contact tracing process. That's in Victoria. Where it was used to identify one person who contact tracing had not picked up so we don't really know too much yet about the APP. Success do we know much about numbers downloads? But then also there was talk early on especially that perhaps it was hard to use it correctly. Do We know about downloads? Also usage figures. It's a good question so the government said as of this week more than six million. Australians have downloaded the APP. But that's pretty different number to those who are still using it. I mean some of that six million. They may have deleted the APP. What we really want to know is daily active users. How many people have the APP on their phone? Using it correctly with Bluetooth turned on all those things that make it work and those are the kinds of numbers. The government has repeatedly said it caught. Shame doesn't have access to or is really not measuring so we don't really know the exact number of Australians. You have quite a bit safe operating correctly on the fines today. So the digital transformation needed say they're responsible for the APP. There's a whole series of controversies around. Its use on the IPHONE. I've got an IPHONE and I keep on getting messages implying that it's not on when it is on just in the background. What'S THE STORY WITH? Iphones versus androids and the functionality. Well this was an issue early on so when the APP launch the government insisted that it worked perfectly a lot of people who had some technical expertise. This space. Question this from the start so as you might remember. Singapore has its own contact tracing APP and we all knew that Abbott. It had problems with performance on iphone and we were wondering has strategy fixed this problem. How they got around this it turns out they hadn't so it did emerge as weeks passed since the APP launch. The APP had reliability problems on iphone. So if the APP wasn't full grounded a visible on the screen and with the Foreign Arpan. It was not always reliably communicating those in crafted dazed funds with the APP or collecting them. So the government has continually updated the APP and it looks like they may have fixed some of these iphone issues but we still hearing reports of people running into problems when they using other Bluetooth Devices Sabo headphones so we really still need a bit more clarity. I think about just when the is performing as it should and on iphone even if some of those obtaining problems have now been fixed.

Is Sweden right in its handling of COVID-19?
"When most of Europe went into strict lockdown in much Sweden but the trend social distancing was recommended and large gatherings were banned but restaurants workplaces and junior schools and boarders. I stayed open in pursuit of what some people call herd immunity strategy. So how's it going? And what listens are there for Australia? Will Swedish Intellectual Johan? Norberg is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and he's author of progress ten reasons to look forward to the future Johan welcome back to between the lines. Thank you great to be back now this week. The Australian Treasury Josh Freudenberg was asked if we would follow the Swedish example as we into the next stage of the vars response and he ruled it out and he said quote. Sweden has forty percent of Australia's population but Sydney tons the death right. The numbers speak for themselves. That's Josh Freudenberg. Our Prime Minister Scott Morrison waiting. He called Sweden's approach a death sentence. Johan what do you think well? I have to admit that compared to Australia. Sweden does not look like a success but in fact nothing looks like a success. Compared to Australia right now except for possibly New Zealand is in the same vicinity but every European country has suffered much much worse whether they've had entered lockdowns or more of a Swedish line and I think that's partly because we got the transmission Into our population at earlier in a more massive stage. It's more difficult to when we have all these land borders next to countries with millions and millions of people and of infected so. I don't think the comparison with Australia is. Is that relevant apart? From the fact that you also have to deal with it longtime when you get out of the lockdowns and when you begin to approach more of an open world again with will global travel then at least the World Health Organization says that Sweden might be a model to look to in any case and and and despite everything so far Sweden has been an outlier when it comes to policy but not when it comes to the outcomes sweetness somewhere in the middle when it comes to European states. Okay no matter how you add the numbers up. Sweden has more deaths than your Nordic neighbours. What do you expect to see in those countries as as Tonga's on that's true so far it looks worse in Sweden? But why is that well? The assumption from Swedish L. Authorities. Is that our neighbors. They have merely postponed cases and deaths. They have not avoided them. They went into lockdown. Which means that in the short run. It looks good but once they get out of it and they're starting to get out of it now. The the lockdowns on the shutdowns. They're bound to see a second wave of infections and deaths the thing to ask when you look at the Swedish model is at. Did we avoid to overwhelm our healthcare system Did those who suffer and died from covy. Nineteen would they have died in any case if they got this disease six months later or twelve months later? So did we avoid that kind of healthcare breakdown and it seems like we did that all the time. The intensive care units have had an excess capacities. Weeden by around twenty percent. So far so it seems like They they would have died from the disease whenever we got the disease into our population. And what I expect from our neighbors. Unfortunately that without a vaccine and that might be a year away and could take much longer. They won't be able to avoid it in the long run and they will suffer those consequences once they get out of lockdown.

On Twitter, powered by more than twenty seven hundred journalists and analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries in San Francisco, I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg. Kathleen, Ed, thanks so much. We are going back to our conversation with Isaac pool. He's in Hong Kong chief investment officer of Oriana financial services. Is it is it too parochial for me to say, gee, government shutdown? If it's a verdict. What does that mean for markets in Asia? Does it mean that much at all? Yeah. No, it's it's a relevant point still. I think we this. There's a lot of uncertainty globally at the moment. And what's going on in the US is very important for the US economy. But that means that it's very important for the rest of the world as well and any Asia, and we we continue to be exposed to the US through trade where exposed with through market Beata. And so we we watch it very very closely at the moment, I think markets have moved to sort of expect that there won't be a further shutdown. And that's that looks like that will that will happen, and that's going to be fairly positive. We still to go back to the issue of trade for a moment. I'm wondering whether we have adequate visibility on the extent to which the trade war with the US and China's actually impacted the Chinese economy, if I'm a US multinational, let's say, and let's say the the framework idea gets done by the end of the month. But we still have a long way to go to hammer out the details. I don't want my. Supply chain to be exposed to these types of machinations. Don't I or have I already made decisions that may not as of yet shown up in the in the Chinese data. Yeah. It's a good point. I mean in as a rule Chinese data a difficult to interpret, they're it's not always very clear, obviously, it comes out with a lag. And and that does make investment decisions into China difficult from an external parties point of view. I think the reality is that whether we get a framework agreed by the end of this month or not whether we have a full fledged trade deal agreed by the end of this year. They'll still be uncertainty around how that impact crater supply chains. And I think a lot of companies are already starting to look elsewhere to see have better in terms of extending this supply chains a widening their supply chains around the Asian region. So. Go from all this too. You're trading positions your investment positions. Do you buy Chinese stocks? Do you sell them? Do you like emerging markets or don't you? Do you stay away from bonds or do you buy them? Yeah. I I think that what we saw during two thousand eighteen was really sharp and sudden widening and risk premia, particularly in merging markets, China and an insurance specifically in Q four period that push valuations sharply lower to a point where we think they became relatively attractive, actually. And and there are from valuation perspective. Good offense Unity's out there at the moment from a fundamental perspective. We actually don't think a real lot is changed in the Chinese economic outlook. We know it's been slowing structurally. It's been doing that for a long time. There's a cyclical slowdown underway. But at the same time a lot of willingness and ability to stimulate, so we think that all of that points towards opportunities still seen a pretty good rally. So far this year. We think that this further to go in two thousand eighteen from from where we are. Now, we've been talking a lot about the dollar strength in the last week. Given the fact that the fed has gone into this. Mode of being patient. But on a relative basis, I guess the US is still strong relative to a lot of the weakness. We're seeing globally therefore, the dollar has remained strong. Is this going to change anytime soon? Do you think or does the dollar remained king dollar for a while longer? Very quickly. Yeah. I think I think that from where we are. Now, the dollar is very strong. It's likely to stay in Philly elevated band, I would say over the don't think we'll see a very large sell off for the reasons that you mentioned US economies strong flows are in their people thinking down the track that what if there is a recession. So we'll still see some safe-haven flows.

Journalists was ordered out of the parliament building for the crime of wearing a sleeveless top. That is by no means the most ridiculous thing to have happened this year in camera all this week.

And yes, we are supposed to be a Westminster style democracy stray Lear even has compulsory voting that is when own race drivers as opposed to our elected representatives, actually get to do it. But the leadership chaining government has become so chronic over here, there's not even a decent comeback to the inimitable jokes from democracies where I have leaders who actually managed to clock up a couple of days. You know, I've had phone calls that lasts longer than your prime minister ships. They say incredulous phone calls migraines ice creams, you can pretty much insert your own image, the joke, writes, it self what doesn't seem to right itself is the way we. Practice out politics inustrial in democracy in which we go to the polls every three years or so and elected party or parties, togetherness, preferably in majority and even more preferably under the leadership if someone we've had a chance to size up instead over the past decade outdraw ministers have more often being dispatched by colleagues than the voters are politicians driven by and Bishen factional muscle flexing or blind panic to see sting thinking that cutting down yet.

And you know the person who must fascinated me about science was captain cook. You, Mark. Why tapping took well, yes. He was an amazing Guida and he's voyages discoveries allege injury. But when you read Cook's journals and you read about him, you discovered that he was actually a scientist, and that's what he should be remembered for more than anything else. An enquiring mind, a mind that wanted to pass on that knowledge, a mind that wanted to explore the boundaries. I don't know if you know this, but James t Kirk from Star Trek. Was actually is not kidding, was modelled on James Cook as scientists you'd go where we haven't been before you dare to imagine the things that others haven't now it's true. I actually do have a science degree. It's true. What I hate to disappoint you is an applied science. Social sciences is an economic geography, but that's it. The is on is what I used to put on the card many, many years ago. And I've always felt like I should have changed it to something else because I never really thought of it in the same way as those of you do here, but I was passionate and I was interested and I did believe, and I did wanna learn, and I did want to know the prime minister, Scott Morrison skirmish did not wear a fluoro- jacket or white coat, but he wasn't character as you heard with that boffin business and was pleased to greet.

Yes, spent a one gong high school, and that was probably the best thing that happened to me at that point because it was a selective high school. And I think essentially a good. System of education where I suddenly learned lots of things that I hadn't even thought about science. Okay. Yes, it was my introduction to signs, physics was particularly well taught. It was a lot of experiments. It was one class where the girls so you could actually concentrate on the physics. Did you find the goals distracting then how do you expect me on? So. Enjoy their company. And then when you decide to get to the university of New South Wales surveying was your course how come my headmaster didn't have much hope for my future.
