In my opinion, we should NOT run Big Camp this Easter for the following reasons:

  1. The Church demographic is decidedly skewed to the older people and this is exactly those most at risk of suffering most under COVID-19.  The mortality rate for over sixies is more than 10 time that for under sixties.

 

  1. The experience in several other places such as Korea and Italy shows that church gatherings are particularly efficient at spreading COVID-19.  It would be most unfortunate that the Victorian SDA Big Camp was blamed for spreading this problem more widely such as happened by similar gatherings of (now) norious sects elsewhere.
