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