Two cases last four days , from two different hotels
Are both so called "medi hotels"

Why haven't they adopted Qld method of transferring anyone who tests positive in HQ to a isolation ward on a hospital?

Don't the CMOs in each State talk to each other or are they gagged?

Canít stand that Tiley guy- heard him sprouting off on the radio a few weeks about his private jet and how he was having trouble getting it cleaned and serviced and stocked with champers for the trip here.
GFY.

The Leaders of Vic gave a late night press conference on Wednesday after first positive

They were very boastful about their expertise in hotel quarantine etc & then began bragging about "helping & advising" the other states
with hotels & apparent expertise in contact tracing

Talking up some new hypothesis about spread through air - some new mechanism of spread that nobody else seems to know about. All just a
mystery & thus nobody can be responsible - same as findings of last years inquiry

Really don't understand why Fed Govt gave them a second chance after last years massive disaster & the whitewash "inquiry"

The camera loving ones seem to have gone to ground today

Yes McLimit, very funny and I'm now in vaccination group 1b. I guess you have to wait until 2022 with the rest of the Fifteen year olds.
Great comeback there old man

You can scream and yell all you like about the unfairness of it all but RPT air travel is dead and its going to remain that way.
Dude, sense of humour gone south? Lighten up.

only too happy to let you iron out any bugs for us. Cheers for taking one for the team

Edit-please note tongue in cheek...everyone just chill a bit.

At least they can do a peer reviewed study on the effects of covid vaccine on senility.

For a start HQ Hotels should not be mixing in with the General Public. Whilst they might be separated by floors, it appears thatís not the issue with this escaping.

Had no idea that was even occurring. I thought it was just logic you isolated these hotels away from the General Public.

It's really instructive reading comments here. Pilots are indeed unique.

Do you see websites where chippies comment on brain surgery? Plumbers arguing quantum physics?

But commercial pilots on Covid 19 epidemiology? Well that's obviously informed comment.....

For a fact it was happening in Perth CBD.

Yeah I know what you mean. Facebook has been strangely quiet when it comes to the pandemic. Also, Iíve never seen brain surgeons discuss carpentry on their social chat sites nor physicists discussing leaky taps on theirs. Weird.

Hardly surprising- neither have I.
Shall we take that as an apocryphal statement?How many surgeon and physicist chat sites do you actually read as a matter of interest??!!

Well you’re not a professional pilot? WTF are you doing on here then?

Sunfish pretends he knows how to run an airline and is an IR expert, apparently. Ohh and he was quite **** at building a home build once. At least thatís what he sounds like, with all his worries about CASA and his home build.

Facebook / Reddit are full of people from all walks of life / vocations discussing the same things you read here. This site is in no way unique.

Whether the discussion is informed / educated etc is a different argument.

Morno

The biggest fool can say the Sun is shining but that doesn't make it dark outside.
Yes, I know very little about aviation having only worked for one airline and one defence/aerospace company apart from I.T, Government and the commercialization industry including sitting on the Board of a medical start up.

I received a private briefing from two key Covid investigators from the Peter Doherty Institute in March last year, the contents of which I shared on Pprune at the time which proved substantially correct.

The response I received then from one or two of your colleagues was exactly the same as yours.

If you continue to reject advice out of hand, no matter, or rather because of, the source, then you and your industry deserve your fate.

I still get tidbits, but I rarely share them.

HQ again in ML, women testing positive on day 16 this afternoon 2 days after leaving HQ same scenario as NSW on Sunday.

Have all the virologist got it wrong from the beginning and the incubation period is longer than 14 days or they’re getting infected whilst in HQ due to failures in the system not addressed yet!

Indeed....seems more and more likely that airbourne transmission is happening inside the HQ system....

How many times does the system need to leak before its replaced.....Howard Springs type set up is the way to go....Outdoor, individual cabin set up.

At what point are "they" going to say "Enough is Enough!"?? It's got out of HQ pretty much everywhere in Oz, NZ and even The Democratic Peoples Republic of Westralia, both during the 14-day period, and after.

I mean, if a pilot were to land gear up, they learn from it and odds are they don't bloody do it again, do they? How many more times is it going to get out, resulting in border closures, travel restrictions, missed funerals & cancelled weddings?
