3 day lockdown starting midnight.

it makes no sense. “Health Advise” says you can’t go to the footy tomorrow but you CAN go to the basketball tonight.

He needs to explain why this hotel is being used & also how this guy got covid,hes been very quick in the past to tell us all how good he is so why stop now.
Also considering the number of returned travellers testing positive recently,why arent they put in quarantine & tested before being allowed to travel here.
Scomo is so p... weak.

yep. Approx 6-8 weeks, maybe 10-12 if transportation is over a long distance, if you contracted more than one builder because they’re limited by capacity usually. They’d have to be purely focused on only that project for that length of time. (All According to top of the head calculations by a builder mate.)

Though that’s not accounting for Australian exceptionalism and government inefficiencies...

Overall cost to do one of Howard springs size probably less to the economy than a single 3 day lockdown for a capital city.

Scomo is so p... weak.
Piss weak vaccine roll-out
Piss weak leadership
Why did the feds not take control of hotel quarantine from the start? Scomo may as well have been in Hawaii for the last 12 months.

According to the Government Health Web site.. all people travelling to Australia MUST show proof of a negative test at check in. Seems something is going very wrong or there a lot of fake test results about!!

There is already another private facility in Darwin where the marines quarantined.

To ramp up and build more? Demountable style, not long. There are hundreds ready to go and be wired, plumbed, etc.

The issue is the staff to run the centers, medical, blah blah blah.

Avalalon - Ok Mr Fox build it and they will come (and gov $).
Wellcamp - Ok Mr Wagner build it and they will come (and gov $).

Hang on the above makes wayyyyyyyy to much sense!

Oh and it doesn’t help the hotels... then again nor does lockdowns, or hang on do the gov pay upfront?

100% something wrong,how can we get positive tests in hotel quarantine every day if they all tested negative before departure.
All this government does is talk talk talk,they are morons if they cant see whats happening each & every day & putting us all at risk with their incompetence.

There is no issue to staff quarantine centres, pay a good rate and they will come. Anyway all the quarantine centres Australia had until the 1970’s were all on the outskirts of major cities not in the middle of nowhere. There needed to be a way to get patients to hospitals quickly if their conditions deteriorated. This is actually getting beyond a joke, the federal health gurus still refuse to admit that this is an aerosol borne transmittable virus, that’s just laughable, the events of the last week just prove this incompetence. Combined with a cluster of a vaccine rollout this could very badly blow up in our face and put us back to 1 year ago,, but worse!

I don’t believe in banning people from India but let’s mitigate it, high risk returnees should NEVER be allowed to quarantine in a flawed hotel quarantine system, they should go to Howard Springs or other Cabin style quarantine if it ever gets built.

Im just frustrated that we keep making the same mistakes again and again when there were experts advising Hotel Quarantine is a SHORT term solution in April last year.....

Really? Some don’t understand you can test negative before you get on the plane and then subsequently develop Covid. There are a lot of unknowns in this but that ain’t one of them.

So a city of two million people is “locked down” because one person tested positive for a virus with a 98% survival rate?
When will this madness end? Why are we accepting this?
When did flatten the curve became complete elimination?

Excellent question.

Remind me to stop travelling to these idiotic dictator-controlled states (WA, VIC, QLD).
Getting sick of being caught up in stupid lockdowns.
Can we just let Gladys (and any other adults if there are any) run the show?

Youd think so but Sandgropers have a unique perspective to other Australian because they’re are large deposits of minerals in WA which they believe they own.

Why don’t the Wagner’s and a couple of other deep pocketed citizens get together and build a quarantine facility anyway. You know for the good of the country. Packer should pitch in. He needs some good publicity. Gerry Harvey could donate what he received from jobkeeper. Twiggy? The leadership vacuum is no longer a joke so get on with it. I’ll pitch in with some free labour. FFS would someone make decision.

Every time that there is a release from a quarantine hotel, it seems that there are big gaps in the explanations given.
When specifics are omitted you can't hep but wonder whether it isn't deliberate obfuscation.

For instance, this person entered Australia from Shanghai and after release from quarantine visited the UWA campus on several occasions before departing for Melbourne.
No other details were given which lead to a rumour circulating around that he was neither an Australian citizen nor resident.
The question of whether that is true or not could have been countered by simply including in the press releases that he was a "returning Australian resident", but it wasn't.
Why not?

Similarly, it has been announced that of the other 24 people on the same floor as the infected person, five have already left the country.
What the heck is that about? People are now flying into Australia to spend a little relaxation time in quarantine and then flying out again?

C'mon people, we don't want or need to start a racial backlash, but a few more details might make the explanation a lot easier to swallow.
Or not.
