These are facts,you are just assuming the contact tracing system is stuffed because it suits your political agenda.
How stuffed is scomos vaccination system,he prefers to make himself look like the fool he is with embarrasing photo opportunities.

from the March lockdown

Victoria’s highly touted new digitised contact-tracing system has been hindered by defects since it went live in January, with flaws so serious that tracers stopped calling close contacts during a crucial period just days before the state went into lockdown last month.

A Health Department source told The Sunday Age contact tracing calls to close contacts had to be paused for hours on February 8 after it was discovered tracers had been given the wrong list and were calling people linked to a cluster at a Thai restaurant in Black Rock in January, rather than those potentially exposed to coronavirus cases in active outbreaks.

numerous reports this morning of stuff ups. But keep deflecting to Scomo to suit your political agenda. How many did Dan kill.. over 800 wasn’t it.

as for the selfish public. It is up to the state government to enforce QR codes and mask wearing etc.

oh, you missed the entire enquiry did you, you know where nobody was responsible. Nobody received those emails even though they actually did. Refusing federal help, or did they. Wasn’t me or him or her…. Lies upon lies by Andrews and others. …

don’t try and play cute

How about we all get vaccinated and open up, and those that are scared little bunny wabbits give up work and lock themselves away?
Really? Did you get your kindy kid to write that for you? Actually no, they would have been a bit better at understanding.

Where did I say banning any of those things or mention elimination? They are all risked manged just like the Covid19 response is.

But I'm not being fair. I should wait until your children are home to help you with your response.

Mate, I donít live in Victoria, and even if I did I wouldnít be voting for Andrews. Maintain the rage, though: youíre doing a cracking job.

Facts??

How many inquiries have found the Victorian contact tracing system to be inadequate?

How many inquiries have found the Victorian hotel quarantine system inadequate?

QR codeís? Why has it taken Victoria 6 months longer than NSW to implement this?

If you want to talk about the facts, at least acknowledge the massive weaknesses reported in the Victorian Governments OWN reports!! Thatís not a ďpolitical agendaĒ.

While we are on that topic, every single state has had an outbreak from hotel quarantine. Itís only Victoria that has failed the follow up contact tracing.

Scomo also has a lot to answer for with the slow vaccine rollout. The way itís setup is to complicated and hard to access.

My son went to use a QR code at a place in Victoria yesterday and it was an ineligible version (non gov version) and wouldnít let him do it. The business sort just shrugged it off and didnít assist.

Been in TAS and SA in the last few weeks. Both have respectable contact tracing systems. You cant get out of the arrival hall in Hobart without "checking in", SA requires pre approval from Police and a border check. Both are serious about QR codes everywhere to the point where retailers wont serve you unless you have checked in.

Victoria? La! La! La! No border checks and a broken and unenforced QR system. Dan Andrews is an idiot.

Suggestion now is that seven days won't be enough.

Is this not indicating that quarantines and travel restrictions donít actually work and only slows it down? Designing it to buy time to get people vaccinated and get an adequate surveillance system in place.

because I hope you arenít talking about AstraZeneca. If so better have a stern word to the chook in Qld. She wants the Pfizer. So you canít blame the general populace if our dear leaders, well at least one and her health chief arenít prepared to get it.

Concept? No. But getting the vaccination if you want it? That appears to be the hard part...But who care's, the politicians still get their 15% superannuation & pensions and can work from home...

Correct. They donít understand science nor statistics. Vaccination IS the only way out. Otherwise you are just pissing into the wind. Sorry Ladies.

While i completely agree, news out of the UK shows 1 in 10 in hospital with covid have been fully vaccinated. "The data that we have is that in the hotspot areas around one in 10 of those in hospital are people who have had both jabs. "The fact that 90% are people who have not yet been double vaccinated gives us a high degree of confidence that the vaccine is highly effective but it also shows - the fact there's 10% who have been double vaccinated - that it isn't 100% effective."
We will need to accept a number of deaths, while this will be no different to other diseases it will be a difficult sell for the government when unlike the rest of the world we are not used to it. Don't expect to open the border until after the election.
