Bottom line is people need to stop watching the mainstream misledia and do their own research. Yeah it takes time and effort to do this but you people need to wake up or you'll be in a state of perpetual lockdowns and restrictions.

Why is it, that all these outbreaks occur just before holidays! even tho NSW has 2 community cases over two day well below the fed hot spot definition.

One state about to open borders, as another is about to close. There goes half my roster again. I have basically budgeted at half salary for the next year with all these rolling border restrictions.
Hopefully now a daily test becomes mandatory for these drivers & anyone else out there who is seen as being in a high risk scenario.
Not sure if this guy was required to test & just didnt bother🤔

With all of the doom and angst being shown in this thread I thought a spot of humour might come in handy. It does actually relate to borders opening and a landing by the Captain hence it being here.

So the VIC couple who drove via NSW to QLD have been fined $4k each by QLD police.....hardly much of a deterrent. I hope NSW Police also fine then, i wont hold my breath.

There are many valid sentiments on this thread.

I guess the question has to be asked, what is the real goal of our " leaders ".

The well being of the nation or political survival?

Actions ALWAYS speak louder than words. Douglas MacArthur comes to mind unfortunately.

Look after yourselves.

Now, the businesses affected should be given their details and commence Civil proceedings. That should be where the deterrent kicks in!

From last year. Some community service.

I'm guessing here, but the women in the article above seemed to be just out to have some fun whereas the current couple seemed to be leaving Victoria for good. Does anyone know their circumstances? Perhaps they were business owners who could not make ends meet caused by how many months of lockdowns. Maybe they were just looking for a party. Not saying they did the right thing, but I can certainly understand people trying to escape.

It seems a lot of people don't want to be in Victoria.

A lot of replies in this thread show the high level of fear & hysteria that exists out in the community, something the grubby Govt just love!

Off topic, how is there still 40,000 people registered with DFAT to come back to Australia that seem stuck over seas. Latest ASX release from SY airport has 88,000 international passengers passing through International, NZ bubble would be no where near that capacity.

“88,000 international passengers passed through Sydney Airport in May 2021, more than 93% down on the corresponding period in 2019. The month-on-month improvement April to May 2021 was driven by ongoing quarantine-free Trans-Tasman travel”.

Because people keep leaving Australia for weddings in Mumbai, cricket and other deferrable events whilst the remainder of us do the righty...

What else should she be doing? Lock 3/4 of Sydney up for a month! Response is proportionate to whatís happening.

The exposure sites are quite extensive. The contact tracing is usually NSW's saving grace, but let's see what happens.

Well I’m glad our premier isn’t carrying on like a spastic like the majority of the others. Measured calculated response that will be tightened and loosen as needed. There is no pandemic in Australia

The risk here is probably different compared to previous outbreaks as the Delta is ripping across the UK doubling cases every 10 days, as they re commence the upward trend on the graphs again.

If people walk past each other in stores and pickup the Delta which is what went on in Myer here, then it will be seeding all over the city. We wonít really know for another week or two.

Masks indoors will prevent much of that. Delta is a prick of thing to contain once seeding commences.

Yes cases are on the up in the UK. But look at these two graphs showing cases vs deaths. There might be a slight lag that hasnít been captured yet but the vaccine is doing its thing. Case numbers shouldnít be used as a metric for lockdowns in a vaccinated society.

And here we go again folks.

WA requires all NSW arrivals to quarantine until negative test results.

Effective immediately.
