Having said that I watched the presser, I thought McG was going to throw up a full hard border to everywhere so the fact heís keeping it in proportion is a more welcome sign than 2020, I reckon the situation in all states bar NSW doesnít look too concerning at the moment, Iíd just say itís up to Gladys to get NSWís act together. I would say around a month of disruption out of this.

Also there was an important statement, despite some doom mongers saying this will go on forever, he did say in the presser that once a ďlarge majorityĒ is vaccinated then they can avoid lockdowns/restrictions.

Just need to ignore the anti-vaxxers

This is about to explode, I’m not a doctor but blind Freddy says it’s pretty obvious, Adelaide is the last fortress but they will be infiltrated in the next few days. When every state has outbreaks should they close to each other? This pathetic goal of zero cases is like mopping a floor while muddy shoed kids keep running over it. What is the endgame? What is the exit strategy? Oh yeah that’s Scomo, a completely useless idiot that has no idea, only got the job by stabbing a colleague in the back.

Yes. This Indian variant seems to have spattered wider than a vindaloo squirt.

ScoMo is dropping the ball on so many issues unless he starts to reform immediately by becoming proactive rather than reactive he will loose the next election - and deservedly so unless he gets his shit together.
It's becoming less cynical to suggest his focus is solely on the timing of the next election, mundane issues such as Covid of no pressing importance....apparently.

Itís cold and flu season..lockdowns and masking have achieved no noticeable success in stopping the spread anywhere in the world. The virus spreads indoors mostly..quarantine facilities are leaky everywhere theyíre in use. Every country gets its turn

Here,here.
The nay sayers can put any anti vax spin out there but 1 wonders if they have also refused all medication throughout their life on the basis of being developed too quickly or not knowing side effects.
Every script box you get from the chemist has possible side effects listed but i dont see protests & media hype about them.

Yes she should but as you know many will say the opposite.
Governments are dammed if they do & dammed if they dont.

I wish the gov would stop comparing us to the UK, 18,000 cases yesterday I can’t recall the deaths but well under 100. Those are pretty good odds to me given their size.

The UK also has no idea how many people are in the country which makes calculating herd immunity hard. They originally thought they had 3.9m EU citizens permanently residing in the country only to find its closer to 6m.

Amongst the communities being hit by the delta variant are huge swathes of people not on any database and probably not getting jabbed in case they appear on the immigration radar.

flu is imported. Close international borders, no flu.

Someone above already provided some info around this but in the latest presser it was advised that 30 people attended the West Hoxton birthday party. 24 that were infected were not vaccinated. 5 were health workers who were fully vaccinated and they did not test positive. 1 more is a aged care worker who received their first dose and has also not contracted it.
