These numbers are staggering. 4.88 billion doses administered. 35 million doses a day worldwide. Should have those trial results shortly.

A quite effective treatment. Just approved in the uk. I wonder how long it will take us to approve it. Don’t worry, there’s no hurry or anything. Take your time. Only been used in the US for the last nine months. Might be handy to have now in the middle of the Indian variant with cases and hospitalisations spiralling .

WTF is wrong with our media? This should be a positive story. Yes, case numbers in Israel have spiked significantly but guess what? Deaths are right down compared to ďa non-vaccinated Israeli populationĒ Itís buried deep within the story.

Australia has fck all hope with ABC spreading fear and continuing to focus on case numbers. I too wish we could eliminate COVID, we thought we could, Iím glad we gave it a go, but itís not going to happen. Accept it Australia.

From the article:
The death rate is also much lower, despite the surging cases.
Thats all you need to know.

I listen to ABC radio, and Iím growing tired of presenters who are paid by the government telling me how ďweíre all in this togetherĒ.

832 for NSW today. 825 local plus 7 from overseas. Good effort Gladys. Now is the time to bunker down you said yesterday. At the start of week 9. Is that what the health advice said. Not at the start of week 1 or the start of week 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 or 7 or the start of week 8. No it said wait until the state liberals start making plans to replace you and make it known they are doing so. So week 9 it is. But she is acting only on the health advice. Strange how the chief health officer didn’t give a straight answer when asked if she had given the premier advice to go harder earlier. Strange how the health minister said the health advice is not going to be released when the question was asked at one of the press conferences. It was asked after the chief health officer was asked her question to which she gave a politicians non answer.

but they are acting only on the health advice and don’t you forget it.

Give it a rest would you. They canít deal with the outbreak by looking in the rear view mirror. If people arenít compliant, thatís not the governmentís fault, is it? This constant sniping and heckling of the government(s) is just wasting bandwidth.

WA came last in the heat and didn't even make the final. NSW and VIC definitely in the best lanes.

maybe you should read what I said more carefully. Then realise what is actually driving their actions. Then realise they need to be held to account.

as for the relaxation of restrictions. Well there are three thresholds. 6,000,000 vaccines, 70% vaccinated, 80% vaccinated. We are currently at about 5.7 million vaccines and will get to 6 million by Monday. Has anyone seen a definitive official list of what will be relaxed. Or for the 70% or 80% marks. Why havenít they been released, at week 9 of this shambles.

And have you noticed that she has deliberately got others to speak at the press conferences so she has less time to be questioned.

I did. Sounds like a whinge. Unless
Good effort Gladys
was meant to be genuine praise.

Just list for us your qualifications for dealing with pandemics again?

Look, Iím all for accountability etc but I am neither qualified nor in a position to make that assessment. I doubt you are. Is Swedenís the right approach? Is New Zealandís? How about we have less of the histrionics, sit on our hands like good pilots, and see how this pans out before calling for heads? There is very little we can do on this bulletin board about it anyway.

And its being held in a smaller room so they fit in less reporters and there for less questions and assuming only the tame ones get invited

I gave up listening to the pressers about 1023 iterations ago. Thereís only so many ways to say the same thing, and journos seem to be just looking for words to hang the politicians on. Itís very Ďdepressingí.

"Can I just say, look, can I just say for one more time, that we are following the health advice, please! please! please! stay home, the health advice says this is beatable. Can I just say please! please! please! we are all in this together."
