The chance of an intelligent rational person (who would be vaccinated) not booking or cancelling a flight to some destinations because of the risk of a future lockdown would be small.

Probably the same chance of an intelligent, rational person refusing a vaccine because they think itís part of a sinister plot.

Basically except for the Netherlands most of the re-introduced restrictions were for the unvaccinated only, so the intelligent, rational person who got the vaccine would be unaffected.

Seems travel warnings have already started with respect to EU and other European countries. How long before Australia joins in.


Israel’s top health official suggested Sunday that COVID-related travel restrictions could be imposed on some European countries, due to rising infection levels in some parts of the continent.

Some of the injuries she suffered included a broken nose, five black eyes and even a cracker rib In her Lifetime biopic 'Surviving Compton' in 2016, Michelíle revealed that there was an incident where Dr Dre once came out and "beat her out of her sleep", after he had been drinking all night.


pretty funny isnít it.


in 1990, he attacked Barnes after he felt that she disrespected him when during the interview she had done with Ice Cube.
In an interview with Rolling Stone in August 1991, Barnes revealed that not only was she slammed into a wall and thrown down a staircase, she was also punched multiple times by the rapper after his men blocked the exit of a bathroom. He had grabbed her hair and punched her in the back of the head. She recounted the incident in a 1991 statement saying that she endured him "slamming her face and right side of her body repeatedly against a wall near the stairwayĒ.

still laughing..
bloody hell. What an idiot. Take your IRL first name, type it in to google, and youíll likely find someone somewhere in history who did something stupid. Are you going to change your name now? No? Youíre a bloody disgrace. How dare you.

give me a Farkin break.

Folks, it was “notice-day” today for VA and QF/JQ - unvaccinated staff were told not to turn up for work this morning.

Some have just found themselves with a lot more spare time to post on PPRUNE.

Just let them run with it, I suggest.

So the SA Government have now advised nobody can enter or exit its state if they have been to any council areas that have a below 80% vaccination rate in Victoria.

The data being used is from 2016 census, so Melbourne City is below the figure as are many others, due to Foreign students who have now left, impacting the data. If you are a resident of SA and plan on dropping into the Melbourne city, you must quarantine for 2 weeks on return.

There goes any demand for SA -> VIC. What a crock of...

Yeah, thatís ****.

The inaccuracy bias of quoted vaccination rates based upon population calculated on pre-covid population data in certain areas has been noted, but perhaps not sufficiently included when it comes to influencing certain government policies,

Give Steve a ring and let him know. Heís a common-sense dude isnít he?

We did a census few months ago, how long does it take for that to be processed? Population stats will shock some.

Now Germany looks like locking down. 14 million unvaccinated. Can’t imagine the effect that will have on bars, restaurants, hotels , transport etc etc. already Munich has cancelled the Christmas markets, a major tourist attraction. Forget Europe for the next few months at least. More will follow.

The anti-vaxxers in germany are a well known problem, it's not a small group there and they even hold small parties to 'spread' the virus. A mate there has witnessed the parties while doing deliveries for the post. Locals there also show no sympathy for them, so this may end up very badly for the antis in those countries. Also be careful of how the news presents Germany and Europe in general, locals i speak to have very different views on what the news says here and the UK for that matter (suprise, suprise, the news exaggerates stuff...)

The UK is set to require a booster shot to avoid Q if travelling.

The Ď letís open up and get back to normal Ď thing is a little more complicated than it appears.

Great.

If they donít want to be locked down just get vaccinated. Itís very simple and wonít cost a cent.

No big deal for Aussies. Boosters are freely available for those who were vaccinated 6+ months ago.

Australia being very highly vaccinated the country will be in the high 80s maybe low 90s eventually. We won’t see domestic borders close again altho WA who are still in lockdown for the foreseeable future. I couldn’t be certain that an international border closure would occur again, that is still a strong possibility.

WA is not in “lock down”, there are still moving around quite freely within the State. They just won’t let anyone else in from the other States. More like “isolation” I think.

Isolation-lockdown what ever you want to call it. Locked down within your own state is a better term. You can leave but can return without 14 days quarantine …… unless you’re a cricketer then it’s 5 because covid only takes 5 days in cricketers.
