I did laugh at this...

Australian government announced flights from South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Eswatini, and Mozambique are banned...
How many is that then?

It’s not a massive leap from listing countries to a return to fortress Australia
Sadly you may be correct. If so how about we are allowed to leave this time?

I repeat. I can’t see WA opening its borders anytime soon.


Arrivals from South Australia 30 minutes ago (4.30pm) have been told they have to do 14 days Q, or return to SA.

And the borders are starting to come down again for international arrivals.

NSW is ordering All travellers who have been in any other overseas country during the 14 day period before their arrival in NSW must travel directly to their place of residence or accommodation and isolate for 72 hours, pending further health advice;

Oh FFS grow up. First of all a border is either open or closed. It is not Schrodingers cat! Your post shows that the border is in fact OPEN with the condition you go home for three days.

As of this moment yes. But who really can not see this is likely going to get much worse in the coming weeks. The border can remain as “open” as you want to believe it to be, but this is going to kill international travel numbers before it even really kicks off again so will have a similar effect as being shut.

Can’t believe how quickly some of you lot believe the media hype! Impressive words like ‘monstrous’ mutation and so on! Wow. Get back under your rocks and take cover!!! And be careful the sky doesn’t fall on your head too!

Information out of SA states that no one has yet been hospitalized with this ‘scary variant’. Im sure some will be but ffs, life has to go on now! You cannot keep stopping and restarting life!!!

2 cases in NSW just announced. Let’s see how the states react during the day. WA will make a new level of “stay the F away” category above the very high risk. QLD will be interesting they love nothing more than to close off to NSW id think they might delay their opening now.

Although you might be right about the reactions of various premiers for interstate border restrictions the two COVID-19 cases that arrived in NSW are not yet confirmed as the Omicron strain (not sure if you were actually implying that they were).

More importantly, I want to know why the WHO skipped a couple of letters of the Greek alphabet and went for Omicron. Seeing as the letter before that is “Xi”, I wonder if there was a quick phone call from Beijing saying it wouldn’t be a good idea to call it that.

NSW - 14 days isolation for all flight crew, 3 days for pax pending advice. Joke. Flight crew have just been cut off from their families and society again.

52 States in North America and I’m trying to research each states entry requirements. Can only find a single statement on quarantine requirements on arrival ? Is Australia more fractured and divided across state lines than the USA ?

Pharmaceutical companies are looking into the new varient to see if vaccines need to be tweeked, most case so far are of unvaccinated people so the present vaccine is at least partially effective.

COVID precautions are already in place, as are large scale vaccination programs. As we're coming upon to nearly a year since people started getting vaccinated, another shot or at least a booster jab is going to be needed for most people in 2022 anyway.

Testing companies are charging Medicare around $120 per Covid test (70,000+ tests per day in VIC alone). Pfizer vaccine cost around $10 a pop. Perhaps we should all stop getting tested and direct the money to vaccinating the poorer less developed countries thus reducing the chance of virus mutations in the future.

Already being done Fiji owes its record vaccination uptake to the AZ that Australians shunned. Many other nations are receiving a lot of foreign aid in vaccination, money wont fix it, just more production of vaccine, which is at limits. You also have to get the locals to take the japb as well, the US is not stagnating at 50-60% vaccination due to lack of vaccine, it just suffers from high levels of stupid. King stupid made a comeback today as well blaming Biden for the slow vaccination rate of the country, when he 'leads' the majority of those that refuse to take it....

43,

“ King stupid made a comeback today as well blaming Biden for the slow vaccination rate of the country, when he 'leads' the majority of those that refuse to take it.... “

you sure about that, I thought a study of who were actually holding off proved to be the opposite

Unbelievable. One day they’re wearing brightly-coloured wigs and driving tiny cars around inside a big tent, next day they’re writing health directives.
God help us.
