Looks like all the other states are closely watching the situation in QLD, at least for now its all "hotspot" location based. The worry with this case the current unknown source.

It’s now been genomically linked to the Princess Alexandra hospital cluster meaning there have been unknown positive/s in the community for about two weeks. 🤦‍♂️

which we all knew, except the dumbasses who voted Anastasia back in for ‘keeping them safe’.


watching QLD from afar was truly astounding.

Victoria now requiring all arrivals from Moreton Bay/ Brisbane since 12 March to get tested and isolate until negative result.

NSW have said only those who have visited hotspots are required to get tested and isolate.

DirectAnywhere 26th Mar 2021 11:27

I can’t understand the QLD CHO telling everyone today to get out there and enjoy the weekend. Even before the genomics were available, she knew that this case was a landscaper, not a quarantine or health worker. It was self evident he had to have caught it from someone else in the community. Today’s Friday. He became symptomatic on Monday, meaning he probably caught it as early as mid last week meaning she had unknown community transmission perhaps 10 days ago.

Given what we know now you would have to expect every state is going to want any arrival from Brisbane since the start of the Princess Alexandra cluster (two weeks plus ago) to isolate and be tested.

You would also have to expect at least WA, TAS and VIC to bring down the shutters in the next day or two. This latest outbreak (I know it’s only one case but there is at least one other out there who was clearly contagious) has got a two week head start on health authorities.

It’s another outbreak, just before the start of school holidays and peak travel period. Again. This has the potential to cause real harm for QLD tourism operators over Easter, and this time it’s without the Jobkeeper security blanket. Hopefully it’s contained.

So St Jacinda has been rowing back on the Aus-NZ travel bubble in the near future... I mean, wtf is going on at the moment. There is as much sanity in the two countries as there is Covid - absolutely none.

Meanwhile this came across my desk this morning:

Am I wrong to say, stop taking photo ops and get on with bloody jabbing people. The two countries have had a great pandemic, but seem to be crawling along in the vaccine programme. To say it isn't a race is just stupid.

Well, just like WA the election has been won. 1 month a go WA would have closed their border already within minutes of hearing QLD news. All those gullible voters thinking these premiers were keeping them "safe" haha its to funny.

Does anyone know the testing figures for Qld last couple of weeks? As far as the health minister telling people to go & enjoy the weekend,well he is obviously as brain dead as their last idiot health minister,think miles was his name.
Queen P may well be about to have to eat her words about keeping queenslanders safe.

For the sake of accuracy when calling out people…..
It was the Chief Medical Officer and the Premier who extolled the population to enjoy the weekend….carefully. The Health minister was largely unheard and unsighted and last time I looked she was a she, not a he.

As for the hypocrisy of what was said now versus pre-election; I'm astounded we aren't in at least a 72 hour lockdown to keep us safe! :rolleyes:

It's because we want to retaliate against the 501 deportations by not allowing any Australians into Godzone at all

Given the justification for the last snap lockdown was a UK strain in the community for a number of days, certainly this example seems to meet those same criteria.

this March UK strain is nowhere near as wicked as the February UK strain that hit Melbourne.. that one moved at an extreme velocity and was a ferociously naughty virus.

Is that the latest 'Newspeak' from the Chairman? Nothing to do with Hotel Quarantine failures, just a "ferociously naughty virus"....wow. :rolleyes:

Great : "A Brisbane man who tested positive to coronavirus held a party for 25 people at his home after being instructed to isolate while he waited his test results."

Just perfect!!! I can hear the borders closing now!

SOPS 27th Mar 2021 10:05

Watching the 5pm news in Perth. The Health Minister has just said.. if you go to QLD, you are taking a big risk. The implication was.. the border could shut at any minute.

SOPS 27th Mar 2021 11:05

Breaking news at 6pm. WA border now shut to QLD. Anyone arriving from 6pm, 14 days HQ at ( I think), own expense.

Nup,

Changed several minutes ago

Now low risk - all arrivals from Qld must isolate for 14 days, whether you were in a hotspot or not

Can probably thank the dude who had the house party whilst waiting for a Covid test result for that one......

Icarus2001 27th Mar 2021 11:22

Not in the government website

Not hotel quarantine?

Do you have a link ?
