We are nearly at a standstill folks. McGowan now putting up the border.

Wonít be much left by tomorrow it seems. Perhaps Melbourne and Adelaide to Tasmania and thatís it. Brisbane to Cairns and below. Melbourne to Mildura.

Alan is going to need some more cash fairly soon.

Iíd say itíd be John S at this point in time.....

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

and the bed wetting continues...

masks needed while walking into Suncorp but you can take them off once you sit down 🤦‍♂️

Because you canít catch Covid while sitting down and cheering

Better get the vomit bag because this crap will be repeated for the next few years lol.

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.

Gladys should have gone early on lockdown.

KAPAC 27th Jun 2021 15:50

Well until they make a gluten free , vegan , almond milk vaccine . One that is approved by every holistic medical organisation on the planet oh , better be low calorie also . We just have to get used to closed borders at short notice .

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

Funny how there has been very little influenza in NZ over the past 12 months

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.

Fair comment but in your opinion,what advice should be used?
I am not saying i disagree with you but interested to hear your thoughts.

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.

11 deaths yesterday in the Uk although theyíre a lagging indicator.
start on June they were approx 6,000 cases a day

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.

thatís the vaccine in action and a health care system that has now learnt a lot about COVID👍👍
