I’d say you even got a better outlook with Covid than with Rex.

Will be interesting to see what the comments are going to be like this time next year when lockdown No 15 is being extended by the Vict lunatic! This lunacy will never end!

Doesnt look like investors are believing Boris's hype....global sell off in markets around the world...biggest sell off is in travel stocks, IAG was the biggest decline on the FTSE 100

Stock markets these days go up and down like yo yos. The Dow can be 1000 down one day and up 1200 the next. When we see a trend and not spikes you can start worrying.

I think most of us do understand. See post #6067 if you don’t believe me…

“Yet another Australian media scare mongering campaign almost purely focussing on case numbers. I don’t think now is the time to let COVID run its course in Aus with our currently pitiful vaccination stats but I certainly think the UK is justified in its actions.”

If you want to get mad at someone, divert your hatred towards the PM. We're in this feedback loop because of him.

And all he does is post figures that try to make his dismal failure look like a success. Guess thats what marketing people do,suck you in by throwing any facts & figures around to actually distract from the real facts.

Is it a race yet?

Hope the ink isnt dry on the budget figures

Despite 87.9% of their adult population having had their first dose and 68.3% having had their second dose!

UUmmm....What's that about an 'actual zero (0)' on May 18??

Pretty sure that zero on that date (or around it) was deaths. First zero death day since the start of the pandemic rings a bell.

We are in this "feedback loop" because all of our various government's 'leaders' - including the PM - are acting in an adversarial, politically driven manner designed to impact on the political landscape, not in the best interests of the whole Australian population. One would hope that when this pandemic is less of a hourly (minutely if there were such a word) news bite, a decision will be made by a very brave politician or two, to ensure that we react as a nation not a conglomerate of States, to deal with any future similar event.

I doubt however, there will ever be a politician with the guts to do such a thing……...

West Australians in South Australia are being told to come home now.. ASAP. I think a border closure is about to happen.

Yep, you're right. Sounds like WingNut has crossed threads...

There's still a couple of jurisdictions McGowan hasn't locked out yet, but I've no doubt he'll get there. It'd be amusing if it wasn't so disgraceful that a NZ citizen from Auckland can freely travel to WA, but an Australian citizen in Armidale cannot. Neither have had any Covid cases in their area, but I guess that's what "health advice" is...Locking out 78% of the Australian people from one of their own states, and requiring another 8.5% to quarantine when they get there. I guess the remaining 3% from Tasmania and the Territory can keep WA's interstate tourism industry going.

This is becoming crazier by the day. The world is opening up and we are still in this lockdown cycle.

I can’t see this way of life going away until at least December 31.

I would expect rolling Sydney leaks across August and September.

https://www.healthline.com/health-ne...-delta-variant

a bit of a comparison.
New Zealand only contracted Pfizer and Israeli data is suggesting that its efficacy drops off pretty quickly against delta. Fully vaccinated people are being hospitalised now and Pfizer is talking about boosters..I got a bad feeling about this

i read dropping to 60% after only 6 months....not good

Astra Zeneca ppl the drug of choice

That one has a an efficacy of only 63% to begin with, would be interesting to see how effective that is after 6 months if Pfizer is down to 60%.
