Perhaps I should run for the position of State Daddy of WA then?

Afterall, you can't believe a thing he says, either...:=

I think McGowan will have to open in March.

Well I think you’re off the mark. MM saying just now there is no date, re affirming deaths are out of control referencing QLD. WA is to remain closed without a date in sight. Not even committing to a vaccination number.

He is still running with, he is the lord savior and saving lives.

The muppet WA State Gov are advertising on Melbourne radio (3AW and TripleM) for people to move to WA for a ‘better life’. Can’t even get in the joint and they’re spending tax payers money on rubbish ads! Common sense would say spend some money on your hospitals and reduce ambulance waiting times…

Gee they have moved on in Qld. The ads are on TV.
Maybe there is no TV in Vic?

The so called deaths out of control in QLD is because a shitload of boomers decided not to get vaccinated or decided to resist the booster, I mean you can’t make this shit up these idiots are dying because of their own choices, they deserve to die if they haven’t taken all the precautions so far. WA is now shitting over QLD on vaccination rates, that’s the reason right there. What else can I say? You deny, you die, it’s pretty bloody simple if your an old bastard.

The new reduced isolation and close contact protocols were announced 10 days ago. Back then MM was saying they would only be implemented in a “very high” caseload environment.

There were 9 local cases that day, 22 the next. Today there were 26. Hardly the definition of “very high”, yet here we are.

My point being his language changes when it needs to, often on the day. The announcement of the “very high caseload environment” today was a surprise to me, I thought this step was going to come in a few weeks when cases hit the hundreds and then a reopening weeks later. So they’ve jumped ahead of the timeframe I was thinking they were going to do.

They CHO is doing a review of opening options by 4 weeks from their original delay, which is next week. One could surmise they’re implementing that reopening plan now, and should be opening by March.

Well now Australia is joining the world Feb 21st, WA may as well open up.

If he does decide to open in March (optimistic) WA will have to do a full opening 0-100 because the eastern states have opened international borders it would be pointless for WA to just open domestically with restrictions and closed internationally. MM has messed this up and missed his chance to open “safely” as he calls it.

It would be interesting to see how many of the deaths are of people who didnt get vaccinated but i think your analysis is pretty much spot on. The other thing that intrigues me is the people saying they are not anti vaxxers but are not getting it because its mandated. Theres lots of decisions we make or do in our lives that are based on being told by someone or some authority to do it.

Lost in all this narrative is; what developments are there in actual treatment of the condition.

Regardless of vax no vax…..

An individual gets Covid, is told to isolate at home. No support or treatment advice is actually given apart from, “call an ambulance” if things go south.

Throughout this entire event. The medical profession has been hobbled by politics and bullshit. At what point have doctors been left to treat patients without the fear of breaking some health directive or eco-political agend?

The overall medical outcome In this country is terrible. So many questions……

Australopithecus 8th Feb 2022 04:51

Let me guess…Invermectin fan? Hydrochloroquine?

And WTF is an eco-political agenda?

fl dutchman 8th Feb 2022 11:50

So, Mc Gowan is now issuing the daily Covid cases figures split into 3 categorys. Local cases, Interstate traveler cases and International arrival cases.

He is also listing the death figures from other states in his press briefings.

The highest case figures today are Interstate travelers.

Wonder if he is going to use these figures to further restrict inbound travel. Or something else on his agenda.

That is just flat out wrong. By any measure our health outcomes are some of the best in the world.
Give one example where this is not the case.

Just a thought.......

A 'Particular Problem' in WA at the mo., is that the hospitals are ALL 'understaffed', nurses and docs are run 'off their combined feet', ambulance ramping is 'rampart'.

Due to staff shortages due the Virus and 'isolations'......

So, naturally, the WA Gummint HAS TO cancel 'non urgent' surgery, and 'other treatments' so as to leave 'some beds' available for the inevitable......following the
introduction of people - yes fellow humans - back into WA ('cause they actually live here' / 'used to live here'...) BUT.....they MIGHT bring in the 'dreaded lurgy'.

So, 'we' politicians just 'close the gate'.......ZIMPLES!!! To protect our 'authority AND our jobs' of course.....WHO SAID THAT???

No names......But without an 'effective' opposition....(in WA).....WOT CAN ONE DO??

Even some business leaders are re-locating to the 'East' 'cause they reckon they cannot do business here to an adequate satisfaction.....so they say.

So, the PM opens the gates to INTL arrivals by air, and then what? Does the WA Premier say 'NYET'..??

Interesting times ahead methinks.

Cheers .....

What is all the apparent fear about Omicron anyway in WA? All my family, and many aquantances have had it this year. No real problems. In my case 70+, nearly symptomless, perhaps a sore throat, nothing more than the usual sniffles we get in our normal UK Winter. All clear in 8 days. (Easy to check/test, as the Pharmacies have an ample supply of free Lateral Flow self test kits, and free on line from our NHS)
For the majority of the fully vaccinated, life is almost back to normal. Fortunately the prevelant C19 strain now seems to be more an inconvenience than a debilitating illness.

ChrisJ800 8th Feb 2022 23:15

My wife and I left Tasmania last week and are now in Philippines. No issues as got a PCR covid test at Melb airport and got result in 40min. No testing or quarantining in Philippines since 1st Feb. Everyone is just getting on with things here. We do need to show our International vax printout to get into many shopping malls and banks and wear a mask indoors. There is not the atmosphere of fear that Oz pollys and media keep whipping up.

ecopolitics

1
[ ek-oh-pol-i-tiks, ee-koh- ]SHOW IPA

noun (used with a singular verb)
the study of politics as influenced by economic power.

Apologies for the inappropriate use of the hyphen.
Why the judgement and assumption shags?

Jist pointing an observation out.

I can understand your point of view regarding Covid. The overall outcome for the public is not very good. I am referring to the cancellation of elective (cat 3,2) surgery; the reluctance and inability to either attend or secure appointments with GP’s and specialists for general healthcare.
The real damage is that every other ailment and condition does not enter a lockdown just because of the pandemic.
There is no need for me to give you one case. If you have no one in your circle affected, then I would say you are very lucky.

shitload of boomers decided not to get vaccinated
Of all the "boomers" I know, not one has not been fully vaxxed.

As to the un-vaxxed that I know, all are 40 something who think that either COVID is a conspiracy, the vaxs are experimental, because the Govt is pushing the vaxs or their health (vegan) life style will beat it.

.

I am referring to the cancellation of elective (cat 3,2) surgery;
Again, I don't know of any who have had elective surgery cancelled.
The only cancellation I know of is the closing of the fracture clinic in a large regional hospital.

Yeah. I thought that one must have been after too many Bundys too.
I know only one boomer who is unvaxxed and he's so far into conspiracy theories that he makes Graham Hood look sane.

This has been reported. Contact any major hospital and ask about elective surgery. It is fact.
