    Australian (Open) Tennis and COVID-19

    Oh. My. Lord. Cannot one differentiate the risk of a) taking entitled, over-paid tennis players from COVID hot spots like Europe and USA, who have a track record of reckless COVID behaviour both before and after arrival, with b) talking well behaved, poorly paid ( ie with everything to lose)...

    The GP and nurse will put together the plan. Mine have been pretty pro forma. Fill in the lurgies, and the specialists you have nominated, and out comes the plan. I never look at it from one year to the next,

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I’m sorry that I can’t post the text of what’s being reported, but I think you are misunderstanding what’s going to happen. Number of flights is a bit redundant. Over the next six months, Tasmania, instead of taking up to 330 repatriation people, from all around the world, including virus...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    There has already been two repatriation flights, so that probably leaves the 330 figure reported.

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    We are we taking seasonal workers pretty soon I think, but no international repatriation arrivals for the foreseeable future. Tasmania’s repatriation quota was 330. Can post news quotes when I’m back on desktop.

    1500 seasonal workers over the first half of this year. From The v Australian app on my phone which I can’t easily quote from

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    A great deal announced between Tasmania and Victorian governments today. Victoria will take Tasmania‘s share of international arrivals and Tasmania will take and quarantine seasonal workers who will then go onto Victoria and work. It’s especially good for Tasmania as Victoria will take all the...

    It’s only annoying when you attempt to correct something which isn’t wrong because you’ve misunderstood or mis-read the post Such as the example I just gave. And do it time after time. LOL 🤣

    Australian (Open) Tennis and COVID-19

    Ah, that's why you take umbrage with my posts so often. You appear to mis-read or mis-understand them. I didn't say or imply my post or quote was a fact-check, but I simply asked the question Maybe I should have bolded it to make it really clear. :) Oh, and your presumption re the...

    May that continue :) but I think that 'chronic' is used in the sense of 'continuing' rather than 'really bad'.

    Australian (Open) Tennis and COVID-19

    Do we need a fact check on that? Report a couple of days ago, referred by me above, was that Tennis Australia was going to exhaust its $80 million cash reserve AND borrow many millions more, to fund this event and its associated costs, as well as the funding it gets from the Victorian...

    Are the sessions free, or more heavily subsidised? My 'Health Care Plan ones are the latter. Maybe its a different thing...

    Yes, referral is necessary - "ophthalmologist" is a fancy name for an eye surgeon. They shouldn't hold back on a referral, as its the specialist who is best positioned to judge, unless, of course, you are a perfectly healthy under 30! As an aside, whenever I go into my ophthalmologist for a...

    I wore glasses for about 10 years, from a teenager, then went to hard contacts when I was in the NT tropics because of sweat and fogging with glasses going in and out of aircon. PITA. Went on with contacts afterwards, but once tried glasses again when the contacts couldn't adjust for...
