Isn’t the likely source of this outbreak from the limo driver not hotel?
Yes. But the Qld premier said today that delta was spreading easily / quickly in hotels. From what we've heard so far you would have to imagine that it is more prone to leakage in HQ.

Well needs to be proven and not guessed at like pizza boxes.

I was pretty sure Dr Chant said the person who brought covid to the Birthday Party had been infected on Saturday in Bondi and then attended the party on Monday where they unknowingly infected 9 other guests. No time to rewatch the whole presser.

That makes sense but means that party trick worked very quickly.

Early days

Whilst delta strain may be more transmissable it isnt necessarily any more deadly. The one person in hospital is an overseas arrival not a community case. In past large clusters i.e Northern Beaches, Crossroads or BWS there has never been widespread hospitalisations in NSW. No reason to expect more serioud cases this time around.

This article probably gives a good overview on the Delta Strain.

EXPLAINER UPDATED JUNE 22, 2021

What We Know About the Dangerous COVID B.1.617.2 (Delta) Variant



Numerous COVID experts and the WHO warn that Delta variant will soon become the most dominant COVID strain in the world and drive rapid outbreaks among unvaccinated populations.
There is limited research regarding whether or not the Delta variant causes more severe illness than other variants. According to Public Health England, early data suggests that Delta is more likely to lead to hospitalization than Alpha, but that could be due to increased transmissibility rather than it being more pathogenic. Per the Guardian:
An analysis of 38,805 sequenced cases in England revealed that the Delta variant was associated with a 2.61 times higher risk of hospitalisation within 14 days of specimen date than the Alpha variant. There was a 1.67 times higher risk of A&E care within 14 days. These figures take into account factors such as age, sex, ethnicity, area of residence and vaccination status. Data from Scotland supported the findings, also pointing to a more than twofold higher risk of hospitalisation for those infected with the Delta variant compared with the Alpha variant.

.

Yes I think she may have. Easy to do when you are rattling off lots of data.

When she described the sequence of the days they did not seem quite mesh and so I suspect that she got one of days incorrect. Which part was not right I don't know.

I replayed it this morning to try and understand the sequence, but it did all not align.

Not to mention a highly stressful situation, they are all under the pump.

Was a bit mangled but it seems party was on Saturday, infected person developed symptoms on Sunday, positive test results returned on Monday, contact tracing started, positive results returned on Tuesday for a number of party participants including preschool child.
Dr Chant said there was a period where they would not have been infectious (Sunday) but all those individuals would have unknowingly had the infection on Monday. So it seems the Monday she referred to was the day when they could have spread the infection not the party itself. Sydney Morning Herald have reported party as Saturday and NSW Health reported Infected child's attendance at child care on the Monday.
" A total of 10 people who attended the party have now tested positive for COVID-19, including a two-year-old child, who attended Little Zak’s childcare in Narellan Vale on 21 June."

We don’t need 100 percent but we need something higher than 50 percent too

old saying mayhaps relevant.. familiarity breeds contempt..

Looks like I was right. We now have a case at Coles Kings X which was one of the places with a very poor level of mask compliance. I now have to test and isolate until negative… joy.

Monday 16th June? If Vic's contact tracers did that there'd be a one hour special on Sky News!
There’s a lot of errors in this list apparently… which is alarming in and of itself as a pointer to a team under pressure. Will still go get tested regardless.

The whole of Sydney now declared as a hot spot by QLD... :(

Feels like it’s not far away now :(
We are preparing our Sydney based teams (not in the hotspot LGAs yet)

Sydney locked in a time warp as Bondi cluster, exposure locations swell​


NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has given her clearest indication that Sydney is on the brink of a lockdown as health officials scramble to find missing links in the city’s growing COVID-19 cluster.

In a significant escalation of her rhetoric, Ms Berejiklian told Parliament today the government “will not hesitate to go further and harder if we have to” with restrictions.

Thank you. That make a lot more sense.

Old mate Brad Hazzard is a possible close contact and is isolating. He's had to do all his media interviews this morning remotely by phone.

Another occasion where you'd think this is all political theatre to get people to take notice... if it weren't so serious.

Ain't that the truth! Plus a long interrogation of James, Martin, Brett and Jerome by Rachel at the next presser.
Oh I don't know, I thought the reporters from the same organisation as Rachel who were demanding to know why Gladys was not locking down were having a good go.
