Given the data coming out of Israel, Apple should look at getting into the iStay ankle bracelet sector…
The iStay is certain to require an upgrade to the very latest iPhone for the accompanying app!

Not what one wants to see.

Presumably at BR International Logistics someone worked for 7 days (possibly more than one person as it is 7 days straight) while infectious.

Hopefully it does not have too large a workforce.

So

Well we have our own home grown covidiot who flew back from Melbourne on 15/7.She had been at a tier 1 hotel in Melbourne but didn't think she had to isolate.When she arrived was told to do 14 days home isolation.So what did she do.

Public exposure sites have so far been listed as follows:


  • Thursday 15 July: Sunshine Coast Plaza, including Universal store, 3.55pm to 4.15pm
  • Thursday 15 July: Rice Boi, 123 The Wharf, Parkyn Parade, Mooloolaba, 6.45pm to 8pm
  • Friday 16 July: 615 bus from Maroochydore Station to Landsborough Station, 1.11pm
  • Friday 16 July: Train from Landsborough Station to Eagle Junction Station, 2.06pm
  • Friday 16 July: Airtrain from Eagle Junction Station to Brisbane Domestic Airport, 3.29pm

She was picked up in Cairns by a relative and she was driven back to her home in Mareeba.


After developing some symptoms she went to the Atherton fever clinic on Sunday and returned a positive result on Monday night.


Apparently since that list now a hotel and an Uber trip.

There goes home quarantine after OS trips.Ankle bracelets essential.Should be stockpiling them now.
It’s the most obvious symptom of Covid - going all over the country on as many forms of transport as possible. It’s almost like a status run.

Another positive in SA and is linked to the Greek Restaurant but can't see any more details. Clearly an Eastern suburbs person as they'd been to many of my old local haunts. And a school in the west. School holidays only finished on Friday so hopefully not too much carnage.

It was a student free day at Westminster on Monday, so that helps limit the amount of people that were on site. It is a boarding house staff member that has tested positive, attended a staff development day on the Monday. There were Year 10 and 11 students at school for and information evening. I received the SA Health message to quarantine with family as picked my daughter up from the ELC there Monday

That 'larrikin streak' and dismissal of authority so celebrated as part of Australian culture, is really failing us during this pandemic.

I wonder what the real percentage of people breaking the rules (such as 'you must isolate', or 'you must stay locked down' actually is? (it's much greater than the one or two percent referred to in government update speeches! - that only covers the ones they know about). I'm guessing more like 10-20%. Probably at the higher end.

Well even though the 22 new cases is not good, at least they are all linked.

With Roxburgh Park Woman Mystery Case having now been linked that may well have caused a bulge in cases.

With BR International Logistics listed as a 7 day, 12 hour per day, exposure site last night it will probably cause a bulge of cases depending on how many staff it has. It is also so far the only exposure site so far listed for 19th July. Though depending when the first case there was found it may mean that cases from that will more appear in tomorrow's figures than todays.

I bumped into a builder I hadn't seen for years at my local coffee shop this morning. He was moaning about the ban on construction when his current 2 projects are in Lane Cove LGA where there are no Covid cases. He said that if most cases are passed on in the home then why are we still allowed to stay in our homes? He was only half-joking.

Not wanting to generalise but here goes - you’d be hard pressed to find a group of people more likely to break the rules than construction. There’s a site office for a hotel redevelopment near me and they’ve rented some old retail space for the office. The staff in the site office would never wear masks even when the indoor mask mandate was declared. Someone must have reported them as they covered the window over, so they could continue not wearing masks.

I feel for the builders who do the right thing but that applies to hospitality venues, retail and all other sectors hurting. Construction gets looked after very well in this country.

Gladys has basically guaranteed regardless of case numbers that construction will reopen on time. How come every other sector doesn’t get that guarantee?
