Two of relevance in SA and all previously in strict quarantine. One from Restaurant (mother of a child previously positive and in Toms Court) and the other I think already in a med hotel and from the winery.

It appears that none of the positives had been vaccinated, yet several were certainly of the age to receive AZ.

Did either of the new cases, test negative on a prior test taken after coming in contact?

The mother who is in the special positive clinic most certainly would have, and most likely the other man. They are on to their second round of tests now (its Day 8 of exposure at the restaurant and 7 for the winery)
 
Your simple solution to home security. Quickly view what’s happening at home when you're not there, giving you peace of mind.

Simple plug-in installation means you’ll be up and running in no time.

Its not worth releasing lockdown in Victoria yet - probably extend 5 days to Sunday.

If no new cases (ie from now) are infectious in community I suspect it will be a staged relaxation from midnight Tuesday.

ie They would keep say work from home if you can. Mask rules to stay..... No football crowds....

How LaCrosse goes, may also influence.

May be the person who was meant to be isolating got it off the flight attendant....missed one bullet from work, but got hit by another bullet from your friend.
I think more likely, given that she was not tested until 21/7...perhaps there was just an issue in an exact recollection of the onset of symptoms.

I just edited my earlier post/guess.

Apparently the person was positive on 12/7 - but pathology gave a wrong negative outcome. So my next best guess is that flight attendant had symptoms but got covid after meeting friend on 14/7. I assume Flights passengers on 11/7 and 12/7 has been testing negative still

Possible, but the day 5 testing NSW is doing is still in my mind. Give 5 day from last possible Tier 1 exposure might be a prudent way to go. Apartments don't have QR codes typically, so authorities will be relying on visitors' recollection.

I just think Brad is a no nonsense type of person.
Unfortunately the call for other states to donate vaccines to NSW is pure political nonsense. Even if every state gave all their pfiser to NSW, since there are extremely limited supplies available, in reality it would make little or no difference. Plus one dose is not effective for 10-14 days and then only marginally, and where’s their second dose going to come from?

It’s nothing like the situation of floods or fires and it would leave other states in greater peril. QLD has fundamentally got to the current situation with lockdowns and a very large dose of good luck. That could run out very quickly.

Yes. It was very publicised at the time.

Though not sure why that is relevant to what I posted which was that he was part of the 80 % who do not tend to infect others which is a function of how covid 19 works in their body. Most people simply do not tend to be able to infect others easily. Whereas a small % can infect others very easily.
It was purely a random fact as the guy at the time was flogged everywhere for his movements.

A snapshot of NSW contact tracing getting through a bit of backlog of currently under investigation as to source day by day. I believe some in coming days might be 'confirmed' as no link when cases are at 28 days of age (edit: due to minimal importance for tracing efforts).

Agree…The impacts of the flat earthers who congregated in CBD yesterday whining about their ‘Freedumb’ being violated will raise concerns about spread. Why don't they protest about something they can control just as much as this pandemic like -I dont know- gravity….….
What an appalling affront to those who have lost loved ones from Covid and those who take on the risks working in healthcare on frontline every day.
Re: protesters - I hope every single one of them is identified, made to quarantine for at least 2 weeks.
My condolences to all those who have lost loved ones…

I am sure they will bring in their placards with ‘dont treat me’ to the hospital when they are ill and need help.. a little section in the hospital carpark next to the rubbish bins could he set aside for them

In the short term yes it makes no difference. But if this drags on for months then you would see a result for the limited supply you have. Other countries have faced this issue before us and used this method successfully.

Only one person of my social circle is worried about catching COVID and he is immuno-compromised. I still don’t know anyone personally who has had it in Australia although several members of my family in the UK have and two elderly relatives died. Here we are all vaccinated and not expecting to catch it. We take the normal precautions (mask wearing, etc.) and follow the rules. We live in a part of Sydney that has hardly any cases.

When COVID comes up in conversation the main topics are:

Current Sydney lockdown and when is it going to finish
Incompetence of Federal Govt, especially Morrison and Colbeck - many of my circle have relatives in aged care.
Inability to travel overseas
State border closures - whatever happened to Australia?
i want my old life back

Last year the main discussion focus was being thankful we are in Australia but that has completely changed and many now express the view that they wish they were in Europe or the US. Generally though we talk less and less about the pandemic and more about family, sports, work, etc.
This is almost word for word exactly what it’s like in my social circle here in the ACT, with the added topic of when the virus will arrive here from Sydney.
