Last I checked, people at weddings breathed too...(and sometimes sweaty dancing!)Perhaps you forgot the sweaty person rule.....all that exhaling ....aerosols.
People doing active exercise don’t wear masks and they do breathe more heavily: puff out breath in fact, which means aerosol particles spread further.Last I checked, people at weddings breathed too...(and sometimes sweaty dancing!)
Just trying to make the point, differing restrictions for what is generally a similar risk factor seems odd. Unless it's more to do with the ability to trace who was there...
There was a heavy police present at Smith Street in Pendle Hill on Monday afternoon.
NSW Health confirmed just after 5pm that a woman in her 80s had passed away there.
A coroner’s van was spotted heading to the home around the same time.
There are reports there was a large gathering at the same house on the weekend with police attending.
A Pendle Hill home was under police scrutiny over the weekend for hosting 50 grieving family members, in breach of NSW restrictions.
At least 28 people have now contracted Covid-19.
Behind paywallDo you have a link, as all the ones I can find are more no decision till tomorrow?
It is understood Victoria will revert to a “lockdown lite”, with health officials hoping to hold some restrictions in place until vaccination rates are vastly improved.
“The restrictions are going to be onerous for the next few months,” one source said.
“It’s going to not be worthwhile for a lot of restaurants to open if what is being talked about goes ahead,” another source said. “Not great news for Melbourne.”
As there are such large loopholes & they have painted themselves into a corner - enforcement will be like trying to hold water in a collander.Unless they crack down on those not isolating they will be in lockdown until Christmas. Time for Gladys to stop the imploring and start enforcement
There are millions of AZ doses in extended storage as all States have not accepted/requested their latest offerings. NSW has formally turned down receipt of over 600,000 AZ doses but this is getting near zero coverage as it would not look good refusing to take available AZ into the State system whilst demanding Pfizer vaccines instead.Agreed.
I actually think diverting Pfizer vaccines away from the other states is not the right choice. While yes it may be in the short term, the reality is that Delta IS infectious, leaks from hotel quarantine WILL continue to occur and it completely impossible to predict where. In that context, as broad an immunity as we can obtain across the country will serve us best.
However, every unused dose of Astra-Zeneca sitting on storage shelves should be going straight to NSW. That will be replaced quickly enough by freshly manufactured doses from CSL.
Rapid tests should absolutely be deployed in Sydney at the moment - the reluctance on that is frustrating.
My understanding is that while they sometimes report false positives (inconvenient), they don't report false negatives (problematic).
