That's the thing with redirecting vaccines. Everyone is 7 days away from being in a bad situation. Do you send them back if something changes?

Sounds like Yr 12 are not returning (on the 16th) after all.

Gladys seems defeated and deflated today.

That was always a dubious move with this level of community spread, and morseo with all the unknown cases.

You may recall that in the Vic Second Wave that one of biggest clusters was due that cohort at one particular school that fuelled cases amongst the students, teacher, parents and then out. Israel experienced similar.

The problem is that students at that age have adult bodies, and while the in-school measures were strict that some teenagers being teenagers that socialisation still occurred before and after school hours commencing that lead to transmission.

Not a great look redirecting the Belmont Hub vaccines now

I wonder if there’s a risk Newcastle gets sucked into the Greater Sydney lockdown?
That’s a given.

She is trying to save face and not adhere to Dans advice around ring of steel to protect regional. Geelong was cut off from Melbourne last year. The south coast of Sydney should be also.

Regardless there is zero signs that this is slowing. She cited more freedoms late August with higher vaccination numbers, but also case numbers. I’m a tad nervous they are about to surge.

Dr Chant said today we can have a conversation about 'living with covid' at 80% vaccination. I think the message was probably more for the people standing behind her than in front of her.

Gladys just trying to cushion the blow against her by shifting the commentary this month to vaccination, rather than her screwup of this entire situation.

More needs to be done to get this damn thing down to near as zero as possible. I just feel like we are in a continuous holding pattern.

The sooner the politic talk moves from the parent-child ‘protect you from COVID’ to the adult-adult talk of ‘live with Covid’ will be the day that people will get vaccinated. I’m too old to live with the parent talk.
Is that part of the problem?

Only Victoria had the parent-child talk and after the 5 month lockdown - now are in arguably adult-adult relationship. All the other States haven't had that experience.

I think with today's news of Victoria's success at getting the genie back in the bottle again might have thrown her... seeing as she has spent the month saying that the Delta variant is completely different to every other previous outbreak in terms of containment

I’d say that’s on the cards big time.

I’m wondering if they would do a hard lockdown like Orange/Blayney ?
It would probably be more successful than just adding us into the Greater Sydney list.

Well I think it’s the way the Feds talk to us. And most certainly in SA. I feel like Prof Spurrier is my great Aunt giving me life advice. I’m too old for that. She wants to keep QR check in going - forever 😱. Apparently there was robust discussion at their meeting because Prof would like to keep us in lockdown but Grant Stevens is adamant we can’t keep everyone locked up with zero community transmission.

But yes, maybe Victoria has moved on.

( as an aside, an SAussie has been trying to get to his mum in RAH who is dying of brain cancer. Not aware of her environment much. He flew from overseas and in Qld quarantine and not allowed to come to SA yet. He had organised a charter flight to get him here safely. Yesterday she had the gall to say that it was likely that she would still be alive once he got here after quarantine and they were moving her. I suspect but don’t know, into palliative care. Said she was doing well. Family were so distressed and filmed the mum. Well, the flack she created amongst SA means that today he was granted an exemption).

😱 that seems like a really long incubation period??
13 days apparently but wonder if his exposure was from the other members of the family testing positive and not from the original event. We don’t ever seem to zoom in on instances like that.

Umm please listen to how we are spoken to in QLD. Oh and WA. SA as well.

And right now I think NSW sound exactly like exasperated exhausted parents telling the naughty kids not to do the same thing for the 100th time. Happens everywhere .

How often are close contacts in isolation tested? They could've turned positive long before day 13.

I rest my case about how history will judge us. See my post #8954 in:
