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 .
You clearly didn't get the meaning of my badly worded post.

A long list, but only 1 close contact exposure site; a fruit shop in Campsie (Canterbury-Bankstown LGA). Just on that, have they ever published anything on the amount of transmission from close contact sites vs casual sites? Would be interesting to see how the ratio looks. Only really possible when all the links are there, too

Public sites with confirmed transmission (excludes workplaces not open to the public) are listed separately to the close and casual sites. Currently there are 6 with supermarkets featuring prominently.

The weekly surveillance reports will sometime provide more detail on the numbers from certain venues.

Just heard on the grapevine that QLD Health will no longer be admitting all metro Covid cases to hospital.

Unsure if case numbers/ policy change etc. Will report back if I hear something more concrete.
We are going around in circles. Back in April last year only sick positive people were put into hospital while the others isolated at home. Now we even put negative close contacts into a med hotel.

Unfortunately the circles might keep going.

In NSW a 20 year old died at home. Was a confirmed positive but not initially unwell enough to meet hospitalisation requirements. Had daily health checks, then rapidly deteriorated.

Interesting - I didn't know there was a Transmission site list in addition to the close contact list (or category). Transmission in those supermarkets likely between workers, at least for the most part and according to the CHO updates

Seems that neither of the two people who died in NSW were vaccinated. The woman in her eighties should have been but sadly the young man likely wasn’t eligible.

Majority for sure, but fact those particular ones are listed in that section of the update usually implies transmission to a customer rather than co-worker.

I saw these tweets this morning and just wondered how wise they were.



I guess there is nothing wrong with celebrating. But what exactly are we celebrating any more? Just a day closer to the next lockdown? Maybe it's just more of my frustration coming out, but sometimes it feels like we are doing this now just to say we did it. Again. That feels more hollow every time. Especially when there are vaccines we know work and can end this constant cycle just sitting on shelves :(

Yes, we are celebrating that collectively we got this under control! The important thing is that we're learning... we're closing the gaps through which the virus is coming in. Hopefully not to be repeated, and measures in place to stop other potential avenues.

If its listed on a transmission site ,there is a possibility of customer to worker transmission or worker to customer transmission.

Qld CHO getting less hopeful that the quick snap lockdown will be short. How do the SE Qlders think things are going at the moment??? Is there anecdotal evidence of horrible initial compliance like in Sydney???

But that's kind of simplistic isn't it? We can't stop every potential avenue, we know that and we've talked about it ad-nauseum (in this community and in the wider population). I guess that's why we're vaccinating, but why AZ isn't available to everyone to have by anyone at every state hub in the country by now is a serious public health failure.

But just wait and see what happens if you get a super spreader as an index case.Those gaps will open wide enough to drive a removalist's truck through. ;)

Probably the worst WA press conference yet. Ah yes, a press conference about a "possible" COVID case that "could be" infectious in the community but "might be" a shedder.

All this brought to you by no one with a medical degree present at the press conference to answer any real questions. Yawn.

FIFO worker who was at Perth Airport when the person from Quarantine in Queensland who was then required to return to Queensland where they tested positive has returned a 'weak' positive test. He has since returned a negative test as have his partner, flatmate and a close workmate. The FIFO worker had contracted Covid last year but it is apparently unlikely that this is 'shedding'. Genomic sequencing is unlikely to be obtained as the response was so 'weak'. The positive test was as a result of workplace testing by FMG.

Some of his other co-workers are in remote locations and unable to be contacted yet.
