Our CHO will be quivering in anticipation as it is likely SA is about to record one if not two omicron cases. We get perhaps three cases a day, the chances of one being omicron are infinitesimal but here it is. Hopefully properly in isolation pre results.

I thought at 90% double dosed she gets vanished like Dr Chant 😂

Well that’s the plan. Tide has turned against the trio in SA and there is a March election. The ones who want the doona are angry it’s gone. The ones who wanted open borders are angry they aren’t really open. Fair square landed himself in a pile of angry people on all sides.

Really shouldnt be the case.

3rd dose of PZ has shown to provide protection against omicron and we are still yet to see any serious illness, time to let it rip, so the Delta variant which can be problematic gets sent packing.
Except we are trying to stop omicron.

Absurd they are ok with Delta (the dangerous one) but fearful of Omicron which has not shown to cause serious illness.
All about blame, they won't acknowledge this until they can 'blame' someone if it all backfires. They need someone to state if is less dangerous than Delta.

Omicron could be milder than the mildest flu, with runny nose and a medium headache, but border controls will still be here in 12 months, and mandatory vaccinations still in force to move between states. They have gone so far with this they can't pull back.

NSW Health says no new cases of Omicron detected overnight There is a total of 42 cases of COVID-19 with the Omicron variant in NSW.

So far not proving to be more contagious nor more serious than Delta in NSW.

Didn't we used to say letting the kids play in the dirt and getting dirty allows them to develop immunity from all sorts of things?. Now the adults are scared of "Playing in the dirt"?
Even before Covid the whole world became infected with Anxiety. We are now the world of "Glen20" where we exhort people to spray everything, and the world of "safe spaces" where we can feel "safe" - erroneously from external dangers, but in actuality from the Anxiety within

It’s interesting isn’t it. I’m someone who has never been overly pedantic. I travel to all sorts of dirty, undeveloped and generally unhygienic places. I eat questionable food, don’t sanitize my hands after touching every surface in Cameroon and even socialize with locals sometimes.

End result, I never get sick. Over the last 18 months however, I’ve had a few colds, few sore throats, blocked noses etc.

Confirmed: 55 (42 NSW - including 13 non-local; 7 ACT, 1 NT non-local, 2 Qld non-local, 3 Vic non-local)

First NSW Omicron case was reported on 28th Nov since then there have been a total of 42 cases in 13 days is hardly something to worry about.

In that same period there have been 3,683 Delta cases in NSW.

So Omicron accounts for (42 /3725) cases a piddly 1.12%, nothing to see here, move along.

Not to mention zero Omicron hospitalizations, ICU admission or deaths.

The only number I want to hear about covid from any elected, or health, official, is the percentage of ICU capacity being utilised and the trend of that use.

1 case, 100 cases, or 10,000 cases is no longer a relevant number.

According to a survey of ICU capacity Error - Cookies Turned Off

Victoria 476 ICU beds (so about 14% covid usage - 68 ICU today)
NSW 884 ICU beds (so about 3% covid usage)
ACT 37 ICU beds (so about 5% usage)
NT 20 ICU beds (had 1 covid in ICU recently, currently none)
SA 161 ICU beds (0% covid usage)
Qld 408 ICU beds (0% covid usage)
WA 159 ICU beds
Tas 38 ICU beds

Hospitalisation and ICU usage tend to lag the trend of daily new known positives.

But not by that much, generally if you are going to be hospitalised it's within a week of diagnosis.

ICU within a fortnight, death within a month (usually soo er as those that die are mostly elderly with other serious underlying conditions).

7 weeks now since international borders opened in NSW without HQ and we are hearing nothing about testing facilities, hospitals or ICU not coping. It's all back to BAU.

And even more so if the “positive cases” are fully vaccinated.

The covid hysteria is hilarious. Even the supposed neutral ABC reports “breaking” today that NSW has the highest numbers since reopening. I mean, who’d have thought higher “cases” now than when everywhere was closed and people were locked up 🙄

I agree I don’t know why people are so surprised this is exactly what the modelling predicted… sooo…?

We have to quarantine for 14 days if a close contact of Omicron which there are two suspects. Anyone having close contact today is quarantined for Christmas.
