Officially 9 cases in WA today.

From what I have heard, the boffins at WA Health don't think they have an accurate line of sight as to how many cases there really are.

No way…. 🤪

Our contacts there say it’s game over. But I think they are also praying that it is because they are cutting us a cheque for doing nothing because we can’t get HCPs in 😂

Testing numbers are not encouraging. If the % positive starts to pick up without the number of tests picking up, I'm inclined to agree.

I wonder if WA might be in for double .... cv numbers apparently rising, and the rail link to the east simultaneously cut.

I heard yesterday that supplies through SA to WA were becoming problematic.
Yep, some road freight companies refusing to go to WA and others due to driver shortages are concentrating their efforts to short Eastern trips.
Similar story with air freight due to lack of flights not to mention a rise in the “WA Tax” levied on them

To use a fitting analogy - we seem to be having a long taxi; when will we get airborne, I wonder 🤔:rolleyes:.

And in reverse the SA flight is at the furthest away gate for disembarkation. We will have a protracted long tail (with no huge spike.)

Busiest I’ve seen the CBD in a while today and traffic a lot busier. The messaging from Marshall seems clearer and it seems people are starting to show some confidence in getting back out and about again

Pretty much what WA is aiming for.

Non of this burns briefly but very brightly stuff. Drag it out....

If they are correct about Covid becoming endemic the tail will never end, and it will just go up and down in waves of various sizes due to variety of factors. The severity (virulence) largely depending on the variant/s of the time.

No huge spike means that the health system and economy will both cope better.

Yep, that is indeed the plan. Just hope the daily reporting of numbers ends and we can return to important things like elective surgery etc.

I reckon that might well turn out to be Perth’s equivalent of the Fanny’s nightclub super spreader event in Newcastle.
Was incredibly successful at accelerating the cases here.

I think you might be right as most have been infectious and active in the community spreading it around.

My parents said there had been panic buying in their local (I think more to do with the massive freight issues into WA than covid?) so I said happy new year welcome to 2020 and they laughed, grimacing 😂

The rail line must surely be starting to hurt WA.
