This will definitely spawn a few cases unfortunately but that’s ok that’s part of the plan, we have to live along side this virus.

Unfortunately I think you may be right. The taxi driver has super-spreader potential. NSW government seems fairly confident about living with the virus. Unfortunately Dear Leader, Dr Young and AP, Mark McGowan, etc. don't share this confidence.

They did.....and also on Twitter, which you don’t follow.

Agree. I later checked SA health that updates at 5.30pm. Over it by then. Which is why the media doesn't bother anymore. They've gone home for the day apparently 😀

Sadly many Australians refuse to accept that reality - probably because we were too successful, even in Victoria (back in May.)

Because 3 state premiers/first minister in particular have weaponised the pandemic into election campaigns and have purposefully and brilliantly whipped their states into a state of fear so high that people think is is ok to turn their back on vulnerable Australians stuck overseas, interstate and seem to tolerate all the tragic stories we’ve seen domestically almost every day... :( I do see the tide turning though with glimmers of hope appearing with recent backflips.

The last several days have gone very well, so much so that Vic now looks on track to be approaching zero new daily cases by the end of Sept.

Melbourne has also gone well enough, with positive good enough, to earn going to next step a bit earlier. No doubt we will see more bouncing now as with numbers now this slow small clusters can affect the daily number quite greatly.


Update on Vic graphs.

Given VIC's circumstances great news and really hope the numbers keep going this way.

Recently noticed the app has national numbers and confirmed cases itemised by state/territory. Of course, the numbers for VIC look downright ghastly compared to everywhere else 😥

For those that like chasing numbers, including these stats is a good way to subtly encourage opening the app and thus increase its chances of working.
