Victoria 13 new cases and 4 deaths

so Victoria/Melbourne would now be no longer a “hotspot” (28 over 3 days) and not much nearer to lifting restrictions, so much for the Commonwealth adopting their own standard.

Our entire legal system is based on the fact that people will do the "wrong" thing. For a multitude of reasons. Moral conscience doesn't come into it ...
I hope that most of us appreciate that the majority of travellers actually do the right thing, and have a moral conscience.

Of course they do. But that isn't the way the law works. That's why Joe Citizen with the highest moral conscience has all kinds of rules imposed on them as well. They aren't the targets.

I hadn’t intended to discuss the law. 😉

More about just doing the right thing. Most know right from wrong.

Speak of the hotspot devil...courtesy ABC COVID live blog

Hotspot definition at centre of trans-Tasman travel bubble delay

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says the next step towards resuming trans-Tasman travel rests with Australia.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been unable to get agreement from all of the states and territories on a uniform definition of a hotspot.

Mr Morrison is hoping rapid containment of COVID-19 hotspots will be sufficient to ease both interstate and international borders.

Ms Ardern has told Channel 9 New Zealand is waiting on that before proceeding with trans-Tasman travel.

"We will just need to make sure that hotspot regime works on our side, too, but we're all quite dedicated to making it work in the future," she said this morning.

But what you think is right others don’t. Who is in the right then? That’s why we have the law!

Classic case was in Victoria it was ok to exercise in public even with COVID. I think that’s very wrong. Stupid. But it was legal but only in Victoria.

People know right from wrong. Even most with an intellectual disability. It’s not exactly rocket science.

Glad the unknowns has dropped but still surprised that some people don't know who they came into contact with, hoping its just a delay with contact tracing.
7/10 of yesterdays Vic cases were unknown. Raw numbers aside, given the movement restrictions its a worry when 70% of cases still have unknown source. This is why other states want to see how Vic supposedly improved track and trace is working for at least a month before reopening to Vic. We need to see that they can keep new spread under control.

Sewage testing has revealed Covid 19 in Anglesea despite no conventional tests having been shown to be there. So mobile testing site will be set up there now.

On the release of the numbers, they always decrease as they link them after the tweet. Unknown transmission has come down over 80% in less than two weeks.

NEW IN VIC

Surveillance testing of food processing businesses (28,000) will by next week be required to test 25% of their staff each and every week. This apart from protecting food, is due the working conditions being more conducive to rapid virus spread between staff if it does enter the workforce there.

As is surveillance testing workers will not need to isolate.

NSW mystery case watch.

Still no change ...

- 1 in the last 14 days
- 2 in the period 15-28 days
- 28 older than 28 days and since Crossroads emerged

Still no change ... I'm guessing since 25/9 report.

You still come in contact with strangers at supermarkets etc...
True, but you would have hoped with 7 cases, plus how ever many today and the previous days, they might be able to work out possible commonalities like was done with Crossroads.
