Yes.I wonder if the sheer number of infected travellers boarding the flight makes a difference to likelihood of spread on board.
QLD's Dr Young Border Clock TM Estimated Opening Updates (according to COVIDLive)Sounds like a Dorothy Dixer to raise it today....lol
FML - why didn't the man say this earlier.......so we are probably back to 7/9 (if I remember correctly) since the last mystery case.
h) apparently we haven't been able to pay hospital providers on time so we can't afford Interstate freeloaders.e). When did we say we would open the border with NSW?
f). It's NSW fault for letting the passengers off the Ruby Princess.
g). We have to protect the health of Queenslanders.
Meanwhile AP is practicing her speech 'No-one opens borders like we do. We have done more to open borders than anybody else.......................
This is actually a really good idea.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.
You'll be pleased to see more evidence that the inquiry is investigating more than the security guards:Yes this inquiry seems to have totally missed the mark, and been too focussed on the security guards rather that why and how hotel quarantine failed so badly. We all know that it failed badly. That was a given.
Yes I read the other news stories yesterday. Not The Australian as I don't have access. Their reporting seems to be a bit different than above.You'll be pleased to see more evidence that the inquiry is investigating more than the security guards:
The inquiry into Victoria’s bungled hotel quarantine scheme will examine how nine workers became infected with coronavirus at quarantine hotels after the program was revamped in late July.The Australian revealed on Tuesday the nine included a Department of Health and Human Services staff member, a Victoria Police member, two Alfred Health employees and five employees of catering and cleaning company Spotless....Victorian Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton says he does not regard it as as an improbable coincidence that nine staff members infected with COVID-19 while working in the Andrews government’s overhauled hotel quarantine program since late July have been assessed by state health authorities as most likely having acquired the coronavirus elsewhere.
I would expect qLD/NSW border to be open 23 October 1 day before the AFL grand final and 8 days before the election.QLD's Dr Young Border Clock TM Estimated Opening Updates (according to COVIDLive)
- If QLD/Dr Young accept the genomic testing NSW is at day 13/28 no mystery cases meaning QLD would open its borders on 15th October
- If QLD/Dr Young does not accept the genomic testing NSW is at day 5/28 no mystery cases meaning QLD would open its borders on 23rd October
- VIC is at day 2/28 no mystery cases meaning QLD would open its borders on 25th October
*Please note Dr Young's QLD border clocks may be subject to monthly reviews only due to QLD's complete inability to meet more than monthly. Please note Dr Young's QLD border clocks are subjective and agreed upon and supported by no one except Dr Young and QLD so criteria may change at any moment depending on the direction of the wind on the day, we apologise in advance for any errors due to change of mind.
This is actually a really good idea.
With a rapid test this opens up many opportunities for monitoring.I agree.
It is a good proactive measure that guards against there being some unknown cases bubbling away, that then infect a particular workplace potentially causing scores or more of cases before it is detected by someone presenting for testing.
I doubt that provided cases are zero for a while that they would maintain it for a length period. But certainly over the next few months it makes enormous sense.
With these workplaces too they have just recently had the % who can work any one shift increased and so risk has also increased. So surveillance monitoring is a good move in these workplaces.

Seems like the Vic government have learnt from their past mistakes
The Victorian government hastily stood down private security in the state’s remodelled hotel quarantine program and sent in police to guard people infected with coronavirus after concerns were raised about poor infection control.www.theage.com.au
