Totally agree but realistically, how long can the feds fly under the radar? The situation is crying out for strong central leadership and the current interstate schmozzle's are caused by lack of same.
So what dou you expect would happen in the next federal election if Scomo had got WA ,QLD,SA and Tasssie to open their borders by coercion?
I would suggest they would lose a heap of seats in QLD and WA plus the seat of Braddon in Tasmania.So it ain't going to happen.It would be the same if the opposition was in power.

Sorry if I'm being confused as to sequence but my reading was multiple negatives, followed by positive, quite a few days into quarantine?

Sorry if there was any confusion from my post as I was not talking about the young child. What I referring to was the first person in this cluster who was infected via the quarantine breach was not known about till the elderly woman presented at the hospital and they began to test her close contacts. This quickly led to a lot of her family being tested many of whom returned a positive result on the same day. Many, if not all of them, in that batch will have been infected for some time prior to the test. So hence to me it is not surprising that we are already seeing many in this cluster having already recovered and who are no longer active cases.

Given the warning last night it seems that the most recent male who tested positive and while not a close contact but the ring behind that, did not isolate as required. He seems to have attended a second language class and the warning last night that anyone who had attended from 13th November up until yesterday now has to isolate alomg with their family and have two Covid tests. Because people can't be trusted. But that Is what we are relying on them to do.

For the record, VIC zeros all around again and 5,905 tests yesterday. Guess there's no impetus for mass asymptomatic testing at the moment.

What worries me next is international hotel quarantine - hope the lessons have been well and truly learned (is a foolproof system realistic?).

The plan for VIC quarantine sounds more like running a high security highly infectious prison facility but I guess the virus commands that kind of response. Other states are apparently following their plan with the testing regime and working arrangements too.

I have to agree with you. My point was more that the current situation has resulted from a central vacuum. There's been vague noises from Canberra but that's about it. On the whole, they've been happy to keep their heads down and fall back on health being a State responsibility.

I’m a little perplexed by this as the director of the IELI said the school has been shut since November 17th and students had switched to online learning so has this person been in self isolation like required or where have they been?

Is this the person below, or the person who transmitted it to him?

Those who attended SA English language school since November 13 must self-isolate


SA Health has identified a new COVID hotspot after two new cases of COVID-19 were detected in South Australia yesterday.

Anyone who has attended the Intensive English Language Institute at Flinders University's Sturt Campus since November 13 must self-isolate and get tested.

One of the positive cases yesterday, a man in his 30s, is believed to have contracted COVID-19 while at the institute.

Chief Public Health Officer, Nicola Spurrier, says he had been in quarantine after he was identified as a casual contact of a positive case.

"One word of caution is that this person was considered a casual contact rather than a close contact," she said.

"This is highly contagious so it's not that you have to hang out with people for a long period time we're seeing people who have got infected through fairly brief contacts."

Yes. But why the dates for the last two weeks if he’s been in quarantine for 10 days and only just positive yesterday. Unless....

Absolutely agree and it makes NO SENSE at all. The school was closed. So 🤷‍♀️

So here I am sitting in car park at Brickworks Woolies waiting to go in, listening to Prof Spurrier and the damn close contact didn’t quarantine. And went into the store I’m just I was about to go into. I need to check my credit card to see the date time. Same day. Depends on the time. I was wearing a mask.

Sh@t. Can’t see the time. Bugger. Covid test.
Can you contact your Bank by phone? They should be able to tell you the details.

FFS this really annoys me. It makes you think twice about going anywhere now.

Sounds like this person visited many places on day 5 of his supposed quarantine.
Lock them up I say

Pre coved I would never had agreed with you, jail is not the answer for the less serious end of offending or for drug addicts. But now if you are wilfully going to put people at risk then you are (using the mental health detention definition) a danger to yourself or others and deserve containment if you are in a quarantine period. If you get found out after quarantine punishment should fit the crime.
