Well it may now be private enterprise taking the lead on the type of projects that already should have been built and operating.

Wagners propose Queensland coronavirus quarantine facility near Wellcamp airport west of Toowoomba

They could easily shove a village of demountables right next door to Wellcamp airport (can handle large jets) and fly people directly in there to avoid the high risk internal transport....

Question is whether those areas have any recent cases that could still be shedding.

Given QLD Health literally cut and paste their press release every single time there is wastewater positives they clearly aren’t that worried.

But it is a little strange QLD keeps returning positives so frequently compared to VIC, SA for example. NSW gets positives all the time of course in Sydney west and south west.

NSW no local cases, 2 from overseas

Just on the local zero cases:

NSW is almost up to the 14 day incubation period now.

The 10 days reached in NSW is also pertinent as the two recent strains were not of the more transmissible strains that saw the National Cabinet extend isolation from 10 days to 14 days.

So that provides further grounds for Qld, Vic and other jurisdictions to remove, or at least further ease, the current travel restrictions from all of NSW.

I do sometimes question the definitions used on those Covid-Live tables and charts.

Because I notice WA has only 25 days since last local case, but dont recall any reports of community transmission in WA and their Premier loves to quote how long since that has been the case. So for there to have been a local case in last 4 weeks someone must have caught Covid in HQ (as opposed to having had acquired overseas) and not same risk as a community case.

WRT testing numbers, given the public holiday not surprised they are lower. But also we have just had 5 days of crazy heat, so not likley many are exeperiencing cold or flu-like symptoms. Unless they request asymptomatic testing for LGAs of concern then I cant see the numbers staying too high unless there is another community case or HQ leak to scare people.

All the exposure sites noted on the NSW health page were quite som time ago now.

WA had that case where someone went to HQ to visit their younger brother and reportedly acquired Covid

From SMH:

NSW Premier announces major easing of restrictions

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced restrictions will be eased in greater Sydney from 12.01am AEDT on Friday.

You will be able to welcome 30 people in your household including children from Friday morning.

Outdoors gatherings can be up to 50 people.

For weddings and funerals, the new limit will be one person per four-square metres and up to 300 people and places of worship will be allowed to have one person per 4 square metres with no maximum cap.

Ms Berejillian said masks will be recommended for retail shopping and hospitality venues. However, masks will still be mandatory on public transport and at places of worship. Masks will also remain compulsory in gaming rooms and in aged care facilities or health facilities.

At beauty and hair salons, masks will still be mandatory for patrons and staff.


In two weeks time, if there are no community cases detected, all settings will revert to the two-square-metre rule. “We are not there yet,” Ms Berejiklian said.

Ms Berejiklian said this further easing of restrictions in a couple of weeks was “a high probability”.

CommSec Chief Economist Craig James said the gaps between states and territories have been shortened as different strategies to the COVID-19 virus play out economically.
"We began to see compression in the economic rankings in the last quarter, and this has continued in the latest report," Mr James said.
"Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia were the biggest improvers over the past quarter with their success in suppressing the COVID-19 virus appearing to have supported these states' economic performance.
"Victoria and ACT suffered more in their rankings due to the uncertainty and change brought by the pandemic."
The sixth ranking for NSW is its lowest spot in eight years.
