The hotel worker with the false negative was the one who spread the virus at the private event. As soon as her positive came through all the people at event were told to test and do 14 days iso at home. At that point (a day after the event) it was unlikely the other guests were infectious yet. If those exposed guests live with other people who werent at the event, it would have been smarter for the ones who werent there to iso in a different house. If you are in a common household its pretty hard to avoid contact and shared ventilation.
Cuomo is known to have broken quarantine, along with his family, on at least one occasion.I remember watching Chris Cuomo the CNN journalist who caught CV19 and was doing his show from his basement while he recovered.
He was a "long-hauler" and remained positive and symptomatic for an extensive time period.
He tested positive on March 31, 2020. His wife and children quarantined upstairs from him, but brought him food etc but without close contact.
His wife tested positive on April 15
His 14 year old son tested positive on April 21 or 22
So if quarantining together it can take a little while for the virus to ripple through the people in the quarantined household.
(however if tests results were interpreted correctly the notification should have been faster)
What does it even matter they are in HQ everyone needs to calm down and breathe...
No, what matters is that Victoria is nowhere near as good as NSW, who are perfect (ducks for cover).Yes what matters is:
Is the outbreak being contained = yes
Has there been any unknown community transmission = no
Have all new cases been found promptly = yes
Have all the most probable people to have possibly been infected been swiftly placed into quarantine = yes
Have all the recent cases been occurring in people in already quarantine = yes
I was reading today that the UK was thinking of extending the quarantine time because the Kent variant has a longer infectious period. The article then went on to say that they will extend it from 10 days to 14 days! So all along it seems the UK has had a 10 day quarantine period. No wonder cases are spreading rapidly!These new strains seem to have longer incubation periods. Personally that is why I tend to believe they are more transmissible (ie not higher viral loads, but just because people stay infectious for longer and that can infect more people = higher Ro)
However if the two new cases were living with a case (quarantining together), they could have been infected much later than the person who infected them.
lovetravellingoz can never admit that any reason I post which was household transmission)l is the likely cause because it differs from their reason that it's due to the newer strains having longer incubation periods.
So instead lovetravellingoz disects posts and starts trying to prove Vic is perfect and tell others what should matter.
People can decide what matters to them it isn't always going to be about what matters to you. Stop looking to start arguments when none is necessary you can choose to believe it's not a case of household transmission but it is a super safe bet it is.

Perhaps if (most) of our venerable Premiers, Police Commissioners, and CHO's didnt panic then the rest of us might follow suit!
I really hope you get some work soon as you obviously have way too much time on your hands so have appointed yourself the fact check police, taking things out of context and gleefully making mountains out of molehills.
I remember when Boris developed Covid he only had to isolate for a week! They have learnt though, back in October son from Australia had to self isolate for a fortnight.I was reading today that the UK was thinking of extending the quarantine time because the Kent variant has a longer infectious period.

The very high testing numbers continue.
The 2 cases are primary contacts of already known cases and have been quarantining, so as expected as some of the primary cases are in their day 11-14.
Thankfully no ammunition for our trigger happy premiers and border openings will not be affected so everyone remain CALM
= as you say, don't panic.
This is just an example of a good system working well.
These two cases may well be people quarantining with a case, and if so can become infected well after the first person became infected.
Sure. But today is day 15? So usually majority return positive by around day 12 of exposure so it’s strange to have two today.
