Realistically, the correct training would be risk management. Based on that, the Commissioner is probably a sensible choice. Unfortunately, police do tend to see things in monochrome, but at least they realise it's an imperfect world and compromise positions are sometimes inevitable.

Live with covid FFS.

How easy is it, don't have to look abroad for how it goes, NSW & VIC doing it & it's not an issue, we don't even talk about it, it's all what you doing for Xmas, how's work, where you going for next holiday blah blah, best thing that can happen covid arrives in so many aspects.

Choice is live like hermit free WA or free NSW n Vic.

Actually she is the CHO with probably the most training. She is a qualified Paediatrician with a few papers on asthma in children. She is also a qualified public Health Physician and has a graduate diploma in Epidemiology.
But there is no training unfortunately in common sense.
Training and qualifications do not always mean competency, unfortunately.
Half of the public health physicians are below the average 😂

Numbers in Vic and NSW today will no doubt aid those who wish to keep borders shut

Not if they understand the mportant numbers.

In NSW no omicron cases in hospital, no evidence that omicron causes serious illness. Delta cases bubbling along at stable levels, hospitals coping fine. Everything is open and people arent hiding under the doona.

There hasn't been a death world wide with the Omicron variant. We only have 1 person in hospital with covid and they arent there because of Covid. So WA and NT have shut us out, maybe we shut out Vic, NSW and ACT. Stupid.

SA Press conference at 9.45 SA time.

I think the Chief Hairdresser has probably won then. What. A. Joke.

I really look forward to hearing their justification given their cases are actually below the modelling predicted…

Again, she is annoying me but the final decision isn’t hers to make. She can only make these stupid recommendations not implement them

Police Commissioner? Because he doesn’t have pandemic expertise anyway other than locking us down.

No change but ‘extraordinary concerned’.

Just test on arrival for NSW, VIC and ACT and isolate (yea right). Then a day 6 test (sure thing).

SA officially becomes another nutbag state. Who are they getting their advice / information from….? Clearly they are clued into something that is behind withheld from other states.

I truly hope Tassie and QLD are more rational.

It’s the damn variant giving them the excuse. Blaming lack of knowledge re efficacy and severity. All cases are linked. Four today. Marshall looks shaken.

All knowledge and information (limited admittedly) points to an even milder variant and likely reasonable vaccine protection. So where are they getting their disaster scenario information from I wonder?
