And I’ve been watching friends who’ve had holidays all over Australia for the last 12 months. FNQ, Gold Coast, Sydney, NT, Tassie, even Perth …..
Same, so what.
So all about Victoria being the danger again I see. Not that I would take Mark McGowan as the authority on Covid19, though he does know exactly what buttons to push with his voters and his press conferences are to that audience..
However back in Oct 2020 VicDHHS greatly changed how they handle CV19 (ie two rings method, improving contact tracing and raft of other changes etc) .
So since 1st Nov 2020 Victoria since those changes has had 160 local community cases of Covid 19. So yes on your highlighting of border transmission into Victoria over one hundred and twenty of those cases yes did originate from another state and so that in recent history is where most outbreaks in Victoria have been sourced from (Not that I am finger pointing as the virus is very transmissible), but irrespective of that since the new measures have been deployed any outbreak in Victoria has been quite swiftly dealt with.
The Whittlesea and related clusters grew to 94 cases in part due to an early case who was a super spreader not getting tested for 12 days when symptomatic but also in large part due the much high transmissibility of the new strain (The transmissibility of which you at the time ridiculed when Sutton reported what the contact tracing had discovered, but which presumably now that Dr Chant has reported the same behaviour you accept) and that has led to the settings being changed in Victoria (ie No lockdown for used at Smile Buffalo Outbreak)
NSW has in the same period 496 local community cases (not including whatever today's cases are). I make no negative judgement as NSW Health works well and the virus is easily transmissible, but your constant harping on how things are managed in Victoria ignores the actual reality of what has happened since last October.
I don’t understand why Victoria is being punished for the NSW outbreak while they have border controls present. Makes no sense to me.... but yea WA... sigh
