One shouldn't laugh but ...
Why should the Federal Government be supplying RATs. health is a State resposibility. Some state Governments are providing RATs for those with symptoms or close contacts just as it should be.
The Commonwealth is responsible for the supply of tests to Aged Care facilities. I know here in Tasmania they have been distributed though some facilities are not using him rather locking down and banning visitors and admissions from hospitals even with negative PCRs.
And if the RATs are needed for travel I don't see why a government needs to be involved in their supply.
They are certainly stressing this triple dose in SA today but not referencing ICU data. It gets complicated when people may have been triple dosed but have severe underlying issues as well and still end up in ICU.And it has been mentioned by at least two CHOs that none of the ICU patients in Australia were tripple dosed.

The elephant itr here is that science is saying a booster is quite short acting.
Those of us who are basking in the sunshine with our triple shot insurance policy should also be hoping that the current wave abates quickly.
Another shot at 3>6 months may be helpful but current vaccines are likely bound by the law of diminishing returns.
No sign at all of the fat lady in this adventure of a lifetime…...
Agree, whats becoming increasing apparent is that we cannot vaccinate our way out of the pandemic. There is already talk of a 4th dose. Governments all over the world made promises that getting vaccinated would solve everything. The "lets get back to the things we love" advert is a good example.
We've had two years of the pandemic and yet i have not seen any specific CV19 messaging targeting general health / fitness / diet etc, yet we are still bombarded with the same junk food adverts. We know obesity / fitness / general health is a factor in hospitalisations.
The currently cases that result in death are largely either in unvaccinated or people who may well have died from any other respiratory virus. The number of people who are dying purely of covid alone is very close to zero. Zero is something we’ll never achieve.
If that happens soon I'll either have to try and get my third dose I had in the UK (only have handwritten details of my batch number etc.) added to the AIR or have a 4th dose soon after my 3rd, I guess. Though hopefully if the third dose is mandatory they'll say you have to have had it or have had your 2nd dose less than say 5 months ago to remain considered fully vaccinated.It seems a mandatory third dose will be happening.

I agree that a focus on a healthy lifestyle and better choices in life would be a great idea
Yes But 32 out of 36 were double vaxxed which is the point that the CHO failed to make (Or did not want to make)Of those that died, 12 were women and 20 were men
