The QLD Chief Medical Officer has advised that the borders should remain closed for now, so yes I beleive the science. Also it was noted in the 3 step plan released a few weeks ago that July would be when travel restrictions would be reviewed, so there's nothing to say we won't be able to go outside the state from July onwards, though it may be September.I'm sorry I am a Queenslander and I don't support the closing of the border.There is no medical reason for it.That is the opinion of an expert in the field the deputy Commonwealth CMO who is a world renown epidemiologist.Yesterday an Adelaide professor of virology came out in support.Aren't we meant to believe the science?
In the last 2 months of lockdown QLD tourism is estimated to have lost $9 billion.If the border is closed until September there is another $18 billion lost.Tourism businesses will be decimated.So definitely not all business is supporting the closure.
In Australia’s tropical north, Kate Agrums was hopeful her river-cruise business would get an influx of tourists eager to spot crocodiles when the coronavirus lockdown began easing earlier this month.www.bloomberg.com
I can understand it's having a huge impact on buiness, which to me says the Premier and CHO must think it's prudent the border stays closed for now, otherwise she'd have QLD open for business.
