If you're looking for donations, put me down for $10.

Make it $100 if it's somewhere without internet access.

I haven't been following the news in the ACT much.

Why are they having such a problem controlling their outbreak?

You'd think with a small population thats way over the national average in the tertiary educated and income and 92% first and 63% second dosed they'd have had this controlled weeks ago.

It's a crap analysis.  No age adjustment or adjustment for other factors.

I'm surprised NJ and NY death rates are still so high given the high vaccination rate and the fact that they held the record for deaths prior to the period the graph illustrates. 

You'd expect NJ and NY to being quite well under the above scenario given the large numbers of at risk people who died in the initial stages of the pandemic.

Greece is just under 60% fully vaxxed. Higher in the islands.

But Seriously, I don't know what all the fuss is about.

While one wouldn't travel to anywhere where it's raging, with a poor or overwhelmed health system and stupid attitude, if you're fully vaxxed yourself, places where the infection has been more or less static for the last 12 months should be fine. There's no one fully vaxxed in hospitals unless they have underlying health conditions or are simply old and very frail.

qld local cases over the last week in reverse order without a lock down (for the known obvious reasons)
1,0,1,2,6,1,4

what number of cases is her trigger for lock down without it being clear the only reason she hadn't was because of the football?

At what stage is it too late and Southern Qld joins NSW, VIC, ACT and Auckland in the slog to 80% vaccines?

I don't think any state has locked down with as few as 6 cases spread across the state. It's when you get 3-4 cases in a specific area.

I may be wrong.

Southern Qld should be pursuing 80% plus vax  regardless of their infection status . Too late doesn't compute.

We locked down 3 (or was it 4?) times for a week with one case, then masks for a week, then absolute freedom. 

And it worked. 

Interesting to watch the NSW political fall out from afar too.

You need to realize that NY and NJ both have dense populations, and that's a high correlation to infection. That their governors purged  populated the nursing homes with covid positive patients, and truncated their Medicare billings  lives unfortunately was not sufficient to reduce the population that lives and works in close proximity.

Yep, it's getting bad.

seriously I think one can put it down to lockdown fatigue, idiots and business failing to enforce mask and check in laws.

I went to my local woolies metro yesterday.

same thing the day before, 3 out of five failing to check in.

It amazes me some Australians can be so careless as to have family gatherings, parties, and super-spreader events in the middle of this outbreak. They appear not to have learned much from our example. Take 700,000 dead people and multiply by the number of family members and you have many millions of people severely affected beyond just being dead. For many of them their lives will forever change, losing parents, siblings, spouses, even children. And at this point, entirely unnecessary in the USA, and soon to be in Australia. About the only good part of it is the weeding out effect of removing nutcases, covidiots, and a fair share of Trump voters. But the costs to society and the rest of us far outweigh that benefit. Just scroll through and check the ages of these covidiots, almost all are 30-70 years old, and many are parents. Beyond stupid.

If you had been locked down for 250 days in 18 months and seen such a low death toll, then you might understand.

My daughter has locked herself in her bedroom.

Yesterday she made a legitimate house moving visit to her old house to pick up her bike and essential stuff for study.

She had no contact with her flatmate other than talking through a closed window.

Today he told her that his coworker just tested positive and he's waiting on a test. So she's waiting on his test.

Bit of overkill on her part I think but some Victorians are trying to do the right thing.

I do wonder how many of the infected actually get really sick, as opposed to cold or flu like symptoms that might cause you to stay home a couple of days in the pre-pandemic world. 

We have no stats on how many of the infected are already partially or fully vaxed. The same for hospital admissions.

Today at Dan's presser, a member of the victorian public answered that very question. He had "mild" symptoms back last year. Short breath etc He's still suffering long covid 18 months later.

And yes we do have records of those in hospital that are partially or fully vaxxed. Do you actually ever tune in to these press briefings?

Wait! Gladys had a strategy? 

Strange that I seem to remember that she failed to lock down all of Sydney and missed a few partygoers that lived outside Bondi. Who would have thought that people from "those LGAs " would be mixing with the Bondi set.?

Maybe Dan should have stopped the GF being held in Perth?

Certainly he should have anticipated protesters using their phones to play cat and mouse with the cops. Maybe they learned to do that after Sydney's cops massed in one part of town to stop Sydney's protests.

We'll never know.

And surely you realise that the long lockdown last year was necessary? If you remove 800 people that died under Commonwealth care, then the death toll from that first outbreak was a relative handful.

Without that lockdown and with no vaccinations, the death and severe illness toll in the general public would have been off the charts.

Without this current lockdown, and with a Gladys light lockdown, we'd be up to our necks in the dead and ill.

Melbourne is not Sydney. People here move around for work, regardless of their social status or ethnicity.

We tried locking down certain LGA's last time. It didn't work.

Yes we're tired of the lockdown, but intelligent people know that it's needed. Stupid people just want the nasty bug to not exist because they want to walk down the road to the shops and not hide their lipstick behind a mask.

Stupid people question the severity of the disease.

Here is a typical ABC story. The woke brigade have made a hero out of someone who has done nothing more than make unproven allegations against someone. Gets pissed, goes back to the ministers office for a root, wakes up with her pants around her ankles and cries rape. If he is found not guilty (as he most certainly will be) will the ABC slut shame her?

I hope she is charged for wasting police time and that they guy she has accused sues her for deformation. Julia will need to find someone else to help with her man hating group.

It is not Dan's fault that many Victorians are fuckwit covid deniers. On a positive note there will be less of them alive going by the great infection numbers you are now achieving. But of course it is all Gladys fault...

Why would ABC News QLD broadcast what Dan and his clowns would say. They do often give a sound bite and certainly publish the key numbers. I still read the Age and the focus is still on infections and deaths.
