    Coronavirus

    Having now changed the recomendation for AZ to over 60's, they now have another decade of peeps wanting pfizer. There isn't enough to do the 40-49 at the moment, so it's a bit rubbish. The infintessimally small risk becomes slightly les the older you get, so now 60 is the new 50?

    Unpacking

    I hate unpacking. I wish that when I get home from a holiday all my stuff magically gets back into the cupboards all on it's own (washed as well)

    Coronavirus

    NSW - we have 2 cases of community transmission. We don't know where it came from. It's been out in the community infectious for a while. Thsi is extremely dangerous as it is highly infectious. NSW - it's the same genomic sequence as a traveller in hote quarantine - but we don't knwo the intermediate step and how it got out. It has been out there infectious in the community in many venues for ages. This is bad. Other States - shut the doors to Sydney hotspot people. Isolate isolate isolate! COVID 19 - I CBF anymore. GO about your business people, nothing to see
  8. This Saturday is this coming Saturday. Next Saturday is "the next Saturday" - which needs context. If I say I'm having a tooth out on Monday the 8th, so won't be up for a ride until the next Saturday...... thats the context. I think by common laziness, we dropped the "the"

    And yet still reserve the right to jump up and down when we put a short term halt on being "open" to a country with amasive outbreak, as we need to preserve "the unaliencable right to return home to your country..... (where you have a passport of convenience, so you can take advantage of our systems when it suits you only, or when you hedged your bets to make lots of money and it went pear shaped so you want to come home)"
  10. the $40 stubby holder is crazy. If you need a stubby holder to keep your beer cold for that long, you're doing it wrong.

    so no lockdown yet, but no spectators at the AFL derby this arvo - thats a big call and I'm surised he made it actually. Was thinking he'd announce a lockdown at fulltime. ....... Seems the guard and his roomies were also food delivery drivers.

    Coronavirus

    Becasue in this case, individuals decisions affect more than just themselves - either by being a carrier to those that cannot be vaccinated, or in enough numbers, giving States and Feds the reason to keep things shut down. Like speeding and drink driving. If we knew an individuals choice to drive drunk or speed was only going to affect them, so be it. But the chances their decision will affect others means there are laws around it, and consequences for breaking them.

    Interesting that in all the respondents here, most are over 50 and selling how they can get a shot. Anyone else here under 50? 🐢

    So now a PNG arrival made it into the bulk of the Brissy international terminal mixing with NZ bound peeps. Tested positive. (2 passengers, 1 positive, 1 negative) Oh yay. Lets see what happens........

    same here. Found one local clinic, and you have to go through the questionairre. Says you need to provide evidence of any yes answers. I'm only 45.

    Coronavirus

    I'm not upset so much as frustrated and saddened? So maybe upset. Didn't know about the others. Just hearing about vulnerble people not being able to access the vaccine, yet sporting people can. As someone who doesn't give a rats tossbag about watching sports as such, but has relatives overseas and vulnerable relatives here that can't get it, it is frustrating that anyone can be bought into jumping the queue, supported by the Govt, who made the rules themselves. .

    Coronavirus

    I can't even find a list of providers in this town. The link keeps taking me to a "oops not found" answer. Perhaps people would increase the take up if they were given an incentive. Right now, the govt keep saying no rush, we don't have it here, and even if you're vaccinated we won't change things such as borders. Olympians are being made to have it in order to participate in their lifestyle/job. If everyone elses employers made it mandatory, they'd be in like a shot.

    Coronavirus

    Based on all the questionaires, I am not eligible to make an appointment now. I would take a vaccine. Perhaps they need to offer another check box about "are you an entertainer who wants to go overseas?"
  21. Turts

    Coronavirus

    I'm in the opposite camp. We have people in fronline care, saving lives, people with critical needs who cannot get a vaccine. People who are actually putting their own health at risk to help others. People who cannot leave Australia to provide care to their family overseas, or attend funerals of loved ones. People who have lost their careers, livelihoods, homes and lives because of shutdowns which need to be maintained (or at least restricted) until the country is vaccinated. You are talking about peple who chose to play a sport for a living for their own personal benefit an

    Athletes getting priority to get a vaccine so they can travel to japan (going thorugh another wave) for the Olympics. WTF. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-04-27/australian-olympians-tokyo-olympics-to-be-given-covid-vaccine/100099222

    Coronavirus

    Or a multitude of other things, such as: - if the infected person didn't travel here - if the infected person was rmeoved to a special medi-hotel or such, and not in the "general population" - if they did rapid testing etc.

    The media I heard was he went overseas for a wedding. Came back, was in hotel quarantine. Was releasded. Spent a night with a woman and her children. Then severalnights at St Cathreines (?) then flew bakc ot Mleb to his family. The woman he stayed with got covid, so he was a close contact. Then they found he contracted it from his hotel neighbour. Has it changed?
