interesting and sad data  

Just 388 people aged under 60 with no underlying health conditions have died of Covid-19 in England's hospitals since the start of the pandemic, NHS data has showed. 

The figures show that 1,979 previously healthy people died in hospitals in England after testing positive for Covid-19 between April 2 and December 23.

Just 338 of these people were aged 40 to 59, with another 44 aged between 20 and 39, and just six under the age of 19, according to the data.

Meanwhile 45,770 deaths were recorded among those with pre-existing conditions, of which 21 were aged under 20, 263 were between 20 and 39 and 2,926 were aged between 40 and 59.

Swab result - Covid negative. Just a coincidental illness. Means I can leave the house! Hooray! Have cancelled ambulance shift for Sunday because still feeling under the weather but back out again nex

On behalf of everyone else here on Trannies (apologies to those who I purport to be speaking for who don't share my view), mate, would you mind putting a lid on your intentionally inflammatory comment

Thought I'd check in with you all. Have to say I'm struggling a bit with redundancy, the virus and its knock on effects. Trying to stay positive but feeling quite 'isolated' over here now and starting

Interesting to also note that 25% of poms have an underlying health condition.

Personally, I don't agree with Wollongong being on that list at all and realistically its hard to justify having the Shire on there either.  But thats the decision that Gladys made and the flow on effects of that decision have impacted plenty.

Yes saw that this morning.  Amazing how things change in a couple of days.  2 Days ago there wasn't any reason for listing Wollongong as there hadn't been a case.  Today,  theres plenty of reason to have Wollongong listed.

Just makes me glad I got out when I did.

Reckon cricket Australia may have jumped the gun having the 3rd test in Sydney

Sydney. Outdoor gatherings limited to 30 ...except of course a ticketed event which will allow 24,000 to attend.

SCG Test attendance forecast 24,000..

Reckon they can have the Test in Sydney but having any spectators is a horrible decision considering that it doesn't appear that they have the current outbreak under control and that some people in NSW just don't seem to care.

However a test cricket match with 24k people - No problem 

 

Given they couldn't stop 9 (or is it 12) people from the northern beaches from going into the CBD for a wedding, how the hell are they going to vet those 24K people per day to make sure they're not from a locked down hotspot?

Tell Gladys shes dreaming.

I completely agree that luck, or lack of, has played a big part for all of us.  And the fact Australia is so removed from most of the rest of the world.

NSW looks like their luck might be coming to an end.  
 

I hope I’m wrong.

Yep as much as I have applauded their efforts on most fronts I have said previously I don’t get the reluctance to mandate masks on public transport and indoor public environments.

As per usual though it seems pubs clubs and churches are the hot houses.

Yep. I’m not sure what we are at down here with no cases (60 days?). And its still Masks indoors.  
 

coles Bunnings Kmart etc....  masks. Not sure about churches etc...  

its the Middle road.  You don’t want to get to masks at all times.  Walking the dog at 8pm with a mask on with no one around is stupid. But we had to do it.

Oh well it was nice whilst it lasted in Victoria. 
 

 

 

Sydney germs finally made it to Victoria. 

Duckit. 

Northern Beaches people have no idea what "stay at home" means, and GB didn't help matters by still allowing so much movement . 

Mandatory masks in supermarkets and such are so complacent here. I do, but im in the minority.

I ducked out (in the Gong) today to the corner shop and the post office.  I whacked a mask on going inside both.  6-10 ppl in each counting staff and customers.  Mostly over 50s.  I was the only mask.  Within 2kms of Figtree Grove.  I have concluded people still don't care, even with it confirmed in our midst.

24k a day at the cricket, coming from all points, with this attitude should keep things in check.

Somebody can correct my timeline If I've missed something but...

How is it that the Blue Mountains Pharmacy was notified that they had a covid positive staff member, shut the pharmacy, performed a deep clean, announced the positive result on social media and reopened all before NSW Health publicly announced that the pharmacy had a positive case?

My understanding is that the Pharmacy reopened at midday but NSW health didn't announce it till at least a couple of hours after that

Good one coming from a Melbournite. Last time I checked we are all Australians and the virus comes in from overseas and our need to trade with the rest of the world and be compassionate to allow Australians to return home. Let's not play the state vs state card. Let's help each other

I just dont get why people have such an issue wearing masks when the health professionals & scientists say wearing masks are effective?

Ask the guitar shop up here!  They seem to know more than the health professionals...

If people can just stay home when it's in the local community, it doesn't spread. We've been two months with no community transmission here, but people in NSW don't seem to get that yet

The thing I find most amazing is that people seem surprised that people flaunt the rules. 
Of course they will, some  feel they are above the rules, don’t believe in COVID or don’t care. That’s life. 

People will do the wrong thing, people will make mistakes and the other 98% of us will try and do the right thing yet still wear the consequences of the other 2%. 
Welcome to “society” 

And H, I assume you meant to call us Sydney “truckers” just like the MELB ones. :lol:

Sydney slackers? Or something like that. 

Forgive me for being a bit cross but we've been through this before and don't really want to revisit it, I thought people might have learned by now but it seems not. Wear a mask and wash your hands, stay home if you're told to. Not hard really.

My post was more amazement at the apathy of the vunerable.  A few obese people and a few 20+ years older than me, the lady in front at the PO was both.  I'd likely have minimal issues with the virus but was wearing a mask more with them in mind, and solidarity for the cause.

It's blowing out again everywhere including Vic.

Our youngest lives in Croydon.  Family Tassy trip mid-Jan def a goner now.

How long will this crap go on?  Could be years. Still can't see an end-game under the current approach.  Even with a vaccine, how many people will refuse to have it?  Seems to me at some stage, they'll have to take the brakes off and let it run its course.

There seems to be a delay with the information going up on the site...at least some of the places are open and honest enough to post on social media. Rhodes Waterside posted up about their case prior as well.

I cannot believe the people going around Sydney shopping centres without masks. 😡

They would have id say. Dan gave a couple of days notice for Victorians to get home, nicely asking people who were travelling from there to self isolate for 14 days from when they were there. 

Guess they thought sales were more important.  Or, they were there on the 12th (this thing started on the 11th).

With the information they must surely have by now I don’t know why they don’t have a traffic light system for places of likely infection. 
Red being pubs clubs, eateries and churches (if that’s the case) 

Orange for shopping centres 

Green for outdoor spaces 

then mandate PPE requirements based on these

Apparently the 3 involved hadn’t been out of the State so either Vic still has it or they got it from someone else who had been in NSW.

So case in point as to why we can’t rely on people to do the right thing. 
Today I was selling a surf ski. 
Guy came to meet me in the shire. Bought the ski and as we were strapping it on the roof I ask if he has far to go. 
He is from Northern Beaches. 
I ask if he is supposed to be out?

His reply is “only if you believe in that shit” 

He also doesn’t trust the vaccine and won’t take it, and also thinks “they” think that the optimum population of earth is half a billion people and they are working to get rid of the rest of “us” 

I was glad I didn’t give him a discount, jumped in my car, sanitised to buggery then drive off.

Yes they are out there. :huh:

I would assume they'll be after that 70% herd immunity figure.  They know they won't get everyone.  Maybe the same as they should be doing with kids; you can choose not to be vaccinated, but only those that get vaccinated get the family tax benefit, etc etc.

Someone I know has been selling that line to me too. 

Calls it the "Great Reset".......... a consiracy of rich folks like Bill Gates to depopulate the earth, reset international travel, big events etc. 

Also mentioned "Agenda 21"

But will the 70% who are "immune" infect the 30% who aren't?  I've heard the vaccine won't stop us getting the virus but will just stop us getting sick from it ...

I’ll take the vaccine. I take the flu vaccine every year. I have had flu 2 out of last 3 years. Last years really knocked me. Vaccine will not erradicate COVId-19, it may lesson symptoms. Which should also lesson spread. 

Wifey and I are both in the "high risk" category and get the flu vaccine for free, so I wonder how early we'll be able to get it?
