The corona virus COVID-19

 
  doyle Deputy Commissioner

Stage 4 probably super markets chemist doctors and stay at home

Instead of shock ads we just needed high numbers and deaths
Who would have thought

387 of the cases are unknown source and under investigation which is not great. so almost 70% of the new cases are new sources?

It sounds as if he is not announcing stage 4 at this stage, which IMO, is stupid to say the least...

Gladys is making all the right signals about restrictions being tightened. We all know the pubs and clubs in our local areas clearly not doing the right thing. The self regulatory approach was commendable but some business people are just not able to do the right thing, and this will be at their very own expense and detriment.

As I write this, there are still people trying to smuggle themselves into NSW in the boot of cars. I think every truck and container needs to be opened up and checked or somehow scanned.

I feel that NSW should be shut down every weekend starting from Friday afternoons, although I have seen pubs at capacity on a Thursday night.

If any messaging needs to be sent, it is not the negative Grim Reaper style, but a positive and obvious one of self-responsibility and responsibility to others, cancellation or deferral of unnecessary travel, social distancing, and hygiene.

NSW Govt is being utterly reckless in not closing pubs, clubs and casinos.  But they control the NSW Govt, so no surprises there.

It looks like it's well and truly worked its way into the aged care sector now. We know from international experience that's a big, big problem.

Went to local Collingwood Coles today. I would say 75% of people wearing masks, myself included. It seems to me the fitter and healthier people are the more likely they are to wear a mask. Young ladies in yoga pants almost 100% adherence to wearing masks. Less well off looking families, overweight, with overweight kids, buying boxes of Coke and other sugary goods, least likely to wear masks.

Boomers/Retirees about 50/50 and often looking bewildered that so many people are now wearing them.

Forget the deaths and the economic impacts, the worst potential for long-term damage to our nation will be the possibility of the shift from societal responsibilities to US-style individual rights becoming entrenched.

The police are not fining them?

I will not be wearing a mask another crazy idea from Daniel Andrews where CMO and other senior health officials have advised there is no point.  275 new cases overnight shows no signs of slowing?
It's plateauing which is a good thing.
Carnot
I was going to question this view when you posted it, but gave you and Victoria the benefit of the doubt.

I guess it depends on your definition of plateau, but for me the infection numbers are just oscillating according to the quantity of testing done.

I just read that Victoria are not going to stage four? Is that right?

Chairman Dan needs to go and visit the governor and let somebody else run the show over there - if there was ever a plot in the first case, that muppet has lost it.

He is acting in accordance with medical advice. Unlike many people posting here, he doesn't think he knows everything, and he asks experts, and takes their advice on board.
  ANR Chief Commissioner

His appointing private security that was ill trained triggered all of this.

The nation is only as strong as the weakest link.

No wonder Anastascia Pinochet has been ruling her territory with an iron fist and has kept her borders shut tight.

Well the advice he’s getting so far doesn’t seem to be all that effective, maybe three days ago he should have listened to Tony Bartone.

I learnt today that a colleague’s son is a doctor at St Vincent’s Hospital my colleague said today that he and many others wrote to the Premier more than a week ago requesting stage 4 - it seems the opinions are there, he’s just choosing whom he listens to.

Come one now, use your noggin; of course he's choosing who he listens to. He's taking advice from the state's Chief Medical Officer and his staff. He doesn't have a cat in hell's chance of listening to every Tom Dick and Harry, who all have gratuitous advice for him.

Tony Bartone is hardly any ‘Tom Dick and Harry’, nor seemingly would be a bunch of doctors from the front line hospital.

The CMO’s deputy in Victoria shouldn’t even have a job, let alone be heard.

Once he starts with a lot of opinions, where does it stop? He spends most of the day listening and the answer is total confusion. And just to keep you up to speed, doctors at St Vincents are a dime a dozen; there are scores of them.

I keep forgetting that you're a medical expert.

justapassenger
Yeah, 'cause those societal responsibilities are working so well in Victoria! Looks like around 9/10 people don't give a fark about anyone but themselves and think heading to Chemist Warehouse for a packet of glucose jellybeans is more important than safeguarding their community / society.
