Said Bendigo case was actually a resident of Bendigo who tested positive in Melb.  

Anyway, can a wall be built around Melbourne?

Literally less than week after restrictions were said to be lifting the traffic returned to near normal levels. Kinda pissed me off.

I'm hearing reports that 86 cases of Coronavirus will be reported in Victoria in the last 24 hour period, that's getting closer to the 100 mark.

Did anyone see that cu*t in Broady on 7news last night?
We are never getting rid of this stupid virus cause of him and others that share his outlook.

Some of my cohorts have observed a lot of the English Second language/and or openly hugs and kisses types flouting any regard for social distancing. Clearly some either don't get it (the point not Covid), or are espousing the DILLIGAF approach to the seriousness, and the wider community expectations here.

Perhaps the fine needs to immediately made $10,000, because IMHO clearly the stick for non compliance is ineffective.
To ensure sufficient capture of offenders flouting the rules, a payment worth the old fine amount should get paid to dob in those flouting once found guilty and fined for said offence. Yes i know, seemingly dobbing is un Australian. I get that.
However in the current environment where clearly some member of the Australian community are taking a Zero Fcks given approach, then we need incentives to more accurately wield said stick.

Thoughts??

If the choice is between dobbing in or a spreading virus, to hell with the old Australian tradition. Dob the irresponsible idiots in - it's a community service.

Border Wars?  This from Queensland

Victorian Money (property investment and other expenditure/investment) keeps the economy in QLD running especially so with tourism.  This tourism is not happening at the present time and that is haveing a poor impact in operators across the state.

Several Melbourne postcodes are going to be locked down from tomorrow night for a month, in an attempt to contain the community transmission which is going on.

Now that the suburbs have been named, I demand to see Dan on the 6PM news, with a throwback to the above mentioned Ftard (he's not a C, as those are useful and necessary things).

What I demand to see, this guy made example of and be Covid shamed by name and address on national prime time television, in such a way that it would make fat shaming look like a compliment. I Dan to point at the Ftard and say that its because of dickheads like this who are smeg it up for everyone else (those exact words used to the audience).

F this bloke and all his ilk similarly acting.

Its Covid FFS - its Fking GLOVES OFF!!

He is a young smart@rse of Middle Eastern appearance who had his big moment on 7 News. According to him, COVID-19 was all bullsh1t, and he was going to continue hugging anyone he wanted to, and anyway young people didn't catch it or die from it, and if he was a carrier and infected some elderly person or persons it wasn't his problem and he didn't care.

He'd be well suited to concrete boots and a high tide.

Maybe the footage doesn’t show the full story. More coppers than those protesting.

Looks pretty crowded to me.  Thrown them in quarantine/prison immediately if they won't pay fines.

I can't see the AFL GF with crowds in attendance at Melbourne, at this stage, It's a long way to go I know, but the thing is, it takes a hell of a long time to get the infection numbers down as well!

A bit sad really and we shouldn't joke about it.

When this thread first started, I was assured that quarantine centres at Woomera, Curtain or a purpose built facility along the TAR were not needed.

To read what is happening in Vic with hotel security proves that people can't be trusted to do the right thing and that remote facilities can isolate the virus better than walls of a building.

Ridiculous idea. There are 300,000 people in the quarantined postcodes, housed, fed, with family and so on. How long do you think it would take to organise such facilities in the places you mention? Then there is the delicate question of getting people there and back. And don't forget the perennial problem with severe punishment; whilst increasing the motivation not to be caught being nefarious certainly increases the motivation not to commit the act in the first place, it also concurrently increases the motivation to hide your activity if you've already been doing it, or, as with many criminal acts, the desire to do ouweighs the fear of punishment. These poor souls already live in these areas. The so called 'crime' has been committed, would you punish them by sending them out to nether-nether for a decision make months, years, decades ago? Imagine some irresponsible fool many kilometres away tests positive so next thing you know, you're out to Woomera, living in a cage, drinking rank desert water and eating boiled rice, no entertainment but a black and white T.V. showing nothing but the A.B.C, all contact with loved ones cut off, because of a postcode! The stupidity of your idea is beyond belief.

Some of these 300,000 people would never have been infected if the return pax were quarantined like the wuhan Qantas pax in Darwin or Christmas Island.

It is well matched by the idiocy of your response.  Cages, boiled rice, rank desert water, what rubbish.

ANR was not suggesting 300,000 people be despatched to the never never (not nether nether), it is simply impossible.

But it is obvious that we are going to have to do something better than put people in a hotel and trust them to do the right thing.
