The corona virus COVID-19

His religion has nothing to do with anything, quite frankly, it's none of our business what religion he is.
Unfortunately, that is not entirely true. You only have to go back to Abbott and the plebiscite on same-sex marriage. The yes case had overwhelming support both nationally, and in his electorate. Instead of acting on behalf of his electorate ( as he as elected to do), he didn't vote yes, but abstained. Why? because he lets a gang of old bachelors based in Rome tell him what the rules are. Let's try a hypothetical - would you want someone like Margaret Court as your local member ( let alone as PM)? I sure wouldn't.

I think you are being very unfair @Valvegear.  Both Abbott and Court make that gang of old bachelors seem like unusually progressive attendees of the Byron Bay folk festival.

Had reason to consult a funeral home yesterday. Their business for over 70s, was done 70% since Covid.
The assumption being many would be nursing home residents and due to fewer visitors, common infections weren’t being transmitted.

Anzac long weekend cancelled in Perth. 3 day snap lockdown because infected people were out and about between April 17-21...

Oh no I hope people have had  their vaccine...

One case has just arrived in Melbourne, having become infected at a quarantine hotel in Perth. He is not the only one to have been infected there.
He has flown to Melbourne (on an A330 with about 280 people on board) so who knows what will happen next.
Despite this latest one, we still persist in this nonsense of hotel quarantine. As Einstein said, "Stupidity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."

I'm not arguing the point, but what would you use apart from Hotel Quarantine?

Cabins at Avalon airport would be a far better option than hotel quantine

Cabins at Avalon should of been built already.

Well if it isn't Hotel Quarantine, there has to be some sort of guards on duty to make sure some people don't decide to wander, whether it be Military or whatever...

A fence a gate a few security guards, what could possibly go wrong.

Can anyone explain how it's unsafe for Servicemen and Women to march on ANZAC Day or attend the dawn Service whilst 85,000 people sit on top of each other for a football game?
The government has, to date, been unable to satisfy my curiosity

YM-Mundrabilla
Simple; the government has no idea. I raised this same question in a letter to The Age earlier this month. Others have followed suit. The march and the football are both outdoor events, but there has been a deafening silence from all relevant government departments.

However, it has to be remembered that Sport runs Victoria - the AFL can basically demand what it wants and get it. People can be denied the use of a public park for months so that we can pay an obscene amount of yours and my money to stage an F1 Grand Prix. The authorities always tell us about the benefits to Victoria, and steadfastly refuse to provide any evidence of costs versus what we receive. The Tennis Centre has had squillions spent on it (our money again) so that pampered players can have five star treatment.

The RSL used to have quite a deal of clout in years past, but that seems to have gone now. If the often-offensive Bruce Ruxton was still the State President of that body, his voice would be echoing off the nearby hills and buildings and the government would hear it.

Yes, Mr. Ruxton was always one to make a noise when it needed to be done. The idea that those who have given to society should be denied their greatest, most profound pleasure, while the circus of sport must go on is an offence of the highest order.

Which makes the decision by that CLOWN over in the West most unusual, Perth going into a snap three day lockdown for what, 2 or three cases?? really?? thus denying 1,000s of people to pay their respect at various Anzac Day Services!

No name, but the fact is there is no outbreak! Valvegear, I have always said I am in favour of Lockdown when the situation requires it, this situation certainly does not require it.

How do you know how many cases there are?  Given your incredible insights, I'm sure the WA health authorities would greatly appreciate your information.  You should give them a call.

FWIW, WA did exactly the right thing IMHO.  Within 24hrs we've learnt the guy - who had no reason to even suspect he'd been exposed until 2 days ago (having *completed* 14 days quarantine) - has had well over 100 contacts across two states, and infected at least 2 people independently (that we know of so far).  That cannot be contact traced in a timely fashion.

We all know where sticking your head up your donkey leads: Melbourne last year.  But then I guess that's all Dan Andrew's fault.

Has it even occurred to you that his quick action is designed to prevent an outbreak? The way you write, it seems that you want an outbreak to really get moving before action is taken.

Well if you take the NSW situation, we have had mini outbreaks like this, and we have not gone into a citywide lockdown, it all comes back to how good the contact traces are, I am indeed aware that an action such as this is to deter a major outbreak from happening.

Valvegear, if this turns into something bigger (which I hope it isn't), I'll be the first to put up my hand and say yep, I was dead wrong on this one!

When is Scroto going to do something anything.,he's done nothing as usual.

Immigration detention centres another solution, he chose to do nothing, it's all too much for our PM to make decisions, he is totally inept Scroto is unfit he's detrimental to this country.

No new community cases of COVID-19 in Perth today, one in Hotel Quarantine.
