there is certainly more traffic on the road now than this time last year..

The banter at work here after todays 580 odd numbers is certainly changed to screw it - lets live with it.

Seems to be how it is going to be. Sadly lots of people are going to die from it first  :'(

I've thought there has always been more traffic on the roads here since this years lockdowns started compared to last year. Seems to be there are not the same amount of people that are complying to the lockdown restrictions this time around. I came across a lot of people last year that were not happy at having to do what was recommended. I know around here often different cars parked at some houses that don't live there, some of which are members of the unhappy lot. Think that there are the ones that want to curb the spred of this and the ones that just don't give a s**t now.

Yep, that's what will happen, and all the authorities are OK with it, as long as we can get as many vulnerable people as possible vaccinated first. At least that will lower hospital ICU admissions and not put such a huge workload on them.

People who decide not to get vaccinated, with no other health conditions, that may preclude them from being vaccinated, are just bloody selfish. They will end up clogging the hospital systems when we give the virus free reign with open borders and have no (or few) restrictions on travel or groups. Maybe they should be treated as second class citizens, a bit like smokers are now, when they go to the doctor.  >:D

I understand from my colleagues in Sydney that ICU's are already in overflow. At leads two extra ICU wards have opened up in one Sydney hospital. This is before we have opened up. Staff shortages are happening now. I'm very concerned about what will happen once they open up.The flow on effects are what people don't understand. Someone will have an event that normally they may survive with some ICU care (heart attack, cancer, car accident, etc etc).
Sitting in ED or wards waiting for an ICU bed will lead to lots of unnecessary deaths. It's a numbers game and it seems some of our politicians and countrymen are prepared to roll the dice. I feel next year might be quite difficult for a lot of people.

Everyone in my family except my 12 year old has has two jabs. She has had one and will be fully vaccinated by the end of September hopefully. Fingers crossed.

No way things are as bad as you stated. Gladys has said nothing on this. We'll be ok once we hit the magic 70% number. Things are going that good we no longer have to be told everyday just how good they are going. At least that's what Gladys told me.

The magic number is just a magic number. Still leaves a lot of people at risk of getting it, which in turn can easily over run the hospitals.
Once the population is let loose, the unvaccinated ( by medical reasons not choice ) will find it hard to safely mix with other people for fear anyone may be a carrier. So for them, the self imposed lockdown will continue.

But I do like reading these latest theories that the world is going to do a big reset and all the people who have been vaccinated will die in 2 yrs time…….like who is that smart to develop a vaccine….6 different types…that will take 2 yrs to kill you ??   ;D ;D

Oh, i dunno.

I'm pretty good with a chemistry set.

I mixed a combo the other day of a really aggressive degreaser and some Shit for removing barnacles from a boat.
The best Shit ever for cleaning chrome, but was a bit harsh on the skin..... fingers tingled afterwards for hours.  ???

If that couldn't kill covid, nothing could.
Hmmm, i could be onto something here.

Funny story ( sort of )…..45 yrs ago at a coal mine we had a brain tumour cluster ( or so they thought ).
One of the culprits ( so they thought ) was a cleaner called “turco solv “.    We used it for washing down big bearings, elect cabinets etc…..we used to wash our hands in the stuff…..anyway, we all went off for brain scans….they couldn’t find any ( problems or brains ), but it was found the “turco solv” was carcinogenic.
So, no more “turco solv “.
I personally know a bloke who recently had blood cancer…….coincidence ?  We’ll never know ??

But maybe it is not 6 seperate vaccines, it is one, in 6 different packages.   >:D
And maybe of the 2 doses, only one is real and the other a placebo which is why people are reacting differently. >:D

In 3 years time, if I'm still here I can say they were all wrong.

Hard to keep up at times when the so called Top Doctors want to disagree.    But then looking at the source of the story, just another beat up.

serious question - so its not listed yet
- but if it is listed as tier 1 (or whatever the worst is this week)- and you test neg - do you still have to wait the 14 day incubation period?

 In NSW we don’t have tier stuff, but if you were a close contact, it is a 14 day isolate regardless of test result.
Tier 2 is casual contact…same same as above.
Tier 3, the same.
