And what's the source.
Convenient that there is a rumour of a lockdown due to the new strain a day after National talk about that front line should be vaccinated immediately.

Seems more likely to try and rile up fear that Labour aren't doing enough.

Yeah - heard that from two rando sources at the pub on Sunday. So I wouldn't be surprised. I've got the beer in, and the kids aren't due back in Dunners until next month.

Probably nothing in it - but if it is, then we go fast and go hard again.

Just think - What Would Donald Do? And do the opposite...

COVID-positive Tennys Sandgren flies into Melbourne for the Australian Open. Great.

I was thinking the other day if this new strain got into the community there would be no doubt of an instant lockdown. The scale of the lockdown would be the question in terms of it being regional or national.

I think there's something to be said about the fact that despite the steady flow of infected arrivals we haven't had another outbreak in the country.

...yet a person I know just got out of MIQ and said that whilst you had to stay in your rooms most of the time, gloves where literally off if you used the smoking area - and cigs and lighters were frequently passed around between detainees of varying tenure.

I suppose the priority is keeping the country safe, rather than those entering the country. Or maybe it's one of those things where the additional policing required would only elevate worker's exposure to potentially infected arrivals.

Who knows really, what we do know is we're enjoying a long stretch without community transmission.
