Covid-19 Revisit

oh dear. NSW has now had local infections. I heard there were 5 this arv, but then a brief comment that it reached 17 already. Didn't take long. If NSW cannot sort this soon, it's likely harsher measures will be taken. WA is waiting to see what happens...

Ao.. this arvo 28 cases from the new cluster. Wonder what it will be tomorrow.? WA and QLD and TAS have announced new restrictions.... next few days could be very interesting indeed. Not to mention the USA is consistently identifying record numbers of deaths and new infections, daily.
Germany had 3700 deaths today ? South Korea is in lockdown.. Sweden says it failed in it's policy to manage the virus.. so friends..??

Fingers crossed we don't slacken off...

I did think border openings were done rather in a rush, incl overseas visitors. Can they not get quarantine right YET?

Number is now 38 ... in NSW. (as far as I know?)

Each state is taking it's own measures so I'll not try to explain them.

Some other cases have come to light, in other states, in Quarantine. But the latest outbreak seems to be an American strain, brought in by a person who has been traced.

Humans are imperfect and will remain so.

It is a worry. I'd be staying home if at all possible.

Bad time of year for this new outbreak to occur. People are more likely to defy restrictions.

Personally? xmas is just another day. I'm not a christian and I don't care to be a rabid consumer... but hey ENJOY.!!

Wife is still down there with the kids. Due back tomorrow arvo. I had to come back earlier as I was supposed to work today (now even that got cancelled).

I hope they allow her back in.

you need to keep busy so you dont worry to much my friend :meet
lets see ... today I got the kids their presents from santa, then i bought a dishwasher .. then I installed the dishwasher ... later i have to do my weekly shop, is that busy enough?

I am uncertain what to get for my grocery shopping cause if the wife and kids are forced into lockdown, then i don't need half as much as what I usually get, and this is the last chance to shop before xmas so it'll be even worse. There is also no point in buying a xmas turkey and ham if I'm going to be home alone for xmas.

we had a look at qld's website to try and get a pass ... but the site says that if you get a pass you must fly. Nothing about driving.

She's got a fully loaded car with 2 kids to get home, flying is not an option.

Fuck! I hope they make it into Qld! What a fucking disaster!

another news site i read says queensladers have until 1am on Tuesday morning to get home ... if that is correct, she should be fine.

I wish the govt's website was a little clearer. Who ever is in charge of keeping that page up to date should be sacked. It's as clear as mud

I am guessing wify should not waste any time getting back to Qld!
shes now driving right through. Had planned on stopping in Port Maquarie for the night to give the kids a break, they'll be going stir crazy, but the way the media is reporting it and the rate information keeps changing, we've decided it best if she keep going. They're probably still going to have to have a covid test when they get here and self isolate until they get the result but at least that way, if everyone comes back clear, we'll be able to have xmas together
