31 May

Situation in Victoria is getting worse . Now have B1617 in 3 private residential nursing homes in Melbourne ( hells bells , workers are still allowed to work in more than one place , not compulsory to be vaxxed to work in these places , only about 1/2 the residents are vaxxed ( they are Grp 1A and should have been vaxxed months ago ), and people responsible for managing and setting standards in these private residential nursing homes & the vax rollout the Federal govt are incompetent . Vaxxing has been privatised , NOT being run by federal or vic state health depts, or GPs , they are private contractors !! (always a failure) - unbelieveable ….
Criminal incompetence by Federal Aged Care & Federal Health Ministers and the PM , they are responsible and have done nothing to avoid this despite a huge and expensive and expansive judicial inquiry which spelt out what had happen over 6 months ago.

5 Jun update

Summary --
Greater Melbourne's lockdown extended by another week ( minimum , B1617 = Kappa & and now Delta strain still spreading , there are still breaks in the known infection chains , more disturbingly the (indian) Delta strain has been found circulating and SE NSW is now on high alert because a few Melbourne families holidayed in SE NSW while infectious & sick with Delta).
Restictions in REGIONAL Victoria have not been extended in the same way as in Greater Melbourne , some regional Victoria restrictions have be relaxed.
B1617 is now in several residential care nursing homes in Melbourne , staff contracted and spread to several residents. Community is VERY ANGRY this has happened AGAIN despite all the promises by ScoMo , Hunt and Colbert that they would fix this and stop it happening again - clear nothing has been learnt , and the federal ministers responsible have chosen to do as little as possible ( nothing ).

People stood down in Victoria are getting big road blocks to getting Centrelink Emergency payments , and this time there is no JOBKEEPER to help their bossed keep them on. UNACCEPTABLE ScoMo.

Vic police are stopping fleeing Victorians from entering NSW & SA.

Vax blitz underway in Victoria ( all too late IMO as it takes weeks for 1st jab to give any protection , and people need 2 jabs to get "full" protection ).

Queensland and Victoria are moving ahead with building purpose quarantine facilities that will be Howard Springs clones.

There has been an outbreak of B1617 in a WA quarantine hotel in Perth , resulting in an entire floor being evacuated .
There is another covid ship in Kwinana Port , some crew evacuated to hospital in a bad way.

Federal vax rollout has been a shambles so far.
Turns out in aged and disability care ( Grp1a !!! which should have been completed using Pfizer vax ) nearly half residents remain unvaxxed and even less workers )
Add insult to injury - workers are still allowed to work across multiple facilities and outside the sector despite the huge judicial enquiry telling federal govt ( Mins Hunt ( health ) , Colbert ( Aged and Seniors ) , and PM , this needs to be outlawed .
Plus workers in these are still not being ordered to be vaxxed , IMO it needs to be made a non-negotiable CONDITION OF EMPLOYMENT - no vax = no job / no access to facility.

5 million have had one AZ or Pfizer jab.
QLD , NSW , Victoria are all establish mass vax centres in hope of getting more people vaxxed , however lots of people over 50 who are not currently offered Pfizer and only have AZ offered to them are cancelling appointments and not showing up for their jabs , this is because in all states except Victoria , Australians have looked at the risk of catching covid and suffering hospitalisation due to blood clots and decided AZ is not worth the risk - my wife and I are in this camp.
Offer us Pfizer and we'll be keen to be vaxxed , NOT so for AZ. So like millions of others in Gp2a and Gp2b we are holding off on being vaxxed and demanding access to Pfizer , preferably as vax at home if we can get it.

That's 5 million have had only one jab, very few have been FULLY vaxxed . So under 10% are fully vaxxed , and most these are with the 2nd rate AZ vax.

16 June Update

AMA reports that there has been so little flu in Australia since May 2020 that they think the Flu is extinct in Australia now, they put this down to lockdowns , compliance with social distancing , mask wearing and people self quarantining when they felt flu symptoms .

Greater Melbourne lockdown relaxed , all Victoria except the snowfields are now on similar restrictions.
The 25km travel limit has been lifted for Melbournians - this has pleased businesses and holiday venues in Regional Victoria greatly.
However it has been mandated by Vic Health that Victorian wishing to go to and stay at the snowfields must return a negative test before going there ( this is because o/seas similar areas and venues have resulted in superspreader events and catalysed national and internation waves and huge outbreaks).
Victoria has run out of Pfizer vaccine and is now rationing this vaccine to only people who have health issues .

Wild weather & flooding continues in Victoria , 10s of 1000s of homes remain w/out mains electricity and are likely to remain "in the dark" for up to another 3 weeks while fallen trees and down powerpoles are removed , and the grid in these areas is rebuilt.
Much of flooded regional Victoria is now having it's own spectacular spider plague.
https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/worldnews ... se-plague/

SA has reopened border with Victoria .

NSW's 6 week run of zero local covid transmission has been broken with a local mystery case in Bondi area of Eastern Sydney , consequently Greater Sydney is now on VERY HIGH ALERT and a testing blitz is underway while contact tracers try to determine how this gentleman was infected. It may be a consequence - he works for the airport as an intl aircrew transport driver . Worry is he has been in the community for 2 or 3 days while infectious and been to several very popular (crowded) venues.

Meanwhile the cold snap is slowing the spread of NSW's grain-belt mouse plague . Southern NSW and as far north as the Hunter was hit by wild gales and storms overnight ( very spectacular displays of chain lighting here overnight with gales and heavy rain. Bright and sun but VERY WINDY and CHILL this morning here ( 17 June ).

Federal Health has finally agreed to allow and bulkbill vaccinations in the home for those who are at risk if they have to go to public vax hubs, their local GP vax clinic, or a hospital , and for those Australian's who are home bound.

18 June Update.

NSW
Another quarantine system leak in Sydney , this time a driver employed to transport intl aircrews to quarantine has been infected with the Delta variant and been actively socialising and moving about in eastern Sydney and in Wollongong for over a week while infectious.

There are now 4 cases of local covid transmission in Eastern Sydney and today NSW Health imposed restriction in Greater Sydney and masks are mandated again in Greater Sydney.

People have been infected by him indoors and outdoors with the most fleeting contacts.

FEDERAL
Yet another change to the vaccine rollout in Australia, it's now advised that no one under 60yo get the AZ vaccine , this means Gp1a , Gp1b , and people 50 to 60 yo , are being advised to get Pfizer jabs , unless they have already had their 1st jab of AZ with no severe reactions , so now my grp ( 60 to 70 yo ) are only ones still only offered AZ unless their doctor advises against it.

So my wife and I will hold off and continue voluntary self iso at home for a while yet , as we don't need the risk of blood clotting due to AZ and will holdout til more Pfizer is available ( in short supply in Australia ) and it's made available to all age groups. Not enough covid in the community here to warrant the risk IMO.
Also waiting for the Federal Health Dept to establish in-the-home vaccination on request as we consider it too risky to go the GP vax clinic , or a mass vax hub , or a hospital to get the jabs.

20 JUNE UPDATE.

NSW - BONDI DELTA QUARANTINE LEAK continues to spread in Sydney and in Wollongong ( now in a materity ward :( ).
Known cases are doubling every 2 days. ==> R = 2.54 at least.
Mask mandates extended to ALL INDOORS venues and all public transport in Sydney and Wollongong & Shellharbour.
(All SE Sydney).

QLD - another intl flight attendant has become sick with cov19 after serving 14 days in mandatory hotel quarantine ( not believed to be DELTA variant - small mercies ).
QLD has stiffened up checks on people from NSW and Victoria , and has turned around domestic airlines from Melbourne and Sydney airport.

SA has closed border to NSW.

Meanwhile WA has now moved to FULL COVID NORMAL with 7 weeks of zero local covid transmission , joining ACT, Tas, NT, SA at COVID NORMAL status ( life as it was before the pandemic for residents and interstate visitors = no social distancing restrictions on WA residents and their border remains closed to NSW & Victoria.
