:lol: Of course, I am the problem. Because I am speaking out.

What are your thoughts on the disgrace that is happening in Victoria?
You're a problem if you're calling anyone who disagrees with you a pinko Marxist.

I personally think it sucks for Victorians who are returning, and that they should have been given more time (a couple more days) to get back and then had the cut off from then.
So you agree with preventing people from returning home?
And you wonder why no one takes you seriously...
Re-read what he has posted. He is in favour of a cut off. According to UncleFB it sucks for those caught up in this but if you shift the lock out by 2 more days then it isn't a problem anymore. 2 more days then you can prevent people from returning.
This type of response from you just reiterates Slim's point.

I didn't say that at all.

If that is true (and your assertion is unconvincing without, at least, a proper anecdotal study) why do you think that is? We can take all your assertions that it's all the LNP's fault as read, so what do you propose are the actual reasons?
Wtf is wrong with you? Seriously. Why would this be anyone's fault?

In the Melbourne 2nd wave the virus spread more quickly in poorer areas. Reasons suggested were higher casualisation of the workforce (meaning workers didn't have sick leave, had multiple jobs or were not able to work from home), bigger households living in smaller houses and people from non-English backgrounds not accessing COVID-19 health warnings and updates as quickly or effectively.
And in Sydney? Avalon is not usually considered lower socio-economic.
Did you even read my post before trolling? I was referring directly to the Berala cluster. Ffs.

The median property price for a house in Berala exceeds $1 million. The median rental for a house is nearly $500 per week. You need to do a little bit of research.

In the Sydney context, Berala and surrounding suburbs are still lower socio-economic areas.

Uh-uh.

According to the SEIFA study's "Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage" the NSW average is 1001 points (45th percentile). Greater Sydney is 1018 points ( %56). Berala, at 906 points (%11) is doing OK. The inner west has changed since you've been away. Newtown is the new Paddington.

Note that higher numbers = less socio-disadvantage.

No, I'm telling you that Berala is not Fairfield or Walgett.

Your Auburn/Villawood reference can go into the failed strawman bin.

So altogether there are 192 total active cases in NSW, with one person in hospital, zero deaths and zero people in ICU. Today I spent some time reading about what is currently happening in the UK and in California, and in the context of what is unfolding in those two jurisdictions it's almost embarrassing to be discussing the current outbreaks in NSW and Victoria. Certainly makes you feel very lucky to be living in Australia right now :thumbup:

Greg Hunt has already told Sky News that NSW will have four new cases today. Why bother with an 11am press conference if people are just going to leak the info when they feel like it?

It might be the most exciting time of each day for you but people like to have the news as soon as available. It also allows all those journos to be "hand picked " and ask their soft questions you have claimed.

4 cases in NSW today. But according to the Victorian Government all of NSW is one of the most dangerous places on Earth. A no go zone. A red zone.

4 new cases announced by Acting Premier Barilaro.

Still fewer tests than Victoria, despite NSW having more cases and a bigger population. Barilaro pleading for more people to get tested.

Mask wearing is now mandatory at the SCG test.

Multiple new suburbs are now banned from attending the SCG test. People from around the Berala area can't attend the cricket, but they can attend an A-League match.

This is now a genuine cluster-fvck.

Strange post.

Another day of low cases. Seems like we're a long way from cluster fudge.

I get the reason for harsher rules for the cricket - its a much longer potential exposure time.

Calm down, I was referring specifically to the cricket. Yesterday they slashed the number of people attending by half. They have added new banned suburbs fro the SCG on each of the past two days. Today, Hazzard announced that masks are now mandatory at the SCG whereas previously they said they would never do this. People from the Berala area are now banned from the cricket, but welcome to attend the A League, or any local sports event. Perhaps cluster fvck was a bit hyperbolic, but this is definitely getting messy for the sake of 10,000 people attending Day 1 of the cricket.

That's a lot of tests. Without wanting to pry, have you had symptoms or are your tests work/travel related?

Not really as I live in the CBD and have a partner who works there.

1 was after my return from America in March

1 after my partner had cold symptoms

1 after a really sore throat

Today after sore throat and sniffs.

The advice is to test with Cold symptoms as it's impossible to tell the difference without a test.

I aslo have RA so always have a fever - makes working through the symptoms hard

Exposure time changes the risk. Obviously the risk is still there for an a league game, but it woukd sit differently on your framework.

The League and A league venues in Sydney are much more constrained in space than the SCG.

Even so I wouldn't allow any games to go ahead in the current climate.

NSW Health had previously stated that the biggest risk for the SCG test came from attendees travelling to and from the event. That's why they mandated masks for people travelling to the test, but up until today had refused to mandate masks at the cricket.

If the biggest risk is getting in and out of venues, are the busses that A League fans travel on less risky than the busses that cricket fans travel on? Are the stairwells they use to access the SCG less infectious than the stairwells for the soccer?

There was so much frikkin toilet paper in the supermarket today, it was impossible to walk down the aisle.

I'm now worried that Coles know things are going to kick off again or they just over ordered due to the possible lockdown.

Annoyingly my favourite TP paper wasn't there - Coles 3 ply double length role, best in the business, the 'fancy' brands equivalents suck in comparison.

Have you checked if your brand is manufactured in the PRC?

Perhaps you should buy one of those locally made fancy brands.
