One new case locally acquired case in NSW overnight, linked to the Berala cluster.

Northern Zone of the Northern Beaches being released from their higher levels of restrictions overnight.

Still not a single person in ICU, which is great.

Is it too early for us to agree that the latest Sydney outbreak has been crushed, and that Gladys Berejiklian has shirt-fronted COVID-19?

According to that academic who’s always talking, we should have 3,000 cases by now

Yeah, so maybe Gladys is a hero

Please don’t tell me you’re suggesting that the 4-day old, partial mask mandate has stopped this outbreak?

No, I'm saying that your desperation to prove Norman Swan wrong, and in doing so to promote an anti-Science agenda, is amusing. Swan urged an abundance of caution and now you're trolling him.

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

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

It was Morrison that started the hostilities by demanding China submit to humiliating, Iraq-style inspections over coronavirus. All to ingratiate himself to Donald Trump. How's that relationship looking now?

Anyway, we have a dedicated thread to discuss the Federal government's incompetent management of the China relationship. Can we please keep this thread on-topic?

I heard an interesting statistic today that illustrates how very lucky we are here in Australia. Apparently, one in 50 people have tested positive to COVID-19 in the UK. In contrast, in Australia it’s one person in 85,000. Stay safe my Aussie boets :thumbup:

3 new locally acquired cases in Sydney, all linked to the Berala cluster. And there has also been another case, but this fell outside the 8pm until 8pm window that Berejiklian reports on during her daily press conference.

Sure, Victoria had a bad 2nd wave. But you're not seriously saying that NSW has done better than QLD or WA are you? Both economically and in terms of health outcomes. That's not even up for debate.

No, and don't think she is either.

But she can - and does - point to:
- dealing with the majority of overseas travellers into Australia and doing a good job of it
- not knee jerk closing borders without considering risk etc

And she's probably ScoMos pet at National Cabinet - so she gets to shit on them a little.

Plus being the premier of the most populous and economically strong state mean's she got a bit more power than the other states.

And she's politically very strong ... her biggest political pain is her own coalition partner (Jonny B) and herself. And the media on both sides love her.

(Clearly there is a bunch of negatives - Ruby P on her watch etc, sleeping with a criminal... but she's played it all well).

Apparently private security guards who work in Sydney's Hotel Quarantine program have not had to wear masks up until this morning, after a picture of a mask-less security guard was leaked to the media. Gold standard?
