Australia hasn’t had a first wave yet. You absolute throbber.
Dumb post. Just because we're not a shit-show like the UK doesn't mean we haven't had two distinct waves.


Throbber.
If it looks like a 2nd wave, and it sounds like a 2nd wave...

3 new cases, average down to 6.6 and only 10 mystery cases.

thats the good news. Dictator Dan still not looking at re introducing civil liberties to the oppressed millions in Melbourne though (maybe a tad overboard but im getting rather tired of lockdown). On the bright side the reasons for keeping melbourne as the worlds largest gulag are running out, that average is going under 5 soon and thats the end of Dan's run as Fuhrer.

And as I know everyone is holding their breath to know I still can't get a frickin haircaut, got to the barbers at 7:58am for an 8am opening and there was a queue of 15 :x

Yeh, probably throws some doubt over the efficacy of vaccines too. So we stay in lockdown until the world has eradicated it?

Strange comment. We need to get an updated flu vaccine every year, but that doesn't mean that the flu vaccines we take don't work.

Is the flu vaccine 100% effective?

Yes, we simply must close all borders and get all 7 billion under their beds. If they don't own beds, maybe a mass extermination programme for those in poverty. We cannot allow western people to get Covid.

Overseas posters must be laughing at Australia; we have one of the lowest rates of infection or death, and a're one of the only countries in the world to successfully manage a fully blown 2nd wave, yet we want to sack the State Premier responsible for doing so. Meanwhile in the UK, USA, Brazil and India, their leaders are enjoying a surge in support despite failing terribly to manage this virus.

While its inarguable that the 2nd wave in Victoria has been all but squished by the actions of the premier and his government and the (to be read in your best Dwayne Johnson voice) Millions and Millions of people living in Melbourne. Let us not be so hasty in handing out the victory beers to the people who inarguably caused the 2nd wave through bureaucratic bungling of the quarantine of plague ridden visitors.

I think the focus of the discussion should shift from the tit for tat argument on the best way to treat the rona and look at how the poplulation of gulag Melbourne can recover financially, socially and most importantly mentally from what must be a contender for longest lockdown in the world.

Things are so bad here we can't even have a Melbourne Cabal (is best Cabal) to watch the Bledisloe :shock:

Hoping the plague numbers continue to drop and we see a return to as normal a life as possible in the next week or so.

Why on earth would we stay in lockdown until the world eradicates Covid?
A total of 5 people worldwide have been diagnosed twice. The person in Melbourne has not been confirmed to be reinfected again, rather, they tested positive a few months after being given the all clear. Its being treated as a second infection but that is being conservative. Most likely is that its the same infection with remnants. We wont know until testing on the genetic makeup of the virus is done.

Now, there has been one confirmed reinfection case in the US with a different case (as opposed to the same infection tested twice). Right now, based on the official numbers there is a 2.5% chance of having had Covid in the US, and a 1.7% chance of having recovered (5.7m recoveries, 330m people). So the chance of someone who has recovered having it again is 1.7% x 1.7% - 0.03%. Not high but that should mean 90k people in the UK should have been reinfected. There is one, so that very much looks like an outlier and we might need to take a 1 in 100k chance of having one of those strange conditions that result in reinfection. But it certainly isnt a cause for concern for the vaccine.

According to AC we need to in order protect everyone from dying. The vaccine will also be along soon and then we will all be 100% safe. And Dan will become the leader of the free world for his heroic actions.

All current evidence shows that jurisdictions that have the best health outcomes also have the best economic outcomes. If Dan Andrews hadn't gotten on top of covid-19 then Melbourne's economic outlook would be much worse than it is now.

Also, how do you know that this 2nd wave was caused by "bureaucratic bungling of the quarantine of plague ridden visitors". My understanding is that this was spread by a night manager at Rydges. If our best and most well equipped doctors and nurses catch Covid-19 in hospitals and nursing homes then of course hotel staff will also catch it. I just find it amusing that the people demanding Dan Andrews be sacked for overseeing Victoria's 2nd wave are generally the same people who support Donald Trump, who has proudly overseen a genocidal plague in the USA with 225,000 deaths and counting.

Hopefully, hopefully. Will it re-open? Well most of Melbourne is still unsure. Even Dan is unsure.

Great leadership. Your mate. Almost decisive but not quite there. Maybe.

I do have to laugh at just how blindly political you are. No one from your 'team' can do any wrong and everyone else is at fault if things do go wrong.

I would go so far as to wager that if a Labor politician were to fvck a chicken in the middle of the AFL Grand Final (in a normal year) you would be on here in a heartbeat defending that politician for releasing that chicken from being all cooped up by the nasty farmer who is probably a Nationals voter.

Dan Andrews has arguably led Victoria through its 2nd wave better than any leader on Earth. That' s not opinion, that's fact. Nowhere on Earth has managed its 2nd wave as well as Victoria. You can cry all you like about hotel managers getting COVID-19 and spreading it to their families, but the reality is the COVID-19 did become embedded into the Victorian community, and Andrews did what he had to do to eliminate it. This wasn't the popular option, but it was the right option. If he'd kept the state open when it was recording 700+ new cases per day there would be hundreds if not thousands of Victorians dying every day. Presumably you'd be comfortable with that?

That bolded bit in red does tend to agree with the getting on top of the plague comment, strange to see it mentioned.

The second bolded bit in red confirms your agreement with the bungling by the quaranitine team, they were the ones who put the plague ridden returnees/visitors in the poorly organised (so poorly organised the health minister is gone and there is an official enquiry into the level of bungling/massive cock up) and released the rona into Melbournes population.

Once again I have not referred to sacking Dictator Dan, just looking for accountability from the chap at the top of the political food chain.

Okay, so we obsess about who was responsible for the outbreak in Melbourne, in the midst of a global pandemic, till we're blue in the face. But will you at least concede that the way Victoria has responded to this outbreak has been remarkable?

The second bolded bit confirms your agreement with the bungling by the quaranitine team, they were the ones who put the plague ridden returnees/visitors in the poorly organised (so poorly organised the health minister is gone and there is an official enquiry into the level of bungling/massive cock up) and released the rona into Melbournes population.

Once again I have not referred to sacking Dictator Dan, just looking for accountability from the chap at the top of the political food chain.
Okay, so we obsess about who was responsible for the outbreak in Melbourne, in the midst of a global pandemic, till we're blue in the face. But will you at least concede that the way Victoria has responded to this outbreak has been remarkable?
Already agreed with how well the response from Dictator Dan has turned around a potentially disasterous outcome to an almost manageable level, in fact i've lived through it. But will you acknowledge that there needs to be political accountability for the situation occuring in the first place? Which to me means that ultimate accountability rests with Dan Andrews?

800 dead and hundreds of thousands now unemployed, all caused by something that every other state has prevented through good management and sound decision making. Yet you want to gloss over it all. In fact you prefer to praise those in charge. Many of those same people that you are praising have been caught out lying to the independent commission that is reviewing what happened?

Several of those in charge have since quit, yet you would happily re-employ them because as you claim they have done such a great job?

QLD has had six deaths and NSW has had 60. Using your rational Beregjekilan should be charged with murder because she hasn't done as well as Palascczuk? Or will we concede that your argument is a stupid one and you only want ALP leaders to be held to account because you are a raging, right wing nutjob? In a global, once in a century pandemic people will get sick, and demanding that leaders be charged with murder anytime someone dies during a pandemic is childish. The fact that you adore Donald Trump makes your calls for Andrews to be sacked look even worse.

What's really sad is that the better the covid-19 data gets in Victoria, the angrier and more upset Clogs gets.

Over 800 deaths and climbing isn't better. That Covid data is getting worse. No matter how much you want to gloss over those numbers and pretend like they haven't happened.

I like how in AC's mind:
1. Dan gets the credit for 'leadership of the greatest COVID fightback the earth has ever seen' (trademark), but none of the accountability for the leadership of overseeing +800 deaths (BTW - you don't seem to understand the difference between accountability and murder in your replies - you should probably brush up on that).
2. Dan get's compared to Anna, when frankly Anna would be horrified by the comparison because she actually led her state well throughout the pandemic, not just in the second half when your 800 deaths down.

Subtlety, nuance, empathy and objectivity.







None of these words can be associated with AC.

Isnt it over 50% of Victoria deaths directly attributed to Federal Government run aged care homes, is any blame apportioned to the Fed government or does Andrews wear that as well? Just asking out of curiosity?

Meanwhile in the UK, USA, Brazil and India, their leaders are enjoying a surge in support despite failing terribly to manage this virus.
I don't know if inserting your head into your arse is an instinctive response to anything said by "Overseas posters" but it's worth looking into. :D

My understanding, which may be wrong, is that the Federal government runs the aged care homes (poorly) but the initial infection was from someone who contracted the rona from the quarantine debacle. It all seems to come back to not being able to organise a piss up in a brewery and then political side steps and throwing someone under the bus rather than accepting what happened, fixing it then allocating accountability.

There is also evidence that the strains of plague can in almost all cases can be directly traced back to the quarantine hotel (note evidence means an article I read and can't remember where so happy for experts to provide counter points and corrections)

Posters have demanded Dan be charged with murder. Of course it's a crazy demand, but the people calling for Andrews to be sacked are crazy.

So using your argument it's not actually Dan's fault, it's the Mayor of Wuhan who should be sacked, because that was the "initial infection"?
