Feeling very sorry for Victorians today. I think all Australians were hoping that their restrictions would be eased. The Victorian govt was damned either way, if they eased restrictions and the current northern suburbs outbreak worsened, they would be crucified. If they held the line and maintained restrictions for another 24-48 hours whilst testing continued they would also be crucified. I have no doubt that the daily Federal govt attacks on the Victorian State government have played a role in this caution. Victoria knows that they are very much alone, and any problems that arise as a result of covid-19 will be seized upon by the Federal government for political purposes. That's a real shame.

Zero cases overnight. Zero. Average of 3.6 cases per day. Most cases are from known outbreaks.

And we are still in lockdown.


Dan needs to urgently open up or he will lose the people.

Hmm, I am not sure I have been 100% clear on how I feel. I am a rather guarded individual and don't tend to broadcast my opinions.

I bet they get an exemption to use it during Covid too.

Anyway, Festival Hall has shite acoustics. The Forum is way better for that size venue.

ABC news informs me that this new cluster actually started on October 6th. It turned into 36 cases. I am stunned that this was allowed to get so out of hand. We identified the first case 3 weeks ago and if we stomped on it then through effective management we could have limited the spread. Instead 2 weeks later an infected person was let out to go to school. Gold standard stuff?

No wonder Dan had no confidence yesterday. They just don't know what is happening because it isn't being managed appropriately.

Ol Dictator Dan is running out of reasons to keep the worlds most liveable gulag in lockdown.
Cases Down.
14 Day Average Down.
Mystery Cases Down.
New Cluster numbers no exploding.
Only reason to keep delaying is stubborn political adhearance to "The Plan" to not open until november.
Lets hope its a clear path to normality (whatever the fudge that is now) to allow people to unpause their lives and move on.

The media conference would normally be well underway by now. He and his team are probably frantically trying to put together a plan which is why he is late.

It’s scheduled for the afternoon....

They’re waiting on another batch of results so they can hopefully make an announcement.

Very odd behaviour from the leader. Almost disrespectful of the people. No updates, no clarity as to what is happening.


I am getting a sense he is waiting for todays results before he decides anything. Which is unusual. Because if there is a case or two then he will try and use that to justify further delays. This change in behaviour means he is not confident in our contact tracing team which is why he is waiting. He is afraid and uncertain rather than backing his team to keep this under control.

He really should update us as to when he will give his presser. It is disrespectful to the people to not at the very least do that...

Odds on he is going to be forced into an embarrassing backdown from yesterdays "pause" and he will be announcing a raft of easing to restrictions. One I suspect he will dig his heels in will be the visit to a friends house. Not likely for a while (at least until after Melbourne Cup).

Anyone else got any guesses?

Ever so much closer. Thank you Dan. A tough gig for sure.

I will be pissed off again if you massively restrict visits to people's homes. Be warned. You don't want me angry and keyboard thrashing again on Planet-Rugby. You have been warned.

And its a win for freedom. Most things open tomorrow and 2 weeks until the "Ring of Steel" is gone and the 25km limit is gone. Phew.

Still need to be sensible which i can't disagree with but the next person who does stupid stuff and threatens a lockdown gets hanged, by their nads, using barbed wire, and forced to listen to trumpys speeches on loop :x :x :x

Interesting reading this thread in comparison to what happened in Ireland. Cases went up in March, we were forced into lockdown at the end of March for roughly two months. This coincided with some of the best weather on record for April/May so generally people accepted it. Case numbers went down and stayed extremely low throughout the Summer. As soon as Autumn closed in we saw the case numbers creep back up. Although hospital numbers stayed much lower during this second wave (currently 319), we were straight back into restrictions and now we’re back to a 5km travel limit with most non essential businesses closed. Despite some great examples of how to manage a viral pandemic in East Asia we remain stubbornly wedded to the Western obsession with widespread rolling lockdowns and to hell with the consequences.
