    I knew that NZ got it right but did not quite realised how right. In fact, going by how wrong it's gone here and Europe and US, it is nothing short of miraculous. Two numbers, 25 deaths and GDP up 12%, bonkers.

    A lot of posts about a document, which may or may not be real. 
    Until it's confirmed, please let's not discuss it, for legal reasons.

    Thanks for this link. I've added it to favourites! Hesitant about damaging speakers, but will try it if I find things too quiet again.

    I discovered a little bar that said "unmute" ... and, surprise surprise,  clicking on it allowed me to listen to the wonderful esteemed commentary!

    Wonder if it could be long term effects of COVID, like some Newcastle players have had? I know they’ve said he’s tested negative recently, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t one of the positive tests a couple of weeks ago.

    Logistics of such is usually very low risk, as the key driver of infection is people in close contact, which isn't required for deliveries. There is limited evidence of surface transmission being a major driver of transmission. Given that so much of the economy is on its knees over this, having delivery still being viable for businesses is surely something anyone who supported keeping things open early should be supportive of. It's very low risk, but at least keeps something ticking over. 
    Speaking of the risks, even at the height of the Victorian second wave, borders closed across the board, freight was travelling across borders. Australia is hopelessly reliant on trucks for such for a myriad of historical reasons, but even having Victorian drivers crossing borders and staying elsewhere, it was linked to no new cases in other states. 
    Really, a lot of this is coming across as just randomly sniping at Eddie, and the topic of it seems weirdly stalkerish.

    BMA does not seem convinced with the plan to space out the 2 doses by 12 weeks. We seem to be the only country to go ahead with this, it just feels like another roll of the dice. Unfortunately if it does not land properly It might be a costly gamble.

    I personaly don’t understand, if there’s one area of following the science that you do it’s administer the vaccine in the way it’s researched and recommended by the manufacturer, it’s way too big a gamble to do otherwise , you could end up wasting a massive amount of time and money for a whole heap of next to nothing and alienate an already uncertain public against vaccine 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I don't think there's really any need to pull Australia up. Fair play to them, they went down a path and it's been the right one. Comments about Australia's response, and particularly Albert's comparisons with countries that have fared worse, just sound like sour grapes and jealousy.
    We went down a different path. It appears to not be working, and we're the worst performer in Europe for spread of the infection. We need to understand the reasons why, and why other nations did better than we did. I doubt this will be the last species jumping virus we have to contend with, so let's get a really detailed understanding of best practice now, ready for the next time.
    I'd like to see all countries with a successful vaccination plan rollout, as we'll never get back to normal until there's control everywhere across the world. Bitterness about who's leading the line doesn't really achieve anything. I hope the UK and Aus both roll out their vaccines in record time. I don't mind being a close second to them, or them being a close second to us. And I certainly won't criticise any country for making sure they have adequate planning before they act. I wish the UK had done more of it.

    Like Stive says, we went for control rather than suppression. I believe we went for herd immunity in the beginning, which is why Cheltenham was given the go-ahead, but the horrific reality kicked in and we tried to backtrack. Countries that went for suppression have had less deaths and faster economic recovery. That's the reality.
