another news site i read says queensladers have until 1am on Tuesday morning to get home ... if that is correct, she should be fine.

I wish the govt's website was a little clearer. Who ever is in charge of keeping that page up to date should be sacked. It's as clear as mud
I think that is right JS.
As clear as mud. It is pollie speak.

AP The QLD Premier announced Qlders coming back had till 1 am .. tomorrow. Umm yeah so up till one hour after midnight Tues . 1 am.

Crikey it's enough to do your head in.. and I don't have no loved ones in transit. So anyway, should be good as long as she and the kids are home by Monday night.

As Covid death toll soars ever higher, Sweden wonders who to blame | World news | The Guardian

But the shift in opinion within Sweden is even more marked. This is partly due to the failure of Tegnell’s Public Health Agency to anticipate the severity of the second wave, partly due to damning reports from the country’s health watchdog and coronavirus commission, and partly due to a more critical media.

“Opinion in Sweden has really changed: there’s a broad criticism of the strategy and [a sense] that we have really failed,” said Jenny Madestam, an associate professor in politics at Stockholm’s Södertorn University.

Sweden now have looked at their neighbors and realized their approach was wrong.as death tolls keep going up...

Yup, Sweden fucked up. Hope they get a better strategy in place like NOW! The US will have to wait for Biden to be inaugurated.

Poor old Biden has been set up.

Trump has done everything he can to make sure that thousands more people get infected over the American holiday season (Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year).

In Biden's first month as President, there will be a massive spike in cases & deaths and the entire Trump crime family will be on Twitter every day blaming it on Joe.

And, the morons who support the failed businessman will fall for it.

The United States is said to be monitoring the new Covid-19 mutation in the UK. Reuters reports that multiple US officials have added that it’s currently unclear if the mutation had made its way to America.

US Covid-19 vaccine program head Dr Moncef Slaoui told CNN’s “State of the Union” program, “We don’t know yet. We are, of course ... looking very carefully into this.”

The new variant is said to be 70% more transmissible, leaving neighbouring European countries to impose travel restrictions from all UK passengers.

Donald Trump’s Surgeon General, Jerome Adams, has said that while mutating viruses were not unusual, the new strain means that Americans must be more vigilant about safety precautions.

good luck with that

Port of Dover and the Chunnel closed by France.

Guess instead of semitrailers on the train they will have to load just the trailers? (Done with the Spirit of Tasmania, trailers dropped off in the yard and pulled into the ferry by special tractors that can be driven forward or backward—driver turns around in his cabin rather than the tractor turning around in the hold.

We hear today that the new extra-virulent strain from the UK HAS made it here to Oz. Two people in Quarantine. !

I've been hearing Jets in the sky a lot more in the last couple of days. Everyone is trying to get home. QLD is putting up the barriers again.

Seems at least 80 people from the hotspot in Sydney tried to ooze in to Qld already.!!
They are in Quarantine, or turned back.
People cannot be trusted.

Hope your partner and sprog got home ok John.

Good grief.!

Wasn't paying attention so can't tell you who this pollie fuckwit is.. maybe it'll get shown again. It was on the Project.. Channel 10 now owned by Americans. So anyway

this Minister of something or other ..( a grey haired man :roll )was being asked about the location of a Covid case..

NOW GeT THIS.!!! (it'd be funny if it weren't so pathetic and useless and TYPICAL)

The reporter couldn't hear his response clearly so he asked a couple of times.. did you say Gunnedah or Gundagai .. I couldn't hear you...
The Minister of whatever kept saying .. No I think it is/was Gunnadai.

Gunnadai... FFS. !!! Gunnadai... he said it more than once.!

Seriously??

So there is over 100 cases linked the the Nthn Beaches Cluster in Sydney..

But there are also traces of the virus in at least two or was it three Sewerage treatment Plants in QLD. The virus is lurking. I don't consider myself a doom-sayer, and although I do often predict a grim future I am not Cassandra. I don't have visions, I have commonsense.

I do think we have a lot more to face. I don't think the Virus is going away anytime soon. Soon the dead will be lying in the streets , in vans of every sort , in the US the UK and well, you name it.

It's already happening , right in front of our eyes. The US has already asked Australia for nurses and other medical staff, to help them. They are desperate . I haven't heard if we have responded yet.

Once the carers and medico's numbers become devastated , by both the virus and/or breakdown.. there will be no-one to look after the sick. They will die, untended, lying in their beds at home.

That is the likely outcome, if things remain the same. Time is limited for ANY control, world-wide. We is Australia and New Zealand have had the benefit of a willing population, and isolation, geographically, plus Border closure . International and State , which has enabled lockdowns and restricted cross-infections. Some may say this is a coincidence... but NO.. we have been fortunate so far... but it is NO coincidence.

Still some people insist it is BS.. or barely know about it.. still people are trying to smuggle themselves, against the Border closure rules , into Queensland. So there is always a percentage of the population that consider themselves outside the Laws.. who think they have the ultimate say. These are people who are basically criminals.. at heart.
They believe only in the rules that SUIT THEM. Consequences be damned. Seems there is a growing new breed of ice -drug fucked people everywhere. But it isn't just those vile drugs, it is those VILE PEOPLE as well. "cos they are everywhere..

The vaccines..?
No comment at this time.

The lockdowns in Democrat run states are absolutely ruining the lives of so many people - Far more than the damage that would be caused by the China Virus. Cases in California have risen despite the lockdown, yet Florida & others are open & doing well. Common sense please!


This is why there are more deaths per day now than 9/11 from the Trump Flu, what a fucking moron

US deaths in 2020 top 3 million, by far most ever counted (apnews.com)

U.S. deaths increase most years, so some annual rise in fatalities is expected. But the 2020 numbers amount to a jump of about 15%, and could go higher once all the deaths from this month are counted.

That would mark the largest single-year percentage leap since 1918, when tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers died in World War I and hundreds of thousands of Americans died in a flu pandemic.

One in Ten deaths in the USA are from C-19.... it's very scary, now there are over 120,000 people in hospital from the Trump Flu as well and talks of getting medical personnel from Australia to help out......bugger that , if they cant help themselves why should we.....

Yes , we have been fortunate.

Treated as a Priority Health Issue, (Covid)... over economics, ....has been a triumph for us, even though the PM and the NSW Premier have fought hard for open borders, I think finally they are beginning to get the message. Well they MUST... obviously or they lose next time .

Shame on them for the petty political games they played to undermine OUR elected govt in QLD.

So over 320,000 deaths in America now. That is just the US.! We have reached 1.75m deaths in the world so far. ( i heard it on the teev)

I imagine bodies will soon be arbitrarily cremated, as soon as possible, so the fetid disease-riddled dead don't kill more people.

Happy happy joy joy

Once a spike is detected irresponsible people will try to flee the lockdowns that will follow so borders need to be closed immediately.
