• How long can this go on for with this ridiculous notion of elimination? We need to get on with our lives and have an approach like NSW. Controlled tracing of the virus. At the rate our country is going, we'll be shut off from the world indefinitely. What happened to flattening the curve so that o...

  • This madness of not allowing Australian citizens to travel is a total overreaction. If you're vulnerable to the effects of COVID then don't travel, otherwise we should be free to take risks and get on with enjoying our lives. This is far from the death sentence that people originally thought it w...

  • @patrick I accept these are your views and if you wish to follow them then that's totally up to you. It's sad to see the airline industry on its knees and the great number of people affected by it. And those who cannot even travel for essential reasons due to further airline cancellations. I wond...

  • @patrickkSo 20% of the active cases in Australia now are in hospital? I have three nurses in my immediate family and they've said hospitals have never been quieter than these past 6 months. But for the second time, will you be willing to accept these restrictions indefinitely?

  • @patrickkWell what is the solution then? As I said we can't keep locking down whenever there's a spike in cases and keep our borders shut indefinitely! Quarantine those at risk and let the rest of us get on with our lives. For most it's a mild cold. I'm not scared in the slightest if I catch this...

  • Good on her. Finally someone talking sense and looking at it from the angle that we can't stay isolated indefinitely. There will be some collateral, albeit less now with vaccines and better ways of treating the virus.

    s4172249 - It's laughable how all you people doing your bit "for public safety" speak to other people. You do you, I'm just giving my opinion. I don't give two hoots whether one wears a mask or not. Yes asymptomatic infections. Where viral load is very low. Infection numbers are a totally differe...

    Again, no comparison. Smoking a cigarette on an aircraft could be seen as actively harming others or has the potential to cause inconvenience. We were never required to wear masks in bad flu seasons but expected to for the Kung Flu. Personally, if I'm not feeling sick, I'm not wearing one. Obvio...
