The ACH College Grove Facility ( 58 bed ) is now on line and ready for use if required.

National cabinet meets tomorrow to discuss the lifting of restrictions on elective surgery.

0 new cases today, 3 days in a row of no new cases.

968 tests done yesterday, 1000 on Saturday. Nearly 2000 on Thursday and Friday combined.

If you are in the 20-30 year old age bracket SA Health are calling for you to come forward for testing if you have any symptoms of cold or fever.

85% ( 369 ) recovered, only 62 active cases in the state.

6 in hospital. 2 in ICU, both critical.


That's great news for SA......and so long as it continues, I think SA should and will be a test case for the rest of the country, lift restrictions in SA, keep the borders closed for now..... and see what happens. If there is no community transmission then, SA has beaten it.

Plenty of dickheads here in Vic (no surprise I know) breaking the rules, and the boys in blue are handing oit plenty of fines. I knob has racked up 5 fines for breaking the rules in 3 or 4 days.... what a brain surgeon he must be!

We have a long way to go....... but hopefully the rest of the country can catch up to SA, and slowly begin to relax restrictions.

Brings me to what happens when we as a country beat this thing, in terms of opening up our international borders.

Surely we only open up initially to other countries who have beaten it, and the absolute last country we open up to, and allow back in is China. Don't care if they've beaten it, lock the pr!cks out.

If China wants to keep wet markets, knock yourselves out, eat all the bats you want.... but be effed if you are coming down here with it.

My 2 cents.

Only the rich people in the eastern suburbs could afford those.

They can have them, over-rated IMO. Not a patch on a Balfour's custard tart.

Yep, too much sponge.

Spot on. As a kid, I'd scoff the sweet 'frog' top bit and reluctantly endure the sponge crap at the bottom. And then the cream filling in frog top made me feel sick.

As a kid I just waited until it was my turn to have a bite and hope that there was some green icing left.

Looks like the Virgin Australia board has voted to go into voluntary administration and clear the decks. The Chinese government are very interested in picking off the carcass and running a revamped airline in Australia

A wet market (dubbed so because of their wet floors from ice used to keep food fresh) is just a market that sells fresh food. Sydney's fish market is a wet market. So is Melbourne's Queen Street market. Most of China has wet markets the same.

The problem is wildlife trade and sale of live wildlife for slaughter, which is currently banned in the reopened Chinese wet markets.

If they won’t stump up the cash then they shouldn’t block any potential sale IMO

True, but surely you can’t say to a company we won’t help you and 10,000 plus workers are unemployed but we will welcome private investors. Oh wait except those blokes from Chynnnnaaa [emoji23]

Ok. Then if they want markets with both live & dead animals where transfer of virus is possible whatever they are called.... eff off out of our country.

Yep

They need to be willing to regulate to a higher standard whatever those markets want to be called.

Only a small number of their wet markets have live exotic animal trading and many Chinese people actually are in favour of those ones being banned.

Then the government need to get it done then.

If this is going to be the consequences of outbreaks such as SARS and Covid-19 then China needs to come to the party and world standards or we have to place stricter guidelines around their tourists visiting the country.

We are not ‘living life’ at the moment, we need to protect that.

No to Violence the peak body in NSW has reported a 24% increase in cases during the isolation period.
