That's the optimistic scenario. There might not be an effective vaccine for decades. We might be living with the risk reduction measures for donkey's years.

NZ might soon be permitting flights to the Cook Islands with no quarantine at either end. Nearly as good as a winter holiday in Queensland. \:D/

Hopefully that Krispy Kreme cloud has passed and isn't going to be repeated.

Jail time now an option for travellers from coronavirus hotspots caught lying at Queensland borders

People caught breaching coronavirus health restrictions could be sent to jail for up to six months, after harsher penalties were passed through Queensland Parliament.

The South Australian Government has announced fines of $1,000 for travellers from Victoria who refuse a coronavirus test on arrival in SA, as the state confirms its first COVID-19 case in more than two weeks.

Well looks like no sunshine on the east coast of Oz


Three teenagers who travelled from Victoria to Queensland and lied to police on their border forms have been branded “deceitful and deceptive” by Queensland Police

Queensland Police seized the phones of two of the teenagers and they are now being forensically analysed, according to a report from The Australian. Police took the phones over concerns the teens weren’t being honest with investigators about where they had been over an eight-day period.
$4000 fine each and face court probably when not infectious hopefully

Victorians who tested positive to coronavirus could not be located when members of the Australian Defence Force knocked on their door yesterday, Premier Daniel Andrews says.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday morning, the Premier said a number of Victorians were at work.

“You cannot go to work if you are sick,” he said. “You simply can’t. All you will be doing is

spreading the virus and putting people at risk. And it’s not a matter of judgment, it’s not a matter of criticism.

They aren't flattering photos. Their mums and dads aren't going to be too thrilled about the lies and the fines.

It reads as if Victoria is in deep shxt. Perhaps they need to do what the Thais do and "detain" people testing positive. I expect Kiwis would behave pretty similarly to Victorians if we were in the same position. Cindy's magic only goes so far.

Irresponsible ....seems they might think twice now as the law ups the charges to possible $13,000.00 fines and five years in the cooler for fraud.
Good riddance to the bunch of 'em.

The courts need to dish out sentences that stop others from being dorks. That's one of our principal weak links in NZ. The NZ courts just can't be trusted to do this.

A woman in her 40s has pleaded guilty to breaking out of quarantine and it looks like she's going to be discharged without conviction because she hasn't any form. I'd love her to get 2 weeks in the klink or something similar. If people do as she has done, we risk billions of dollars in economic damage and millions of people being locked down for weeks (a catastrophic outcome).

I stood on and broke my reading glasses this week. They were 6 years old and well past their use by date so there wasn't too much cussing. After I'd had my eyes tested, selected some frames and paid for them,the optometrist said it would be 3 weeks until I get them. :shock:

And then he said the lenses are made in Melbourne. Shxt. I wish it was Perth. I understand despite the stage 4 lock down in Melbourne, people still go to work in Melbourne. Is that right? Stage 4 in NZ means only essential workers are going to work.

I was buying some stuff in Perth last year before heading back here and they said it was 10 days delivery from Queensland. I said wasn't their an air-fright option and she said, "Yes, that's it. Ten days."

Fingers crossed. Maybe 2021, will see a turning point


Extract:

Lead researcher Professor Nikolai Petrovsky said the vaccine candidate had been shown to be safe and to induce antibodies that attack the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

"We've had no major side-effects in any of the subjects," said Professor Petrovsky.

That makes us more confident that this is actually going to work and that we might have a successful vaccine on our hands," he said.

If the vaccine candidate passes subsequent trials, it could be ready by year's end, he said.

"We can now test the vaccine in nursing home patients and show that it's effective in inducing the right type of immune responses and hopefully, ultimately, show that it's effective in preventing them getting infected," Professor Petrovsky said.

It seems too many people didn't observe the restrictions under level 3 in Melbourne for it to be successful. So level 4 perhaps became necessary. Of course, it might be that the virus is so contagious that level 3 was never going to be successful by the time Melbourne was put into level 3. Governments are trying to work these things out.

So, for 2 months from late April to late June you have under 20 No new cases being recorded for most days, with many days reporting under 10 No new cases a day, and presumably all of these new cases being quarantined. So what or who triggered the spike in new cases/spread in the last week of June.

There doesn't seem to be much explanation by the Victorian Government as to the potential/likely reason behind this "Outbreak", after almost two months of relative calm (other than that indicated by the BBC News in the Link below).

https://www.google.com/search?q=covid+1 ... e&ie=UTF-8


Extract: Initially, Mr Andrews pinpointed the origin of many infections to security guards who reportedly broke lockdown rules while overseeing hotel quarantines.

Health experts say the relaxation of rules, complacency on social distancing and sheer bad luck have all contributed to Victoria's rise in cases.

Now Mr Andrews says the current rate of community transmission - including "mystery cases" that cannot be traced back to work or home - is far too high.
