For me in qld, I think it has worked. Talked to a friend of mine in England and she is so scared and I could hear that she had no emotion in her voice, which really shocked me. I have never heard anyone with so flat a voice especially my friend. I am in my late 60's and retired nurse, so am aware of what happens when things gets out of control. Had a stint in a gastro ward many year ago and the precautions we took t...

It looks like closing borders and locking people down has nipped the outbreak in the bud. Let's hope so. This has to be done quickly and widely to stop the spread of these highly infectious strains. Look at the UK, USA and so many other countries practically on their knees turning people away from hospitals, using non medical personal to transfer people to hospitals etc. Mass vaccinations are under way and let u...

Yes I do believe in border closure. It has been proved to work and I cannot understand why people do not see this and insist on not complying with the rules. This goes for social distancing, masks etc and indeed everything that is expected to keep us safe. We have people doing absolutely stupid things such as flaunting the quarantining rules. We have been fortunate in WA but now Queensland has been closed. Vic...

We now have the mutant strains in Australia. Queensland have closed down greater Brisbane but who knows if it has jumped those containment lines yet. Same goes for NSW and Victoria where the African strain has also been found. Letting someone out of quarantine after less than 2 weeks is not good enough. Letting people into this country and then not quarantining them for a minimum of 2 weeks is wrong and asking f...

We talked to the daughter in Brisbane yesterday. They are in lockdown in their little flat. She is busy making masks to match her work "uniform" of hi vis orange and blue. They are both essential workers. Her outdoors him indoors. So he didn't even get to go into lockdown till he finished work at 10PM Friday. They will as they have right through this keep their contact to a minimum. And wash and sanitise their hand...

It works. It stops the spread and where the virus is current it can be bought under control in that particular state as Victoria did. Some people did not like it but most Victorians I know were in full agreement with the restrictions. As for people who won't wear a mask or jump borders and think they are clever it is time to grow up. Look at US and UK and other countries and how they are losing people in the 10...

Exactly. My brother was going stir crazy in Melbourne. But he did not and would not break quarantine. Now he is enjoying a little break away, but not far away. Would have loved to come home to WA for Christmas, but knew not to take the risk. Think folks.

Why should anyone with the virus be allowed to infect others. I am sorry for those who are stuck in these bubbles. But if my Brother can give up coming home to WA for Christmas for the sake of others, so can the people in these bubbles.

True Mrs and I totally agree however, there is one easy, simple and fool proof answer, open national borders and "slam shut" international borders until such time as the virus is contained overseas.

TC 100% agree with locking the national borders. Sister would like to migrate back to Aussie with her Pommie family. But they are realistic that that should not be attempted till 2022 Even though it means she has not left the house accept for medical appointments in the past 10 1/2 months due to her lungs. Again more people should consider their health risks and those of all who they may come into contact with.
