I hope you're wrong. Even South Korea which has been fairly successful in controlling the virus had 400-odd new cases yesterday. India of course is out of control. And China we simply can't trust.Think I heard ( international students ).
Could be wrong Lee????
That’s the view I share.I hope you're wrong. Even South Korea which has been fairly successful in controlling the virus had 400-odd new cases yesterday. India of course is out of control. And China we simply can't trust.
This government has been extremely restrictive towards its own citizens. Can't they at least wait for a vaccine?
That news won't have done interntional sports scheduled to come to Australia shortly any favours..Apparently 6 of the Pakistan cricket team has turned up in New Zealand positive, despite regular testing at home before leaving.
Not sure we should be opening the door to anyone bar our citizens for a while.
How about citizens based in Pakistan?
Seems like the main problem was they broke quarantine rules and 2 cases turned into 6. Idiocy knows no bounds... Windies players not much better by the looks but luckily they weren't infected.My personal view is we should bring any Australian citizen home who wants to come and use quarantine measures as needed.
Not sure now is the time to extend that opportunity to others however, the world is drowning and we are in one of very few lifeboats.
That’s a better suggestion David.It is a difficult one. International students provide a lot to our economy and the government seems hell bent on screwing universities, but the risk really is too high at the moment the way the virus is going crazy overseas. Not sure China can keep it out either given they have land borders.
Australians should just be able to return. Maybe a few can hitch a ride in Mathias' plane.
The other aspect is we still have freight coming here from overseas on boats, their crews are likely to be left on the ships but someone has to get the stuff off the ship, there will be some contact. In Melbourne all ships need a pilot from our port authority to go through the heads.
No contact with the rest of the world is not realistic.
So, we need to get the quarantine working better. I still think this means quarantine camps of some sort away from the city centre. Some sort of army camp, convention centre, disused university campus or the like could work and could be found near enough to the city to enable those who do get sick to be taken to hospital. Quarantine in the middle of the city seems a contradiction in terms.
Pakistan players told it's a privilege to be allowed in to New Zealand and they're on their last chance. Shoaib Akhtar's reponse:Apparently 6 of the Pakistan cricket team has turned up in New Zealand positive, despite regular testing at home before leaving.
Exactly Brodders.I guess they cant know 100% there are no cases, unless they test everyone, so 28 days is the rule but there is no guarantee.
