#Covid19NSW #SydneyLockdown
After 107 days, I am hoping that I never, ever, have to again make these daily posts ... And for those fools esp in media who platformed hysterics & uncredentialed 'experts', you have urged ruination on innocent people as surely as any crank anti-Vax

Not sure how @billbowtell got himself into the partisan nastiness but the pandemic has been a test case on why the 'experts' predictions need to be treated with great caution. (via @evmulholland)

Watching our own Brad "Chad" Hazzard - the most local Northern Beaches guy, ever - describe Redfern as the 'crossroads of Australia' is why we are living in not just a Pandemic but a golden age for content. The greatest Health minister since Augustus.

NB: Gladys remains NSW Premier until there is a new Liberal leader (X). Gladys then goes to the Governor to resign and advises the Governor to send for new leader X to form a new ministry.

The testing results here are weirdly low - suggests that there are many (with no doubt legit reasons to be apprehensive about authorities) not coming forward to get tested.👇

It is the Delta strain and whether you think Daniel Andrews is the best or worst Premier - or just an overpromoted political hack - no government of an open society can do much to prevent the Delta spread except make vaccines available & jabs accessible

This by @apatrickafr is right: @GladysB really has been the hope of the side in 2021. Everyone in New South Wales has carried Australia - esp the reception of returning Australians with Plague - on our broad, blue-jerseyed back.

Absent some good faith excuse or medical reason, I cannot comprehend why any medical/healthcare worker would not be fully vaccinated already.

One of many reasons that vaccination was always a race, contra Morrison, is this - rolling out vaccines en masse and speedily means you do not enter September with this occurring

While NSW is galloping to 70%, am hoping that this is true for the distance to 80% ... there will be a hardcore % of vax hesitant/vax bonkers that will not be insignificant in a State of 8m people

According to the Sky chryon running on @ljayes show this morning, Gladys is coming out to front the media this morning at 11am .... in 2025 we will still have 11am press conferences as our 'public health experts' caution it is too early to reopen

Well said "Chad" @BradHazzard - go and get vaccinated, not just for you, but for your family, for your community, for the good of the country.

I can strongly recommend AZ, the unpretentious, local, journeyman, vaccine of the working man.

This is Gladys' NSW 'roadmap to freedom' for the fully vaccinated from the Monday in October after which we hit 70% fully vaccinated. It is pretty lame but compared to Victoria, it is "Gladys Gone Wild"

The lockdowns made sense as a form of needed suppression but they are not working against Delta & now we are destroying the young people of whatever village we are trying to save.

Scott Morrison on Sky now - he gets that the country's mood is shifting. Once we are 70-80% vaccinated, then we will have to start reopening esp as Christmas looms. States that want to stay locked down should have Commonwealth funding removed/reduced

Boy oh boy are there a lot of cops out on the roads leading in to Melbourne CBD this morning. Saw two big roadblocks on a short bike around the outskirts this morning #Melbourne #melbourneprotest. Livestreams from #sydneylockdown #sydneyprotest also showing heavy police presence.
Some protesters have suggested using Waze to mark police presence for each other.
The plan in Melbourne seems to be to walk in from nearby places like Richmond or South Yarra.

Cannot help sensing that we are in a new place where Govt cannot stop the Virus spreading (no Govt can) & Govt's punitive measures are simply impoverishing and demoralising the most vulnerable populations.

Everything is about Vaccinations. Stop talking cases, Gladys, and show us every day how much closer NSW is to 70% and then 80%. We are unlikely to ever have covid zero but we can more easily achieve Herd Immunity.

I thought people might appreciate a bit of an insight into how things are for teachers during lockdown. Please note this is just my personal experience, and is not a whinge or a plea for sympathy. I am fine, but it's hard, and all kinds of things are out of our control.
My load this year is 3 days English, 2 days library. At the start of lockdown, I had just one class (Year 8) that I didn't share at least one period with other teachers. My HT and I share a Year 9 and a Year 10 class, and I had one or two periods of other people's Year 8 classes.
Once lockdown started, this is how responsibility for posting work went: obviously, I'm 100% responsible for my own Year 8 class, and I took on the main responsibility for another Year 8 class where the split was 4/3 and the other teacher has young kids at home.

Good news - New South Wales now at 50% first Vax doses.

#Covid19NSW #SydneyLockdown
At the risk of repeating myself, mass vaccination was always our only way out - and it was always a race. The vaccination hubs at the Olympic Park should be 24/7 - we should also have 24/7 hubs in north, south, east Sydney as well. Get this done.

Gladys needs to start briefing firstly with the Vaccination numbers and the progress to this date to the 70% and 80% targets. That gives us all some hope for getting out of this.

- 262 new cases (this is meh)
- 50+ infectious in the community (this needs to come down)

All the focus should be on Vaccinations. Vax, Vax, Vax.
