Dan just got up & said a third dose will help stop transmission. Based on what data, from where? What evidence exists to support this claim? Seriously they could say this strain came from a unicorn farting & half the media would have a headline the next day 'UNIFART VARIANT'. 🙄
Once again he repeats that currently the vax is doing next to nothing to stop transmission.
Omg he's just said a third dose will protect you for the rest of this year.
I'm becoming convinced the next thing will in fact be unicorn farts.

Djokovic case is really off & kicking. His team of 3, including a SC (Wood) & QC (Holdenson), versus the single barrister for the govt.
Theme of today: niche legal technicalities.
Wood arguing about the fact there is a requirement to produce evidence prior to boarding a plane, which Djokovic clearly did to be allowed on in Dubai.

VIC gov updates. Anyone with covid who finds out by rapid test, they're now responsible for reporting their own case & doing their own contact tracing. The hotline for reporting will exist 'from some time tomorrow'.
Lmao. Apparently a positive RAT is 90-95% accurate, so just as good as PCRs. But all the CHO advice on the Pandemic Orders is that they couldn't be used due to their high level of inaccuracy.
Foley claims there's been increased pressure across all healthcare, including GPs. Yeah because you kept telling everyone who didn't know what to do to call their GP? Think maybe that had an impact?

Comments on the Novak rejection and the inaccurate reporting of what the issue seems to be.
There's a lot of very loose claims this is a 'VISA issue'. First up, no Aus VISA has been legally amended to be linked to vax status. Vax status is a fully separate & different doc requirement that while needed is not technically a 'VISA issue'. Claiming it is, is inaccurate.
While Novak appears to have correctly received an exemption from a VIC panel on the basis of prior infection, which is in line with ATAGI guidelines & have been granted to hundreds of Aussies, that doc obviously isn't internationally recognised.

They've got an actual doctor at this presser saying that the 'indirect benefit' of vaxing kids is they might stop school closures. Yeah, that's a policy decision - not medical. Utterly foul using this.
They've trotted out a pediatrician dooming about the increase in positivity % in tests.
She has at least admitted that the only kids getting very unwell are those who have noted other health issues but they recover. Says even symptomatic kids unless urgent should recover at home.
Uhhh she's claimed getting your kid vxd will prevent covid. That's.. not even remotely accurate at the moment.
OH. Now it's about how bad it is if staff get exposed & have to furlough. Yeah again that's a policy decision to stand down people who aren't sick from working.

Presser today sees socialist barbie & captain weiner pushing boosters & addressing the testing issues.
We've got interchangable use of 'third dose' and 'booster'. Might need another media workshop guys, can't be breaking the echo chamber.
Weimar seems incredibly shocked that following his own words telling people to only get tested if they're actually sick or a close contact, higher % of tests are coming back positive. Shocking. Groundbreaking. Couldn't have been forseen as an outcome.
