G'day to all again.

It is incredibly sad to see the cases have risen this high this morning.

We expect that this thread will also get on to the front page, as has been seen when case numbers have been high in the past.

This does unfortunately mean that it is likely we will see a small but vocal minority of bad faith users in the thread again. We would like to remind everyone to remember the human, and not to engage in the spread of misinformation, trolling, or abuse of other Redditors.

If you see these things happening, please do not feed the trolls. Reports will be looked into and action taken where necessary.

Thanks to the vast majority of Redditors who participate in good faith, stay safe, and stay at home. We'll get through this together.

Cheers.

Does anyone know the timeframe it typically takes after testing to be made aware of a positive result?

My bf’s colleague he worked with all weekend has just tested positive and notified us this morning - we live together so i’m now expecting the worst :(

u/arrackpapi 6d ago

when will you realise that not locking down would do more harm than good?

when there are thousands of cases a day? When hospitals are overwhelmed? When deaths start stacking up across other areas because hospitals are overwhelmed? When thousands of people have to live with potential effects from long covid?

without vaccinations that’s the reality. Just look up europe from earlier in the year.

u/strewthcobber 6d ago

Said it in another thread but the government makes a choice - shut down now with 100 cases a day, or open up now and shut down again in a month with thousands of cases, deaths everywhere and our health system overwhelmed.

That's the choice, repeated across the world until we are mass vaccinated - Delta doesn't play fair.

u/DarKuda 6d ago

Why is it that everyone ( I mean everyone ) I talk to in real life in Sydney does not give a fuck about Covid including my GP? Everyone seems to be saying it's stupid locking down and it hasn't worked in other counties and it's not worth the suicides and financial cost but when you go on Reddit it's just an echo chamber of Covid is going to kill us all and we all need to be afraid and follow everything big pharma and what the government says. My Nan has been in hospital for 3 months directly from the vaccine so I choose not to take it. That's MY CHOICE from evidence right in front of me and not misinformation but I'll take the downvotes. Always remember to follow the crowd guys and never question anything. Keep those blinkers on and pump an untested vaccine into yourself. Affects me none.

4

u/GaryLifts 6d ago

People that make this claim, never seem to appreciate how many people 1% actually is. Globally that's over 600m people, in the USA it's 3m people and in Australia it's 250k people; given that Australia has less than 40k cases, I don't see any justification to just open up and let 250k people die, it's mind-boggling ignorant.

22

u/Hawley_Is_A_Traitor 6d ago

So 250k Australians dying isn't scary to you? 6,000x deadlier than the flu isn't scary to you? Ok then

5

u/SelmaFudd 6d ago

Yeah I don't think half this cunts that think the survival rate is so high is because we've managed so far to stop hospitals being overwhelmed, without lockdown, masks and other prevention it would spread rapidly and hospitals won't be able to treat everyone and then you'll see people dying that could have been treated because there is no bed or equipment available..

These cunts are standing in the middle of a pandemic while most people are doing everything possible to stop it yelling about how it isn't that bad... Yeah cunt that's because we're all working on stopping it you dumb fuck.

1

u/Pro_Extent 6d ago

Actually our survival rate is half that of the USAs and Sweden's. We can speculate as to why, but 3% death is a hell of a lot higher than 1.4%

1

u/SelmaFudd 6d ago

I just had a look, Aus death rate is 2.82 and USA 1.78. not as wide of a gap but still ~1%. I would think with US health costs that milder cases wouldn't even be reported, which hypothetical would bring their death rate lower

Did I say 100% chance you will get sick and die? Guess I missed that. So you can't deny it's 6000x more deadly than the flu? And you can't deny that's scary? Just a bad faith argument pretending I said something I didn't?

Ah yes because I rely on facts and statistics I'm an NPC. But while you spew brainless talking points without a single thought, you just 'thinking for yourself'.

It's sad what fake news can do to the brain to make you disregard human life like that.

u/Sometimes1Wonder 6d ago

1% of population is dying of hunger everyday, yet no one bats an eye. Then 1% of people dying of covid due to having existing issues with their health and everyone rushes to get a vaccine even when you’re young and healthy. It’s not even about vaccinating the people, governments agenda is to do their best to divide people, take away their rights and freedom for the unvaccinated, shut businesses down over and over again til they cant support it and close down their businesses.

hen 1% of people dying of covid due to having existing issues with their health

blatant lie. Complications like being over 60 years old? Or the 67% of Australians that are over weight?

It’s not even about vaccinating the people, governments agenda is to do their best to divide people,

You divide people for the sake of division. We should all be on the same page. Save lives. You inhumane fake news cucks want people die because you've been brainwashed by fake news billionaires like Rupert Murdoch. Businesses would be open if you fake news cucks had just not turned it into a political issue and followed simple health regulations. If most people had done the right thing everything would have opened in three months and fake news cucks like you would still be screeching about whatever nonsense you've been brainwashed with.

u/Sometimes1Wonder 6d ago

if you're so scared of the deadly virus please feel free to stay home and have your rights and freedom taken away, seems like you don't trust the jabs they gave to you. You'll need 5 more booster shots every year til 2025.

u/Hawley_Is_A_Traitor 6d ago

If you're so cucked by fake news feel free to ignore health measures to stop a deadly virus. You'll be doing your part to ensure more people get sick and die every year until 2025.

First people care about hunger. No one is saying they don't. We have massive food programs all around the world. No one denies it exists or says well its just poor people dying. There would be a lot more if we weren't doing everything we are.

Second, that has nothing to do all with your lies and inhumane fake news propaganda against Covid. The comparison would be if someone said it wasn't a problem, which no one has.

It's doubly disgusting that you not only don't care about the hundreds of thousands or millions more that could die from covid if we just stop vaccines and all health measure, but on top of that you try to use hunger as some sort of gotcha to prove that the deaths don't matter? I thought you couldn't be any more inhumane if you tried, but you proved me wrong. It's truly unreal what Ruppert Murdoch and fake news has done to you.

Well it depends on what their symptoms are if they're having common cold symptoms or are asymptomatic I don't think most people are going to get tested for that.

If they're having more mild symptoms which I just learned that mild means bad enough to be noticed but not bad enough to be hospitalized then I can see people getting tested.

It's a very weird disease a lot of people have had it and not even know they did, they've brushed it off as allergies or a cold or they had no symptoms.

u/biggunzmcgee 6d ago

What the fck are you on about? We were one of the first countries to shut down our economy, crippling it in the short term in the hopes it'd benefit us in the long run. We were one of the first countries to shut down non essential businesses both big and small, we confined millions to their own homes for months, unable to leave our houses except to get supplies or exercise. Suicide rates increased. Businesses closed for good. For a while we were banned from visiting friends and family, or traveling beyond our own suburbs. So no, we weren't just living the dream. We sacrificed alot.

2

u/Sinimustvalge89 6d ago

Suicide rates did not increase in 2020 due to Covid lockdowns. The reason such claims are never linked is because it's not true. The NSW health ministry’s “suicide monitoring system” reported that 673 people from the state took their own life in the first nine months of 2020, compared to 672 for the same period in 2019.

2

u/biggunzmcgee 6d ago

According to the NSW Suicide Monitoring and Data Management System there have been 104 suspected or confirmed suicide deaths reported in NSW from 1 January to 31 January 2021. This is significantly more than the number of deaths reported within the same period in 2019 (75) or 2020 (81).

u/Pro_Extent 6d ago

Yeah, jobkeeper was ending.

I assumed that domestic homicide and suicide would skyrocket during 2020 but neither did (although DV definitely rose, according to the people who deal with it).

Except you forgot the part where you get a vaccine. And how's that working for ya? (Asking because I'm six months out from my own second dose of the vax, and there are something like 80% vaxxed around here)

3

u/Suburbanturnip 6d ago

My household is fully vaccinated.

Supply is now dramatically increasing (finally!). We now have the benefit to see the effects of covid in highly vaccinated populations without having to risk the lives of our citizens, so we can make informed plans for keeping up the international borders.

I won't forgive the federal LNP for their failures at vaccine precurment, and I think they are now doomed. Thankfully, with preferential voting, proportional representation and 95% voter turn out we are much more empowered to hold the political class to account than most democracies, especially the silly attempt at holding the political class to account into the USA or the UK.

Why Australia not getting vaccinated?

The absence of medical advice is absolutely a good reason to defer purchase of any medicine!

Purchase?

Where do you live?

u/omnemnemnem 6d ago

Australia. No manufacturing facilities for mRNA vaccines locally. So it has to be purchased from overseas.

For those that don’t get the reference, it’s a direct quote from Australia’s abysmal prime minister regarding the vaccine stroll out, from (I think) less than 12 months ago.

The hell it isn’t… it’s a race against time and against the virus.

Jesus christ, what the fuck is your problem, mate? Can't bear the thought of criticism of your dear scotty?

u/ghettobx 5d ago

I don’t have the slightest idea to what you’re referring… all I did was respond to your snotty remark. My dear Scotty? Unless you were just making a joke, in which case I apologize.

u/Ninotchk 5d ago

You know, the PM you apparently fucking adore and would hate if someone with a clue replaced.

Im referring to you telling me to shut the fuck up.

u/ghettobx 5d ago

I don’t adore any PMs, sorry.

There aren’t enough vaccines. Our supply is fucked.

u/outofhere9999 6d ago

Did I read somewhere that only 5% of Australia is vaccinated?

13

u/penislovereater 6d ago

Possibly. But that was probably a little while ago.

Current tracked figures show 12% have had two shots and a further 17.4% have had just one shot.

That's below the global average and worst in the OECD.

The "fully vaccinated" figure is going up by about 0.25% per day. So, will take quite some time to get in the 80%+ range.

u/LoosingInterest 6d ago

I hope that the vaccination rate accelerates when an additional vaccine supply comes online in September. Hopefully we’re not all locked up until then.

u/link871 6d ago

11.8% fully vaccinated 29.5% at least 1 dose

u/mr___bump 6d ago

I think it’s just over 10% now. But yeah, not a lot.
