When you look at the actual results behind vaccinations, you can't seriously believe that. Regardless of who makes and distributes them, the evidence is irrefutable. On the whole, they work.
Had a “discussion” with my anti vaccine granddaughter a few days ago. I told her about the memories of my generation that you don’t hear about now. My grandfather wore caliper boots and hobbled about falling a lot because his muscles were wasted away from polio. We used to visit a distant rellie occasionally who spent all her adult life in an iron lung ( google it). She just kept on with her 2 favourite words “ yeah but” so I just gave up. Heard later that she can’t wait for restrictions to be lifted so she can get her lip filler (Botox) redone. Go figure!!!

A friend of mine went to a shopping centre in Brisbane today. He said the shopping centre was packed. Like shopping just before Christmas.

This does not augur well. My friend reckons the restrictions in Queensland will have to tighten again shortly. Because of the crowds.

I reckon there would be undetected Covid 19 cases out in the Queensland community.

It only takes one person to start an outbreak. In Western Australia, places like K-mart have never closed.

Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly says that close prolonged contact seems to be the key and this is why most of the outbreaks have been in households and nursing homes etc. There have been very few transmissions traced back to supermarkets and the like.

Interesting. That may explain the 15 minute bluetooth thing on the COVIDsafe app'.

One new Covid 19 case in South Australia today. After South Australia had two weeks of no new cases. The man returned to South Australia from overseas on 20 March and sought a test on the 05 May. He could have been infectious for 46 days - without knowing it.

We may need a vaccine to beat this one.
This is exactly why EVERYONE needs to download the APP.

I thought this was most comprehensive study ive read on virus so far: https://www.youtube.com/redirect?redir_token=VGX2UyNjpFmAGOdDXdr-CWbA_1J8MTU4OTIxNDc1NEAxNTg5MTI4MzU0&stzid=UgzIMgsRSO7pwI3Xtzl4AaABAg.98NGoYEDo1i98QlB3I-Yr8&q=http://keck.usc.edu/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Evidence-Based-COVID.5-5.pdf&event=comments
Re vaccines: for a different opinion watch this lady (interview starts 2 mins in, link to hour interview in description) then watch some Dr Buttar-he might not be everyone’s cup of tea. If you want to hear more from lady, she and other medicos are in his videos.
Australian database for people to look up stuff they taking etc; http://apps.tga.gov.au/Prod/daen/daen-entry.aspx

Covid App downloads stalling at 5.5 million, even after the text sent by gov.
I said they would stall at 6 million-I was close.

My understanding of the app is it works on the premise, that you have to be inside the 1.5m zone, of the infected, for at least 15 minutes, for the app to trace you....I was under the impression the virus was a touch someone with covid and you get it super contagious type of virus.
