How does letting a deadly virus getting loose win elections? What gain is there for "milking it"?

The problem is people not taking Covid19 seriously and think it's OK to do what ever they want putting other people at risk.

If the isolation is true isolation, then two weeks is entirely sufficient if it includes testing every two days, and 3 clear tests before exit (in fact it could be one week).

I would like to see the rules adjusted for those with antibody evidence from blood test (AZ. Pfizer, Moderna. J&J or recovery)

The real problem in Victoria is that working households on lower incomes can not afford to take it seriously anymore, thousands have been laid off, hundreds of small businesses have been forced to close for good and homeless numbers are skyrocketing!

If anything Dan and his gang have lost themselves the next election.

Exactly. It is not doing the government any favours by stringing Covid along.

IMO though. I wouldn't blame the lower income households for the breaches. They are the least likely to travel,  go out and visit multiple retailers, sporting events, recreation.

Here is one from over this way:

Right, wrong, or indifferent, my state (Michigan) is lifting all mask requirements, and outdoor/indoor capacity limits on July 1.  Where I work they will follow suit and likewise relax.  Up until now, for about a month, you were only required to wear a mask in public if you have not been vaccinated.  Uh..... yeah.... the "Honor System".    ::)

The lower income households aren't the one packing the van and driving up to Qld and spreading the virus.

The actual survival rate is around 75-80%. 3.8 million people have died of Covid19, hardly think that many businesses have collapsed.

According the an Australian Government ad in the news papers, we are better now then before the pandemic. So which is it?

Huh? The 3.8 million is out of 176 million cases, so that's 97.8% survival. Australia's a bit below the world average at 97.0% survival. Of course, if you don't lock down, your hospitals get overrun and the stats get worse. Eg. Mexico's been hammered with their survival being much closer to 90%.

It's like saying we shouldn't shouldn't wear seatbelts, because not that many people die in vehicle accidents compared to the number of vehicle trips. Use the lower stats caused by doing something to argue that thing doesn't need to be done.
Never mind that some people think businesses are more important than lives.

Masks, social distancing are the seat belt, lock downs are the airbags.
