there is a bit of media boosting in those numbers. Drilling down, quite a few of the so called refusals were people declining because they had been tested elsewhere, in the previous few days.

Never let the facts get in the way of a good headline

Ditto in Rozelle and Balmain yesterday. Queues of cars with perfectly healthy people wanting to be tested. Why? For what point? Maintain distance, do not cough on others, go home if sick (and then get tested)

We have seen some media reports in other parts of the country where people have refused to take the test ... It is compulsory and we have 100 per cent compliance with testing."

Data from the Australian Government Department of Health shows that in 2020, Australia began with relatively high flu rates. We had 6,974 laboratory-confirmed flu cases in January and 7,167 in February. However, cases have since taken a nosedive, with 5,891 recorded in March and only 307 in April (compared with 18,691 cases in April 2019).
QUOTE
“We were getting a surge [of flu cases] in January/February, then we instituted… social distancing and reminders about good handwashing. To a lesser extent, the decrease in international travel has been important, too,” says Professor Robert Booy, Senior Professorial Fellow at the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance. “So come March/April, the flu incidence just plummeted… and that’s because people aren’t close to each other, they’re not coughing on each other, they’re not hugging each other.”


....but who's ever had lab confirmation of flu?

Why o why do we still have international travellers coming in to oz?.
Is it too hard to close the international borders?
I shakes me head in wonder.

Strewth nipper, that's a bit close for comfort.

I'm beginning to wonder if our Qld borders will be closed up again ...... what a pain.

Cheers

Absolutely amazing, the change in the suburb. High street almost empty, shops quiet, people stepping away if you meet on the footpath. My neighbour turned up at noon; as soon as the news spread; he was sent home from his office.

Amazing what Item #1 on the news will do, to focus minds. Everyone becomes an expert.

This Covid is a waiting game. Be sensible and don't be silly.
