  2. Fair concerns. I will say that there is still some wiggle room in how places actually implement it. We’ve had 2 community cases here in Singapore today, but we won’t go into lockdown tonight the way Perth and Melbourne would, although that is more political than practical. They’ll trace them, test all their contacts, work colleagues, family and see what the results are. Sydney also has a lot more faith in their tracing and letting the process play out. Cases aren't necessarily the problem in themselves, but unlinked ones are. The vaccine will change the way it needs to be approached, as there

  4. You don't need to tell me twice. Stuck on a landmass where I'm at the border 20 minutes any direction, haven't been home in a year and unlikely to be able to get home see my step-dad again before the big C does him in. I also work in Immigration and Visa processing and somehow continue to have a job. Its an activity though that is super high risk in creating new chains of transmission. If it needs to be held off to keep other areas of the economy able to open up and function, then whilst its a hard and crap choice, it would seem the right one. I don't disagree with any of this, we both
  5. I think it’s fair to say that the UK has missed its chance, and that the current roadmap presents the best chance of resuming normality whilst mitigating risk. Saying it’s not possible though feels like the same excuse that’s been used for the last 12 months at each point a hard decision needed to be made, before making the wrong one, and returning to the hard one weeks too late.
  6. For sure, the vaccine is the greatest weapon in driving cases low, or stopping any adverse consequences of being positive but the other stuff needs to continue to happen alongside it, at least initially while the roll-out happens and it's a lot easier and less resource intensive to contact trace and Test, Track, isolate 5 cases a day than it is 1000.
  7. Fair viewpoint, but the counterpoint is that if you are operating a policy that allows cases to circulate in the community, then the threat of a longer lockdown is also there indefinitely. We all miss travel, but at some point there needs to be an acceptance that its a high risk activity in a global pandemic. Is the want for it to return quickly (without mitigating risk through quarantine) worth the risk of torpedoing a functioning domestic economy and going back into lockdown? A number of countries have shown it is possible to have a somewhat domestic normality and a functioning economy
  8. Thanks for posting this as the original article had a number of issues. Seemed to essentially boil down to “we had a bit of a half assed go at things, and it didn’t work, so no point trying again”, Again, as with all articles against zero covid , and with the full acknowledgement of my own bias, I just can’t understand what people read in the rebuttal above that they actually disagree with. The common gripe seems to not wanting to be locked down, when it’s the constant cycle of lockdown/open up/long lockdown that is being avoided. A type of normality with the possibility of the odd shor
