When I first saw this picture I thought "How terrible, what a way to spread covid-19",  but then I realised that this is the look of a country that has managed to control the virus,  Well done Australia


Temperatures in Sydney over the weekend have hit 40C

I agree, Carbon.  But there's something to be said for gettin' while the gettin's good.  If you haven't had any new infections there's no reason why people can't have a break from the tedium of shutdowns and stay at home.  Especially if testing continues and any microclusters can be caught before the virus makes it's way into the general population.

I agree Witchy,

The only danger is Australians returning,and not doing the right thing......

The question I have for them is Why they would risk Australia getting a severe outbreak,??

we seem to be on top of it,

Time will tell....

Take care all especially you Yanks.....not looking good for you.......

Stay safe, be safe......😷😉🖖

The Australian government has terminated its agreement with Australian biotech company CSL Limited to supply 51m doses of a Covid-19 vaccine being developed by the University of Queensland, after vaccine trial participants returned false positive test results for HIV.

-

To ensure that the vaccine induced the right immune response, the clamp chosen comprises two fragments of a protein found in HIV, as those fragments provided the greatest stability to the vaccine. Adding those fragments to the spike protein is completely harmless.

Trial participants were advised of the possibility that vaccine-induced HIV antibodies might be detected as a result, but it was nonetheless unexpected. Subsequent HIV tests provided definitive negative results in the trial participants.

DJ-No doubt some now will claim ALL Covid19 vaccines spread AIDS....not based on the real story...

I wonder how their vaccine relates to the ones other companies are developing and if the same issues could exist.

I  don't believe the vaccine is dangerous

Just you could test positive for HIV...!!!!!

I'm not sure what I think...on this one....

Take care all  😷😉

Problem with a vaccine that gives a positive HIV-test is that it makes HIV-testing less reliable...in communications "testing positive for HIV after vaccination"-even if the test result is false as far as it has anything to do with the vaccination-will remain a major problem. Even if the vaccine for the rest would do a great job..

If it creates HIV anitbodies, will it protect against HIV as well?  

I understand the problems of communication and the need for extra HIV tests, but this might deal with two problems at the same time.

A false positive=a FALSE positive-so (what I understand) no immunity against HIV...(treatment in HIV/AIDS still is trying to limit spread, limit symptoms...but a vaccine is still far away..). If-by "accident" we would discover a vaccine against HIV this would be very welcome good news...HIV/AIDS this year killed almost the same number of people-so far-then Covid19 [url]https://www.worldometers.info/[/url] or https://www.worldometers.info/ 1,605,000 HIV/AIDS-Covid19/SARS2 1,620,000...

Here in NZ is the following news story about people fleeing Sydney ahead of the new restrictions. Surely they'll be taking the virus with them to the rest of Australia?

From another forum I am on:

This new UK strain is causing us problems.

First we had the quarantine guard in Perth, Western Australia, who caught it.
Now we have a quarantine guard in Melbourne, Victoria, who has caught it.

A woman in quarantine also caught it while in quarantine in Melbourne. A family of 5 arrived with the UK variant, and the woman remembers opening her hotel door (probably to pick up her meal) at the same time as they opened their hotel door. The woman now has the exact same genomic variant as the family have.

The Premier of NSW (who take the majority of incoming returned travellers) wants all quarantine workers vaccinated first. I totally understand her reasoning. Cover the people who work our weakest point.

Hotel quarantine worker tests positive for COVID-19 in Victoria, transmission between rooms being investigated - ABC News
