    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    Everything I said in that post did not come from any media outlet. Just pure fact which you already know yourself seeing as you have done a little personal research. Not one point did I speak about conspiracy theories of government control either. So don't label me in that category. I stated facts if you can't handle them that's fine just don't twist the statement to suit your agenda. I'm sure I'm educated enough and smart enough to make the right decisions for myself but thank you for your concern. I joined this forum thinking there might be some useful information to help with my migration. Hardly anything useful at all really. Then got drawn in arguing with you numpties most of the time. Anyway I'm here now living the dream so I'll take my leave. Peace!

    Headline should be. Man gets poorly, recovers! He plays at the pinnacle of the most athletic game on the planet and needs a couple of weeks to get back up to speed! Can tell you lot on here are older, you all sound petrified! Global survival rate from cases recorded 98.4%. That's not even singling out certain age groups. Oh and not one recorded death from Omicron. Stop spouting fear and look at the facts!!

    We made it to Perth!

    Yes thank you. Just got caught short yesterday being in the ocean for a good hour. Was only there 2 hours total but shows you how strong it is. Will have to be more liberal with applying it throughout the time being there.

    I am aware of the differences between temperature and UV level i just meant recover temperature wise while i sit around but thank you. Yer the kids have those rashies as you call them, they was absolutely fine. As i say i was the only one completely in the water and was the only one who got a little burned.

    Thats good advice about the sunscreen thanks for that. We was only there for a couple of hours and covered ourselves and the kids where all covered thankfully so they are fine. I was in the ocean for a while tho so that was probably what did it. Lesson learned for next time. Thankfully looks a little cooler over the coming days so i can recover

    Thanks, hopefully with us offering similar we might land this one we applied for. We have kept our house in the UK as well for a similar reason. See what areas we like and suit us and how we go when the time comes to buy.

    We made it to Perth!

    We have been out of quarantine since Tuesday this week and its been a whirlwind of getting stuff sorted. We managed to sort a lot in quarantine such as sim cards and TFN's. I had a couple of job interviews and have one tomorrow, have also been offered two positions just narrowing down which one suits and we was lucky as my wife already had a job to come to. Straight out we sorted our banking first day, driving licences after that and medicare. Wife had inductions and we picked our new car up on Friday that we bought in quarantine. We are staying with friends which is lucky, as we went to look at a rental and it was crazy. We are in a fortunate position and offered slightly more a week than advertised and offered to pay the full 12 months upfront but I still don't know if that will clinch it. Was happy when the weekend came so we could catch our breath for two days, although typical pom sunburnt on first trip to the beach and was only there two hours and put loads of cream on so going to have to be extra careful in future. How did you guys get on with rentals? And good luck with the job hunt!

    Flights via Singapore

    Hi everyone, We fly to Perth on the 8th of November with Singapore Airlines. I was wondering if anyone had travelled recently and could just confirm this checklist I have to make sure I haven't missed anything before our flight. Been a long time waiting to travel and had a recent scare with the introduction of VTL flights as we was on one, and our kids obviously aren't vaccinated (3 and 5) had to change the first leg after a few days of struggle, only to be then told they can now go on the flight with a vaccinated adult was very frustrating and we have ended up with a longer stop over at Singapore. Anyway here is what I have let me know if you think I have missed anything TIA: Visa Exemption PCR tests (48 hours for Singapore) Australian Travel declaration G2G pass for WA Have i missed anything for transiting through Singapore I have read everything and I'm sure I haven't but just wanted someone else's experience thanks !

    Those numbers are alarming. Quick breakdown i'll leave under 18's out as majority are unvaccinated. Age 40-49 - 130,904 positive cases in week 38 to 41. 13,022 not vaccinated. Deaths in that age group from 28 days 64. 34 of which unvaccinated so half. This shows vaccine prevents deaths as those 34 unvaccinated are out of 13,022 which is 0.2%. Vaccinated 30 out of 117,882 which is 0.02%. That number becomes less than half the older you get , nearly to the point where the vaccine seems useless in the over 80's. 1365 deaths, 147 of them unvaccinated. The vaccine clearly helps with hospitalisations in the younger populace which is obviously a great benefit. But the spread of infections is clearly not in the unvaccinated which is alarming, especially in the 40-49 age group. Apart from under 18's where they are mixing the most so to be expected anyway. All infection rates are higher amongst the vaccinated. Obviously this data is only over 3 weeks but it's worrying. Anyone care to explain why infection rates amongst the vaccinated are so high? If anything its the vaccinated that should be denied entry to anything in regards to this data if you wanted to stop the spread. I'm doubled vaccinated btw, pro vaccine but there is something very wrong going on! One other observation in the under 18's. 398,000 cases and 5 deaths, zero point in anyone under 18 risking themselves for this vaccine!

    2 Intensive care admissions prevented and 3 - 17 cases of myocarditis. No wonder no one wants their children vaccinated. Stupidity of some of the older people on here baffles me! Who would seriously consider giving a 12 year old this vaccine? Especially when the JCVI said they shouldn't have it!

    Mareks disease in chickens, one example. So no not really far from scientific reality? Are you a scientist? No!!

    I want a FAT tax as well, everyone who is fat shouldn't be allowed in any restaurant, should be a certain weight to work, as they are usually too lazy and slower than us at a healthy weight. Are a huge drain on society and the health system. Shouldn't be allowed on holiday, or have to pay more as they're carrying extra weight on board. Their personal choice of being fat is a greater drain on finances and the health system than someone not taking a vaccine to an infection (not disease). Did all that sound a bit stupid? Because that's exactly what you sound like!!

    Of course and I respect your opinion. I understand it's not as simple as I state, and your right there is a number of demographics that will be effected more than others. My view on society is the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. That's not to say I want them disregarded. I would rather things are put in place to protect those that need protecting but not at the expense of others. Specific shopping and doctors appointment times for example and shelter workers that need it. Those kinds of measures don't need to effect wider society. I shouldn't of got involved in commenting really but couldn't help myself. Short statements never give a full reflection. I usually only come on to read to help with our move to Oz. Winding down at work with nothing much to do will do that to you. Take it easy everyone I'm sure the end will be in sight soon!

    No you don't KNOW it will likely have that impact and there is no data for it! They both may be a respiratory virus but they are completely different viruses! Lets deal with facts and figures please rather than conjecture! We are talking about a virus with a 99% survival rate as if its the plague! That's fact, the math's is there, no argument to be had! To risk economic ruin, increase in crime, drug use, job losses, I could go on and on about a vast array of social issues just to save Doris down the street in her flat is idiotic. Call me callous cold whatever you want 7.5 billion people on the planet, won't be long before you start seeing deaths on a scale that's unimaginable. You'll be alright though top 1% of wealthiest people in the world, worrying about a virus with a 99% survival rate!

    The system is not fit for purpose and hasn't been for a good while now. The NHS was a good idea but cuts, poor management and an increase in population as you say, has brought it to the brink of collapse, not covid. We can sit here and argue all day who is to blame, obviously we can't turn this into a political discussion. But this could be what we need to push it over the edge and into privatisation. No company would of ever have been run this badly and if they did they would of gone bust decades ago. It is a sinking money pit, failing everyone at a basic level now. I quoted how many are now staying in hospital "39,000 people in hospital in January with covid related illness at a given time. It's now down to 8,340." How long do you want restrictions in place for? Genuine question, until it's eradicated? What is the answer? Suicide rate hit 16.9 deaths per 100,000 in 2020. Dusty plains posted out some figures to me showing 11.63 deaths per a million due to covid currently. Can you see why I believe there is no justification for these measures.
