And why just Covid? If you locked up/deported all HIV sufferers, you could have an 'HIV zero' policy too. 

Umm. Maybe if they had a vaccine for HIV, the would have an HIV zero policy as well. And why would you lockup or deport the sufferers? Nobody is doing that. Covid sufferers quarantine for two weeks or so until they are no longer infectious. Just common sense.

The hit from Covid has not been as bad as it might have been...

Yeah. Because lockdowns. Innit.

The UK had a substantial number of deaths, severe lockdowns and is governed by clowns, but I'd rather be here as we vaccinate and live with residual covid, than be locked in an isolated bubble for keeps.

And why just Covid? If you locked up/deported all HIV sufferers, you could have an 'HIV zero' policy too. Then you could start on those with Hep. A.

The world got through everything from the Black Death to the 1918 flu by taking a hit and getting on with it. The hit from Covid has not been as bad as it might have been and we now have vaccines.

Get vaccinated and get on with life.

Did I read correctly that the state of NSW went into full lockdown because there were TWO covid related deaths?!? My god.... this is not worth destroying your economy

No worries on that, the Australian economy is thriving.

Attilathehungry - Did I read correctly that the state of NSW went into full lockdown because there were TWO covid related deaths?!? My god.... this is not worth destroying your economy, nor destroying your freedoms.

Perhaps you would not be so flippant if one of those deaths was your mother or wife.

The purpose of these lockdowns is to help the economy. A few weeks of hardship in a couple of cities is better than years of battling the virus nationally.

And you can't realistically get cases to zero, with or without lockdowns. SARS-CoV-2 will drift into the background but is highly unlikely to die off completely. Trying to get to zero cases will cause more and bigger problems than it solves.

Yes we can. New Zealand have done it.

And what have these protesters achieved? Longer lockdown due to them not following the rules and creating a superspreader moment.

It's not about health, it never was. It's about obedience. And obedience will be backed by force at your expense.

Spew your toxic conspiracy theories on some other forum. Pure misinformation.

And go on, try refuting what I posted with verifiable facts.

That's right, you can't.

You're either illiterate or gaslighting.

I hope it's the former, but suspect it's the latter.

No you didn't read correctly. Or at least you disingenuously interpreted the motives. Lockdown is about cases not deaths. Get cases to zero in the community and you have peace.

My god.... this is not worth destroying your economy, nor destroying your freedoms.

True. Which is why they didn't destroy their economy and have the most freedoms in the world (spare New Zealand).

You might want to ask all the people whose small businesses have been destroyed and can't get enough assistance to stay afloat before you claim things are going along swimmingly. The tax base took a huge hit from lockdowns, so governments had to get the money from somewhere to fund their record deficits - borrowings and printing money, where applicable. Borrowings have to be paid back, and money printing is likely to eventually trigger inflation unless the value of goods and services rise to keep pace. And who's going to pay for it? You.

And you can't realistically get cases to zero, with or without lockdowns. SARS-CoV-2 will drift into the background but is highly unlikely to die off completely. Trying to get to zero cases will cause more and bigger problems than it solves.

What we have here is organised deceit involving governments, mainstream media, and corporations that are making enormous loads of money from this scam. The links I posted above are just a few fragments of evidence showing this to be the case.

Withness the police activity and follow-up after the Sydney freedom protest on Saturday. The NSW police want people to report on anyone who they knew was at the protest so as to catch and fine them for breaking the lockdown rules. Never mind that the people who make the rules don't have to make any sacrifices.

The cops and their unquestioning media are trying to manipulate public opinion by circulating a deceptive photo of a man allegedly punching a horse.

https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/two-men-charged-after-allegedly-striking-police-horses-during-anti-lockdown-protest-20210725-p58cn5.html

However, looking at the incident in context on video shows a different story altogether. The man was trying to avoid the horse's rear legs as it turned around, and then he put up his left arm either in defence or to regain balance. This was clearly NOT a punch.

This is clear deception by government and media that are going out of their way to lie to us and push a false narrative.

So happy to see Victoria and South Australia on track and I sincerely hope that Sydney and NSW can bring the numbers down to 00 community infections soon but it's unlikely when you consider the behaviour of selfish idiots like those that joined in the public protest on the weekend with no social distancing, no mask wearing and no regard for their fellow humanity.
