So the tens of thousands of patrons heading to major sporting events in Australia’s Covid prone states are double vaxed, try to physically distance and are masked unless eating or drinking! Television footage confirms that distancing and mask wearing are out the door; I’d bet the vaccination status of some at least, would also be suspect.
The epidemic of Covid in the NT is thanks to the government opening the borders in a ‘carte Blanc’ manner to Australian states and the ACT on December 20 2021. That was the day all the good, careful and scrutinising surveillance against Covid was undone by policy change. This short sighted decision will have extremely negative long term consequences.
I love watching cricket on TV and listening to Shane Warne’s enlightening commentary. His depth of experience and breadth of knowledge of this great game, leave me open mouthed and spellbound.
In past months the NT Government said its aim was to keep the territory Covid free. Now they are saying the aim is NOT to keep Covid out, but to ensure our hospital system is not overwhelmed. Shifting goalposts is a government speciality.
