Played himself with the idiocracy.Trump sort of snookered himself by adopting a pattern of doing the opposite of what the science suggests in nearly every other issue, it would have t have been a massive change of mods-operandis for him to embrace the suggestions of his health advisors.
That's a very specific approach advocating one person in the state to cover up.According to Dandrews you must wear a face covering when outside of your house.
Very interesting idea! We may be a selfish and stupid lot, but we're also greedy. Imagine getting a $1,000 reward for dobbing in a neighbour flouting their self-isolation requirements. Not a bad idea actually...Okay, no more stuffing around. No more population-wide lockdowns and fining people for having KFC whilst treating the people who are genuine public health risks and threats to our economy as though they are children who have eaten too many cookies. Over 80 people who have tested positive for the virus were fined for not being home and some of those were going to work.
The strategy now shifts to a major focus on enforcement of quarantine and self-isolation.
I would propose a tenfold increase in resources allocated to spot-checking all of those that are meant to be in quarantine or self-isolating. Your door could be knocked on three or four times a day and you must be at home.
We implement a one-strike policy. The first time there is a spot check and you are not home you are subject to a criminal sanction of a hefty fine if you are meant to be self-isolating and a large fine and potential jail term if you are meant to be in quarantine. Whatsmore, if you are not there you forfeit the right to remain in your own home and will be immediately relocated to a quarantine hotel staffed by medical experts and the ADF. All your needs will be met and you will be tested regularly. You are not allowed to leave the quarantine hotel until you have returned a negative test and a doctor has signed off that you are not a threat to public health. If you attempt to leave the hotel without this happening it will be treated as a serious criminal offence and subject significant fines/jail time. Separate hotels for positive tests and those self-isolating. As soon as someone in the self-isolation hotel tests positive they get transferred to the hotel with confirmed cases where doctors, nurses etc are on hand.
Whenever someone tests positive in the community give them the option to voluntarily check into the quarantine hotel where their meals etc will be taken care of and medical help is on hand 24/7. Explain to them clearly that if they choose to quarantine at home and breach they will be subject to heavy fines, prison and immediate forced quarantine.
I know this particular item is not the Australian way but I would set up a hotline to encourage people to dob in quarantine cheats and reward them for doing so, If we knew that someone was driving dangerously drunk we would let the police know. These people flouting quarantine rules are destroying our economy, causing widespread illness, and killing our older and vulnerable fellow citizens.
And this time Andrews make sure we have the testing and contact tracing set up properly to immediately get on top of breakouts. This clearly hasn't been the case up until now.
This thing only fixes itself if we remove the infectious from the uninfected. just bloody get on with it.
