Common sense seems to have prevailed:

Either way don't mind tbh, at least someone in this bloody state would be out there having some fun.

I mean, it's not like we'd flip our lid if we saw Eddie at a Collingwood game played here COVID style.

Decided to make use of the 25km limit... there are a LOT of people not wearing their masks properly though. Like probably 30% are wearing it properly.

Lots with their noses hanging out or the mask pulled down under their chins 🙄 some with exhalation filters, fair few just not wearing one at all.

I was having a second try at reading this article on why Vitamin D could have a protective effect against COVID-19. There was a lot of technical jargon and I started to skim again as I lost the thread, then one word jumped out at me and I was happy - I knew that word!

See below:
“From a mechanistic angle, there are good reasons to postulate that vitamin D favourably modulates host responses to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), both in the early viraemic and later hyperinflammatory phases of COVID-19. Vitamin D metabolites have long been known to support innate antiviral effector mechanisms, including induction of antimicrobial peptides and autophagy”

Dank ahead of the curve on flattening the curve.

Surely SA would want more than 3k tests yesterday?
I think it's a matter of being caught on the hop. No cases for months then cases out of nowhere. Testing facilities despite not closing, weren't ready for the sudden influx.

Heard they scaled up with more popups today and got through double.

Interesting times.

Typical ******* SA. Always 6 months behind Vic. Watch out, WA will be in lockdown in 2022.

6 days.... weird length for a lockdown, I fully expect it to go longer.
They are saying that the incubation period for this particular strain of the virus is only 3 days (compared to up to 14 days for the more common strain) and that is one of the reasons a shorter lockdown is possible.

Yeah I get that, it's just a quantum shift in approach to anything we've seen, hence hard to see us coming good so quick. Good luck to us if it works out though.

I think they’re doing 6 harsh days lockdown, then 8 days of yet to be announced restrictions. So 14 days all up.

I think it's a good response by the SA government. A lockdown is full on, but they have gone early and hopefully this can nip it in the bud as quick as possible.

oh sorry - no, the thought that there is a strain of 3 days incubation Vs 14 incubation is ridiculous. That kind of thinking will end badly.
Nicola Spurrier won't fu** around. If the lockdown needs to be extended it will be. She only cares about peoples lives, if the 3 day thing is disproven then we'll be home longer.

What has sent us into lockdown is the infectious guy working at a pizza bar. Potentially every pizza sold including the cardboard boxes could be carrying the virus and the spread has the potential to go far and wide, especially if a 3 day incubation period.

yeah sorry bro, I'm just an ignorant Victorian who has been in a hard lock down for the last 6 months. Apologies - I'm speaking out of line.
