Let it RIP has a new meaning.
Let it R.I.P - Covid is now responsible for 11,304 deaths in Australia.
By some reports we are now ranking 2nd in the world for deaths per million people over the last seven days.
Currently there are 377,251 cases Australia wide and CONGRATULATIONS, we have now broken our record of Covid hospitalisations since records began.
But we are tough. No masks for us. Let it RIP and blow the consequences.
We now have people having Covid twice and three times.... an estimate of 300,000 by the end of the week. It appears that you can get it 12 days after you had it last.
And best of all you can spread it whilst being asymptomatic.
Those who know such things are saying that the pandemic has actually now arrived and the cases to date have just been a lead up.
Southern NSW Local Health District say:
COVID-19 cases remain high across NSW, driven by the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants. We are also seeing increasing flu cases.
Masks remain mandatory for all people over the age of 12 years in public hospitals, private health and residential aged care facilities.
We strongly recommend wearing masks in general practices and medical centres, disability care facilities, indoors and when you can’t physically distance.
Do not visit vulnerable people in high risk settings such as hospitals and aged care if you feel unwell. Get tested and stay home.
