Michael Slater takes aim at Scott Morrison over India COVID travel ban, but is criticised for being a "spoiled prat"

Quote:
Former Australian cricketer Michael Slater has challenged Prime Minister Scott Morrison to "take your private jet and come and witness dead bodies" on the streets of India, doubling down on his earlier criticisms of the federal government's controversial travel ban.

Agriculture Minister David Littleproud took a swing back at Slater, saying he should "get over himself".

"This is a pandemic that he knew he was travelling in," he said.

"Yes, we granted him authority to travel but there's this thing called personal responsibility.

"Take some personal responsibility, he actually has the resources to look after himself and we're going to try and look after those Australians over there.

"But he's acting like a spoiled prat."

Aunty Gladys speaking now - eastern suburbs BBQ Zeke's wife also a Z, no-one else so far. Gold Standard State tracers found the source as a US case who went into quarantine 28/04 in Sydney. Now they need to find who was the intermediary.

Data valid as at 00:00 GMT May 5th, 2021.

Note: As not all Australian States report at the same time, the data below is based on the previous full day reporting.

12 new cases for Australia and no deaths so the CMR is 3.047%.

6 new cases and 0 deaths for NZ so CMR is 0.989% and active cases 25.

The UK had a higher 2,144 cases yesterday and 27 deaths.

Just under 43k new cases in the USA yesterday and 839 deaths sees CMR at 1.780%. Note that the USA is actually minus one day due to time differences.

Other notable points:
Global cases pass 155M, the last 1M in 2 days;
Global deaths pass 3,25M, the last 50k in 4 days;
Europe passes 45M cases;
India passes 21M cases;
India sets a new global high with 412,618 cases;

Trinidad (399);
Maldives (734);
Bahrain
(1,450);
Sri Lanka (1,939);
Nepal (8,605); and
India (412,618)

... recorded new daily highs; those in blue for the second consecutive day and those in red for a third or more consecutive day.

No countries move above the 90th percentile for their 10 day average while Ukraine drops below.

Disappointing, but not at odds with what might be expected for some countries.

Unreal, good they got tipped off and action by authorities.
Love this bit from the article and you never know who you may cross :
Five Kimia Farma employees have been arrested and are accused of washing nasal swab sticks and reusing them.
According to the South China Morning Post, two lawyers who regularly flew out of Kualanamu airport say are planning to sue Kimia Farma.

Could be alot of 00000000's in this one to pay.

Bravo, beautiful, well done! Lets hope gold standard can find the missing link....this time.

Been a busy morning at work, missed most of the presser, but it sounded pretty fiery. Was there a preemptive strike on WA and QLD?

You could borrow Israeli political speak and say “preemptive retaliation”?

Hopefully Zeke and Barbie Grillman recover promptly without serious effects.

Haha that's a good one. Might borrow it... Could come useful in some meetings.

Looks like the norfeners forgot about Aunty Arden. Bubble temporarily halted with syd, travellers will need to quarantine if been in hot spot.

TrŤs intťressantÖ

From this ABC News article

Quote:
Professor McLaws said another line of investigation would likely focus on a passenger who boarded the same flight as the returned traveller from the US and was given an exemption to quarantine at home, instead of a hotel.

"Could this particular person have visited somebody or could the person under home quarantine, not been under home quarantine and not used their QR codes?"
I, for one, would be shirty if it turns out this is the case. Further, if one takes a wild leap into historical conjecture and asks ďWhere did they get this notion?Ē - a quick review of the Northern Beaches outbreak suggests they might have quietly come to such conclusion but found it unpalatable to speak thus.

I do recall questions along similar lines were asked in previous pressers on "unknown" leaks, but it gets swatted away with contempt. One that sticks to mind was a poor soul asked if one of the previous unknown leaks was caused by a "political donor" being allowed to quarantine at home, to which Hazzard called the journo stupid and that he would not answer it. I like to gauge the situation by looking at how things are said, rather than what is actually being said.

Having heard bits of replay of yesterday's presser, it seemed unusual and different to previous ones. Very snappy and fiery. And what was the kerfuffle on the QR code question? I didn't quite understand the angst.

Dear leader still on sick leave, and contact tracers are on standby for the inevitable leaks from across the borders.

There is however an ex quarantine manager available. With a name like that I think he'll fit right in, in Byron Bay.

https://www.theage.com.au/national/v...05-p57p6g.html

Crikey, 51 reported incidents in 4 weeks! I would have sacked the SOB after 2, regardless of how "minor" they were. Fancy refusing to get a test when asked. If I was a cynic, I'd say he was an implant to sabotage the program.

India sets a new global high with 414,433 cases;

Angola (392) - the previous high on 25/10/20;
Nepal (8,970); and
India (414,433)
