Crop Circles: Alien Messages or Man-Made Hoaxes?
"One of the first stories that got people talking about crop circles began one morning in january nineteen sixty six when banana farmer george pedley entirely a town in north queensland australia was driving his tractor through his farm passed a lagoon. George hurt a high pitched hissing. Sound assuming it was a pierce tire. He stopped the tractor to check but immediately saw what he later described as a flying saucer. Rise up at great speed from the lagoon and sip away disappearing into a cloud of blue vapor after registering his complete shock. He went to investigate the site from which he saw the object rise there in the lagoon. George found what looked almost like a massive nest of flattened reads fused together floating on the surface of the water spinning clockwise. It was almost thirty feet across later in the day. George called his friend albert to check it out. It seems to me if you see a flying saucer and a floating nest from where it took off you call someone immediately but george was like. Wow i just saw. Ufo oh well. These bananas are gonna pick themselves. Maybe he was a man who has priorities in order one harvest bananas to call friend about ufo citing when albert got to the lagoon. He waited out in to get a closer look and notice that the reads weren't just bent over but rather it looked like they'd been pulled up by their roots at this point. One of the men alerted the media. I'm guessing it was albert since george seemed to be taking a slightly more lazy fair approach to the whole thing when the local press arrived to more smaller circles were found in one. The reads went clockwise. Counterclockwise also found was a six by five foot rectangle of empty space in the reeds where the reads it seemingly been pulled up from their roots and were missing completely

"queensland" Discussed on WBUR
"Queensland in Australia. Psychologist Tyler Okimoto does more than explore all the ways apologies don't work or can go wrong. He also looks at when apologies work how to apologize Better and why we should Tyler. You ran an experiment that measured how likely people want to think an apology was genuine. And you found a connection with the expression of remorse. Can you tell me what you found? You know, one of the things that people are really looking for. Another apology is sincere belief that the individual who's apologizing is remorseful for their actions. In fact, judgments of remorse and sincerity of that remorse are really Influential and changing whether or not people are willing to forgive. After an apology. What kind of expressions of remorse did you study? So we looked at a bunch of different sorts of expressions. You know, we looked at traditional apologies, so the words that people say the meaning behind them. We also looked at physical displays Things like tears, Things like your body posture. In a way, those nonverbal gestures are apparently a little bit involuntary. And so when you see individuals seeming to lose control with their emotions with their feelings of remorse and regret, then it signals to us that what they're saying is actually true. In fact, it's so true that they're losing control there crying. They're flopping over in a gesture of submission, so that's what makes a good apology is all of the pieces around it. Not just the words themselves. Um I'm thinking of a study by Alison Woodbrook, who examined apologies at parole hearings for crimes ranging from speeding to murder. And she found apologies with a promise of good future behavior will more effective, whereas apologies that included an explanation of why the transgression occurred tended to be ineffective. What is that telling us, Tyler Well, that finding is actually quite consistent with what we find in the psychology literature. There's really two aspects to the reconciliation process. There's the backward looking trying to make sense and come to a shared understanding about what happened. Trying to understand the other person's perspective on what happens, trying to share your own perspective on what happened and come to some agreement about what the offense was itself and what my responsibility was in that. Then the other half of it is the forward thinking the future focused aspect of the apology, which is really what's going to happen from now on, you know what people are often looking for is a promise of future behavior. And some action that begins to evidence your willingness to move towards that future behavior. The researchers Cindy France, found that apologizing too early can make apologies less effective. What's what's going on here, Tyler If you apologize and a knee jerk sort of way, then it really does come off like a knee jerk apology, But at the same time if you delay too long and then apologize later on down the track it it really comes off as Oh, well, you know, they tried to get away with not apologizing, but then finally caved to the pressure. And so so there does seem to be some sweet spot. About where the apology should occur in some of the research that we've done, we actually looked at this timing pattern within Intergroup. Apologies and What we found. Is this problem with delays to where if you wait too long it comes off as you know, cold and calculated insincere, and you only did it because you had to. But we did find a little bit of an antidote. If the offender group the transgressor group is using that time for something positive is using that time to reflect, Then the delay can actually turn out to be a good thing. Right. So, for example, if In the apology, you say, I know it's been a few weeks. The reason why we took that time is because we wanted to really understand the victims and really speak with them to recognize and understand their perspectives before we could make an appropriate response. So in that sense Then that delay can be a good thing. But in absence of that, in absence of an explanation, then it can be problematic. It's really interesting, Tyler because as you're talking, I'm seeing how complex this issue is because the.

Why Unique People Are More Attractive
"Well this is good news for me. And i'd bet some of you listening. The bbc's says that unique and nonconformist people are more attractive. Bbc futures modern love column set out to learn whether there was one ideal trait one universal standard of beauty that humans select for and which is therefore become dominant over time. But the problem they quickly encountered is that even if a certain traits seems to be near universally desirable for example some researchers have looked back over time from five hundred bc two now and been able to identify the hourglass shape as an idealized figure for women the fact that not every human has those traits seems to work against the selection arguments so if not that then what gives jeanne beauvais and evolutionary biologist at northumbria university who conducted one of the studies on women's waist to hip ratios throughout history told the bbc quote that this preference arose simply because wider hips and a narrow waist communicate that a woman is of a reproductive age but not old and that she has given birth a fewer number of times. One thing that seems to really hold is that traits that are attractive in women are often queues of age and also parody. The number of times she has given birth says beauvais they are really closely related to attractiveness and quotes so attractive traits. At least like that one are not linked to genes and therefore not a form of sexual selection and thus why we don't look the same like some animals and this was backed up by two thousand. Fourteen study led by psychologists said the university of queensland that had straight men and women rate computer generated body shapes of the opposite gender with each body varying slightly in twenty four different areas like hip ratio height shoulder width etc. According to bbc for men choosing women body mass was the first priority with men choosing smaller women. It took a long time. Though for traits we commonly think of as important like breast size to matter at all and like wise waist to hip ratio was only really later

It still hasn't anyone even though time is both flying and travelling at a snail's pace but normally one of the things that we keep hearing about over the past few weeks and months is variant. So we we were all very critical of donald trump when he was talking about the china virus and the wuhan virus. But then since then we've been talking about the uk strain in the south african strain. And then yesterday all this week we've been hearing about a russian variant. That's popped up in queensland. So firstly what does it even mean and secondly doing it a better way of naming these virus variance where we're gonna way of naming them. It's just pretty obscure so. The russian variance so called is has the numbers three one seven at the end of it and it is a bit unfair naming them according to where they were i noticed or discovered so britain said africa brazil. New york california russia. It's not very helpful at all because it just sparks. Fear yet. A new variant. What does it actually mean. There's lots and lots of variance. And if i can take us back. Just a little less than a year is that even then there were variants developing and people panicking about them at that point and the bedford lab. Which was really one of the first labs to get into sequencing the variance in tracking them. Globally they found that in fact there was very little change in behavior between the variants. It was more. The people change their behavior but not the virus and that's only recently changed and it's only changed with two or three variants so it's changed with the south african variants. It seems to probably be more Contagious and certainly more vaccine resistant. The brazilian variant. We still don't know enough about that but that looks as if it's more contagious. And certainly also look. Civic could be vaccine partly packed vaccine resistant. The uk one. It's more about contagious. Nece and the american ones so far just not sure what their behavioral changes so more and more. We're seeing various but for every one of these variants you're seeing that are lots and lots of other ones which simply track the evolution of the virus and don't really mean anything and reportedly this variant which is three one seven being called the russian variant. Just seems to be one of these variants which has been thrown off by the virus through replication. And probably doesn't mean very much at all so one of the other pieces of lingo that we've been hearing this idea variant of concern and some of the naming conventions have the are see in them as well as like there's the be one one seven top naming convention and then this other naming conventions which just makes it even more confusing. What makes a variant of very of concern versus just add variant of not concerned. Just curiosity is. I'm sure that that is actually standardized internationally but it would just mean that. There is evidence that it's transmitting more than other viruses muscling other viruses out the ways so for example. The uk barely has muscled other variance out of the way. It's presumed to be more contagious. But probably less contagious than we originally thought the brazilian very. We've talked about it on a corona cast. It seems to be infecting people who were previously infected with the let's call it the wuhan variant which is really the regional virus to come out of china and the south african variants is also almost certainly able to reinfect from the previous one which also and there is evidence of reduced vaccine. Efficacy is gets this concern label when there's evidence that it is behaving differently and potentially dangerously
What happens if you get the wrong dose?
"And so norman vaccine relative happening the government indicated earlier this week. That in the role that they were going to be mistakes made and we saw one of your day. We saw an idea year old man and a ninety four year old woman in brisbane though given the incorrect dose of the five vaccine and they're not sure it's all under investigation at the moment. They may have been given up to four times the amount of vaccine. So can you guys on a vaccine is it. Is it a safety problem. And what have health authorities done right and wrong in this situation. Well the first thing i want to do is give a huge shy type on this to both the commonwealth and queensland health because this is the textbook way so if you are feeling a corpus are unsettled about this in terms of the rollout of the vaccine i on the other hand find this reassuring hugely reassuring because what happened here was. Let's just go through it. There was a mistake. Made the nurse notice it and called it out and the authorities have not hidden it. They've been transparent about it and there's going to be an investigation and we'll learn from it. That's exactly the way safety and quality should work in healthcare. Mistakes will occur all the time. This just not happen more than once. It's unfortunate for the people who experienced them but human error is inevitable but the way to deal with it. Is that anybody who sees a mistake. Be able to call it out so for example if you're a daughter scrub nursing theater and you see a senior surgeon to making a mistake you call them out on and you are transparent about it. You don't hide it and so nothing has been hidden here since gives me huge confidence that the system is going to be safe and protect against human error. So i'm i'm reassured. By second thing is what about the man and the woman who were immunized. Is this a risk for them. The have been trials of the pfizer vaccine where they have tried out higher doses and my understanding is that those higher doses where safe did not produce side effects. And i think what's happened probably over. The course of the trial is to preserve the vaccine. They've tried to fight the lowest does. That's most effective and that'll be the does that's being administered. Not in theory. You could possibly get out of over reaction in the immune system. That's possible particularly with these mini vaccines but the fact that these people are elderly. They've got reduced immunity in the first place. And it's unlikely you're going to get that problem so you can have problems with too much vaccine. But hopefully they will be fine
Latest Melbourne hotel quarantine leak proves 'we're not learning'
"Happened in melbourne's melbourne's now in a five day down because of a hotel quarantine skype and we need your wisdom on it. Nominee basically. What we've seen is there was an escape from high to- quarantine that's a couple of times in the last few weeks and months all ever ustralia but unlike what happened in western australia and queensland they it's lead to more cases than just one or two zero so over the weekend we've seen another cases come out A few more exposure sites being recommended that people who were they're going get tested and isolate so the question is is five days going to be enough for victoria to bring these quarantine lake under control from reports. Seems clear that for a short period of time the contact tracing hesitate to use words Lost the plot but the behind it could be because it's a variant purdue could've conceivably happened with the wuhan virus as well is it's very infectious foreigners anyway and you've had a bit of escape and that's the problem that they're chasing a bit in melbourne and i think the the tracing commander in victoria does excellent work probably was prematurely the other day when he said they're on top of it you know i don't think they wear on top of that day and it's just got a beat out in the question is how much virus there is out there. There's positive sewage from various places including cobra. Where interestingly the was this private event where there's it seems to have been a bit of a spreading events how much spreading event we've remains to be seen and yet again we see with his forest that it's cluster-based that you get clusters so you're gonna cost situation in the holiday inn and then goes to other areas where you can get further sub clusters if you like developing the question is just to what extent you've got other clusters going and the extent to which they're tying them dina what's really good. News is a lot of victorians are coming forward for testing. The now seem to be on top of the contact tracing at least according to the press conference yesterday and they're the people who are becoming positive already in quarantine which is really good news artan about although it's relatively recent moved into quarantine see don't know backtracking the extent to which they were spreading the virus before they became positive. So my guess is the. I can't really guess because no inside information but what to watch for is just. How many new cases develop each states. If you remember from western australia queensland particularly when they went to short shot lockdowns zero cases each day's me say well. Why did they bother doing it here. There are not zero cases each day but now cases coming forward questions what happens today but if there are more cases each day particularly new venues than they are going to be a bit anxious about letting this go on wednesday so we'll just need to wait and see. unfortunately there's no crystal ball gazing. You mentioned just now this idea of a short short incubation period which is something that we've sort of his that it's language that's been used almost every time this being an outbreak so we heard it in south australia and in sydney last year as well. Is there any evidence that this time. They truly is a shorter incubation period. Looking at national evidence. No it's more that you the you're much more likely to spread it to other people are not the reproduction number is more like three point. Four and two point five with the wuhan version of the virus. The number of people that you're likely to infect if it was going on chick to live in faith but which is an artificial number because if you look at say the crossroads motel they are not there. I don't know guessing. But fifteen maybe fifteen people or something like that because it spreads and clusters the are not as average when you can get into super spanning the are not becomes really quite large and scary and with this new variant presumably even larger and scarier. And then you get people emerging probably with a lot of virus on board early on who helped the super spreading to a car and that makes it looks as the incubation period is shorter. It's just i think they've got a viral load. That develops faster rather than the the condition period being shorter luck with other times that we've seen a short shop look down as the company to fly over this idea of a five day quarantine. Is it an overreaction. I don't believe it is controlled. Every time i say it but the fact is you've got this new variant around. There's increasing information from britain that it's more virulent that there may be hospitalization and maybe even har- death rate with it still uncertain so i don't think it is and i think it's just a question of getting things under control and letting the contact tracers get on top of it really quickly and not really damaging and it's been damaging weekend for the restaurant trades in victoria with valentine's day we can also the lunar new year but it's an important thing to do and you if you go back to the middle of last year. If tornado had done this kind of thing probably for about two weeks just says it was spreading in the northwest corridor. They wouldn't almost certainly have had a lockdown lasting well over hundred
What's going on in Melbourne's quarantine hotels?
"So we'll let start today with a chat about melvin quarantine hotel situation because they've had a few cases that have. They're all sort of clustered around this one hotel there year the holiday inn at melbourne airport. It's been several cases that have come from it now. And it's clearly wired the victorian government enough for them to close it down. Move everyone from it. For a deep clean as the premier daniel andrews explained yesterday. They were several cases. I suppose we can refer to them. One was the the authorized officer. The other one was a food and beverage attendant and then the third case was a hotel resident and all of them they think are linked back to the theory that that going and calling it the moment. Cold the nebulizer theory. So that sounds intriguing. And we'll unpack that in a little bit but to save vilnai from speculating for completely unqualified physicians. We brought in an actual expert today. Dr kirsty short. Who's a just from the university of queensland. Welcome kisdi high so kirsty. This theory the nebulizer theories based on this idea that someone in the hotel was using and as in one of those medical devices that can help deliver a medicine to someone that can also create aerosols. Does this add more to our knowledge. About how corona virus does doesn't transmit through the air while look. I think there's been a lot of debate about this throughout the pandemic and other role gist. You know i've never seen this as a black and white issue because you never going to have a virus that is hundred percent aircel and you never going to have a mars. That's hundred percent droplet. You're just going to have in some circumstances it's arizo transmission and in some circumstances it's droplet transmission so we've always sort of suspected in high risk procedures like integration of patients with curved That that could be an aerosol generating procedure. And i suspect probably what's happening in these toe quarantine situations is. We are getting rather unfortunate string or unlucky string of events whereby you on maybe having aerosols generated in the room for whatever reason be nebulizer others. And then what you've got to remember. Is that in facilities way. You where. I work in the laboratory where you work with the actual vars. It's all negative pressure. So that means that when you open daw- the epcot come out and it stays in the room but these hotels onto signed as quarantine facilities. Sorry theoretically what could happen is an individual. There could be lots of ours. Air sliced in the room and individual could open the door. And then somebody who is walking past or the virus could stay in the f. x. amount of time as the was drawn into the corridor with the door being arpan. Sorry these all sound. Like very pedantic risks i guess but when when leukaemia detect every single case of infection they are really really
Australia will lift weekly caps on international arrivals in an effort to get stranded citizens home
"Be back but first. Let's begin with a roundup of the latest airline and frequent flyer news from the past fortnight and fiscally moist ustralian states will restore their international arrival caps to pre-january levels from monday. The fifteenth of february following a decision at yesterday's national cabinet meeting but western australia will retain its reduced arrival cap of just five hundred twelve passengers per week until further notice as perf emerged yesterday from its five day. Covid nineteen lockdown from the fifteenth of february new south. Wales will again double number of passengers at takes per week to just over three thousand queensland will restore its capacity from five hundred to a thousand a week and victoria will increase slightly as well as the stralia. The increase in rival caps is welcome news of course for the many trillion. Still desperately trying to return home from overseas but even with lost months capacity increase out the howard springs facility near darwin. The new arrival caps as of february are still below the old caps that were in place before January when the government temporarily half those caps in in many of the states prior to lost month's reduction australia had the capacity to accept around six thousand nine hundred weekly arrivals overseas including three the howard springs facility. The number right now is about four thousand five hundred fifty per week and this will increase from the fifteenth of february to around six thousand. Eight hundred weekly arrivals which is still just below what it was a ago. The government recently said that around thirty six thousand trillions currently registered with dave fat as being stuck overseas and this number has been repeated many times in the media as representing the number of australians.

When might we see more cases in WA's outbreak?
"Hello welcome to khurana. Cost a daily podcast. All about the coronavirus. I'm health reported taken tyler physician and journalist alter norman swan. It's tuesday the second february. That's right and the second day of perth and surrounds his five die lockdown which they've gone into because arto quarantine worker has tested positive for. What's now being confirmed to be the strain of coronavirus. That's being called the uk strain and so norman. Seeing a five looked down. We know that it takes longer than five days for the virus to incubate in. Someone's body so i can. We talk about what you do when you're trying to control of virus in its very early stages where you'd have to say first of all five days. He's actually at the lower end of the of the incubation period. So it's almost one incubation period. Not quite so. The there are key elements of control. I is social. Distancing and lockdown is an extreme form of social distancing where you don't know where the viruses remember. This farce is not spread evenly. Eighty percent of people don't spread the virus twenty percent do and they do through clusters so this man has been all over paris. he's been may lands. Which is where he lives. He's been joondalup far north. He's been in the city and so at any one of the so he might not be a superspreader himself but he might have spread to other people who then pass it on a super spreading environment like we saw in sydney. So that's that's the problem is that you get these clusters. And the classics stay underground for a while before they burst out and reveal themselves. And that's the prospect so what they're doing here is the right thing is that they're clamping down on social distancing so the virus cannot spread any further than it already has or you minimize that so. That's one element. The second element is testing and testing has got to be in really large numbers of west australian tens of thousands. So that just in case you there's a case out there that you're not finding you just want to be sure that you're really massively testing in chance that something is out there in a random way and people have caught it where we're at surprise not just in the contact areas where you might have been in coz in mayland or or wherever so. He's talking about testing nine omen but we have seen a lot of testing and they haven't been any more cases least as of yesterday. And i think that this man might have been infected around the twenty-fifth so we're may be getting into a timeframe where we could be saying positives. Yes but the testing rates are just gathering in numbers so the weren't that many tests yesterday for a city of six million people so it got really multiply to maybe ten times that number of tests. I think there were three thousand or tests reported overnight. So that's that was only in half a day so the numbers of just got to ramp up. Then the next thing is that which is about contact tracing so the already got onto the contact tracing identified sixty or seventy people so far context. Those people have got to be quarantined regardless of their status. Because they're the most likely people who are going to become positive and in the northern beaches of sydney a very significant. I can't coach the numbers. But a very significant percentage of people who became positive in that in the clusters that remarriage from the northern beaches positive in quarantine. They were already isolated for fourteen days. So you don't want people becoming positive and about you wanted to become positive when they're home in quarantine or hotel quarantine so those are the elements of control and if it goes size the strategy or queensland then there won't be any more cases they'll have identified them under control and it may not be necessary to go the full five days but it just allows you to get things under control contact tracers to get on top of it and five days is much better than a grumbling. Thing which you really paralyzes the city for for days and days and days if not weeks which is what happened in was the under control done a great job but it lasted a long time and right through christmas so it is looked down. When are we gonna have good indication of whether we're good or whether it's more of an outbreak large testing numbers. Not finding anybody. So let's take some questions from our audience This person saying they've heard that a vaccinated senator in the us has been infected with covid after getting shot. And we know that there's a proportion of people who become infected that have ongoing health issues. Do we know whether someone who's had the coronavirus vaccine is more or less or the same amount likely to get long term health problems from covid. We don't know that yet. there is an right. There is a relationship between severity infection in vancouver but people who get mild infection do get it as well so we don't know the answer to that question. We'll only know as the months go by often when people get infected is after the first does the second does. And that's been the situation in israel as well so you do get partial protection but not for protection so that we don't we just don't know the answer to that question
Is WA overreacting by locking down so much?
"Hello this is. Corona cast a daily podcast. All about the coronavirus. I'm health reported teigen. Tulloch position journalist alter norman swan. It's monday the first of february. That's right and yesterday. We were mocking the longest stretch. Nationwide without any luck transmission since february last year was fourteen consecutive days. But we've seen that stretch broken With a case announced in western australia yesterday norman male cortel quarantine security guard in his twenties. Who was working at the sheraton four points quarantine hotel and w i has not surprisingly jumped really hot on the web announced a really tough five lockdown basically. No one's going anywhere for five days until they figure out what's going on so one case and a really tough five day lockdown. Is this an overreaction. Or is this the right level of reaction. No i think it's the right level of reaction and the mandatory masks as well and they've just done everything to get this under control. It's one person but this person's been to a lot of different areas potentially a lot of contacts. Luckily so far his flatmates were are negative and they would be the people most at risk so the may well be very little if any spread here. But you just don't know and it's possible that he's got the uk variant of the virus since the uk very was on. That was on the floor of the people. He was speaking after him so one of the things they're doing is they're canceling weddings for the next five days like you say this Mosques are expected to be in place and a lot of other measures that have been put into place in norman. You've said basically since the very start of this podcast. If people can bear the cost him on set far back that the way to get on top of these fires is to go in hard into going to ease their limit to the hardness and early. Nece that you are prepared to endorse. This is still within your your realm if you want to control this virus. There's only one thing that works when you really when you when you don't know where the virus is and that is a longtime which stops people coming in contact with each other and running the risk of spreading the virus. You got to keep the virus away from other people. So the lockdown is what works now. There's no question. As new south wales has shown that guerrilla good contact tracing high testing ritz contact tracing. An isolationist required does make a difference and can get under control. But that's taken weeks in new south wales when there's been no uk variant the uk variant as people listening to chronic will know eddie homes on from the university of sydney a little while ago. Is that the wuhan. Virus spreads from one person to about two point five the uk variant spreads from one person to about three point four. That's probably the best way of thinking about it. Robin the percentage is a fifty percent or seventy percent more contagious so it is a lot more contagious and remember. This is a virus that spreads in clusters rather than evenly spread through the community. That's why these venues are so important to come to actually pin down get tested. Who were at those venues at those times published by the west australian government so it could be like southeasterly korea and queensland where it turned out to be a fisher on nice vizner to have and they're able to lift the lockdown early and that's great but a three four or five day locked on is much better than some stopping and starting not controlling the the virus which is what they've done and look what happens and the other problem and w. unlike new south wales and unlike victoria is they haven't had any community spread for ages knives since early be early last year and so people had returned to normal soon. Can't expect them to kind of do half of a social isolation process. You've really got to pull the whole population back. And then just your sees it up for five days and the you know the good news is likely to be that there hasn't spread but it's possible has in which case just got to give under

Professor Anton Lectures in politics at Griffith University in Brisbane. Okay. So we all remember the coalition's surprise victory in las cheese federal election, and at the time it was largely attributed to Queensland so much so that the Labor Party's gone to a great deal of trouble since then trying to. Work out what voters in that state want from an all in all the whole episode kind of created this impression that Queensland. Is this political enigma? Do you agree. Yes Queensland is and always has been a political a `Nigma because of you know a bunch of characteristics of that. mixed demography, and it's decentralisation and is is that regional kinda makeup? That decentralisation is that the key thing and he said, can you kind of explain why? What why? That's significant? Yeah.

You've said that a few times that Victoria isn't being transparent and when all is been watching the presses everyday, they're saying that they do feel like there's a lot of transparency there. So what are you referring to when you say that is digging darn and being completely open for example, by the hospital spread and we tend to find about find out that late we tend to find out. How we don't really know how it's being transmitted. We'd been misled I think about how has been transmitted because the minister at one point said only ten or fifteen percent of being caught in hospitals clearly, not the case moisture product being caught in hospitals. Possibly, not from patients maybe in the tea room and other places where they could be passing it on. But we haven't sorted that out. What we don't know is not where of knowing is whether patients have caught it from healthcare workers one hope that hasn't happened, but we haven't heard that statistic either and and why we should know about this is really the two areas that seem to be the problem. Yes. There still some problem with food storage facilities, and so on and outbreaks stemming from them, and those are always at risk. But largely, we have aged care residents have healthcare workers and both age care and in hospitals, and if you subtract them from the total, there aren't many cases left in Victoria from community spread. So we towards doing really well but if the up they've got be up front about their hospital problem. So that, we can all share in that and that means we don't. You know when we go in as a patient, we're just careful or there's no are we know that there's no patient spread? Healthcare worker to healthcare worker because people are arriving late at hospital with serious conditions which need major interventions and they need to be sure that the hospitals are safe and I think it creates doubt if they're not being entirely open perhaps were political reasons. So I think those are the reasons why should they just got to be straight and and tell us what the statistics are and how they're dealing with 'cause they really get on top of the hospital situation on top of aged care. The pretty close to solving the problem in Victoria. Really, and we've got a question from sue about people who are immune compromised.

The Oxford vaccine is a live vaccine. Chimpanzee virus it's been used extensively or many years in trials of malaria facts and children boiler mayors and others are tested vaccine technology. I'm not aware of what the evidence is in Immuno compromised. People have sadly been used in environments where there is lots of HIV AIDS in Africa for example. The University of Queensland Var, vaccine is not alive virus. It's a it's a traditional vaccine in some ways, which we're you've got an agile stimulates the immune system to which they attach a bit of synthesized DNA recombinant DNA, made in vats and sorts the part of the DNA of the spike protein, and then that stimulates an immune response directly. So it doesn't require a virus and the vaccine produced by MODERNA and some other companies. Around the world it's not a virus either..

They're worried to see some community transmission happening here. . It's linked to a juvenile detention center and we know that I'm prison outbreaks problematic because you've got people in close quarters but they are definitely making some changes to the sorts of restrictions I brought in based on what's happened in Victoria. . So nothing's really changed in terms of businesses, , but the number of people that you can have visiting a household or like private gatherings outside Your House that's been what's restricted and that's based on the Victorian experience that some of those clusters happened early on, , we're really linked to lodge family networks rather than sort of transmissions happening at businesses. .

So it's this is domestic kits at families is family weightings, , family events, , funerals, and , so on. . People are hugging close together. . And P. . The opportunity for Aerosol spread early on and on that one of the other things that's being mentioned much earlier in this Queensland outbreak than happened in Victoria is they're advising people to wear masks. .

It's just an extra layer of protection even if there's not much virus around, , you just don't aware it is what about where you are normally in New South Wales Wales, , they seem to be getting the unknowns down to a low number, , which is the which is the statistic that worries everybody Wine Victoria when interstate for lockdown is that they just far too many people where they didn't know where they're getting virus form. .

On a day-to-day basis, , he really got to look at the running average and what's happening in terms of the train, , but the train these. . Small numbers and increasingly knowing where the virus is coming from. . Obviously, , we would all prefer to have zero spread whatsoever but New South Wales seems to have maintained a low level that has been more or less consistent. . Is that maybe? ? A different way of living with the virus long term. . I'm not sure that that's what they're. . Amy's. . They've said in the past that they're not aiming for zero spread. . But. . There's enough anxiety around even at low levels that you can't quite relax. . But if the couldn't get it done two zero spread and I assume that are trying incredibly hard to do so. . And you probably could live with this but you living with a situation where they probably going to mandate masks robin just ask people to wear masks. . And and have quite strict social distancing. .

"Alter Norman swollen. It's Thursday the fourth of July. So we've been talking a lot of that Victoria recently, but it's time to change it up a bit. We've got Queensland closing its borders to Sydney again, but we've seen to New People in Queensland test positive have come from Victoria over the last couple of days. is closing the border to Sydney an overreaction. It is uncertain. What's happening in Sydney at the moment I should declare an interest teagan. So that just completely straits on Corona cast I had boot. A long weekend in far north. Queensland, and this is totally stuffed up. So you and the corner cast audience can judge just fear my commentary is. Giving up just plowed all that money away. But amy coming back to the point just made me feel better telling you are so look, it's not absolutely clear how much forest there isn't sitting at the moment. The cases are still mid to high teens there more clusters emerging. There are one or two cases that they've got where they don't know where they've caught the infection. So. Sydney is, as the Premier Gladys Birgit claims been saying on a knife edge and it could get worse. And, the key thing in this, which we've been saying in corona cast for a long time now is that you go in hard and you go in early. Therefore, think is probably quite reasonable that Queensland shuts its borders to people from Greater Sydney because they don't know what's going on. Even if it does inconvenience, you just want people to know how fair my country is. Here's the big test, but seriously, it's I think coming going into early is the right thing to do the question is, is New South Wales going hard enough early enough I. Don't mean lockdown I do mean though masks and social distancing and given the masks probably improved social distancing because it's a sign. To, keep away and I think probably the time has come for Sydney to mandate masks, public transport cinemas in supermarkets, and so on. Probably about time to say, maybe we should have a week or two off, gymnasia? Even though they haven't been a prominent feature of this, there are one or two gyms in Sydney which are implicated in spread with clusters. and. Being super careful in restaurants with going back down to even fewer guests perhaps in restaurants. And just get this under control because if you. and. That's not going to lockdown. An restaurants suffer out of this. is just really clamping things down where you can, and there's very little economic cost to say to people..
