Hi @sarahw ,
Good but hot start to the New Year.
Temps in the range 36-40 deg C (96-104 F) and we haven’t had rain for a while but that is not unusual as Perth is dry between November and March averaging ~15-20 mm of rain per month
Our Fed.gov initiated a jobkeeper progamme in the early days of the virus but it is now being scaled back as the economy picks up. A national cabinet comprising all the state premiers and territory chief ministers and the prime minister of Aust. was set up in the first days of the crisis, to coordinate the response to the virus and basically have a policy that having a healthy population means a healthy economy and this means we have a controlled border to the world and sometimes even between the states when required (internal border restrictions are initiated by the state governments)
The economy here in WA (and Australia generally) has been on the improve mainly due to the fact that there has been no community transmission of the virus for more than 5 months now in WA and nearly as long or longer in the other states except Victoria and NSW where unfortunately outbreaks have occurred mainly due to breakdowns in protocol in the quarantine facilities. The only cases of the virus are usually the incoming arrivals to Aust who are in the quarantine facilities and occasionally when the person has to be moved to a hospital from the facility
Hard state borders, (no entry without permit even for residents - exemptions can be applied for but then they must still quarantine - self isolate) have been implemented on several occasions when virus outbreaks have occurred in the other states to prevent the spread and to wipe it out where it occurs
Our national border is restricted so that no citizen can leave (exemptions apply non citizens can leave at any time) and only 6000 nationals and permanent residents /week can enter and then they must quarantine for 14 days in a quarantine hotel (4-5 star at their own expense -over 100,000 have returned home since the outbreak). Airline and shipping crews, must quarantine on arrival until they depart so the skies over Aust are fairly empty but the shipping lanes are still busy.
The vaccination programme has just been announced and the rollout will begin at the end of Feb so things are looking up.
Hi @sarahw ,
Another potential voting ring or perhaps the same user, but time will tell.
Their user IDs are all consecutive (I think that the system makes them 2 numbers apart) but still they all joined nearly at the same time so maybe it is just the one user and not 3
