How are people feeling about Covid-19?

Answered 1 year ago

Here in Victoria they are closing suburbs. I don’t live in those areas. My friends and I think the whole state should shut down again and borders should close. I am going about as normal got but it does feel unfair to those areas. Also all of our toilet paper is gone again.

It's crap. There's so many grey areas on rules like a lady fined for going to feed her horse etc. When they'd said you could. There's police everywhere around here and I had to go get a dog bed the first day of lockdown as our dog has an infected leg and needs to be in our of the mud..ran past a chemist at the shops so I had a 'reasonable' excuse to be out. It's crap. I so hope remote learning isn't a thing. But at the same time I know it'll probably happen and with case numbers I wouldn't like sending our boy anyway..a lot of things I've seen schools already telling people it's remote learning this term...there will be a lot of crazy mums after 6 weeks if that happens lol

Regional NSW here. We had 10 cases all up but haven’t had any active ones in well over a month. But I am worried because we are in a very touristy area and all it takes is one infected person to visit and we start all over.

In WA, great here! Back to normal, pretty much. Id like to see our borders shut until a vaccine is found. Think it’s disgusting other premiers and the PM pressuring WA to open our borders when the rest of the country is a ticking pandemic time bomb.

Keeping borders closed until a vaccine is found would be disastrous for WA’s economy. Have you actually thought through what you are suggesting?!

Yes i have considered it and i think our health is more important then the economy, and once the health side of things is sorted we can fix the economy. We need to give up the idea that things are ever going to go back as they were.

And WA is the richest state in Australia, supporting the rest of the country with our mining industry. We will be fine, as long as the borders are closed.

how would keeping borders closed ruin the economy? I admit it would be a challenge but there are ways to help. All the money a Melbourner that may spend on a holiday in Queensland typically for example, could simply be spent holidaying locally within their state. Once things settle, people need to just simply continue to spend and live normally where they can, and just do so within local suburbs, cities, states.

borders open with free travel and continued restrictions, shut downs, open ups is as likely to ruin the economy.

We are on more shit than a Weribee duck here in Vic. End of the month we will all be back to level 4 restrictions. I'm surprised we haven't put into level 4 atleast for metropolitan Melbourne anyway.

Slowly but surely we are losing the battle. Queens Birthday long weekend and the BLM rally didn't help the cause.

People completely dropped the ball with social distancing. This is the price we are paying for our own selfishness and only considering our own needs

agree. There was limited community transmission at the start. Then restrictions ease plus the protests and suddenly we are worse off than before in some parts. They are saying it hasn't come from the protests, but if you were a protester - would you be telling them you were at the protests and risk having more of them forcefully shut down? I doubt they would be honest and say, and risk having everyone even more against the protests. In that mass of crowds, it seems highly unlikely that there has been NO transmission from that what so ever.

Im over it, I stayed home for months obeyed all the rules even skipped medical appointments (non urgent) to be safe. Wore masks but they fogged my glasses up so atopped. But I sanitise and wash my hands all day anyway normally so its not an imposition to me doing it.

I am over people not obeying the rules such as protesters, people travelling back to Melb not having tests and NOT isolating. They have made us a laughing stock.

Its not hard to distance and follow rules. Personally if they are on benifits it should be stopped until they obey rules. Actions should have sufficient consequences!

Not given more money free rent etc

Well letting them get away with it only punishes everyone else who geta ill from them sharing. Im not staying home for months again so people can flount rules. Not when i dont receive extra payments while isolating.. how selfiah can they be.

The reason Victoria's numbers are so high is the number of tests being conducted. If all the other states were testing to that level I am sure theirs would be higher too. That being said if people did the right thing, we wouldn't be where we are now. The selfishness is astounding. Also if they want more people to be tested, employ more people to do the processing - it currently takes upwards of 5 days to get results! Nobody can afford a week off work every time they get a sniffle in Winter!

In Qld and although I am extremely happy we are very low in numbers. I am unsure about opening the boarders. But I live in a very touristy beach suburb and its full of people. Its very busy and people are spending money to help the economy here. If we open the boarders, I feel one person is all we need to be where Victoria is. All those whinging about the economy, it will be fine. Its when we have to shut down and not leave our house economy suffers. But what I'm seeing is Queenslanders travelling and enjoying our easing of restrictions. One selfish cunt can ruin all that by crossing the boarders.
I'm still cautious and wish those would stick to the 1.5m rule and cover their fucking mouth when they cough or sneeze.

We're on the sunshine coast right now, with everyone else who have had to cancel holidays elsewhere this year. It's ridiculously busy.

Businesses are struggling to follow social distancing regulations at counters with so many people around. As soon as everyone is inside an attraction there's no attempt from people to distance, so it's pointless. It'll only take one infected person could cause a second wave.

I'm in WA and feel bad for those in NSW and Victoria. Things are starting to relax a lot here, and it's nice. The suburb I'm in is very much back to normal really. We still have social distancing things in place, but I haven't experienced any negative effects from them. People are standing back a bit in line so I don't have to feel their breath on my neck. Instead of a tiny shop being filled with 8 people at a time, they only allow 2 in. People don't take the seat beside me on the train. And I don't have religious enthusiasts knocking on my door every other week. It's pretty great for me personally.
Then again, I can't speak for all of our state. And it's possible that our suburb is in a "bubble". Lots of people are back at work, and things feel more positive.
I've heard it's not the same in the suburbs north of the river (Joondalup, Butler, Scarborough, etc). But again, I can't comment for them.
