It will be alleged the three young men made the journey despite being notified they had tested positive for the virus.

7news Spotlight: Delta Crisis ExposeSunday 18th July at 8:30 pm (40 minutes)7NEWS brings you the latest details on the Delta strand hitting us and how it entered Australia.

 

5 dead in NSW now. The latest, only in her 50's died at home. I wonder why she wasn't in hospital?

An infected Sydney resident visited Coffs Harbour and went to supermarkets and the pub. Grrrr...

 

Most people who get sick (80%) have a mild illness which rarely involves needing to go to hospital. They recover after about two weeks.
Covid-19 has similar symptoms to pneumonia, in testing it is difficult to ascertain whether or not it shows a common cold, the onset of the flu or other similar respiratory viruses and to be safe a person with a common cold will be told to isolate for 14 days.
News reports always state XYZ so many people tested positive, for what, if 80% have a common cold it is not surprising that the Covid scare-mongering has completely stuffed-up everyone's lives.
According to UK medical relatives, something suspicious has been discovered relating to the Covid scare tactics.

I feel SO ANGRY with the NSW government for delaying lockdown in the very beginning. Gladys Berejiklian is now saying every day "delta is different". Where the hell was her head when India was being hit by the delta strain??? The truth is she ran with ego...."we in nsw have the gold standard....we in nsw don't do lockdowns....etc etc etc, ya ya ya....STUPID WOMAN!!!! Morrison her LNP lap dog!!! Or is Gladys the lap dog of Morrison? Daniel Andrew's has shown real guts, truly putting the people first and his way of locking down hard and fast is so obviously the wise way to go. 
NOT HAPPY GLADYS!!!
