Coronavirus is 'uniquely adapted to infect humans': Top vaccine scientist says it could only have come from an animal through a 'freak of nature' - and the possibility it leaked from Wuhan lab MUST be investigated 

 

Scientists have produced evidence that the pandemic virus is 'uniquely adapted to infect humans', raising fresh questions over whether its origins were natural or could have occurred in a laboratory.

Interesting to reveal the root cause of the virus. Video is 14 mins and worth it.

Been listening to another about this virus and a lot more facts. Still standing by more to be revealed around Xmas.

To all who are reading this - this could happen here. Here's a heads up of what is in the future. UK will in some areas run out of food. Farmers are being told to plow under their crops or face action. The control is coming - food to be dished out to those who are the rich, well off and notable, the commoners will be left without. So in preparation, stock up, not panic buy, just a little extra every time you shop. Buy only those things that have long use by dates and I don't mean toilet paper either, can't eat that!

If your child or grandchild is so ill and at deaths door, take note of what will happen and where you lose all control of YOUR child. Order the coffin now for the youngster.

The Australian Capital Territory has just officially passed the 80 per cent COVID-19 vaccination milestone.The territory has reached the hurdle after it has had more than 98 per cent of its eligible population aged over 12 single dosed for some time

Had my second Pfizer yesterday just 24 hours from now, so far the only issue is a sore arm.  Feel a bit tired but getting home on the way I did the grocery shopping and went to the chemist.  Came home [ with some Miss Mauds goodies] cooked a hot meal and then rested for an hour.  Then went and used the watering can to put some liquid fertilizer over the front and back garden beds.

This morning the same still have a sore arm and have taken Panadol.

Glad you've finally had your second dose Celia.

Must say RnR for a time there I was beginning  to feel I would never have it.

I had been warned by many I would have flu symptoms, but not so far touch wood. But I guess some people that have a cold think they have the flu!    Had the flu myself about the age of 33 and was six for weeks.

200 Queenslanders may die of COVID-19 when borders reopen, modelling predicts

Under Queensland the phased reopening plan, double-vaccinated domestic travellers from COVID-19 hotspots will be allowed into the state once 70 per cent of eligible Queenslanders are fully vaccinated, which is expected to happen on November 19. Those travellers can only arrive by air, must test negative to COVID-19 in the previous 72 hours and must complete 14 days of home quarantine.

Travel restrictions will ease further from December 17, when fully vaccinated interstate travellers will no longer need to quarantine, regardless of whether Queensland has hit the 80 per cent vaccination target.

WA will not ease COVID-19 hard border with NSW and Victoria prior to Christmas

WA Premier Mark McGowan says the plan remained for WA to reopen to Victoria and New South Wales sometime next year, when between 80 and 90 per cent of West Australians aged 12 and over were fully vaccinated. Mr McGowan said the state would reopen its borders next year, with high levels of vaccination, to manage a "soft landing" out of COVID-19.

"I don't want us to fall at the last hurdle," he said.

Premier urges WA residents to get vaccinated while borders are shut and there are no community cases.

SCARE TACTICS to get people vaccinbated ??

I hope our Premier does open up the state for New Year!

I think by then it has given people plenty of time to have the Jab, I had to wait for months before I had mine, husband had his two months ago.

I would love to have my son fly over from Sydney it has to be nearly 3 years since we were over there visiting him.

I guess they will start the Booster Jabs soon when those that want them have got to 80% here in WA.

I feel the longer time we had here in WA was due to the later delivery WA had to wait for the vaccines to get here unlike other states.

At Tweed Heads area today and tomorrow, all First Nation children of 12 years and above will be forcefully jabbed without parental presence or consent.

This is the Gestapo in full flight. You may not believe me, but if you know of friends, or friends of friends, check it out. But then, because its only our First Nations children they are disposable/expendable, like the murdered unborn they now call waste. If we do not wake up to the tricks of the Government, you will regret it.

I am not against any vaccination that is for a disease of any type. But untested ones I am. Even the TGA has said openly this is a trial vaccine? Being forced into jabs, forcefully removing people from homes, jabbing children without parental presence or consent, isolation and quarantine,  blackmail to force you to get the jab, is NOT ON! One woman has been refused leukemia treatment if she does not have the jab. When did we make our Doctors, Gods.

I have yet to see HIV, Flu, Hepatitis, and other viral types, being forcefully held to isolate, quarantine, or to be jabbed.

But its coming - forget the Chinese war as this one will be in Australia similar to the Civil war of the USA with the North and South. Only then when the children of the jabbed start having bad symptoms or die, will the jabbed join the unjabbed to fight the Government. They will run for the hills when the whole nation fights for the loss of family members and friends.

Why can't people wake up? Australia is apathetic with an attitude of "she'll be right mate", but this time its affecting all of us and we need to stand up for our freedom that our Diggers fought for.  A Vaccination is supposedly to keep a bug etc from proliferating and yet this one does not - a jabbed person can pass on the bug to another jabbed person. Think its wrong? Why then do jabbed people die? Its because the one with a specific strain passed on a more virulent strain to another who has been jabbed. There is no protection for them with the newer strain. So it boils down to why get it at all? Let it run its course, whosoever gets it and survives, well and good, those who do not, then send them on their way with love and prayers.

 

As kids we had the treatment for Polio at school.

Nobody asked  our parents if they gave permission, we just took it and went on with our lives as Polio was so terrible. Today it is taken for granted.

We were so lucky to be able to have it, seeing other children with Polio and adults was frightening.

I think today people take for granted what science has done for the world.

This photo was for the lucky ones that contracted the illness the others had to live in an iron lung.

Really??

You seem to be the only person on the internet with this information ... have searched and searched ... no other references found. Perhaps you could provide your source.

Bee Mee that is utter nonsense!

You should be ashamed of yourself writing that you do not know anything.

Your ignorance astounds me.

Everyone in our family has had the Jab, I was the last I had it on Monday and I only had a sore arm for 24 hours.

I am sick and tired of people with their ignorance frightening others.

"As my husband said you are one of those people that sucks up misinformation and then refines it and put its back on the web"

 

BeeMee, yes they are out to get you but Gestapo, really? Where is your evidence?

FYI, our family was deployed overseas when I was a kid and I can assure you we had no choice about weekly chloroquine tablets, six monthly cholera jabs, annual typhoid and tetanus jabs, mandatory course of rabies jabs if you got a scratch while hiking, hep jab if you hadn't had one, some fever thing and so on. I suspect you know diddly squat about what Diggers went through and why.

How about you start with a backbone and check for yourselves. Sick of giving info that is credible only to have the uninformed and misinformed question it.

Forget reading TV channel BS, Don't listen to Government idiots, or even the TGA who can't lie straight in bed. They tell you the vaccine works but then do a turn around and state its a trial. Welcome to the world of guinea pigs.

As for confirmation on this Tweed Heads vax, how about a good friend I have known for years, has had her daughter carted off and jabbed without her consent. Elaine does not belong here or she would truly open your eyes to what is really happening with the first nations people. They have an entirely different system than ours and are suffering extreme reactions. What do the authorities say - OH its Covid! Never would say its the vaccine.

As for you Farside I know a lot more than you do in regards to Diggers - my Uncle was in WW2, My great Uncle was a hero in WW1 and signed up again for WW2. Under enemy fire he kept the telephone lines mended and open. No I know nothing, do I?

Cousin Ken - Vietnam. Came home and shared what he saw. If I told you, you would be in tears and throwing up. I can understand why many are suffering PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) written for those too lazy to look for themselves.

So no I know nothing after all.

I am fed up to the back teeth with silly people who are too lazy to move away from mainstream BS and research facts for themselves.

Apologies to those I said I would share more by December. I will not be around and waste my time with narrow minded people. There are better topics to read and comment on.

Covid vaccinations compulsory for three-quarters of workforce by end of 2021WA premier said step necessary to prepare state for community transmission  Workers include port, transport and freight, aged care workers and teachers Supermarkets, groceries, restaurants also covered along with MPs and gov staff

PUBLISHED: 16:17 AEDT, 20 October 2021 | UPDATED: 16:17 AEDT, 20 October 2021

Employers who are caught using workers who have not been vaccinated will be fined $100,000, and employees risk $20,000 fines for flouting the order.

Covid-19 vaccinations will be compulsory for three-quarters of the West Australian workforce by the end of the year, Premier Mark McGowan has announced. Pictured are construction site workers in Perth

'It is proportionate and reasonable, and is aimed at preparing Western Australia safely for the inevitable community transmission,' Mr McGowan said on Wednesday.

The first group includes port, transport, and freight workers, health and aged care staff, police and FIFO mining workers.

Community workers, fire and emergency services employees, abattoir and meat processing workers, and prison staff are also on the list.

They must receive their first dose by December 1 and be fully vaccinated by December 31.

The second group includes staff at supermarkets, groceries, restaurants, pubs and cafes, as well as childcare, public transport and construction workers. 

They must get their first dose by year's end and second by January 31.

All teachers and school staff must be fully vaccinated by the start of term one.

 First dose by December 1, second dose by December 31:

Remaining public and private hospitals and public healthcare facilities  Primary and community health

 The full list of occupations is on the Western Australian government website

The government also outlined a third group of workers who must be fully vaccinated to got to work in the event of a lockdown. 

They include government employees, members of parliament, and other retail workers.

Industry roundtables will be held ahead of the policy being implemented to ensure businesses and workers are prepared.

WA is on track to have more than 60 per cent of people aged 12 and over fully vaccinated in coming days, but still trails other states and territories.

Mr McGowan said the rate continued to climb but warned 'people should not wait until the eleventh hour'.

'The time is now,' he said.

'I want to make it abundantly clear that everyone who is eligible should get the Covid-19 vaccine now as we all need to be prepared for the event of community transmission or a lockdown.

'Don't wait for the deadly Delta variant to enter before you consider getting the vaccine. Get the Covid-19 vaccine now.'

The premier also dashed any hopes WA would reopen for Christmas, saying he didn't want to impose restrictions such as mask-wearing during the festive season.

Queensland outlined plans to scrap quarantine for fully vaccinated domestic travellers by December 17.

Mr McGowan refused to follow suit, saying WA was on track to reach 80 per cent vaccination in December at which point further certainty would be provided.

He has previously indicated there would be at least a two-month lag between WA hitting an undefined mark between 80 and 90 per cent vaccinated, and the border actually opening.

It means WA's border will almost certainly remain shut to NSW, Victoria and the ACT for the rest of the year.

 

[We are so glad this has been put in place, it would not have been needed if people were acting responsibly for the whole state in the first place]
