NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian says pubs, cafes and restaurants will be able to serve up to 50 people at a time from June 1, as NSW coronavirus cases continue to decline.

The Premier described expanding the social-distancing limits as a "big step" in the state's economic recovery from COVID-19.

Under the new measures, hospitality venues will be required to adhere to strict guidelines to operate:
  • Each patron must have at least four-square-metres of space
  • Bookings can be no larger than 10 people
  • No patrons will be allowed to stand, mingle or dance
  • Shared cutlery and buffets are also banned


Facing a tough election in October, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is coming under huge pressure to open the state's borders, so visitors in search of winter sun can start to get the tourist industry back on its feet.

She's in the sights not just of the Federal Government, with Mr Potatohead, Peter Dutton, ("a proud Queenslander") leading the charge, but of NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian as well.

The border issue sees a cross-party grouping. The Labor jurisdictions of Queensland, Western Australia and the Northern Territory, and the Liberal states of South Australia and Tasmania all have their borders closed.

NSW and Victoria have never gone down this path.

Cruise ships will be banned from entering Australian waters until at least September, after Australian Border Force announced the prohibition on ships over 100 would be extended by another three months.

That's bugger all really, I don't think civilisation has anything to worry about.
I bet more than 340,000 people die each day in the world.
If I was good at maths I reckon it would represent 0.00000000000001% of the population. But when I went to school there was no such number as 7 Billion...
The snowball effect of global panic caused by the media and the internet and the damage to our comfortable lives far outweighs anything the virus has inflicted.

You might well think that it is bugger all but it 340000 extra dead people and you might think a bit differently if it was your wife who died from Covid19.

340000 is just the number of deaths so far this is not over yet it might only have begun.

There might also be long term effects on the 5 million people who have had the disease we just don't know.

It has to be personal, death as a number has no relevance to anybody. It is only when you think of Covid19 killing someone you love that it makes any sense.

This is discussing it

l agree with wha you say totally OGF,
We are just suffering from a natural reaction to over population
that every species on this planet is subject to imo?
All the economic crap that is happening is due to the way we
eventually over reacted to what is after all a very small adjustment
to human numbers as you so rightly say!

Donkeyman! 👍👍
