Vaccination of EVERYONE (100% of the population, including children) is the way forward. IMHO it is not ethical to leave children unvaccinated in the face of a potentially fatal disease if the benefits of vaccination are greater than the risks. And the benefits greatly outweigh the risks based on all the evidence and its rational assumptions for the future both for Pfizer and AstraZenica. AstraZenica is safe by any reasonable standard. And it is legal to have a child vaccinated by your local doctor 'off label' if she believes that the the benefits outweigh the risks and documents the discussion and obtains a signed consent.
Australia needs to have isolated 60% of the daily new cases. Currently they have achieved about 11% (5 day average).
The graph below shows community cases - the opposite of isolated cases. The 'goal posts' of 57% for the maximum proportion of new daily cases that can be in the community and still end this epidemic wave is the goal post for today only. It will fall to about about 40% maximum allowable community cases as case numbers fall. The blue curve needs to be continually and convincingly under the red curve.
The effR for community to community spread (the effR that counts, since those in isolation are 'dead ends' for spread) is still high and not convincingly decreasing at 1.59
Cases continue to climb on a 5 day average.
