Commenting on the story: SA to scrap close contact quarantine
At last, given the Omicron variants’ ability to rapidly infect, it is an absolute given that most of us will at some stage get COVID-19. That said, we must need to learn to live with it going forward.
Great to see the new Premier made good on his words as to a nationally consistent approach to this national problem. Congrats. – Gilbert Aitken

Quite amazing! Four thousand five hundred new cases yesterday (Thursday, April 21) and under current  expectations, this  means at least 450 South Australians will suffer the effects of long COVID for who knows how long? What is this financial cost to the state,? And remember, this was just one day’s worth.  It is also interesting to note that the heat maps for SA are not being updated to keep us informed quickly enough.

The change of government means that there is now no threat to politicians in the foreseeable future should they make decisions that ultimately hurt, or even kill fellow South Australians. What is so wrong with keeping a few restrictions – eg mask-wearing and commonsense close contact rules – until we have better vaccines that are apparently not too far away? Why do we have to copy other states?

Wouldn’t it be great if compassion and care of others around us came first before the slight inconvenience of having to wear a mask so that businesses can do better? They certainly didn’t do better over Christmas when we opened up. I expect we will be chasing our tails and reinstigating restrictions in the near future as it spirals out of control and our health system is threatened with being overwhelmed and people lock themselves away again. Will business do better then?
What a terrible time to be old, immuno-compromised or have health co-morbidities. Sadly  such people just don’t seem to matter anymore in the scheme of things. – Mike Williams
Appalling risk. – Adrienne Walker
Commenting on the story: Coopers taps into whisky under $50m plan

Let’s hope they can produce a good spirit at a reasonable price, unlike the other Australian distilleries. Way overpriced. – John Carter
