Or imagine that, despite a world wide pandemic, we're blaming a small amount of people who don't get vaccinated over governments and their poor responses, combined with complete disregard for the real state of many health services. All of this, plus the vaccine has a relatively limited effect anyway. If it worked there would literally be no problem at all

It's not a small amount, it's about 10% of adults. Can't be bothered to look up exact figures, but I'd guess around 5 million.

The state of the health system is a different conversation - the vaccine is the way out of this but some people's actions (or lack of) mean we will remain in the state we are for longer than we need to.

The vaccine is effective, it reduces hospitalisation by 90% according to research. I've got mates who are front line NHS who are banging their heads against the wall because 90% of Covid patients are unvaccinated - how stupid have you got to be?

It's easy to blame governments with hindsight. I don't think many expected it to escalate as it did. Also, there's no point blaming governments now as it's in the past - we've got an opportunity to get out of it.

And just to raise a point about the vaccination and effectiveness and risk.
The vaccination was developed in approximately 10% of the time it usually takes drugs to get to market. Approximately 10 years is the timespan it takes from conception, through trials, some animal testing, then final human trials , before going to market.

Covid vaccines took about a year, and necessarily skipped a few hurdles. This is partially why its success isn't quite what we'd hoped.
There are other factors, such as Covid developing additional strains.
The upshot, (without blaming shambolic Governmental response), is that the way forward is for those offered vaccination, to take it.
It's a simple numbers game

Well, he's won his case and is now staying in Oz.

Djokovic’s lawyers argued the cancellation was unreasonable - the government conceded this, and judge Anthony Kelly also agreed
The judge ordered the immediate release of the Serbian tennis player and for the government to pay all costs" (BBC website)

If he's tested negative the whole episode is a complete waste of time. An unnecessary distraction that now makes his participation in the open somewhat controversial.

Several tennis players have skipped the Aussie open because they are not vaccinated and were told they could not come. At least one has been double vaccinated with the Sputnik vaccine which the Aussies don't recognise.

Not having a go at Novak but the Aussie Tennis Authorities and immigration have mucked this up. There will be absent players now saying well I could have come after all.

On a general point I don't agree with athletes getting preferential treatment over the public one rule for all...

 


One more point

From BBC article:

He told the interviewer that he tested positive for Covid twice - in June 2020 and on 16 December 2021. Copies of his positive PCR tests were provided to the interviewer - one was issued on the 16 December 2021, a day before Djokovic appeared at public events without a mask.

Being reported, admittedly by ITV, that he's been re-arrested.

It's all getting very messy.

This unfortunate saga isn't doing the game of tennis any favours.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

Cant be easy (denied entry to a country) for an event where he was expected to be one of the big name participants, possibly even favourite to win it, then subsequently gained the right to enter by contesting the refusal decision, must leave a sour taste in you mouth, I wonder how many of us would be of a mind to say, stuff your tournament & leave.

He shouldn’t even be there. He hasn’t got a valid Visa.

He was trying to circumvent the system and expecting preferential treatment and it has backfired massively.

As for his appearance in public one day after testing positive for COVID…Tw@t.

Great to see the Australian Government making a stand on this. Get him deported.

Whatever happens here the whole situation is now a farce.
Tennis Australia cocked up because they didn't know the facts.
The powers that be are being political in Election year.
The Border Force officials couldn't wait to be too officious.
However - the biggest and most arrogant arse of the lot is Djokovic.
He is not vaccinated - now properly reported. He has had a positive covid test twice and the last of those was on December 16th 2021 when the day after he went unmasked to a photo event with a lot of people and the following day did another appointment with L'Equipe I believe when all the time he should have been isolating.
He has broken all of the rules regarding isolation and expects to swan in to a country with seriously strict covid border rules.
My mates over there are spitting feathers about this and reckon he will be less welcome than smallpox when and if he goes on court.
Whatever respect I had for him as a tennis player I now have none for him as a person - none at all.
