Chris Eccles, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews’ top bureaucrat, resigns after hotel quarantine inquiry requests phone records

Comment by tonytran2015: The Premier of the State of Victoria in Australia now has many people working for him each pointing finger at another saying that the disastrous decision to employ private security guards at quarantine hotels was not his own. Why was also the offer of well trained Army soldiers refused? So WHO HAS DONE IT? This makes a mockery of transparency and accountabiliy.

  • Chris Eccles says his phone records show he called Mr Ashton for two minutes at 1:17pm on March 27
  • In September he told the hotel quarantine inquiry he could not remember calling Mr Ashton on this day
  • Mr Eccles says he is resigning as he does not want to distract from the Government’s COVID-19 response

WHO doctor says lockdowns should not be main coronavirus defence

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-10-12/world-health-organization-coronavirus-lockdown-advice/12753688

… “We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus.”

… Dr Nabarro made the statements in an interview with The Spectator.

“The only time we believe a lockdown in justified is to buy you time to reorganise, regroup, rebalance your resources; protect your health workers who are exhausted,” Dr Nabarro said…

“But by and large, we’d rather not do it.”

Lufthansa Cargo Boeing 777 Faces Altitude Reporting Issue

Comment by tonytran2015: Trusting only the (faulty ?) altimeter and GPS would have sent the plane 5800 ft (1900 m) under the ground.

… the crew communicated with ATC and asked what their altitude readings were. Subsequently, the corresponding controller said that the figure was 200 feet. Meanwhile, the crew members said that their standby altimeter was indicating 6,100 feet. Moreover, according to GPS, the plane was at 6,200 feet

Boarding areas in airports should have only passengers with manifests and negative on site Covid fast tests.

by tonytran2015

One disaster of Covid transmission due to plane traveling follows another. Sharing cabin air in a passenger plane for 90 minutes is now a Covid risk. It is high time to set up boarding ateas in airports with only passengers with manifests and acceptable on site Covid fast test.

Fast tests are readily available (https://time.com/5880255/covid-19-tests-types/ ) and results can be known in 5 minutes (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2020/03/28/coronavirus-fda-authorizes-abbott-labs-fast-portable-covid-test/2932766001/ ).

Otherwise, historic bunglings just keep repeating:

The pilot responded:

“Off the left side, maybe 300 yards or so, about our altitude.”
