In the 1pm briefing today I heard Dr Bloomfield state as of tomorrow they will be publishing if any infected people are an essential workers and how many people were out in the community while infectious,
Be good to see this info.
Speaking of infectious in the community; I've seen a few comments slamming those classed as 'in the community while infectious' in Australia. Now I may be incorrect, but I haven't seen anything that states that 'in the community while infectious' necessarily means someone's been doing the wrong thing. If my understanding is correct, the current science seems to indicate that people are infectious up to ~2 days prior to any symptoms showing up (if any)? So, there is surely a possibility someone infectious could be out picking up groceries, etc, without yet realising they're infected. We also surely can't assume that those that are 'in the community while infectious' are part of a family/group who should be isolating, since Locations of Interest are still being added to the list daily and often not really in a timely fashion (for whatever reason). People don't know what they can't know. Just as long as when they're 'in the community while infectious', they're wearing a mask, sanitizing their hands, and scanning in!
Of course, there may also be those whom are out and about when they shouldn't be, as seen in previous lockdowns. I just don't think we should tar them all with the same brush, at least unless/until facts are known.
