What ever happened to the policy that if corona cases were more than 10 per day (it's now 450) that the "Sandbox Scheme" would be cancelled?!?

Kamala Pete | 10 January 2022 - 14:27:10

So we've had nearly 1,600 tourists arriving with Sandbox and Test & Go scrutiny actually being infected. We may as well just open the floodgates and take their money.

When will you learn. Everything anybody says is meaningless and a joke!

CaptainJack69 | 10 January 2022 - 11:39:47

Right. So 513 new cases resulting in 610 more people under medical supervision. Are they hospitalizing people who haven't even tested positive? What on earth is going on? These numbers are meaningless.
