36ers Dec 28 and Jan 2 games postponed

Information has been released by the 36ers advising a player has been identified as a positive Covid case and the game tonight and this coming Sunday are currently postponed

The Adelaide 36ers have been forced to postpone tonight's game against the Perth Wildcats as a precautionary measure due to COVID-19 protocols and close contact requirements in South Australia.

The decision comes after a team member tested positive to Covid, resulting in all game-day players and staff being deemed close contacts.

Due to current South Australian State Government Covid Directions, the subsequent Adelaide 36ers home game on 2nd January against South-East Melbourne Phoenix will also be postponed.

This needs to change

Rapid antigen tests. Test negative and play?

What did they do with test cricket? Quick turnaround pcr?

There are places that can do it quickly. RCH in Melb standard turnaround now for pcr is 6-7 hrs- we've had 3 done in past 2 weeks

"I thought they were all double jabbed"

Double vaccination doesn't offer complete protection against contracting COVID. In today's (28/12) SA numbers, ~80% of positive cases were vaccinated (https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-12-28/south-australia-records-995-new-covid-cases/100728192). That compares with ~91% of the 12+ population having had at least one shot of vaccine (https://covidlive.com.au/sa).

So chance of contracting COVID if you're vaccinated would be about half that for unvaccinated folks, based on those numbers.

This is my back of the envelope analysis of the published numbers, not a controlled observational study. e.g., there are probably different age profiles for vaccinated and unvaccinated folks, lower likelihood of a vaccinated person with COVID being detected because the symptoms are usually lesser for them than unvaccinated folks (leading to less likelihood of being tested), etc.

These experts said you wouldn't catch covid if you got jabbed. I guess they lied.

"So chance of contracting COVID if you're vaccinated would be about half that for unvaccinated folks, based on those numbers". Don't think so.
Transmission is the same for vaxxed and unvaxxed as the experts also stated in the above video link. And these are the highest experts you can get.

I never heard anyone qualified who claimed that. Would like you to back up that bullshit statement with even one credible source who claims that.

" Would like you to back up that bullshit statement"

The funny part is the raft of restrictions like wearing masks, social distancing applying just about universally - vaccinated and unvaccinated, statistical breakdowns of vaccinated infections/hospitalisations vs unvaccinated - all aspects repeated daily but somehow went over anons head in favour of whatever flimsy nonsense they heard through the vine!

If vaccinated couldn't catch covid, none of those measures would apply to vaccinated and most of Australia would be open and not giving a shit about the unvaccinated minority!

Not only have they never said that, omicron came along with more vaccine resistance and we're basically back to square one. Beggars belief that WA is going to open up. Would've been no different opening up a year ago.

Omicron is much more mild though KR, so the stats look daunting, but the severity is not as bad.

The jury is still out on that, and even if it's less severe it could still kill more people if it's that much easier to transmit. And people here in WA have no concept of COVID at all. Nobody scans in, nobody distances, and some have even wondered why anyone still cares about COVID at all. It's going to hit, and it's going to hit in a way that makes the Eastern states look tame. Completely insane that we didn't shift from requiring 90% double vax to requiring 90% triple vax once omicron showed up.

WA have had their chance to see from the outside. Their lack of education on how to manage with a virus is on them, and their problem. The jury's isn’t out, it’s milder, it’s not ideal, but it’s no delta. We’re all going to get it, but it’s not going to cause the same level of issues as delta would’ve.

To many punters on here that no more than the experts, I for am hoping I never get it. The country has been leaderless at a federal level since this started and it's a total shit fight when we could have, should have been all triple vaccinated and out of the woods by now.

kr: vaccines don't do anything against omicron
also kr: because of omicron WA should insist on triple vax before letting people in
hard to argue with logic like that!

Being double vaxxed gives very little protection against omicron, being triple vaxxed gets you in the same ballpark as double vax vs delta.

So now two jabs gives no protection agains Omicron but a third jab will. But the third jab is the same as the previous jab.

Yes? A low brick wall won't stop people stepping/jumping over it, a high brick wall will. Same bricks, just more of them.

This isn't rocket science.

Sotto will sign an NBA contract, linked to undertaking an MBA.

Don't you guys know he scored a triple double on the WAIS, as well as genius range at 158 from the 3 point line.

Another way is to think of it like practising foul shooting. Practising twice a week instead of once won't guarantee you never miss a foul shot in a game, but it's less likely you'll miss.

Nick Marvin hasn't advised the club very well at all.
