This just goes to prove that you cannot let your guard down, not for a moment where this pandemic is concerned.
10 months clear of any locally acquired Covid-19 and just one individual can undo all the good work done by the many. Clearly there was a lapse of attention or judgement and that is all it takes.
It seems that a security guard working in a hotel, has been tested positive for Covid-19, possibly with the UK variant.
One should also keep in mind, Australia has not yet started to roll out the vaccine. March appears to be the soonest estimate for vaccinations to start.
Supplies of the vaccines also look to be in jeopardy, as the EU plans to impose restrictions on exports. Restrictions, on vaccine exports, are being put in place to cover shortfalls brought about by the EUs own bureaucracy and ineptitude.
This is potentially a double whammy for WA residents.
