Victoria: 70% vaccinated. Outdoor Social Interaction

Dan has just announced another reason to leave home as part of the New Freedoms for reaching 70% first vaccine.

Outdoor Social Interaction
This means one person may meet another person not from their household for a picnic, a walk, or another outdoor activity.
So, can I meet with my instructor for an hour in the sky??
Asking for a friend.

Good luck getting instruction in a 150 that you can maintain 1.5 m from each other.

The purpose of the vaccine is purely to help keep pressure off the hospitals (and to stop people getting gravely ill).

Itís just a numbers game.

If 1,700 people per million catch it per day and 1.5% go to hospital with it, then they just need to ensure that the numbers of beds exist, by roping in private hospitals etc, or perhaps the new Victorian centre for national resilience.

If only 70% are vaccinated, that means of the 30% remaining as unvaccinated, that up to 2-3% will die (tying up hospital beds) and perhaps up to 8% will need a hospital bed, so that wonít be acceptable to the state government.

The more beds ready and the higher the vaccination rate, the sooner the doors fly open and the free-for-all starts!

Insert your own numbers above, they didnít come from Sunfishís friends at the Doherty institute.
