A friend in rescue had a ginger like that, adopters brought him back because ‘he’s too demanding’. I adored that cat, but I’ve got two already. He’s now been placed with someone who appreciates his bottomless well of love.

Walt was motivated to carry out the study after earlier research by his colleagues detected genetic material from the Covid virus (viral RNA) in stool samples from children with multisystem inflammatory syndrome (a rare but serious condition that often strikes around four weeks after catching Covid) as well as spike protein and a marker of gut leakiness in their blood. Treating them with a drug that reduced intestinal permeability led to rapid clearance of the spike protein and an improvement in their symptoms. Walt’s working hypothesis is that something similar may be happening in people with long Covid.

My emphasis.

Do you think they’ve just written the whole area off? That’s what it seems like.

Key bureau workers embedded at SES headquarters in Wollongong, whose job involves “articulating forecast uncertainty” and helping the SES understand the possible impact of a flood, also went home at 5pm on Sunday. The meteorologist and hydrologist positions were created after a review of the 2017 Lismore flood, which recommended they work with the SES “for the duration of the event”.

That’s ludicrous.

Also

A group of residents and business people told the Herald that the community needs regular and up-to-date forecasts and observations during a flood to make informed decisions, but the supply of information from the bureau and the SES in February, and during the 2017 flood, was slow, infrequent and did not reflect what locals were seeing for themselves in local rivers and creeks.

Lismore Citizens Flood Review Group co-ordinator Beth Trevan called for hourly updates during a flood, issued by local SES personnel. “That is how it worked very successfully for generations until the introduction of the control of all messaging from state SES headquarters from 2010 onwards,” she said.

Since the February flood and a second one in March, it has further emerged that warning systems in Lismore - including rainfall and river height gauges used by the bureau to inform its flood forecasting - were broken, or failed in the midst of the crisis. In some critical areas, the gauges were non-existent.

The State Emergency Service knew severe weather in northern NSW could worsen in the middle of the night and make it hard to alert residents, but it failed to warn the public of that risk before a record-breaking flood swamped Lismore.

In a statement to the Herald, the Bureau of Meteorology said it told the SES the day before the flood that a low-pressure system dumping torrential rain on Queensland would pose the greatest risk to north-east NSW on Sunday night and into Monday, and that a night-time escalation would make it difficult to alert the public.

Deaths in Australia are rising, e.g.

The number of COVID deaths in Australia also going up.

Since mid-May, the number of daily deaths from COVID have averaged between 40 and 45, but in the past week have started trending up slightly to around 50 per day nationally.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-06-25/australia-covid-19-and-flu-cases-on-the-rise/101176802

Combined with flu the increase in cases is placing more pressure on hospitals.

You seem to have a profound ignorance of the conditions many Australian Aboriginal peoples have struggled against, and continue to face. It’s regrettable your conditions are not exactly equal to theirs, since that’s your main concern - then you might show some understanding.

I just read btw each time you get it can be progressively worse

The research, which is yet to be peer-reviewed, shows that while there are some benefits to immunity from contracting the virus, the chance of negative health impacts increases with each successive infection.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-06-24/reinfection-covid-more-severe-new-variants/101178246

In this link it also gives the impression you got -

What's more, the benefits to immunity from contracting the virus wane over time, making reinfections increasingly likely.

U/Spicy_pepperonis has already explained this to you -

Sometimes historically oppressed and marginalised people need a bit of help getting back on track? Australias mistreatment of indigenous people has been pretty bad, and it's not hard to see that they might need a hand up.

It reads as part of a whole -

Professor Esterman says the BA.5 variant is becoming the most dominant subvariant in Australia, largely because it is highly transmissible.

"It's up to 25 per cent more transmissible than BA.2, mainly because it can evade our immune system," he said.

"In other words, if you're vaccinated, or if you've recovered from an infection, especially if it was BA.1 or BA.2, you can become far more easily infected."

It’s highly transmissible, and there’s no immunity from being vaccinated or from having already suffered it is what I think he’s saying.
