Ron Stinson, Brunswick Heads

Would it be okay if all anti-vaxxers, anti-maskers, etc signed advanced care directives that they will not take priority over ANYONE who needs a respirator or an ICU bed for any reason? Fair enough?

    • But why would you want treatments Rudra, against a virus that doesn’t exist? I find it so hard to keep up with what the current story is.

      • Right on Liz and Ron,
        I am happy take part in the following experiment. I am a healthy unvaccinated person of 80 years of age willing to spend 48 hours in isolation with an unvaccinated person who has been diagnosed with the so-called Delta Corona variant in full view of non-stop uncensored live sound and video internet streaming to prove your point.
        This a open challenge to you or anyone else, including governments and their health officials. The following conditions apply.
        1. The cost of my taking part this experiment, including travel costs will not be born by me.
        2. I will not be tested or receive any medical assistance before, during or after coming out of isolation during this period.
        3. I will not wear any mask from the time I leave my home till the time I return.
        4. I will bring all food and drink and my usual medications during this period of isolation.
        5. I must have access to a working refrigerator, a stove, electric kettle, a toaster and free access to the internet in this facility .
        6. The bathroom in the facility is off-limits for the cameras and microphones.
        7. The facility must have a veranda or a balconey where the sun shines on for no less than 4 hours from sunrise.
        8. I will not give or grant interviews before, during or after the experiment to any mainstream media outlet.
        9. I am willing to sign a statuary declaration absolving anyone for any responsibilty for arranging and paying for this experiment no matter what happens to me.
        The odds of anyone taking up this bet is close to zero. With a possible exception of Clive Palmer!

        • Would you allow access to your vaccination status prior. How would we know you hadn’t been secretly vaxxed?

          What sort of an experiment would it be if you wouldn’t allow any testing?

          How close to the positive case are you prepared to get?

          What would be the point of such a resource intensive and risky charade when one instance won’t establish anything?

          But I admire the strength of your convictions!

  1. Do you have worms or mites Rudra ? Trouble with malaria? Common thing none of these ailments are viral. You do know what a virus is? Sto listening to Those right wing conservative twats.
