So @MarkMcGowanMP, now that Omicron is clearly spreading in WA, don’t you think it’s time to act? We are on track to follow NSW and Vic unless action is taken now to slow the spread. Our bubble has burst and NSW shows that if you let it rip the consequences will be dire.

Unfortunately that means sensible limits on venue capacity, high risk activities etc, and these decisions must be made NOW to be effective. Must flatten the curve as our hospitals and vulnerable need protecting. Masks are a start but not enough to slow the spread.

Slower spread —> less illness and death, more chance of a hospital bed if you need one and better economic outcomes. Most of us have little to worry about but Omicron is still a serious illness for some.

For the rest of us: get vaccinated and boosted. Get tested if any symptoms at all and get ready to manage COVID at home. Stay away from crowds esp indoors as anyone you talk to could have Omicron. Hospitals will care for you if u’r sick… but most won’t get very sick at all!

After your negative comments “gutted. Etc..” nonsense & reading your tweets you have failed to acknowledge 2 things eg .. masks that #LetItRipDom threw out & vaccination..time to get kids jabs & adults boosted. Why the negativity.. looking for a career in politics? #auspol

Yes very strange isn't it? I'm living in Perth - I see no evidence yet that Omicron is 'everywhere' and if it is spreading I am confident McGowan will take the necessary action. This guy clearly has an agenda.

Tbf I feel like this was his position though, have covid in the community but also rules in place to slow it down

Agree that health controls are required urgently to stop the spread. However the ideologues are white washing the health risk

Hang on Dr, you sharply criticised Mr McGowan for delaying the border opening, and now you’re telling him to act fast on Omicron? Do you want a horse in both races so you can say “see, I told you so”?
