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.

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”?

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

It’s the disjunct btwn him complaining Re the border decision just days ago (which would stop a small & expanding outbreak from becoming a mass seeding 5/2->) & now saying not enough is being done. S’pose I’m tired of all the criticism vs support of late

Ok if we’re going to do this
Replying to @amapresident
Omicron has already arrived in WA and will continue to do so. Limited community spread already happening. Let’s not make the same mistakes as @Dom_Perrottet and put all eggs in vaccine basket.

Timing of the opening is really important so the health system can be adequately prepared for the anticipated surge in demand. So @amapresident is correct in both statements
