I have four planes on the ground, two in Townsville and two in Brisbane that we can use to go and get anyone who’s a confirmed case and move them to Rockhampton or Brisbane.”

– CHO Jeannette Young doesn’t own any planes. Nor does she have the power to “go and get” people.

 
The sad death on Tuesday of 30 year-old Blackwater man Nathan Turner was more or less seized on yesterday by Annastacia Palaszczuk, Chief Health Officer Young and various other politicians as some kind of proof that coronavirus is a clear and present existential danger to all Queenslanders. In fact, Mr Turner was a very ill man with a “complicated” medical history and several ongoing conditions. He was nevertheless touted by Dr Young as the “youngest” victim in Australia. “You then get into semantics about what was the trigger and what was the cause,” she added, coldly. “Any person who dies, who is infected with COVID-19, we declare it as a COVID-19 related-death.” Of course you do. “It’s a timely reminder too for all Queenslanders that this COVID is real,” the Premier added, idiotically – hard-pressed as she is to justify her election-driven lockdown timetable in the face of so underwhelming an emergency.

  1. I’m certain that if someone had covid symptoms and went over cliff in a car, that would be listed as another covid death.

  2. Another Ian

    Taking the lead from this?

    “in Detroit last week, 5 listed Covid-19 deaths were people that died of gunshot wounds but tested positive for the virus. That 100,000 plus, listed US deaths from Covid-19 might be a bit high. Maybe even a great deal high given the incentives to pad the figures to generate greater medical incomes.”

    Soon Qld will be exhuming bodies to re-evaluate the cause of death. Anything to boost the stats of this non-event in Qld. 264 people died FROM the ‘flu last year in Qld. Where was the shutdown or did I miss it. Why aren’t these people being asked these sorts of questions? They need to be put on the spot. It not as if they are clever.

  4. Infidel Tiger King

    They didn’t even know he had the virus until the autopsy.

    Sounds like he was severely ill already from lifestyle issues.

  5. Struth

    in Detroit last week, 5 listed Covid-19 deaths were people that died of gunshot wounds but tested positive for the virus.

    I used to joke here about being recorded in Italy as a covid 19(84) with a bullet wound to the head.

    Sadly, when you think it was exaggeration………………….the left are doing it.

    When you are dying of other things, such as the young bloke in QLD, these morally bankrupt Karens are telling you straight to your face, they are making up the figures.
    If you die of a bullet wound to the head, while you have the sniffles, we will call the CoD, the sniffles.
    They admit it above.
    Now no one is that stupid unless they have reason to be.
    Palaschook makes those statements to nullify questioning the stats, calling out it’s dishonesty and knowing we have no way of holding her to account, and that little technocality will be hardly mentioned by the MSM.
    Admitting it defuses it, and she knows she has the thugs with guns.

    They’re working on that, you can be sure of it.

  7. Struth

    The MSM are part of this major, major, global hoax enacted by the global left and organised via the UN and the WHO, and down to it’s messaging and propaganda practiced and confirmed actions at event 201.
    That’s why every country has exactly the same slogans.
    This is the largest assault on the western world ever.
    And so far it’s working a treat.
    None of us are free and Australia’s flu season is now starting.

  8. HT

    His death was the headline on news.com.au. The naughty nurse was that supposedly traveled through Blackwater was the second story on the same site. The third story was the 4yo and the two teenagers locked in a room and starving etc, was relegated to third place this morning, the very day that that news is breaking.

    Our country has lost both reason and sense of values.

    True. Just wish we didn’t have the misfortune of having to tolerate these infuriating idiots existing on this planet.

    One of the most obvious features of this destructive mass hysteria is that a whole bunch of petty hitlerist tosspot karens seem to have escaped from some bizarre parallel universe into ours – and equally preposterous imbeciles such as Lardarse Pluckachook and Beryl Gladyschlocklian are in their thrall.

    This fascist idiocy needs to be brought to a long overdue end. If I ever hear the imbecilic pronouncements of some spectacularly drab, unelected, unaccountable braindead Mr Mackeyesque “public health” bureaucrat again in my life, it will be too f*cking soon.

    They should all be fired. Out of a cannon off a very high cliff.

    But thirty thousand Queenslanders could’ve died!
    Now thrive the armourers Karens.

  11. The MSM are part of this major, major, global hoax enacted by the global left and organised via the UN and the WHO, and down to it’s messaging and propaganda practiced and confirmed actions at event 201.

    Just a reminder that the IPCC was established jointly by the UN World Meteorological Organization WMO and the UN Environment Program UNEP.
    During the 1990’s, Chinese scientists working in fields related to climate (geology, atmospheric physics etc) were sceptical of the AGW hypotheses and published sceptical papers. Later in the 2000’s they all went silent and China went all in on the AGW scam. The CCP obviously realised that AGW was a terrific way to weaken the West economically.

    Now we have this Wuhan Flu unleashed by the Chinese and fully supported by the UN WHO, doing great economic damage in a hurry.
    Conspiracy theories my arse. This was all planned and happily supported by wannabe New World Order adherents.

    Don’t know about the country, but the media certainly has.

    It’s called giving them the vote.

    The insanity of emasculation.

    There is more to this story. Quite how an autopsy was conducted in a small town and the deceased was tested and immediately confirmed to have COVID 19 is bizarre as the test kits were probably not available there, the results take up to 2 days to come through and given the man had major medical issues already known why test for the virus at all?
    The Rockhampton nurse who admitted driving to and from Blackwater (400 kms) well before this latest death and said she did so to look at the sunset and did not leave her car!
    The speed with which the Qld CMO ramped up the hysteria by getting straight onto the tv news with her ‘planes at the ready’ nonsense backed up by the Premier using this to justify her lockdown and border prison policy was cartoonish.
    Clearly a full on beat up to keep the political pressure on is unfolding. Lets hope it gets called out very soon.

  17. duncanm

    The real story, despite poor Mr Turner, is of course how he got infected. Sounds like his partner is also infected (but no surprises there).

    As for the nurse – 200 km to ‘watch a sunset’ alone in a non-descript mining town. Bullshit.

    Where’s the boyfriend lurking ?

    Nathan Turner, ‘the life of the party’, is now nation’s youngest coronavirus death

    MICHAEL MCKENNA
    SENIOR REPORTER

    Hundreds of people in the central Queensland mining town of Blackwater will be tested for COVID-19 on Thursday following the death of 30-year-old Nathan Turner, Australia’s youngest victim­ of the coronavirus.

    The coalminer, who had been suffering seizures and was on worker’s compensation since Novembe­r, was found unconscious on Tuesday and tests conducted­ after his death found he was carrying the virus.

    Mr Turner had been showing symptoms of the virus for three weeks prior to his death, but was not tested. His fiancee, who works in the local bakery and is now sick, has tested negative.

    It emerged on Wednesday night that there is some uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 tests on Mr Turner. A test conducted about 9pm on Tuesday — several hours after his death — produced a positive reading for the virus, but a test three hours later came back negative.

    “The first test was conducted closer to his death and is more reliable and while the second test was negative, it was contaminated with blood and is treated as being technically invalid,’’ a government source told The Australian. “We do not know if he died because of the virus but Queensland Health believes he died with the virus.’’

    Queensland Health is investig­ating how Mr Turner was infected­, with no prior cases of COVID-19 in the Blackwater region­, where he had been since February.

    On Wednesday, authorities re-interviewed­ a nurse — who contracted COVID-19 earlier this month and continued working at a Rockhampton aged-care facility while feeling unwell — as a possible source of the infection.

    The nurse, who has not been identified, travelled the 167km from Rockhampton to Blackwater on May 10, four days before she was diagnosed with the virus.

    After her initial diagnosis, she told authorities of her visit to the mining town, with the revelation on Wednesday prompting community and state opposition questions as to why residents weren’t told and mass testing conducted.

    Sources told The Australian that the nurse, who had shown symptoms from May 5, had said in an interview with Queensland Health workers that she had had no contact with anyone in the community while in Blackwater.

    “She said she had driven to Blackwater to watch the sunrise and hadn’t gotten out of her car or had any contact with anyone,” a source said. “It’s a strange place to go to watch the sunrise.’’

    In a statement, Queensland Health defended its actions and said it now appeared Mr Turner had shown COVID-19 symptoms before the nurse visited the town. “Contact-tracing information provided to Queensland Health for the central Queensland case identified on May 14 was that the individual travelled to Blackwater in the second week of May but did not interact with other individuals there,’’ the statement said.

    “Information provided to Queensland Health about the case identified today indicated the man had respiratory symptoms since the first week of May.

    “At this time, no evidence has been provided to Queensland Health that links the two cases. But we will continue to assess all information relevant to any case.’’

    Friends of Mr Turner paid tribute to the coalminer on Wednesday night. “He was a larrikin and always the life of the party,” a friend told The Australian.

    “He was a funny, kind person who always had time for his mates.”

    Others posted messages on Mr Turner’s Facebook page after news of his death spread.

    “RIP mate, I am so shocked right now,” one friend said.

    “You were a top bloke and always knew how to make your friends smile. Fly high buddy and thoughts to your loved ones.”

    Mr Turner had been off work from the Jellinbah mine since November­ with a “complicated” medical condition, understood to relate to seizures and a separate respiratory condition.

    Queensland Health said his fiancee was in isolation but had not been admitted to hospital. She found him “unresponsive’’ in their home at 4.30pm on Tuesday after returning from work, and he could not be revived. The police and ambulance officers who attended the scene are also now in quarantine.

    A team of public health experts and additional contact-tracing resources have been deployed from Brisbane to Blackwater to track the possible source of the virus, with testing starting at Blackwater Hospital from late on Wednesday.

    A fever clinic also will be established at the Blackwater Rodeo Grounds on Thursday for the estimated 5000 people living in and around Blackwater, near Emerald.

    A post mortem will be carried out in the next few days to determine the cause of Mr Turner’s death and it has been referred to the coroner.

    If COVID-19 is confirmed as the cause of death, Mr Turner will be Australia’s youngest fatality from the virus. There have been 103 confirmed COVID-19 deaths across the country, including his.

    The previous youngest victim of the virus in Australia was a 42-year-old man from The Philippines who was a crew member of the Artania cruise ship.

    Apparently the second WuFlu test on the deceased has come out negative.
    So now there is some back-pedalling along the lines of ‘…but, but…what if…coulda…woulda…can’t ever be too safe…gotta be vigilant…”

    Careful duncanm, his partner has shown signs of being ill. She’s not had a completed test as far as I’m aware. Showing signs of being ill being completely unlikely after your partner dies after (and probably from) a long illness and you’ve been supporting them and now suddenly you don’t have as much pressure to work or course.
    F’ing liars.

  23. C.L.

    This just in:

    Queensland Health has confirmed a second coronavirus sample that was taken from Mr Turner was negative.

    However, Mr Miles said it was a poor sample and was considered invalid.

    “The Chief Health Officer advises me that she doesn’t believe that that second test is valid but we’ll know for sure once the full post mortem has been conducted.”

    Mr Turner’s partner also has coronavirus symptoms and is in quarantine at home in Blackwater.

    Her initial COVID-19 test returned a negative result.

    A full post mortem is now the testing procedure?

    Small town: Actually 5000 population. The autopsy would have been done in nearby Emerald, population 20,000 (commuting distance) or in Rockhampton (only 100 miles)
    400km: Rockhampton is 170km or so.
    Keep the political pressure on: You Betcha!
    This proves Anastacia is right & correct to keep the border closed, & correct to keep her foot on the neck of all Queenslanders.

    Yes. i have noted the regular ‘everyone’s at risk’ stories being inserted, presumably to damp down the increasing resistance to the restrictions by the young, who are least at risk medically and most at risk financially.

    My brother, who works in the NHS told me a similar story about the UKs ‘youngest ever victim’. The media portrayed it as a’tragic case of a 13yo girl, showing just how indiscriminate this nasty virus is’ and why we ‘cannot let up, whatever the sacrifice’. His inside knowledge was she was a grossly damaged disabled child, who’s coup de grace came when her breathing tube was accidentally dislodged as she was being ventilated prone in the ICU.

    Indeed! Blackwater is a mining town, and is hardly noted for its beauty. I’ve been there, looked about, and decided not to bother again. The idea of driving there from Rocky to view a sunset (or a sunrise) is completely and utterly preposterous.

    It’s a long enough drive there and back again, without stopping somewhere along the way for breaks, and a lone female driving at night out there would be ill-advised to stop anywhere but in a populated area or a service station (not many of either). Plenty of ‘roos out there to stuff up a night time drive too.

    Seriously, it’s not a drive to be indulged in merely to look at a sunset.

  41. Snoopy

    It remains unclear if Covid-19 was the actual cause of death, and there have been questions surrounding a second postmortem test, which came back negative.

    Queensland’s chief health officer, Dr Jeannette Young, said this negative test was invalid.

    “It was done … after the gentleman had died, and it was contaminated with quite a bit of blood, so, therefore, it wasn’t an effective test,” she said. “There was a test done [before] which is a very sensitive test, and it came back positive. So I believe it was a positive.”

    It would be interesting to know how a victim’s own blood contaminates a test.

    So he had co-morbidities, and therefore the additional contribution of COVID should be ignored?
    Maybe need to consider the fact that 50% of the Australian population has one or more significant chronic diseases.

  45. Win

    So Jeanette Young has four planes on the ground with crew and supply’s waiting to specifically to collect Corona virus patients. Now that’s what you call over kill.

  46. Rockdoctor

    Seriously, it’s not a drive to be indulged in merely to look at a sunset.

    Agreed the nurse is suspect. The road from Dauringa to Dingo is quite nasty for roos on dawn & dusk. We used to have to wash down at Dauringa as Blackwater didn’t have the capability at the time. Driven that road a few times at night and you wouldn’t do it even for a look at a sunrise over the Blackdown Tablelands anyway…

  47. Up The Workers!

    What is just one more lie when you are the Queensland Head of the Australian Liars Party?

    “There will be no Carbon Tax under the…You know…The Stuff!”

  48. Up The Workers!

    If the deceased had high blood pressure, diabetes, heart failure, a stroke and prostate cancer, you wouldn’t attribute his eventual death to a stubbed toe or an unsightly pimple on their nose for purely Leftard political purposes, so why would you fraudulently attribute it to the Peking Pox; the Chinese Cough; the Socialist Syphilis; the Bolshevik Botulism; the Leftard’s Lament?

    Of the supposed 100 deaths from Uncle Xi’s Peking Pox in Australia, how many were actually from that disease – would it be 25%? 10%? 5%? and were all the others from the so-called “co-morbidities”?

    Totalitarian Leftard pollies are merely gillarding us with the same deliberate torrent of Labor/Leftard bovine excrement-shovelling and Apocalyptic Catastropharianism which has thus far given us gerbil worming Armageddon, carbon Armageddon, carbon-dioxide Armageddon, human breath Armageddon, rising sea-level Armageddon, overpopulation Armageddon, genetically modified food Armageddon, starvation Armageddon, pollution Armageddon, carnivore Armageddon, brown coal Armageddon, reliable power supply Armageddon, nuclear Armageddon, Global Cooling and the next Ice Age Armageddon – not one of which has ever come true, nor is ever likely to..

    This is merely the latest Leftard “Armageddon du Jour”.

    Most of these 100 people have arguably died with coronavirus, rather than from coronavirus – in much the same manner as a person could die with a stubbed toe, or a pimple on their nose, but not from it.

    Whenever there are statistics involved, the natural inclination of the bent Leftard is to fiddle the stats and corruptly cook the books, as they are so proudly and openly boasting about in this very instance.

  49. Up The Workers!

    Whenever Dodgy Dan, the Palace Chook, the A.L.P.’s “Australian Carr Industry” – Bob Carr & Kim Carr, Dim Sam Dastyari, or Paul Keating appear in public in future, out of due respect, they should be preceded by a loud fanfare consisting of the A.L.P.’s latest popular theme song: “I Like Chinese”, by Monty Python.
