This plan was written with something like the 1918 Spanish flu in mind.
126.96.36.199 Menu of Actions (Bolding added by Arky)
…This list is divided into the following broad categories:
• pharmaceutical measures:
antivirals, candidate pandemic vaccines (vaccines based on a strain of influenza virus considered to have pandemic potential) and customised pandemic vaccines (vaccines based on the actual pandemic virus);
• social distancing;
community level interventions to reduce normal physical and social population mixing, in order to slow the spread of a pandemic throughout society;
• border measures:
measures that can be taken at airports and seaports to delay the spread of illness to or from a effected countries (or jurisdictions); and
• infection control measures:
measures to promote hand hygiene, cough/sneeze etiquette; the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
Communications measures are used across the categories. Each category lists the key actions in this area (such as school closures, voluntary isolation or working from home, in the social distancing category) and for each of these actions a summary table is available which outlines suggested factors relevant to determining suitability for implementation.
These factors include:
• rationale and objective;
• evidence of effectiveness*;
• risks and benefits;
• direct and secondary costs;
• likely acceptability;
• practicalities; and
Note that within THEIR OWN PLAN by this time LAST YEAR they should have been doing this:
Individual activities will be regularly assessed and stood down when they no longer contribute to the AHMPPI’s goals. The trigger for the AHMPPI as a whole to move into the Standdown stage will occur when advice from CDNA indicates that the pandemic has reached a level where it can be managed under seasonal influenza arrangements.
Standdown activities will focus on:
• supporting and maintaining quality care;
• ceasing activities that are no longer needed, and transitioning activities to seasonal or interim
• monitoring for a second wave of the outbreak;
• monitoring for the development of antiviral resistance;
• communications activities to support the return from pandemic to normal business services; and
• evaluating systems and revising plans and procedures.
Read the thing. They’ve done little of the actual points in their own plan, allowed State governments to go off reservation with lockdowns, mask mandates, travel limits, border closures and QR codes and completely failed their mission, all for something, that unlike an influenza pandemic, kills virtually no one under the age of 60.
