OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

So, did it get out into the community because somebody went walkabout during their SI, or did a fellow household member of the isolator catch it and then take it out into the community? As far as I can hear, that question hasn't been answered. 

Person returned from uk. Passed it on to his wife, who passed it to her sister in another household. 

So now entire households have to isolate so that sister to sister situation does not happen again.

Matter of semantics, it's on-island transmission which was worth flagging separately to an imported case.

if they didnt follow WHO definitions they would be accused of "making it up" and not following the same standards of terminology that UK and elsewhere does

If any of the retired blokes (or ladies) on here can be bothered trawling back through some of the recent pressers, I'm pretty sure we'll hear DA defining community transmission as person-to-person on the Island, nothing about this 'inability to trace an index case'.

The public can only go off what the gods above us educate us with. This is nothing more than a 'clarification' to suit their own agenda.

Only that they caught out and were challenged otherwise we would not have found out

But they are just making it up because they are saying that a particular WHO term applies to this situation.  It doesn't - that term is meant to describe the situation in a country, not how the virus was passed on between particular individuals.

And in the process they're simply making themselves look dishonest, which is that last thing they should be doing in this situation.  Most people will take community transmission to mean transmission within the community as opposed to an imported case where someone in isolation tests positive.
