Go Aussies!!! 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺 Lets make it clear, the app offers no protection to Covid 19 doesn’t keep anyone safe. All it allows is someone to tell u that u may possibly b infected some time after a person has been tested positive. By that time u may have infected many, So not making u safe just informed.

I never turn bluetooth on. Never will. I’m wondering what population his 40% is from. 40% of all Australians or 40% of smartphone users with supported devices? Can anyone actually tell me? With Bluetooth on others will be able to hack your phone and on-line banking details. If you download this app get rid of any online banking apps. Otherwise downloading this app could prove to be a costly mistake.

Sure Scotty. Come over to our house for dinner on Friday night to explain the COVID app. While you are there, you might explain to my wife Joy, who has terminal cancer, how the stress of 20 years of Govt lies & legal deceit didn’t contribute to her cancer. The only thing that keeps us safe is not listening to you politicians and your fear mongering horse shit. You’ve done more damage to people’s health by closing the economy than any flu could ever do..Your app can go get 🖕

If you had 5mill I'd think myself very lucky Yes Scotty, i will bend over and spread my cheeks for au gov. Bollocks

That same day saw 13,000 tests being undertaken in the state, the biggest day of testing so far, Premier DanielAndrewsMP says.
