South Australia's hated exercise ban will end IMMEDIATELY

  South Australia's hated exercise ban will end IMMEDIATELY South Australia's hated exercise ban will end immediately and the state's strict lockdown will comes to a close at midnight on Saturday.Premier Steven Marshall announced the strict lockdown imposed on the state, which was based on the false information, will end three days early on Saturday, with millions of residents immediately let out to exercise.

People in quarantine are likely to develop symptoms of psychological stress and disorder and the scale of the current COVID-19 lockdown is unprecendented. With some 2.6 billion people around the world in some kind of lockdown , we are conducting arguably the largest psychological experiment ever

Over the course of a single week, South Australia was plunged into one of the world’s strictest, and briefest, lockdowns.

The drama, estimated to have cost the state’s economy $100 million, came down to pizza. Specifically, fears the state’s outbreak of COVID-19 was an especially virulent strain transmissible by pizza boxes.

In the end, it actually came down to a kitchen hand lying about having a second job at a pizzeria, rather than simply being a customer, as he first told contact tracers.

South Australian Premier Steven Marshall has said authorities will use “all and every avenue to throw the book at this person”.

Members of South Australia Police’s “Taskforce Protect” have reportedly combed through hundreds of hours of CCTV and seized phones, a laptop and a hard drive “directly related to the person of interest”.

It is understandable state authorities would want to signal the importance of truthfulness in this scenario. But the instinct to grasp punitive measures fails to account for the cause of the problem.

This debacle again illustrates the problem of insecure and low-paid work, and the moral jeopardy it forces on hundreds of thousands of people just trying to make ends meet.

We’ve seen this before, in Victoria, with the problem of nursing home staff and meat processing workers still going to work and not self-isolating despite having COVID-19 symptoms.

NT Health Minister Natasha Fyles announced on Friday they will be revoking Greater Adelaide's hotspot designation from 9am on Saturday under advice from Chief Health Officer Dr Hugh Heggie. The decision comes after SA Premier Steven Marshall said his state would be ending its planned six-day lockdown three days early on Saturday.

Now South Australia has illuminated the problems of workers in ‘essential’ jobs having to moonlight in second jobs, and perhaps feeling the need to lie about it.

We need a holistic response that considers the systemic reasons that force people into such situations to preserve their livelihood.

Holding down second jobs

At least two links in the chain of events leading to the South Australian outbreak highlight the problem of precarious and insecure work.

The first is how the pizzeria — the Woodville Pizza Bar — became a transmission vector.

That had to do with a kitchen hand at the pizzeria also working as a security guard at Peppers Hotel — one of the hotels being used to quarantine travellers returning to the state. He apparently caught the virus from a cleaner at the hotel, who caught it from a quarantined guest.

This part of the story has prompted calls for workers at quarantine hotels to be banned from working second jobs.

To which the obvious retort should be, if we don’t want people to work two jobs, perhaps we should ensure they have enough hours and pay so they don’t need to.

Migrants in plight

The second link — the man who lied about working at the pizzeria — speaks to the predicament faced by tens of thousands of people in Australia on visas (in this case, a temporary graduate visa).

In a bizarre coincidence, he too was working in the kitchen at another quarantine hotel (The Stamford).

There are an estimated 900,000 foreign nationals in Australia on visas with work rights, almost always with restrictions. The jobs they find are often insecure low-paid casual or gig jobs, possibly cash in hand.

Many of these jobs — in hospitality, for instance — were the first to disappear with lockdowns. And because they aren’t citizens, they have been excluded from federal government financial support.

Address the problem, not the symptoms

Sure lying is wrong — particularly if it shuts a city down.

But it should also be unsurprising in the face of fear — and fear of losing work is central to insecure work.

SA police seize mobile devices from man whose coronavirus lie sent state into lockdown

  SA police seize mobile devices from man whose coronavirus lie sent state into lockdown South Australian investigators are examining the mobile devices of a man who told contact tracers he ordered a pizza from a restaurant linked to a COVID-19 cluster when he actually worked there.Officers from Task Force Protect are examining the devices as part of their investigation into the circumstances of the Parafield coronavirus cluster, Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said on Sunday.

This is compounded for migrant workers by an additional fear: losing the right to stay in the country, through breaking rules that limit working hours.

But they often have little choice, as the only way to make enough money to compensate for being exploited and often earning well below the minimum wage.

What has happened in South Australia is a symptom of the same problem that bedevilled Victoria’s outbreak. It should have been foreseeable.

Researchers have been warning about the negatives for years. The pandemic has made them plain.

A punitive and knee-jerk call for punishment is at best another half measure.

It won’t fix the systematic problem of precarious work.
