Tim Reading started this petition to QLD PREMIER

As a Gold Coast resident, I am watching our local businesses, particularly tourism, be completely decimated generally by the lockdown, but more specifically as a result of the closure of our borders. QLD relies heavily on tourism, both domestically and internationally, employing 42,000 and bringing in over $4.5 billion annually. 

The QLD Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, is claiming that the medical advice she is receiving has determined that we will be safer if our borders remain closed. Should the borders remain closed, we require 2 very specific items:

1) The immediate release of that medical advice. It must contain very specific information including and not limited to: The lethality of Covid 19; How testing is rolled out; What specific antibodies the test kits are specifically testing for; The number of hospital beds with ventilators that are now available; The total number of ventilators that have been required thus far specifically relating to Covid 19; and the maximum number of concurrent ventilators that were required at any one point (and given day)during 2020

2) Copies of the studies that show the cost of keeping the borders closed, is projected to be less than the forecast cost of reopening. The cost relating specifically to human life. Those studies will need to demonstrate that the projected spike in loss of life from suicides and domestic violence will be less than the loss of life from Covid 19.
