Returned travellers caught COVID-19 in medi-hotel

She said it was a complicated situation. “My staff and I are working through the implications of this,” she said.

“This is complicated. This is complex,” she said.

Professor Spurrier said there was no risk to the public.

“Everyone who needs to be in quarantine is in quarantine,” she said.

Professor Spurrier last week said she believed a returned traveller from Britain who arrived at Peppers on November 2 was the source of the COVID-19 outbreak on November 15, which triggered panic and a full statewide lockdown.

A female cleaner at Peppers aged in her 50s is thought to have become infected through surface transmission, but the latest developments on Tuesday bring further questions.

Earlier on Tuesday, South Australia’s Premier Steven Marshall said he was eyeing a return on December 1 to the minimal restrictions the state had in place before the emergence earlier this month of a COVID-19 cluster that is now seemingly under control.

Mr Marshall also signalled that international repatriation flights to Adelaide were poised to restart on December 1, following a two-week ban while medi-hotelshosted local residents who had been placed into quarantine in a bid to stamp out the Parafield cluster in Adelaide’s northern suburbs.

There are still 39 active cases in South Australia. Earlier on Tuesday Professor Spurrier said she could not declare the cluster beaten just yet but it was close.

“I’d like to see how we go this week,” she said. “I haven’t popped the cork on the champagne bottle yet but the champagne is on ice.”

There are 4100 people still in quarantine or self-isolation, many of whom will re-enter the community over the coming days. She said testing rates had fallen back from 17,000 on Saturday to 7000 on Monday.

Mr Marshall said the state was now well-positioned. He was looking to December 1 as the day the state hoped to ”go back to where we were before the Parafield cluster”.

“We have our eyes firmly fixed on next Tuesday,” he said.

Repatriation ‘role to play’

Victoria on Tuesday hit the milestone of having no active cases for the first time in almost nine months, following a horrendous run during which most people had to endure a 112-day lockdown to battle a second wave of the virus because of a hotel quarantine mishap.

Victoria banned repatriation flights while it battled a major outbreak, with the state having suffered 819 deaths since the pandemic began. SA has recorded just four deaths.

Mr Marshall said 8500 people had been through SA’s medi-hotel system, and the state had a responsibility to keep taking overseas travellers who wanted to return.

“We do have a role to play in the national repatriation of Australian citizens overseas,” he said. “We want to keep our medi-hotels in place.”

The main medi-hotels in the state are all in the Adelaide CBD: Peppers on Waymouth Street, the Stamford on North Terrace and the Pullman Hotel on Hindmarsh Square.

Police have scanned 500 hours of CCTV footage from the hotel

Michigan Lawmakers Caught on Camera Drinking at Trump Hotel

A pair of Michigan lawmakers were caught on camera drinking late into the night at the Trump International Hotel hours after a controversial White House meeting with President Donald Trump.

On Friday, Michigan State Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and Republican speaker of the Michigan House Lee Chatfield traveled to the White House amid concerns that Trump would try to pressure them into somehow overturning President-elect Joe Biden’s win in the state.

Following the meeting, the pair put out a statement that appeared to indicate that no such intervention is in the offing, but Trump, in a pair of Saturday morning tweets, begged to differ.

Lauren Windsor, who produces a web show in Michigan called The Undercurrent, was all over the controversial visit, including pressing Shirkey before the meeting on whether he intended to honor the will of the state’s voters.

She posted video of the encounter, during which Shirkey responded by breaking into a quavering rendition of the hymn “I Believe In A Hill Called Mount Calvary.”

Following the meeting, Windsor caught Leader Chatfield and another state legislator, Rep. Jim Lilly, drinking Dom Perignon at the Trump hotel until the wee hours.

“I guess MI House Speaker @LeeChatfield + @RepJimLillyMI were in a celebratory mood last night, drinking Dom Perignon at the Trump Hotel til midnight,” Windsor wrote on Twitter, posting photos of the revelry.

The photos aroused or confirmed the suspicions of m any that the meeting with Trump was not on the level.

Subic allows hotel quarantine for 377 OFWs caught by Typhoon Rolly

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT—At least 377 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs), arriving here from the Clark Freeport at the height of Typhoon Rolly, had been accommodated in hotels for quarantine.

The first batch of 104 OFWs arrived on Nov. 1 and another batch of 273 arrived on Nov. 2.

They were billeted in various hotels accredited by the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) and the Bureau of Quarantine.

Wilma Eisma, SBMA chair and administrator, said the OFWs were given temporary lodging since Sunday when Rolly threatened Metro Manila and parts of Central Luzon.

“We took them in for humanitarian reasons—and subject to strict health protocols— because there was a storm coming and our kababayans would be trapped at the Clark airport otherwise,” said Eisma in a press release.

She said the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), which is bringing about 500,000 OFWs back to the country, made a “frantic call for help” as hotels in Pampanga province that were accredited by the Department of Tourism (DOT) for such purpose were already full.

Eisma said she requested clearance from the local government units near Subic and they had agreed to take the OFWs in. The returning OFWs were subjected to coronavirus tests before they were brought to Subic quarantine hotels.

Rudy Giuliani caught touching himself in raunchy NYC hotel room scene from new Borat movie: reports

Wa wa wee — yuck!

The new Borat movie features a hidden camera scene of Rudy Giuliani seeming to be touching his genitals in front of a woman he was apparently trying to seduce in a Manhattan hotel room this past summer, according to reports Wednesday.

The 76-year-old former mayor was under the impression that the much younger woman was a conservative journalist interviewing him for a show, according to The Guardian, The Daily Beast and other outlets that viewed the new Sasha Barron Cohen flick, “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,” ahead of its Friday release.

But the woman is actually “Tutar,” the daughter of the movie’s bumbling main character, Borat, according to the reports.

Posing as a reporter, Tutar repeatedly touches Giuliani’s knee while asking him questions during the fake interview, which took place in a luxe Manhattan hotel suite in July, according to the reports.

The unsuspecting ex-mayor, who currently serves as President Trump’s personal attorney, flirts back and plays along with Tutar’s questionable interview topics. At one point, Giuliani even agrees to “eat a bat” with Tutar after she asks him about the animal’s suspected ties to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the fake interview wraps up, Tutar proposes “a drink in the bedroom,” which Giuliani merrily agrees to.

Once in the bedroom, the reports say Giuliani is seen in hidden camera footage removing Tutar’s clip microphone from her dress.

As Tutar removes his clip microphone from his pants, Giuliani is then reportedly seen lying down on a bed before digging his hand into his underwear in a suggestive fashion.

But before things go any further, Borat reportedly storms into the room screaming: “Put down your chram!” — a Kazakh word for penis. “She’s 15! She’s too old for you!”

An unsettled Giuliani, apparently realizing he has been pranked, bolts out of the room as fast as he can, the reports say.

“Rudy, Trump will be disappoint!” Borat shouts after him. “You are leaving hotel without golden shower!”

Giuliani did not return multiple requests for comment Wednesday afternoon.

The ex-mayor has a long history of publicity flubs and embarrassing interactions with journalists.

Just last week, Giuliani accidentally uploaded a video to his YouTube channel of himself making a racist imitation of a Chinese person.

Rudy Giuliani caught in hotel bedroom scene in new ‘Borat’ film

In ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm,’ the former NYC mayor went to the hotel room thinking he was being interviewed about the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response.

NEW YORK — Editor’s note: The related video above was published Feb. 14.

Rudy Giuliani is shown with his hand down his pants after flirting with an actress playing a young woman pretending to be a television journalist in a scene in Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest mockumentary, a sequel to his hit “Borat” film.

The scene shot in a New York hotel room in July — which resulted in Giuliani calling police — includes a moment when Giuliani is seen lying on a bed with his shirt untucked and his hand down his pants with the young woman nearby.

Giuliani went to the hotel room thinking he was being interviewed about the Trump administration’s COVID-19 response. The young woman is flirtatious with him and invites him to the bedroom, which is rigged with hidden cameras.

Giuliani then asks for her phone number and address. He lies back on the bed and has his hands in his pants.

The hotel room scene ends when Baron Cohen, who was disguised as part of the crew, bursts into the room in an outlandish outfit screaming that the young woman is 15 years old. Up to that point, there is no indication she is underage. The character, Borat’s daughter, is played by actress Maria Bakalova, who is listed as 24 years old on the Internet Movie Database site, IMDb.com.

Giuliani had no immediate comment.

The former New York City mayor called police after that encounter, but there is no indication an investigation was launched. Giuliani spoke to the New York Post’s Page Six column about the incident in July, but did not mention the bedroom aspect of the encounter.

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, who profiled Baron Cohen ahead of the the film’s release, tweeted Wednesday about the scene: “It’s even wilder than it sounds. Beyond cringe.”

Trolling those close to President Donald Trump is a central theme of the new “Borat” film, a sequel to the 2006 mockumentary that saw Baron Cohen’s character travel the United States, espousing sexist, racist and anti-Semitic views, and eliciting similar responses from unwitting subjects.

For “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan,” Baron Cohen returns as his alter-ego from Kazakhstan in a plot that involves trying to give his daughter as a gift to Vice President Mike Pence.

The closest Borat gets is the audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he shouts to Pence that he’s brought a woman for him. Dressed in a Donald Trump costume and with Borat’s daughter, played by Bakalova, slung over his shoulder, Baron Cohen is swiftly escorted out by security.

That leads to a second scheme involving Giuliani that ends up in

Giuliani finalized his divorce from his wife of 15 years in December.
