C'mon you Mexican's, dig deep! With a bit more effort you can break the 2,000 mark and still have a case rate less than half the UK - who are still racking up 40,000 a day.Well done Danistan, awesome work, setting new records in Covid mediocrity every week.
2,297 new cases today, a new record for the so-called "nation" of Australia. It's heartening to see those soul-destroying lockdowns (that made Melbourne the most-detained-city on the planet) and arresting kiddies for daring to use a playground is working sooooo well to keep numbers down.
And yet, I still cannot visit my rellies in Sicktoria, lest I bring the pestilence with me from NSW. I dungeddit....
On a serious note now, though, 11 deaths isn't even worth writing home about, really in the big scheme of things - and for what we have given up and are continuing to do so in the case of our Mexican readers, I think a lot of people are starting to seriously question whether or not it has all been worth it?
Because from where I sit, the answer is a most definite NO!
Really charming post.....
Remind me where this outbreak originated from and what early steps were taken to at least try and minimise the outbreak? And why NSW has exited lockdown earlier than Victoria, when it was provided with a whole lot more vaccines. You know what I can't visit relies in Sydney either and I have family overseas who I haven't seen in years.
I noticed in another post you raised WA and QLD keeping their borders closed but didn't mention that Tasmania and SA are basically doing the same thing.
Has it all been worth it? We can ask that same question the world over, not just in Australia. Maybe the only point I agree with is the Playground ban and separately the construction ban was counterproductive - but that was at least an attempt to bring the case numbers down to zero and even then both restrictions were lifted not long after.
IMO we would all be out of this if we hadn't been so scared of Astrazeneca (culprits include the Media, the Feds, the QLD CHO). I was prepared to take the risk but so many of my friends and family refused too.
