There’s always going to be a new germ or mutation, so we’re just going to go from lockdown to lockdown. From Michael Snyder at themostimportantnews.com:
I am extremely concerned about how some national governments are choosing to respond to this new variant. In particular, I think that officials in Australia have gone completely nuts. Now that a third state has implemented new restrictions, more than half of the country is currently under lockdown…
More than half of Australia’s 25 million people were under lockdown on Tuesday after a third state adopted movement curbs to rein in the highly contagious Delta variant of coronavirus.
Australia’s infections and deaths are well below other developed nations, but its use of lockdowns, prompted by a sluggish vaccination campaign, is putting pressure on the national government, with polls at their lowest in a year and just months before elections are due to be held.
Once upon a time, I used to recommend Australia as a potential relocation destination.
But I don’t think that I will ever be able to recommend Australia again after what we have witnessed during this pandemic.
