This non-controversial site has real detail about what Australia did wrong (and a bit about what it did right) to control Covid.
I’m still on the farm in South Australia, where the impact on us has been very very low, thank heavens. We had a ‘light’ lockdown for about 3 weeks in March 2020, a 3-day lockdown two months ago, and virtually no community transmission – almost all have been OS or interstate returning travelers, who were put into quarantine immediately. We still have compulsory contract tracing requirements, signing in or producing the phone ap to register going into shops and other businesses, and there are limits to numbers for some of them eg pubs. We are so much luckier than NSW and Victoria, and have huge sympathy for the US, where there are so many cases that the contact tracing must be next to impossible.
I thought some of you might be interested in something detailed about what has gone wrong, in a country which is held up as being a poster case for doing it right. We now have a Hollywood 'invasion' because this is one of the few places in the world where it's still practical to shoot a movie!
