For some crazy reason the political/business class and the media have outwardly forgotten there’s a global pandemic going on, but the situation in Australia is very bad (we have the highest daily case rate outside of microstates atm). I keep reading Twitter threads about the hospital system – and hospital diversion systems, like “hospital in the home” – being completely overwhelmed and breaking down. I know everyone is sick of lockdowns but we need SOMETHING to try to decrease transmission; this is completely unsustainable.
