  1. As an Australian, I’m quite happy with what my government has done, to virtually eliminate SARS Cov 2.

    Meanwhile, in other western countries like the United States in Great Britain the virus is running wild.

    1. Remote islands have an advantage of course. When the virus spread was at its height and the British population was instructed not to leave their homes international flights from virus hot spots were still pouring into London. A disadvantage of being an international hub.

  2. Specious argument…
    Island or no island, it’s a matter of how you deal with your borders, and quarantine travellers when they arrive, which we have done a good job of.

    We are having thousands of Australians returning home every day, and on top of that, other people from overseas, such as the Indian test team.

    In large part, England and the US are having record amounts of cases and deaths, because of government mismanagement.

    1. A lot of Brits would agree with you about our porous borders but that has not been a concern of our govts for the last twenty years. And yes – government mismanagement is the core issue.

      1. Huh? Porous borders for 20 years?

        We’re talking about quarantining and the like, within the context of the coronavirus.
