With Omicron winding down in several parts of the world, it is good to look at how various countries have dated against COVID-19. Australia in particular, with its extreme “zero tolerance” policies, warrants a bit of scrutiny.
Australia is one of the more highly vaccinated countries, with nearly 80% of the population vaccinated.
How did vaccination impact case counts? It didn't. Especially once Omicron arrived.
Did the vaccines help against COVID-19 mortality? Not especially.
For all the government bluster, the data shows the vaccines were no more than marginally effective (if that) at preventing either disease and/or death. For this Australia cast aside fundamental human rights and basic civil liberties.
Was it worth it?
