Tbh, Australia is now at the same level as we are in Germany - but Australia has started months later.

Australia has really good numbers - we here in Germany not so much if you look at the time.

I really don’t want to talk down at the Australian numbers, they are great. But I think it’s much more important to look at the whole population. That’s all. 🙂

Entirely depends on the conversation.

If you are talking about how safe is the community, then whole population might make more sense. If you are talking about the effectiveness of the rollout, or the population’s willingness to protect itself, then it makes more sense to discuss only eligible people.

I’m Australian and a medical scientist who is also studying post graduate data science. You’re 100% right.

Our government is led by Trump-lite who is a bible bashing moron who gives no fucks about anything. When our country was on fire he fled to Hawaii for a holiday, all through covid he made the state governments handle quarantine matters (quarantine is written as a federal matter in our constitution) and he even brought a big lump of coal to parliament one day when pushing back against clean energy.

Our vaccination rollout got out to an atrocious start, we bought only AstraZeneca then our Murdoch news started to fear monger about the blood clot side affects. Our previous PM from the more central-left party had to personally contact the CEO of pfizer to ask for more vaccines, he doesn’t even work in parliament anymore.

It’s no wonder he wants the highest possible % shown, even though it makes no sense… I hope he’s gone soon 🙁

Finally, I know that camDown is your security solution to protect you and your business from peeping toms and that's the no lie!
