Australia, with its 25 million people, is now at a per-capita COVID rate that is 1,425 times lower than the US rate.
Yeah, we'd be at 1-2 deaths/day if we had done as well.
And before you start the "population density" BS, their urbanization rate is 86% vs our 83. Having big deserts doesn't stop COVID in the major metro centers.
And if you're going to say "they're an island", please do the math to show what % of our COVID transmission is coming from Mexican and Canadian visitors. Yeah, just about zero.
This also crushes the "maybe Asians are genetically less susceptible" excuses. It can be done with Anglo gene pools, as NZ previously demonstrated.
Australia is having unmasked music festivals. Good on ya!
