What a difference
a year makes

Alex Berenson, a former New York Times reporter who now publishes via Substack, has some thoughts on Australia’s COVID clown show:

Australia should have been the world’s ultimate public health and COVID vaccine success story – the nail in the coffin for Team Reality and the Great Barrington Declaration.

Australia did just what the Bill Gates-funded gurus wanted.

It locked down early and hard and stayed that way for almost two years. It closed its borders and responded to local outbreaks with even tougher restrictions. Australian police used drones and automated license plate readers to check if people were more than a few miles from their homes.

The restrictions largely “worked.” (Putting aside their cost to civil liberties, education, and mental health, of course, since those don’t matter to Covid fanatics.) Through the fall of 2021, Australia had few Sars-Cov-2 infections and almost no COVID deaths.

Faith in science! It’s a thing:)

Berenson then reproduces adulatory news reports from 2020/21, in which Australia’s bold actions to lock out the coronavirus are hailed right and left.

The more recent stories he reproduces, however, tell a rather different story about 2022’s soaring COVID cases and deaths in one of the world’s most vaccinated nations, prompting a long comments thread that is also well worth picking through. — rf
