Here’s a news clip from Australia describing the premiere’s “No Regrets” lockdown policy after a single death from COVID-19 was recorded. It looks much like the most severe lockdowns from America in 2020, except even more so. At least they’re not welding people into their apartments, but it’s close.
No, this isn’t satire; this isn’t from a horror movie.

And all this over 111 cases and 1 death. Unbelievable.

The man who died is older than the average life expectancy.

Apparently, the one fatality was a person in their 80s.
900 thousand people's life compromised because one 80+ years old senior died.
Who wants to live this way? What's the point?

82K tests, 111 cases, 1 death. When they open back up, they'd better cancel driving as well. Seems like a similar ratio. 100K drivers, 100 accidents or fender benders, and 1 death.

Car crash kills one. All highways are now closed.

This can't be real…….can it?

Let me get this straight. 900,000 people are locked down because an 80 year old man died?

Terrifying and I'm not talking about the single death of an 80 plus year old.

This is insane level shit.

1/10 of 1% test positive with 1 death and this is the result. Ridiculous.

This is not right

Seems they want to isolate Australia from the rest of the world forever.

So a 0.1% infection rate and of those infected less than a 1% death rate, in a guy who probably had a ton of underlying conditions. And they’re shutting down completely. I mean I get being safe but that’s mandated neuroticism

Whatever. This is really getting old and boring.

This is control, and it is not about the virus. 99.9% survivable…

What happens if there is a second death?
— Fran Fitzpatrick (@FranFitzpatri19) July 21, 2021
As stupid as it is Australians are allowing it to happen. A bully will slap you as much and hard as you let him.

This truly has to be one of the most ludicrous news bulletins in history
"A man in his eighties has died, so we have shut the country down" 🤯
We truly are through the looking glass
How can an economically developed, educated & democratic country have so badly lost its way? 😢

This really is crazy, although some governors in America are probably wishing they’d done the same.
