We have this new strain. It is more infectious, and the Queensland government took a prudent course of action, which was a short, sharp lockdown in the Brisbane area.
Now, obviously, we need to get the virus under control as quickly as possible and that will determine the speed and the trajectory of our economic recovery.
But, as a nation, we have been remarkably successful on the health front. Yesterday we saw 13 cases in Australia. Globally, there were three-quarters of a million cases.
In the United States, nearly a quarter of a million cases in the UK 50,000 cases.
