trump says "Australia has huge problems"with covid19
This man is a master of pulling the wool over peoples eyes.
he is saying that the virus has "come back" to Australia.
He is correct......well a little bit.
The virus is back in Victoria...not in Australia. it is in one state.
lets get the statistics shall we?
America 150000 dead and 4 and a half million cases
Australia 196 dead and around 15000 cases
now USA has around 15 times the population....and yet the USA death s are 750 times higher.
he is trying to say
Look the virus is no worse here than anywhere else (meaning America) see its happening everywhere you cant blame me !!
which of course is absolute rubbish...
there is another large difference . The Federal and state governments in Australia , even tho on opposite sides of the fence are actually (if somewhat grudgingly)working together to bring the virus under control.
We are in an enforced lockdown.....we have compulsory masks....we have called in the Australian Defence Forces to help. there are enforceable penalties for breaking either rule. There is a $300 payment for those waiting to get test results if they have no sickleave and a $1500 payment for those who have the virus so they can stay home while they are sick if they have no sickleave. For EVERY person diagnosed with this virus.. starting from a few days ago...the ADF will knock on their door...if they are not home they will be referred to police but also they will be asked if they need any food or meds etc and the ADF will arrange to get it to them...
I dont appreciate the Bozo in the White House trying to gain political mileage by telling half truths and generally manipulating the information to present it in a way that (if people dont bother to check)that makes him look better
