What’s happening in Australia?

This week’s opinion piece is a global piece:

By Lucy J, School Prefect
 
It may not seem relevant for me to be talking about Australia; however, it is more important than ever today for us to have a global mindset and keep up to date with worldwide issues, such as the Coronavirus, as it has left a detrimental impact on all of us across the whole wide world.
 
Australia has been affected by the pandemic very differently from the UK as a result of having different restrictions and policies in place. The Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, initially closed all Australian borders to non-residents on the 20th March 2020. This had a positive result as there was no constant stream of people travelling with the virus into the country. This, plus a nationwide lockdown, made the cases relatively low compared to the rest of the world, particularly at a first glance.
 
However, there has been a second wave of infections, which surged in Melbourne back in June, which resulted in a strict lockdown. Australia’s approach was often praised by the media as they acted quickly to tackle the infection. Yet it is important to remember, when comparing Australia to the UK, that the UK has nearly three times the population of Australia, so numerically our virus cases appear to be larger.
 
Australia has suffered turbulence this year, despite the pandemic, facing multiple protests throughout the year. One of the biggest protests, causing the greatest disruption, was the anti-lockdown protests. Some Australians were demanding that the lockdown restrictions were lifted, feeling their liberty and freedom have been taken away. In Melbourne, the Covid restrictions were extremely harsh, resulting in unrest amongst its people. Additionally, the Black Lives Matter Protests earlier in the year after the horrific killing of George Floyd in Minnesota in May were prominent in Australia.
 
Overall, Coronavirus has had a devastating impact on nearly every single person’s life from across the world. We are all interconnected. It is therefore always important to remain in touch with global current affairs and to remember we are all in this together.
