Zero COVID-19 - The Bullshit That Is

Zero COVID-19 - The Bullshit That Is

A child could sniff out the irrationality of a zero COVID-19 strategy:

The unending economic nightmare created by Australia's zero-Covid strategy, The Telegraph, 26th of July 2021


If a double jabbed person can test positive then if every single person was jabbed you still would never achieve a zero COVID-19 state.


COVID-19 is a member of the coronavirus group, as is the common cold and flu. So, does Australia implement a zero-common cold and zero-flu nation? Pre-COVID-19, if you'd have said to anyone in Australia that we are aiming for a zero-common cold and zero-flu country, they'd have laughed at you. But zero-COVID-19 - they actually took it seriously. The only way you'd achieve a zero-COVID-19 state is to not test anyone.


Australia is governed by simpletons. Or, is it a case of Australia being governed by China who are trying to bankrupt the Australian economy so they can move in and own the country? A bit of both I think.

Update

I saw that by October 2021, New Zealand had given up on it's flawed zero-COVID-19 strategy:

New Zealand makes COVID vaccines mandatory for doctors, teachers, Aljazeera, 11th of October 2021.

Persistent infections forced Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s government to abandon its longstanding strategy of “COVID Zero”.

What a bunch of numpties.

Daft China

I see that 2 years on China was sticking with a zero-COVID-19 strategy following the outbreak of Omicron/Moronic:

As costs mount, how long can China stick with ‘zero COVID’?, Aljazeera, 21st of January 2022.

And by February 2022, China was bullying Hong Kong into the bullshit that is zero-COVOD-19:

Xi orders draconian measures as Hong Kong fails to contain Omicron, The Times, 16th of February 2022.

More Than Two Years On

In April 2022, China was still enforcing its strategy of zero-COVID-19. As I've stated previously, a moron could spot the flaws in such an approach, and yet more than two of this nonsense and China still believed it was the way forward:

China’s economy was already in trouble even before Beijing’s disastrous zero-Covid madness, Telegraph, 19th of April 2022.

Countries such as the UK, NZ and Australia tried copying China with this bollocks but ultimately had to drop it as soon as they realised it would bankrupt their countries. It could be argued that they didn't know how long COVID-19 would stick around, and that it could have been over in a couple of months. Nah - CVs have always been with us and always will be. Only a fool would seriously believe that you can isolate from CVs, and as we saw governments such as the UK's was full of such fools.

But China takes the biscuit in persecuting its own citizens, many of which were starving to death and committing suicide in April 2022. What else could be expected from a communist state.
