Australians are pushing back against their government’s heavy-handed approach to Covid as health officials demand even more public booster shots.
Government health officials are now pushing for the people of Australia to have a fifth dose of the Covid vaccine booster.
Australia and New Zealand suffered some of the harshest pandemic mandate conditions of any country in the western world.
On a number of occasions, the nations’ extreme measures crossed the line into totalitarianism.
Australian authorities imposed severe lockdown measures that restricted residents of larger cities to near-house arrest.
At times, people were not allowed to go more than 3 miles from their homes.
Taxpaying citizens were treated like criminals and given curfew hours between 9 pm and 5 am.
They were banned from outdoor spaces such as public parks and beaches without a mask.
In the worst examples, Australian citizens received visits from police for breaking the rules.
Government officials even cracked down on people for posting critical opinions about the mandates on social media.
Some were even arrested for calling for protests against the lockdowns.
In Australia and New Zealand, Covid camps were built to detain people infected with the virus.
Some facilities were meant for those who had recently traveled, while others were meant for anyone who stepped out of line.
As the fears over Covid wane and the public realizes that the true Infection Fatality Rate of the virus is incredibly small, restrictions are being abandoned.
Things seem to be going back to normal.
Nevertheless, Australian health authorities are once again calling for the public to take a fourth covid booster shot.
However, these calls are being met with very little response form the Australian people.
Only 40% of citizens took the third booster, and new polling data shows that 30% are taking the fourth booster.
A large amount of Australians are still not getting their COVID-19 booster shot, despite calls from health authorities to roll up our sleeves for a fifth dose.@eddy_meyer explains. #9News pic.twitter.com/rsjfi4xrFA
