We find this LDP statement eminently sensible.
Coronavirus is a real problem, but the government’s response is being driven by fear that is out of proportion to the actual risk. The current policy of “zero COVID” is absurd, impossible, and hugely costly. The only sustainable solution is that Australia will need to learn how to live with COVID just as we live with the flu and other viruses. Ongoing government restrictions have created massive harms in terms of personal freedom, children’s education, struggling businesses & community groups, government debt, lost personal connections, loss of privacy, deteriorating health & happiness, mental health issues, and lives lost. This cannot continue. Australia needs some real leadership to show a clear path out of the current mess.
