Success story Australia now a 'stunning failure' over vaccine rollout
Australia is currently seeing a spike in cases in multiple parts of the country - the first time this has happened in months.
Throughout the pandemic, the country has managed to keep case numbers low with strict border closures and lockdowns.
But Prof Tim Soutphommasane from Sydney University says Australia is lagging way behind other developed countries with the rollout of the coronavirus vaccine - and that it will be looked back on as a "stunning failure".
"Australia has been winning the war but it is at serious risk of losing the peace because other countries around the world are rapidly opening up with very well vaccinated populations, leaving Australia behind," he says.
