I thought I chuck this one in, below.
Remember how a few on here constantly told us (me in particular!) how shit the government was doing dealing with Covid and pointed out how brilliant other country's were dealing with it - particularly Australia and New Zealand...Australia Covid: Arrests at anti-lockdown protests
Demonstrations have taken place in Australian cities against tight restrictions imposed to tackle a rise in Covid cases.
Thousands gathered in Sydney, with smaller protests held in Melbourne and Brisbane.
People chanted "freedom" as they marched through the centre of Sydney. Officers said they had made 57 arrests.
Australian governments have re-imposed lockdowns across the country amid a surge in new infections.The arrival of the highly contagious Delta variant has challenged the country's previous strategy of border closures, quarantine programmes and snap lockdowns which helped keep cases low.
Vaccination rates remain the lowest among developed nations, with fewer than 14% of people jabbed.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-57952516Malcolm Turnbull: Australia ex-PM says vaccine rollout 'a colossal failure'

It's been a long journey for everyone and fwiw right now, we seem to be better placed than most other countries.
Not bad considering how criminally inept Boris, Hancock, Cummings and all their crony mates have been...
...or maybe, God forbid, some have continually judged them simply on their political prejudice, reinforced by social media claims about corruption and sleaze (not a single one yet to have been proved!) and not on what has actually been achieved from where we started when the pandemic hit!
Just a thought.
