On Monday, a Victoria state judge was scheduled to begin hearing a case challenging the validity of lockdown measures -- specifically the now-scrapped curfew -- reportedly brought by a cafe owner frustrated by plummeting revenues.

No, brought on by a candidate for Liberal Party (opposition) pre-selection for the next election, hoping to curry favour with her new masters.

She must be so disappointed.

Overall, Australia has been relatively successful in curbing the spread of COVID-19, with just over 27,000 cases and 875 deaths in a population of 25 million.

Interesting.

Australia's case fatality rate is 3.4% . Japan's is 1.9%. Australia's deaths per 100,000 is 3.49. Japan's is 1.22.

Yet Australia is relatively successful but Japan isn't?

Who is saying Japan has not also been relatively successful up to now? No one in this report. Both nations have so far managed to keep the death toll low - though quite a few regional neighbours have done better than them : NZ, South Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand.

Unfortunately there is still be a long way to go, I for one wont be patting ourselves on the back just yet.
