*looks over at Australia*

... Yeah one week ain't gonna do the job, guys.

On the other hand, half of what's so bad in Australia is because they let the situation in Sydney spiral for almost two weeks of half-measures because we dare not do anything that would inconvenience the rich assholes who live there.

It's absolutely horrifying to watch... 75-80% of cases isolated before they were infectious, universal mask mandates, and STILL nothing short of complete shutdown has actually begun to stop the nightmare, rather than just throw sparks off the track as it accelerates. There are just too many farks who simply will not not be plague rats unless absolutely everything is closed.

There's a lot of people in Australia that are really pissed at how piss poor their government has handled the vaccine rollout. If they'd been even, say, 30-40% vaccinated that would have made enough of a dent that they could've probably beaten it without hard lockdowns. But they got complacent. They never invested in proper quarantine facilities, even after it was demonstrated that the ****ing virus is now malignant enough to escape them on a semi-regular basis.

Iran reported 25,441 new cases on Monday and 213 deaths over the past day, bringing the overall death toll to 87,374 from among more than 3.5 million confirmed cases in the pandemic.

Sure bro. Multiply that by at last 3-4 times.

In sanctions-hit Iran, which has the highest COVID-19 death toll in the Middle East, less than 2% of the population of 84 million has received both doses, mainly of the imported Russian and Chinese vaccines.

So what you're saying is that you want more COVID?

Biden should offer Iran all the pfizer/moderna vaccines they want in exchange for the nuclear deal.
