Our Covid mindset must change

Michael McLaren

Cameron Stewart, Associate Editor at The Australian newspaper, who wrote in his latest opinion piece that Australia’s Covid-19 mindset must change if we are ever to open up the country.

 

Mr Stewart writes, ‘Australia is finally beginning the most important mental adjustment of this pandemic as it grasps what the rest of the world has known for months – that the ­unavoidable price of freedom from Covid-19 is the acceptance of death.’

 

‘We are not talking about just a few deaths but many deaths, possibly in the thousands, if Australia is to join the rest of the Western world in opening up and resuming something approximating normal life.’

 

‘It’s a jarring but necessary transition for a country that prided itself on a low death count during the deadliest phase of the pandemic last year and then became addicted to the fantasy idea that zero Covid was possible into the future.’
