Covid-19 has spread throughout the country, moving Australia from a virus-free shelter to one of the most devastated shelters in the world.
Australia was once regarded as a world-class example of repelling the Covid-19, but is now one of the most devastating countries in the world.
Due to sporadic blockades and careful restrictions over 18 months, Australia’s daily Covid-19 cases and deaths are relatively low compared to similar countries around the world.
But the advent of Omicron in December changed everything a lot.
According to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University, the average number of cases in Australia for 7 days is 87,815 per day.
As a result, the Covid-19 infection rate per 100,000 people is the highest, ranking 13th in the world with 346 cases.
As a result, Australia is higher than the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada and South Africa. It is believed that Omicron first appeared.
But with the removal of countries with a population of less than 100,000, Australia comes in seventh, behind Seychelles, Ireland, France, Montenegro, the Channel Islands and Denmark.
By comparison, Australia’s per 100,000 mortality rate remains low, ranking 79th at a rate of 0.10.
On the other hand, in the UK with a population of 67.2 million, there is a ratio of 233 per 100,000. Its mortality rate is 0.36.
In the United States, with a population of 329.5 million, there are 229 cases per 100,000 and a mortality rate of 0.52.
In South Africa, which was considered the epicenter of the Omicron subspecies last month, only 12 per 100,000. Its mortality rate is .29.
This data may be well below the actual Covid-19 figures in many countries, but test rates are low in many developing countries and accurate data can be reported in some countries. not.
It is believed that the number of cases is not accurately reported in Australia as well, and rapid antigen testing is difficult to obtain, and a long line of PCR tests has put off many.
Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce told Nine Network Thursday morning that it was clear to see Omicron “everywhere.”
“The place is alive with it,” he said.
“Fortunately, it’s a mild case, and for those who have been double vaccinated, I’ve experienced it. It’s like 2.5 / 10th of the flu for a few days, and that’s what I’ve experienced. This is the method.
“And I know that some people can kill you. For some people, that seriousness isn’t set aside.”
Australia recorded the worst day of the pandemic on Wednesday, with 50 deaths nationwide.
Currently, of the approximately 700,000 active cases nationwide, only 4010 are hospitalized. Of these, 350 are in the intensive care unit and 101 are on ventilator.
