Not to the same scale, but nearly 2000 locally acquired cases. Really the first wave was contained to NSW, hardly any cases by comparison in the other states. The fact it didn't get out of hand like Victoria is not because it wasn't tested - it's because is was tested and succeeded. Victoria failed their test spectacularly.By the same logic NSW was never really tested either as NSW never had rampant Covid 19 community spread.
Please explain how the SA response was not an overaction and has lasting economic consequences (still not allowed in WA or QLD). My point was that the outbreak itself wasn't big, but the response was not proportional.Well I would guess that you would be wrong. The SA outbreak was/is not that big and all that was/is required in the main for such a situation is the two rings of containment method that was demonstrated in Vic to work so well.
