Goodness. What would you say about Victoria where an abattoir outbreak was either deliberately hidden or poorly handled, and now there's been more than 100 persons infected as a result?As ScoMo's judgement is often unsound, I would not put much weight on what he thought or did not think (e.g. in mid-March he thought it was OK to have large gatherings at sporting events, yet two weeks later 10 people at an event was too many).
Most world leaders think Australia's done a very good job in handling coronavirus. Some nations/regions have been even better - like Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macao and until very recently South Korea - but generally ScoMo's judgment has been very good. We've achieved a similar result to NZ but with what seems to be (at this point) less economic pain. Its economy over there isn't as diversified as ours, and it looks to have been economically devastated. There'll be a lot of Kiwis coming to Australia soon.
