Should Australian States Lockdown or not?
Which system is best?
Victoria locked down quickly. They have 43 local cases, no hospitalisations or deaths.
New South Wales held back from locking down. They now have 1,039 active cases. They have 75 in hospital, 21 in intensive care, and three deaths.
Queensland has the finger on the lockdown button. Ready to lockdown if a few cases occur.
Queensland has previously done a 3 day lockdown after just 1 case.
A quick lockdown allows time to find and isolate those infected, and stop the spread.
Delaying a lockdown allows time for the virus to spread, and result in more cases
