While the United States likes to describe itself as the leader of the free world, the coronavirus pandemic has hit it just as hard, if not worse, than many developing nations.
No-one knows this better than Anthony Fauci, America’s top infectious disease expert, who on Wednesday spoke to an Australian audience as part of an event hosted by the Kirby Institute at the University of New South Wales.
Dr Fauci contrasted the “inconsistent response” of the United States with that of Australia’s tough border and lockdown policy, which has kept the virus largely at bay here.
“At least looking at it from a distance, and then discussing with my Australian friends and colleagues, you had the capability and the uniformity of your citizens that when you shut down, you really shut down very effectively,” he said.
