AAPThe University of Melbourne’s epidemiologist professor Tony Blakely disagreed with Latham, advocating not for a shutdown, but slowly allowing 60% of Australians to become infected.
Jones: “If we flatten the curve, I understand you say we’re in for the long haul, where if we’d gone down the eradication curve we may have crossed the bridge earlier?”
If we’d gone for eradication it would’ve been utter lockdown for three months, with a 50-50 chance of success.
But we have made the decision to flatten the curve and we all need to get on board with that.
We need 60% of Australians to slowly get infected in a way where it is managed and we have the least harm.”
