On Thursday, Australia reported the highest number of covid cases in a day. They had reported two thousand-four hundred seventeen new cases in just 24 hours. As recently as June, three percent of Australians have been fully vaccinated. Today, only fifty-four percent of Australians sixteen years and older have been fully vaccinated, according to the Australian Department of Health; while seventy-seven percent have had at least one dose. The surge of covid cases is causing Australia to close down and stop all their activities.
