COMPARE Covid-19 to rabies, and the way proper quarantine is applied: six months in controlled isolation.

Australia has implemented this control since the start of the pandemic, and even now only Australians are allowed entry, but they still have a 14 day government-controlled quarantine.

Residents cannot travel out of their home state.

Result? They have had just over 100deaths and less than 10,000 infections. New cases are now nearly nil.

That is how quarantine should be implemented.
