Australia led the world in COVID infections this week and the experts say ‘it’s not over’

This week Australia became a world leader.

But it wasn’t for a feat of engineering or some sort of sporting achievement — it was an unwelcome title.

According to global databases, Australia led the world in per-capita COVID infections (if you ignore the tiny islands of Montserrat, Anguilla and The Falklands).

On Friday, 54,591 cases were reported across Australia, on the back of two consecutive days of about 58,000 cases, with Western Australia bracing for new infection records.

Saturday’s numbers moved the official seven-day average to more than 48,000 daily cases, putting Australia behind only Germany and the US in total new daily cases recorded.
