Yes, I spent several hours the last couple days reading up on her and her work. Including another one of her responses from interview linked above:
Alastair: So you think that the New Zealand approach, eradicating the virus, is both functionally silly and also immoral?
Well, I don’t know whether I’d go so far as to say it’s immoral. It seems to be very short-sighted, how can it possibly keep the virus out?
I think the smugness, the self-congratulation with which it’s presented is misplaced. The self-righteous attitude is completely ridiculous. If it turns out that the rest of the world, through herd immunity or vaccination, manages to reduce the risk of infection, then what New Zealand will have done would be tantamount to not vaccinating your own child. Just waiting for everyone else to vaccinate their children and then go “ok it’s all safe now”.
You already saw the last part, but there’s the whole thing in context for you.
On Victoria, it’s an example of what she talks about when stringent lockdowns happen before there has been wide spread. If the virus hasn’t been eliminated, it starts to spread once people again start interacting. In principle, that is.
