Australia's Omicron epidemic spreads rapidly, global airfare sales plummet

        The latest global epidemic data found that the average daily number of new confirmed cases in Australia has reached 87,815, with 346 infections per 100,000 people.
        Australia is currently the 13th in the world with the rapid spread of the epidemic, and the spread of the epidemic has surpassed that of the United States, the United Kingdom, and South Africa, where Omicron cases first appeared.
        Despite the severe spread of the virus in Australia, Australia's death rate is low. In Australia, there are 0.1 deaths per 100,000 people. By comparison, per 100,000 people, 0.36 in the UK, 0.52 in the US, and 0.29 in South Africa died from the outbreak.
        In addition, because some people in Australia did not report the test results to the authorities after using rapid screening reagents; some people may be unwilling to wait in line to receive the free nucleic acid test provided by the government, and the data about the Australian epidemic may also be biased.
        Two asymptomatic patients with COVID-19 from South Africa arrived in Sydney on 27 November 2021, is the first Omicron case in Australia.
        On the other hand, international air ticket sales drop significantly in late 2021 as countries close their borders due to the spread of the Omicron outbreak. The International Air  Transport Association (IATA) said that international ticket sales fell sharply in late 2021 as governments closed borders and overreacted to the Omicron variant.
        After large-scale lockdown measures in 2020 and early 2021, international air travel recovered slowly and steadily, and then the Omicron variant was discovered at the end of November 2021 and spread rapidly.
