Australia and New Zealand are lagging most other advanced economies in terms of re-opening; until recently domestic restrictions have been maintained to respond to delta, and restrictions have been lifted in countries with high vaccination rates. However, borders have remained closed. So the initial economic advantage held by Australia and New Zealand, due to their domestic freedoms, is likely to erode over time as other economies open up ahead of Australia and New Zealand.
