Aussie man slams Americans over their views on Australia’s Covid situation – and explains how much the government takes care of you and your family if you get Covid
- Popular TikTok user called out US residents for criticising Australia’s Covid focus
- Social media influencer then pointed out the efficient government approach
- During the pandemic, America has recorded a staggering 709,000 plus deaths
- Figures in stark contrast to Australia, with just under 1400 deaths since 2020
A proud Australian man has fired up at US residents who criticised the handling of the pandemic down under.
His clip, which has already had a staggering 700,000 views, starts by Eessa posing the question to Americans ‘do you guys really think we want to live in your country?’

Australia’s thorough approach to tackling the pandemic has seen just under 1400 deaths since 2020 – as opposed to at least 709,000 residents dying in America
‘This country (Australia) is that good that when you have Covid you can test your heart and breathing for free… and at home.’
Eessa said the instructions for the home tests were also available in multiple languages, including Arabic, which his mother is fluent in.
The home test is in addition to a nurse checking on people’s well-being as they isolate at home.
To conclude his argument, the TikTok influencer then asked – ‘why the f*** would anyone want to live in America’.
He signed off by mocking the US for ‘flexing their country’ before labelling America the ‘wish version of the real Gucci.’
During the global pandemic, the US has recorded at least 709,000 deaths from Covid and over 44 million positive cases.
The damning figures are in stark contrast to Australia, with 1378 deaths and close to 118,000 positive cases.
Much of Australia has lived relatively free for the past 18 months, with just NSW and Victoria enduring long stints of lockdown.
NSW is now just days away from Freedom Day, which will see hairdressers, cafes, restaurants and pubs re-open from Monday, October 11 for those who are fully vaccinated.
Other changes will see up to 10 residents allowed to gather inside homes across the state, and as many as 100 permitted to attend weddings and funerals.
Indoor pools will also be open for swimming lessons, training and rehabilitation activities.
And when the 80 per cent vaccination rate is achieved, expected to be in late October, restrictions will ease even further.
Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 12 will now return to school on Monday October 18 across NSW, with students in all year groups back on-site by October 25
