Rising tennis star tests positive for COVID-19 after Aus Open quarantine whinge

Quarantine exists for a reason. It’s unfortunate that she’s tested positive for COVID-19, but it would have been far worse (for everyone else, but the same for her) if authorities had given in to her complaints and waived the quarantine requirement.

Why did she have to complain? What did she hope to achieve? Everyone knows it’s necessary for a higher purpose than the individual’s own convenience and comfort. In Australia, we might not fully appreciate the seriousness of the pandemic and how it’s affected countries and populations around the world, but you would think these overseas competitors should know better.
