Ppl criticising $60b JobKeeper error should also scrutinise the health assumptions & medical advice relied on by Treasury, including that 50,000-150,000 could die, ICU daily peak demand hit 5000 & states shutting down the economy for 6 months

The $60b JobKeeper error was caused by extremely gloomy medical forecasts on the virus and state premiers rushing to shut down economy for 6 month “hibernation”

Treasury overestimated the take-up of JobKeeper because the medical advice upon which it was based on and the need for prolonged business shutdowns turned out to be massively pessimistic.

$60b JobKeeper costing error is mainly due to virus cases falling & economy not quite as bad as feared as at dire outlook at March.Take up has been lower than thought. ATO admin error was trigger to revise Treasury forecasts, not the cause of undershoot
