A university researcher believes the country is not divided as restrictions begin to ease. 

Vaccine passes will be scrapped from April 5, with vaccine mandates being removed for a number of workforces. 

Gathering limit changes will also come into effect at midnight tomorrow. 

Victoria University Institute for Governance and Policy Studies senior associate Max Rashbrooke told Mike Hosking he doubts we're irretrievably split down the middle. 

He says it's not like things were during the Springbok tour. 

Rashbrooke says the winding back of the passes will allow people to get on with life and allow wounds to heal.
