Australia Covid live news: NSW gives update; Victoria records 190 new cases; Moderna provisionally approved for those 12-17 | Australia news
We have purposefully and actively said we support the national plan. But I think it is worth making the point that getting to 80% and opening the country up means different things in different parts of the country. So you know, when we get to 80% here in Sydney, and in Melbourne, it means we get our life back.
It means we can step off the driveway after 9pm at night. But it is a fact that when you get to 80%, in Hobart, or Brisbane, or Perth or Adelaide, they get Covid. They have been pretty lucky so far. They are not in lockdown, they can have a beer at the pub, they can do things we can’t.
Now, that’s not an argument for keeping borders closed but what it means is you have to do everything we can to speed up vaccination rates and more vaccine is going to help with that.
