Thirty million doses of COVID vaccine will have been administered to Aussies by the end of the week, PM Scott Morrison said yesterday. With significant progress on the vaccination front, he praised Aussies and said NSW’s emergence from lockdown should be “a sign of hope” to the rest of the country. As restrictions ease and the risk of hospitalisations fall as more people get vaccinated, he warned COVID-avoiding states and territories to “prepare” their health systems for the Delta strain. This is aimed at Queensland’s Olympics Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk’s call for more hospital funding to deal with the cases that will result from open borders. “We’re not going to respond to shakedowns in a pandemic,” Morrison said in response.
