Covid-19 Qld: Annastacia Palaszczuk’s subtle swipe at virus-riddled states

Annastacia Palaszczuk has poured fuel on the border battle, once more defending her situation to retain Queensland’s borders shut to Covid-riddled states until finally it is “safe to do so”.

Addressing the media on Friday, the Queensland Premier would not name a date for reopening but indicated it would probably be following the upcoming conference of countrywide cupboard in November.

“We will open up when it is harmless to do so,” she declared.

“What we are searching at now – we’re on the lookout very closely at what is occurring in NSW and Victoria and I take note there was an easing of limitations in NSW. Their vaccination charges are likely up quite steadily, which is terrific.

“They’ve had a large outbreak, so individuals have long gone out and bought vaccinated.

“But very about, 1800 instances, I imagine from memory, in Victoria right now. If you believe about that, we have experienced just around 2000 scenarios during the complete pandemic, so we really want to see the vaccination charges (maximize) right across the region.”
