Live updates from Covid Australia: Victoria reports four cases, vaccine rollout will be ‘stepped up’ and likely mandatory for older healthcare workers | Australia News
I would say today we have a situation with three quarters of a million doses delivered to date, more than double what we were seeing six months ago, doses running at over a million every 10 days and it continues to expand and compared to comparable countries, I mean, when you look at countries comparable to Australia’s Covid experience, like New Zealand, in particular, I think that’s is a very good comparison to make but there are others and when you look at those countries where there has been no prevalence of community transmission facing these challenges, you said that the vaccination rates are a lot lower.
I would not agree with your summary and I would simply say that the task ahead is still great and I welcome General Furini to come and take on this role which will take us to the next phase.
This addresses the challenges and issues and ensures that we can continue to strengthen ourselves as the deployment accelerates. That’s what’s happening and we’ll use all resources, private, public, generalist, across the country, to get the job done and that’s what I’m focusing on.
I just do the job. Work with states and territories to secure the position. This is what matters to Australians *, get it delivered, put it on the ground, increase the point of presence and bring in as many parts of the community as possible.
