Going Viral: Episode 161


Going Viral: Is NSW planning to get out of lockdown too early?


In this episode:


– We are a nation divided as there isn’t a uniform message and strategy that is accepted by all states. We need such an agreement in Australia and the leadership must come from Canberra with advice from experts
– It is vital we continue with social distancing and personal protection restrictions when we intermingle even after we achieve the 80% two jab target
– We need to vaccinate children and to protect the community
– If we do not tame this spread of COVID, we will have a hospital crisis
– Australians are sub-optimally immunised as we adopted a shortened period between first and second shots as such, we will need booster doses but raises the issue of vaccine equity
