Annastacia Palaszczuk has poured fuel on the border struggle, all over again defending her position to hold Queensland’s borders shut to Covid-riddled states until finally it is “safe to do so”.
Addressing the media on Friday, the Queensland Leading would not title a day for reopening but indicated it would likely be immediately after the up coming meeting of nationwide cabinet in November.
“We will open when it is safe to do so,” she declared.
“What we’re hunting at now – we’re searching extremely carefully at what is occurring in NSW and Victoria and I observe there was an easing of constraints in NSW. Their vaccination premiums are likely up pretty steadily, which is wonderful.
“They’ve had a massive outbreak, so men and women have long gone out and obtained vaccinated.
“But pretty concerning, 1800 situations, I assume from memory, in Victoria today. If you believe about that, we have experienced just above 2000 conditions during the entire pandemic, so we definitely want to see the vaccination costs (increase) right across the country.”
