New South Wales records 1262 new local COVID-19 cases, seven deathsSpeaking during the last live daily health update, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said that 78 per cent of over 16-year-olds now had at least one dose of a vaccine. 9News My body is mine to do with as I wish. If i choose not to vax it is none of your business. Open when the vulnerable and those who want have had their vax, I have made my choice Having abandoned her role as leader of the people in their hour of need, Berejiklian has inspired the people of the state to abandon their commitment to the Covid regulations.

Victoria records 473 new local COVID-19 cases as Delta outbreak worsensSo far, 202 of the new cases identified overnight have been linked to known outbreaks. DanielAndrewsMP really is a failure as a premier, a man and a human. Plausible scenario: Vic cases exceed NSW before Dan Andrews annouces re-opening plan. He admits being outwitted by Gladys B and at the 11th hour, just before NSW freedom day he resigns and moves to Sydney.

Albeit with a -ve PCR test and into home quarantine? It’s ridiculous to keep Victorians in NSW now.
