Sydney to Phase Out of Lockdown

Gladys Berejiklian, the premier of New South Wales, Australia, said restrictions in Sydney and other areas of the state still under lockdown would start lifting in October when officials expect 70 percent of residents over the age of 16 to be fully vaccinated.

A double dose has been confirmed now at 60 percent. We are literally just a few weeks away from having that 70 percent double dose, and 12 to 15 year olds, already 40 percent have received their first dose, which is fantastic. Let’s not think about this as a freedom day, but let’s think about this as a stage reopening to getting back to normal. But there’s no doubt that for those of us who are fully vaccinated at the 70 percent double dose, life will feel so much better. Life will feel getting back to normal. And obviously a number of things kicking in at 80 percent, including community sport, regional travel and a whole range of other things. And then on the 1st of December, will be the final stage of reopening where unvaccinated people will be able to participate.
