COVID-19: “If the whole country were vaccinated, you couldn’t just open the borders”

COVID-19: “If the whole country were vaccinated, you couldn’t just open the borders”

That’s the Australian Health Minister, Greg Hunt, dashing hopes that Australia’s borders will open as soon as the majority of Australians have received their first vaccine jab, as quoted in the SMH.

He just made 36,000 Australians stranded overseas very angry. And tourist operators arn’t very happy either.

Watch as Greg Hunt, or another minister or even our Prime Minister walk this back over the next few days.

‘Scotty from marketing’ – otherwise known as our Prime Minister, Scott Morrisson is very good at distraction, and democratising blame. He has already started the process by calling for twice weekly National Cabinet meetings, so he can shift decision making away from his government, and start blaming state governments – well at least that’s my speculation.

We already know that the deadline of October 2021 for everybody in Australia to have their first jab is shot to pieces with the new advice that under 50’s should not have the AstraZeneca vaccine.

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

Time for Australia to have a clear timetable for re-opening the borders – even if the dates are fuzzy – we need a strategy! I’m happy with a roll-out of bubbles, and then a cautious opening. But we need a plan!

Come on Scotty!
