In his opinion piece published by news.com.au
日曜日に, Morrison said he recognized the
” that the strict coronavirus prevention measures had inflicted on Australian citizens and businesses
, but said it was
“darkest before the dawn.
“(The lockdowns) are sadly necessary for now, and we will keep providing health and income support to get people through, but they won’t be necessary for too much longer,” 彼は言った.
Morrison said the Australian government intended to shift its focus from reducing case numbers to examining how many people were getting seriously ill from Covid-19 and requiring hospitalization.
“結局, this is how we manage all other infectious diseases,” the Australian leader said, adding the country’s public health system was strong enough now to cope with an increase in coronavirus cases.
While Morrison didn’t give a strict timeline of when the new strategy would be implemented, he said once Australia reached its national vaccination targets of 70% and 80%t “we can start claiming back what Covid has been taking away from us.”
“This is what living with Covid is all about. The case numbers will likely rise when we soon begin to open up. That is inevitable,” 彼は言った.
Morrison’s approach stands in stark contrast to neighboring New Zealand
. 8月に 12, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced a plan to tentatively re-open to vaccinated travelers from low-risk countries from early
2022 but said she did not want to see large outbreaks of the virus inside New Zealand
“Principle number one will remain … maintaining our elimination strategy to stamp out the virus, so we can maintain our hard won gains and keep our options open,” 彼女はその時に言った.
