NSW is likely to reach its 80 percent double-dose vaccination target “over the weekend,” said Prime Minister Dominic Perrottet, which means more restrictions will be eased on Monday.
The Cabinet is meeting today to discuss possible changes to the roadmap.
The pressure on whether regional travel should be opened as planned, Perrottet said journalists should be more positive.
“Let’s generally have a perspective. We are doing incredibly well as a state. We have many good things to be proud of, to be happy about, to be optimistic about, ”he said.
“Let us stop worrying. Let’s focus on the hope and optimism that NSW people are feeling right now.
“Enjoy the summer, go out and use if you can, and help your neighbors help your businesses, because that’s what gets us through.”
The Prime Minister removed the resignation of Holsworthy MP Melanie Gibbons, which triggers a fourth election in fourteen days and could push the government further in the minority after Gladys Berejiklian, Andrew Constance and John Barilaro also stopped.
“Parliament is full of individuals and individuals make their own decisions. I know I have a very strong team, ”he said.
Perrottet also said he was “not concerned” that his deputy, Stuart Ayres, was summoned as a witness to the Independent Commission against Corruption’s Investigation into Ms Berejiklian.
