Sydney – After recent Qantas recent announcements we can finally hear authoritative representatives speaking about ease of restrictions and opening of the international borders. The Government of New South Wales confirms to be the State more inclined to restore life as it used to be before the pandemic. Definitively important words the ones pronounced by the Premier Gladys Berejiklian this morning in relation to the next changes in New South Wales.
For what concerns the internal dimension, the Premier has set a date for the removal of restrictions: 18th October 2021. This date is forecasted on vaccination rates: around this day 70% of the NSW population is expected to be fully vaccinated.
For what concerns international borders, no date has been set but a target of vaccination rate is identified: 80% would be needed to re-open the international Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport. This would only be 10% more than the 70% identified to restore normal life internally. Gladys Berejiklian appeared to be determined to follow this line in independently from the other Premiers. Important to remember that despite the NSW Government intentions, international borders are controlled by the Federal Government and a last word will be left to Morrison.
