Australia, Dr Chris, Christie Evans discussed on Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk


There will <Speech_Male> be a surgeon cases <Speech_Male> in australia <Speech_Male> if there is any <Speech_Male> kind of loosening <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> even if people are vaccinated <Speech_Male> we know that <Speech_Male> vaccine uptake varies. <Speech_Male> We know that vaccine <Speech_Male> uptake geographically <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> socially <Speech_Male> we also know there <Speech_Male> are some harder to reach <Speech_Male> communities across <Speech_Male> australia. Who <Speech_Male> may or may not <Speech_Male> be so supportive <Speech_Male> of these sorts of measures <Speech_Male> and if <Speech_Male> they're allowed to <Speech_Male> be infected <Speech_Male> or see big outbreaks <Speech_Male> in those groups. <Speech_Male> It could be a disaster <Speech_Male> for them. And <Speech_Male> so all of these things. We <Speech_Male> prang on the minds <Speech_Male> of both the population. <Speech_Male> Generally <Speech_Male> and also policymakers. <Speech_Male> So <Speech_Male> it's all going to be about probably <Speech_Male> a managed <Speech_Male> retreat. I would say <Speech_Male> stepping back <Speech_Male> gently <Speech_Male> from these measures. Having <Speech_Male> put in place the <Speech_Male> maximum number of <Speech_Male> safeguards to keep <Speech_Male> everyone as safe <Speech_Male> as possible <Speech_Male> but having explained <Speech_Male> to people there <Speech_Male> will be some cases. <Speech_Male> We've done our best to minimize <Speech_Male> them. But <Speech_Male> that's the price we <Speech_Male> have to pay ultimately <Speech_Male> as a country in order to <Speech_Male> restore everyone's <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> normality. <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> Dr chris. <Speech_Male> smith and professor <Speech_Male> mark is.
