Sumary of Qld Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk drops big hint over possible Christmas border reopening:
- ”The cryptic message comes after health Minister Yvette D’Ath on Monday said it was the state’s mission to get jabbed “in the next five to six weeks” if it wanted border restrictions to ease.
- But the state government is proud of its record – especially compared to NSW and Victoria – with Queensland not recording a locally acquired case of Covid in eight days after stamping out several worrying clusters.
- The state’s border travel bubble with six northern NSW local government areas was also reinstated on Wednesday.
- But Ms Palaszczuk has flagged concerns over the vulnerability of children who are unable to be vaccinated, and has asked Prime Minister Scott Morrison to increase hospital funding, and announce a plan for the rollout of Covid booster shots before she can open the state back up.
