Yes, we do have to learn to ensure that we are reducing the downside and the impact and mortality, the horrible mortality that is associated with its transmission, that involves the vaccine rollout, that involves the quarantine arrangement, and that involves a clear communication for a plan about what it looks like moving forward and I listened closely to an interview that Jane Halton gave where she made it clear that in her view, we could be doing this on an annual basis. So a clear conversation with the Australian people about what this looks like moving forward. We’re not having that at the moment.
Who would have thought?
