Treasurer urges premiers toward ‘future without lockdowns’

Article image for Treasurer urges premiers toward ‘future without lockdowns’

Treasurer Josh Frydenberg is echoing the Prime Minister’s calls for the premiers to uphold the national plan out of lockdowns.

The Queensland and Western Australian premiers have indicated they would keep borders closed and continue to consider lockdowns even once 80 per cent of eligible Australians are vaccinated.

Treasurer Josh Frydenberg told Neil Breen all states and territories “need to stick to the plan” because COVID cannot be eliminated.

“We need to give, as you say, the small businesses across Australia, and indeed across Queensland, hope.

“They need to know there is a future without lockdowns and we should not give them lockdowns for one day longer than they are absolutely necessary.”
