Berejiklian ‘leading the way’ out of COVID-19: Chris Kenny


NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian is “leading the way” out of COVID-19 and the rest of Australia will follow eventually, according to Sky News host Chris Kenny.

“The virus is not going away, COVID zero is a harmful fantasy,” he said.

“Thankfully NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian understands this, and she is moving to open up, however tentatively, even as cases are escalating”.

New South Wales announced over 1000 cases on Thursday, but the Premier also announced new freedoms for people who have been fully vaccinated.

According to Mr Kenny, while the announcement is welcome it is “hardly returning any liberties”.

“The emphasis is still all wrong,” he said.

“It is about governments giving us gifts and rewards for good behaviour rather than understanding it’s up to them to justify why they are withholding any of our basic rights.”
