Victorian Premier Dan Andrews said way back last year that lockdowns would keep happening “until everyone was vaccinated”, but changed his tune recently to “until everyone has had the opportunity to get vaccinated”, and this is what all these premiers are saying now, but federal Health Department Secretary Brendan Murphy says no, the Ganges River, or Indian variant, what some call Delta, is so bad that it doesn’t matter how many people are vaccinated (because experience in the most vaxxed countries (Israel, England) show that the vaccines basically don’t work), and lockdowns will keep happening:
Health Department Secretary Brendan Murphy has warned that half the Australian population could be stuck in lockdown even if current vaccination rates were higher, reigniting business concerns about whether improved vaccine take-up can provide a pathway out of restrictions.
Professor Murphy’s assessment was endorsed by Scott Morrison as “fact” on Friday, with the Prime Minister saying the statement reflected the “nature of the Delta variant” and the “lived experience of countries all around the world who do have higher rates of vaccination”.
So we will have to keep listening to, for example, the South Australian Chief Health Officer Nicola Spurrier, who has one of the most annoying kinds of female Australian accent imaginable and sounds like she should be baking cakes for Country Women’s Association functions, telling us to DUCK THE VIRUS LADEN FOOTBALL:

If people spent time in a restaurant where an infected person was they’re going to track them down, from CCTV and bank records:

And when they’ve tracked them down, they forcibly remove them from their homes and into ‘medi-hotels’.
And from NSW, avoid talking to people:

It’s never going to end, ‘vaccine‘ or not, and it’s probably going to get progressively worse, unless (Sydney):
