Lisa Wilkinson came under fresh criticism in New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian after the state recorded 124 new cases of Covid-19, the highest in the current outbreak even though Sydney has been on lockdown for a month.
talking on The project From Sydney where she was also on lockdown, Wilkinson told her co-hosts that Ms Berejiklian now “regrets the mockery of (Victorian Prime Minister) Dan Andrews and how he handled matters”.
She also speculated that Mrs. Berejiklian had “other masters” to whom she obeyed and who were preventing her from making the lockdown even stricter.
It looks like NSW is on Covid Groundhog Day. Over the past month, it happened It recorded several days of cases falling less than 100 times before doubling to triple numbers again.
The state appears unable to reduce the number of people present in the community when, most likely unknowingly, they were infectious.
Cases are now leaking from the epicenter in Fairfield in the southwest of the city into surrounding local government areas.
Ms Berejiklian warned that the worst was yet to come, and that “case numbers will continue to rise”.
She urged people to avoid any unnecessary contact with other people, even family members.
“It’s cruel how contagious it is. It’s spreading like we’ve never seen it before.”
But with all that in mind, and that Delta’s dangers were known, the question kept asking about the prime minister as to why the state hadn’t shut down early.
Wilkinson’s Hate at Berejiklian
On The project On Thursday, Wilkinson went to the town of Berejiklian.
“Gladys has been telling us for days that all the green shoots are there, but we watched her wither on the vine today with the expectation that things were only going to get worse,” she told hosts Carrie Bickmore and Peter Hillyar.
“I wonder if she regrets being insulted by Dan Andrews and how he handled things.
“In NSW we’re looking at Victoria and how quickly you shut down the numbers and how tight the numbers are and thinking that’s what we should have done.”
Bickmore said that The Victorians who are in solitude five – Unlike the second lockdown in Greater Sydney – they are now accustomed to ‘doing the right thing’.
She cited Victorian authorities who visited 436 homes to check people’s isolation, only to find them all at home abiding by the rules.
“That’s so cool. That everyone goes, ‘I’m going to do what I have to do.'”
“Other Masters” by Berejiklian
Later on the programme, Wilkinson was back in NSW saying “the numbers were going in the wrong direction”.
The flight attendant stated that she “didn’t understand” why the state was established The government wasn’t setting stricter rules He hinted that there may be political reasons for this.
(Mrs. Berejiklian) says she follows the health advice; a lot of people think that if that’s the health advice she’s been following from the start, then either the health advice is flawed or she’s got other masters we don’t know.
“Because there are a lot of people who would like to see some of these rules prevail so we can hit this thing on the head and go down to zero (cases) that keep saying it’s their target.”
The Lockdown rules tightened in Greater Sydney Similar to those in other states in that there are only a limited number of reasons to leave the house, work should be done from home where possible, schools are closed and all ‘important’ stores are closed.
Where it differs is that there is no Melbourne-style curfew, the maximum distance is 10km instead of five or even 2.5km as in South Australia, masks are not required outdoors except in crowded areas and equipment shops and offices are allowed. To remain open as well as supermarkets, pharmacies, bottle stores and banks for roaming customers.
New South Wales has actually been stricter than other states in some areas including building site closures.
