‘Don’t overreact’: Bipartisan support for a lockdown-free 2022
In 2022 both major parties are adamant the nation can’t return to the same approach to COVID of the last two years.
Labor MP Joel Fitzgibbon told Deborah Knight that despite a spike in cases and the rise of the Omicron variant, the government should not review the roadmap.
“We have to hold our nerve … you cannot keep locking down people and the economy forever.”
Industry, Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister Angus Taylor echoed his sentiment.
“It’s important we don’t overreact, I agree with Joel on this.
“The economic impacts of that are just too great.”
