LNP Senator Matt Canavan pushes back against lockdowns
LNP Senator Matt Canavan is questioning why lockdowns are still being used as the primary measure to control COVID-19 in Australia.
Sydney is entering its fourth week of lockdown, with daily cases still above 100.
Mr Canavan told Ben Fordham he supported lockdowns last year.
“We have a situation now where almost all residents of aged care are vaccinated, a large portion of older Australians have one dose, we aren’t seeing the same fatality rates overseas with this Delta variant … so why are we locking down now?
“We just can’t keep doing this.”
