Hope Covid fight being won

RESTRICTIONS put in place over the past few weeks will be sufficient to “mop up” the remaining strains of community transmission of Covid-19, says Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

However as people were urged to continue to come forward for testing, the Premier also emphasised the need to continue to comply with the State’s Covid-19 restrictions, reminding people in Greater Sydney to limit household guests to five a day and calling on everyone to be honest with health officials and contact tracers.
“There have been situations because people are afraid to tell us everything because they’re worried about getting in trouble or worried about having broken the rules; I assure you that that is not the case,” she said.
Also urging everyone to continue wearing masks, Mayor Khal Asfour said he was incredibly proud of the way “our City, and its people” have responded to the changing NSW Health regulations throughout the year.
“Only together can we stop the spread of this perilous virus,” he said.
While encouraging people to get the vaccine once it becomes available, Ms Berejiklian also reiterated her support for the National Cabinet’s approach in working toward suppression of the virus, and says anyone who thinks the disease will be eradicated, “doesn’t appreciate what the pandemic means”.
“But we’ve signed up to zero community transmission and that is something NSW strongly supports, endorses and works towards,” she said.
