Australia Covid live update: NSW reports 1,262 cases, seven deaths at final daily press conference; Victoria records 392 new cases

What we are seeing is, Covid has so effectively sought out vulnerabilities.

That is why it is not about our overall vaccination coverage, it is also about how effectively we have engaged with people who are in challenging circumstances, be they homeless, be they people in social housing, be they the people affected by drug and alcohol and mental health issues, and be they the members of the community living in large households and under difficult circumstances.

It is so critical, and Australia’s healthcare system has been one which has been one of the most equitable in the world, and the challenge for us is to do everything we can to make sure that our vaccine coverage is incredibly high in those groups.
