So-called recovery roadmap is a ‘COVID only plan’ with no other considerations Recovery description:
Sky News host Peta Credlin says “self-serving deception” is to be expected from Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews who’s using the crisis for political ends.
“Right now, we’ve got a government in Victoria that’s trying to prolong this COVID crisis to mask its very real responsibility for this second wave outbreak,” Ms Credlin said.
Mr Andrews announced on Sunday tentative dates for the easing of restrictions, should new case numbers remain low.
The Melbourne metropolitan area will continue with its stage four lockdowns until at least September 28.
Ms Credlin said the modelling the premier used as the whole basis of the lockdowns is “solely modelling” about the impact of the virus on the community.
“Managing COVID isn’t the only challenge the government has, it’s also to carry the economy and businesses, and families through this pandemic; financially and emotionally,” she said.
“This is a COVID only plan. It is not wholistic, it’s not strategic, it’s not the roadmap to recovery promised weeks ago.
“Again Andrews pleads that he had no choice. That’s a lie. Every leader has choices and if he looks north to Sydney, Andrews will see a model that has prioritised contact tracing over the blame-game.
“He has choices, but instead, he’s hoping Victorians will eventually forget what caused this second wave in the first place.”
