Nation’s treasurer warns Australia can’t turn back as Sydney declares freedom day

Published

Five million Australians who live in the greater Sydney region will no longer be subject to harsh stay-at-home orders, as the city emerges from lockdown on Monday

Dubbed Freedom Day, Sydneysiders who are double vaxxed will be able to go to cafes, restaurants and bars, whilst the caps on numbers at weddings and funerals are also increased.

Meanwhile, 10 fully vaccinated visitors will be allowed to gather inside a private home and up to 30 people can gather outdoors.

This all comes as Australia’s Treasurer Josh Frydenberg warns there must be no turning back… and the nation’s focus must shift away from lockdowns and towards vaccine take-up.

Freudenberg believes Australia will recover from the economic pandemic slump… and Sydney’s freedom day will provide a much-needed financial boost.

Frydenberg says “with vaccination rates rapidly climbing around the country, we need to make lockdowns a thing of the past and give people their freedoms back, re-engage with the world and allow the economy to reopen safely”.

This follows data that suggests the cost of the most recent lockdown in New South Wales was $950 million a week, with $7billion paid by the commonwealth in Covid disaster payments.

With concerns, the technology used to keep track on those who are fully vaccinated isn’t ready yet.
