Doherty modelling a ‘slap down’ of Berejiklian’s vaccination strategy

The Doherty Institute’s modelling underpinning National Cabinet’s four-stage roadmap out of COVID-19 was a “slap down” of the NSW government’s vaccination strategy out of lockdown, says The Australian’s health editor Natasha Robinson.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian revealed on Tuesday 50 per cent of the state’s residents would need to be vaccinated if Greater Sydney was to exit lockdown by the end of the month.

“One of the most interesting take outs was this slap down of the NSW strategy,” Ms Robinson told Sky News Australia.

“What the Doherty modelling actually said was that, at that level of vaccination coverage, you would still have exponential outbreaks so I think that really puts into question this NSW strategy.

“Now we’re really relying on the lockdown in NSW to really reduce the numbers, which it doesn’t really appear to be doing at this stage so it’s a really difficult dilemma for that state.”
