The 'vaccinated economy' is set to last until 2022

Here is the latest COVID19 vaccination update.

Unvaccinated Victorians will be barred from places including bookstores, pubs, and sporting events until at least 2023, while similar restrictions in NSW will be lifted in December.

Melbourne will transition from the world’s most restricted city to nearly unrestricted status next month, but Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has warned that a greatly expanded “vaccinated economy” will remain in place until 2022.

Victoria is on track to reach an 80 percent vaccination rate for those aged 16 and older on Friday, a week ahead of schedule, and a 90 percent immunization rate (for those aged 12 and older) by November 24.

On Sunday, the state reported 1,935 new cases and 11 new deaths. Although the number of people in hospitals (787, up from 770 on Saturday), intensive care (146, compared to 144 on Saturday), and on a ventilator (93, 90 on Saturday) continues to rise, the state is now at 73 percent full vaccination for those aged 16 and older (increasing at a rate of about a percentage point per day).

In the state, there are now 24,993 active cases.

Travel will be permitted throughout the state beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, and all retail enterprises will reopen, subject to density regulations. Outside, masks will no longer be required, and all children will return to full-time classroom learning.

Andrews also outlined the state’s goals once it had reached a vaccination rate of 90%. No activity would be restricted, and masks would only be used in the most dangerous situations. He predicted that the opening day of the 2021 Boxing Day Test would establish a new record for an Australian crowd since the pandemic began, and that those who had been vaccinated would be able to enjoy Christmas without limitation.

“With the Victorian community, we have established a basic understanding.” We requested that you be immunized. “You did it in record speed and in record numbers,” Andrews remarked.

“That means we have to open the area up and establish a set of rules, settings, and procedures that are as light-handed as possible, the simplest, most simply understood, and as close to normal life as feasible.

“That is what we promised, and that is exactly what we will deliver.”

Unlike New South Wales, where unvaccinated people will have nearly the same freedoms as vaccinated people starting in December, Andrews expects to keep restrictions on unvaccinated people’s activities throughout next year.

On Sunday, Andrews made it plain that non-essential shopping and events would be vaccination mandatory, thus prohibiting individuals who are not vaccinated from attending or working in those locations. Mandates were already in place in a number of areas, including those critical retail, construction, aged care, and health care.

Unvaccinated people will be barred from attending anything from a bookstore to a tavern to a football event until at least 2023, according to Andrews.

He explained that this transition was partly due to the fact that the unvaccinated remained the health system’s biggest burden. Andrews estimated that 93 percent of the 146 persons in intensive care with Covid-19 were unvaccinated.

Andrews stated that he expects to make a statement soon with his NSW colleague, Dominic Perrottet, on further relaxing of travel restrictions between the two states.

On Sunday, 296 new cases and four deaths were reported in NSW.
The proportion of people aged 16 and up who have received at least one dose has risen to 93 percent, while the proportion of those aged 16 and up who have received full vaccination has risen to 84.4 percent.

The number of individuals in hospital has risen from 469 to 480, although the number of people in intensive care has decreased from 123 to 119.

Perrottet and Stuart Ayres, the NSW tourism minister, announced a fresh campaign to market the state to domestic and international visitors when it reopens on Sunday.

According to Ayres, the effort extends beyond Sydney’s famous opera house and harbour bridge to sell other sections of the state.

“They are breathtakingly lovely.” That is without a doubt the case. “However, this campaign is about going beyond them to be able to say they’ll always be there,” he explained.

Andrews said on Sunday that he hoped the revisions would allow Melbourne residents who have been unable to leave the city since July to enjoy a long weekend to coincide with the Melbourne Cup public holiday on November 2nd.
