NSW’s steps to suppress COVID ‘half-baked’, WA Premier says
By Michaela Whitbourn and Hamish Hastie
West Australian Premier Mark McGowan is, predictably, going in hard against NSW at his COVID-19 update.
NSW’s measures to stop the spread of the highly transmissible Delta strain of the virus had been “half-baked” and “it’s not a time for half measures”, he said.
“Vaccinations are not a substitute for a lockdown,” Mr McGowan said.

The NSW Premier called this morning for more vaccines to be directed to coronavirus hotspot areas in Sydney’s south-west and west, amid a warning from the state’s Chief Health Officer that the outbreak in the state was a national emergency.
Mr McGowan said vaccination would help prevent a future outbreak but only a lockdown would “crush and kill” the current outbreak in NSW. He said the Commonwealth understood that lockdowns were the key to suppressing an outbreak.
He said “NSW is not an island; Sydney’s not an island” and the outbreak in the state posed a risk to the whole country. He said some of the state’s rules about exercise “frankly, are inexplicable”.
“I see all these images of people running around outside as though nothing’s happening now, no one’s wearing a mask, all these people are at outdoor gyms lifting weights and mixing with one another,” he said.
“They have an approach where they have some local governments locked down, then across the road they’re not to the same degree. Those sorts of measures are half-baked.”
He suggested NSW needed to tighten all restrictions, from mask-wearing, to locking down the state uniformly, to involving the Defence Force.
“All of these things need to be out in place.”
He said he shared the view of his Victorian counterpart Daniel Andrews that his government would not be sending jabs east.
“We’re not going to hand over vaccines,” he said. “I understand the point of view, I don’t want to be too hard ... and say, ‘were not giving up our vaccines’... but I don’t think that it’s sensible to do that.
“We have a nationally-agreed approach; we just need to roll it out as efficiently and quickly as we possibly can across all states and territories.”
