John Barilaro has admitted that authorities do not know “what works and what does not work” regarding the strict lockdown measures found across Sydney – the annoying breakfast host Karl Stefanovic.
“One of the things we continue to say is that it is difficult to quantify what works and what does not work,” he said Thursday morning.
“And the reality is, even though we continue to see an increase in numbers, these numbers are not accelerating in the hundreds and hundreds.
“In a way, the restrictions work, but of course more needs to be done, and therefore yesterday there were a number of changes in relation to being able to move out of your local government area.”
Sir. Stefanovic seemed outraged at the shooting of the bomb.
“I’m sorry to give this to you, but I think you just said you do not know what works and what does not work. Is that what you said? Stefanovic asked.
“Yes, look, there is no playbook, Karl. There is no rulebook, ”the deputy premier replied, before claiming that reducing mobility is the key to success.
“The reality is to be able to say that I know how to get this under control, or that the government knows how to get this completely under control … still testing the government and its resources.”
Sir. Barilaro was then questioned as to why NSW residents should have “any level” of trust in the NSW government.
“If you do not know what works, how can they (the people of NSW) have any level of confidence in when they will come out of the lockdown?” Stefanovic asked.
“Well, Karl, over the last 18 months we have managed a number of outbreaks. The Delta strain really challenges us because it is transmissible and contagious, ”said Mr. Barilaro fired back.
“We bring all the experience from the last 18 months into place (and) advice from health, and we will continue to throw more on this.
“I can assure the public that they must have confidence because of (what) we have done in the past. But we will not pretend that we have all the answers because we do not have them. ”
NSW registered 177 new cases of Covid-19 on Wednesday, marking the worst day since the latest outbreak began on June 16.
Inability to reduce case numbers has forced the state government to extend the lock for another four weeks.
