PM SCO MO has been promising to open up with a similar approach to that of the UK once he gets 70% vaccination rates. NSW PremierI'm sceptical about this; i live in Sydney and we're currently in major massive COVID lockdown; in fact 2 of our major ciites- Sydney and Melbourne are in COVID lockdown with perhaps the third- Brisbane, on the verge of a lockdown as well, and along with it, kids arne't even allowed to go back to schools, they're still doing at home learning.
And amidst all of this, Australia is going to open up its borders to allow in foreign students to uni?
I doubt it.
Secondly, this sounds like the type of news that australian media would promote since the government is staring at the prospect of recession since the only thing underpinning the economy is iron ore and real estate prices and without Chinese students, migrants, visitors and tourists and investment, all of that is in jeopardy.
