Vaccination targets, less lockdowns and reopening borders – the four phase plan explained | ABC News

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Vaccination targets, less lockdowns and reopening borders – the four phase plan explained | ABC News” – below is their description.

National Cabinet has agreed to new vaccination targets, which will dictate the easing of restrictions and the reopening of the nation’s economy.

70 per cent of the eligible population will need to have received both doses of a coronavirus vaccine, before the nation moves to the next stage of easing restrictions.

Lockdowns will become “less likely” after that target is hit, but international border caps will remain in place.

Eliza Harvey and Casey Briggs take a closer look.
