Businesses urged to help vaccinate employees to spare Victoria from lockdowns
Victoria has recorded four new coronavirus cases over the past 24 hours including two at an aged care facility with businesses being urged to help vaccinate 70 per cent of their employees to spare the state from future lockdowns. Victoria’s Acting Premier James Merlino said the state was living in a “different environment” with the new variant compared to what it was managing last year. “There’s a reason why public health is so concerned about the Delta variant,” he said. “It is much, much more infection than what we were dealing with last year.” Mr Merlino’s remarks came after he was quizzed about a public roadmap to reopening akin to Victoria in 2020.
