PM denies vaccine rollout tied to lockdown


Scott Morrison has refused to accept the bungled vaccine rollout is fuelling coronaviru­s lockdowns sweeping Australia. Just 14 per cent of the population is fully vaccinated. The prime minister said the nature of coronaviru­s meant some problems were out of the government’s control. NSW recorded 110 new cases yesterday with at least 60 spending time in the community while infectious. Victoria had 22 new local cases, while a new infection has been reported in South Australia, taking Adelaide’s cluster to six.
