Sumary of PM shares frustration of those in lockdown:

  • Daniel McCulloch and Matt CoughlanAAPCamera IconThe federal government will provide income support for South Australians under COVID restrictions.
  • But the prime minister continues to deny the bungled vaccine rollout is responsible for the widespread restrictions.
  • “The prime minister insisted total urgency was being applied to the vaccine rollout, despite earlier arguing the national program was “not a race”.
  • “We’ve had our problems but we’re getting over them,” the prime minister said.
  • Coronavirus outbreaks have plunged more than half of Australia into lockdown, sparking calls for more federal support.
  • The Morrison government is resisting pressure to reinstate JobKeeper wage subsidies with at least 13.5 million people under heavy restrictions across NSW, Victoria and South Australia.

  • “JobKeeper had its problems but it also had very important features which the government has stupidly junked,” he said.
