Friday’s national cabinet wasn’t a step forward, it was but a stark illustration of the problems in our vaccination roll-out. The crumbling confidence in the national cabinet process to achieve unified purpose and the gaslighting of our medical experts doesn’t help. Nor does the spectacular lack of transparency about what vaccine supplies we’ve either got coming on stream, or what the government is doing about accelerating it in any way possible. Nor does the fact no one wants to say how much of the population needs to be vaccinated before we can open up. The “magic numbers” we need are the ones about vaccine supply.
