    This country's still being reactive in our response to the Covid-19 pandemic

    This country's still being reactive in our response to the Covid-19 pandemic


    Everyone vaccinated against Covid-19 is logged in the Covid Immunisation Register - but health officials say they don't capture the vaccination status of those entering the country.

    He says here we are still behaving reactively, and waiting until the wheels fall off the wagon before we check the wheel nuts.
