‘Light at the end of the tunnel’ to come for NSW residents: Barilaro

Deputy Premier John Barilaro says people in NSW will see “that light at the end of the tunnel” when the government releases the roadmap for the months ahead.

Mr Barilaro said the roadmap would be released as a result of the state having reached the six million jabs mark.

The original forecast for NSW reaching a 70 per cent vaccination rate across the eligible population was the end of October, and the middle of November for 80 per cent.

“The reality is, we might be ahead of it,” Mr Barilaro said.

“I think we’ll actually get there in the October, early November period … I expect that to be freedom.”
