Premier Gladys Berejiklian says she is “happy to be lectured by other state premiers” as New South Wales moves to open up after an extended COVID-19 lockdown.

“I remember being criticised by a whole range of people when Dr Chant and myself in New South Wales said the vaccine was our key to getting out of this,” Ms Berejiklian told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

Ms Berejiklian said it was “pretty obvious” to her and her team early on that lockdowns were “not going to get us out of this situation”.

“All of us are going to have to come to terms with this – New South Wales as the largest state, the most densely populated state, the gateway to Australia through Sydney airport – it’s not a surprise that we were the first ones to have to confront this,” she said.

“The lockdown has allowed us to confront the inevitability that we have to live with this disease, and what is the best way of doing that.”
