Could New Zealand adopt New South Wales' Covid-19 roadmap? 

The Australian state is fast tracking new freedoms for fully vaccinated residents from Monday.  

It includes removing limit on house gatherings, opening sports stadiums and cinemas, and even allowing dancing in nightclubs.  

The unvaccinated people must wait until December 15, or until the state reaches a 95-percent vax rate.  

Auckland University Emeritus Professor of Medicine Des Gorman, says it's good plan, that could work here. 

“People need encouragement, people need some sort of reward and the best way to reward people is for behaviour that actually keeps them safe.”
