A Sydney intensive care specialist says Delta is like a wave, and you want to decrease the size of it.  

Mark Nicholls told Mike Hosking the way to reduce the number of people in the wave is to vaccinate, and to get people to follow public health rules. 

"By decreasing the wave, decreasing the size of it. You don't have a system where you have too many patients coming to hospital, and too many to meet the ICU capacity that you have."
