Police out in force to deter Sydney lockdown protesters

Police in Sydney have launched a highly visible and mobile operation today to disrupt any COVID-19 protests and prevent mass gatherings.

Officers are warning protesters planning to demonstrate against restrictions in Sydney this weekend to stay at home.

New South Wales Police Minister David Elliott this week said any mass protests would be a major public health risk and police would take firm action to prevent gatherings.

“There is no doubt that these protests are a risk to public health – for the community, for police as well as for the individual health of the protesters themselves,” Mr Elliott said.

“We’ve seen past protesters end up contracting COVID-19, so anyone who is still considering protesting needs take a good hard look at themselves.”

NSW Police Deputy Commissioner Mal Lanyon, said today’s operation would mirror previous operations, which he said had been successful in preventing protest activity.

“We have put in place an extremely mobile police operation with significant resources, to respond to whatever situation we are faced with.”

Meanwhile, the first doses of the mRNA vaccine Moderna have arrived in Australia.

The precious cargo came into the country last night on an Emirates flight, which landed at Sydney Airport.

The second shipment of the vaccine is expected to land on our shores in the coming days.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) first gave provisional approval for the use of Moderna in Australia last month, making it our third COVID-19 vaccine, alongside AstraZeneca and Pfizer.

Health Minister Greg Hunt said yesterday that over 1800 pharmacies will start distributing Moderna jabs next week, once testing by the medical safety body is complete.
