‘More people will die’: Gladys Berejiklian issues a chilling warning ahead of the Easter break as police reveal they will patrol caravan parks, back streets and holiday spots to bust rule breakers
Gladys Berejiklian has warned that relaxing restrictions means more people would die coronavirus.
The New South Wales Premier said she would consider removing restrictions every month if the infection rate continues to slow – but warned of the consequences.
‘When you do lift any of the restrictions, it does mean that more people will be admitted to our hospitals and more people who will succumb to the virus. That’s a fact,’ she said.
Ms Berejiklian said some aspects of lock down could be lifted in just two weeks.

‘If the advice in a couple of weeks is that there might be a couple of aspects that we can tweak to provide relief to our citizens, well then, we’ll take that advice,’ she said.
Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said officers will patrol caravan parks this weekend to make sure no-body is on holiday over Easter.
‘Over the next couple of days, NSW Police will be out on our roads, making sure that people adhere to the orders around the Easter holidays,’ Commissioner Fuller said.
‘We’ve heard the warning from our Premier and the Prime Minister. We will be going through caravan parks early, issuing warnings to people who may think that they can get around these laws.’
There were 48 new cases in NSW on Tuesday, and no new deaths.
