Spotlight: July 18
Seven reports on the inside story on how the Delta variant breached Fortress Australia.
Tonight a 7NEWS Spotlight special “Delta On Board” examines how the Delta variant found its way here, and the toll it is taking on our communities and economy.
Executive Producer, Mark Llewellyn, said: “This is not another story on COVID, this is the inside story on how the Delta variant breached Fortress Australia.
“From the time Flight FX 77 landed to that fateful limo ride we expose the astonishing weaknesses that have left all of us at risk.”
The arrival of the COVID-19 Delta variant has thrown Australia’s two biggest cities back into lockdown, prompted State borders to slam shut again, and raised even more questions about the glacial pace of the nation’s vaccine rollout.
Told through the eyes of the people on the frontline – the real Australians who are fighting COVID-19 and fighting to survive it – this special report includes startling revelations about the failure of the vaccine rollout and first-hand accounts of battling the virus including from NSW Agriculture Minister Adam Marshall.
7NEWS Spotlight: Delta On Board is essential viewing for all Australians, as we confront one of the biggest public health scares in our nation’s history.
8.30pm Sunday on Seven.
