Uiteraard mogen we van de media alleen goede dingen zeggen over het Covid-beleid. Maar fans bij de Australian Open lieten van zich horen toen de deputy prime minister sprak over onder andere vaccins.

Covid: Australian Open fans criticised for booing vaccine

Australia's deputy prime minister has condemned the "disgusting" behaviour of some Australian Open tennis final fans who loudly booed mention of the country's Covid-19 vaccine rollout.

The booing happened during an awards ceremony after the men's final, when a tennis official referred to global vaccine efforts as a sign of optimism.

Australia started its national inoculation programme on Monday.

Some cities saw anti-vaccination protests held at the weekend.

The men's number one player Novak Djokovic won the final against Russian Daniil Medvedev on Sunday.

Djokovic has been criticised in the past for appearing to have a casual attitude towards virus-related restrictions and faced scrutiny last year over comments he made about vaccinations.


"An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people."
