During a news conference on Friday, Dr Young said: ‘We are all of us going to end up being infected with Covid, every single person in Queensland.’
‘But if you’ve been vaccinated it’s highly unlikely you will be sick, and definitely very unlikely that you will end up in hospital or the ICU.’
Dr Young’s comments came after Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk posted a Tweet on Wednesday in which she wrote: ‘We’ve done all we can to keep you safe but this next step is up to you.
‘We can’t protect you if you won’t protect yourself.’
The comments were interpreted as Ms Palaszczuk softening her stance on opening Queensland before Christmas.
She had earlier left it open that Queensland may not reopen at 80 per cent of its eligible population fully vaccinated due to uneven rates across the state.
‘The Delta strike will come here in Queensland,’ Ms Palaszczuk warned last week.
‘We need to get our vaccination rates up as high as possible before we have those outbreaks here.’

No need to warn people not to go anywhere near this idiot
