亲爱的鲍勃,

一年前,澳大利亚人将他们的信任赋予了我们的政府。那时,没有人能预见到澳大利亚将面临的挑战。

在多年的干旱之后,整个夏天,我们美丽的国土被丛林大火和洪水肆虐。清理和重建工作现在认真的在进行中。到6月底,将在受灾地区的数以万计的当地企业,农民,家庭和社区上再建投入约15亿美元。

然后全球COVID-19大流行袭击了我们。到三月,冠状病毒病例以每天25-30%的速度增长。

我们迅速采取行动,是第一批关闭边界的国家之一,并组建了新的国家内阁,以确保各州和领地与联邦紧密合作,共同对抗病毒及其可能造成的经济破坏。

到四月,由于健康危机成为经济危机,有594,000名澳大利亚人失业。

再一次,澳大利亚人面对逆境。我们将以韧性、勇气和同情心去迎接它。

我们政府的工作一直是在澳大利亚全体人民前所未有的支持下面对危机。澳大利亚在应对COVID-19的爆发中,在全球处于领先地位。

通过旅行禁令,聚会限制,社交距离以及全面测试和联系追踪,我们拉平了曲线。新病例的增加率已降至每天不足0.5%。

我们正在支持卫生工作者并采取保护措施,包括:

  • 为我们的医院增加了5,000多台呼吸机。
  • 自3月以来,有980万份Medicare补贴的远程医疗服务。
  • 全国有466家呼吸诊所,其中包括104家由GP领导的新呼吸诊所。
  • 20,800名护士将其技能提升为重症监护。
  • 超过一百万的COVID-19测试。
  • COVIDSafe应用程序已被570万澳大利亚人下载。

澳大利亚以经济强力迎接这场危机的挑战。

在过去的六年中,创造了150万个就业机会。去年,我们的预算在11年中第一次出现财政平衡。

去年,议会通过了二十年来最大的税收减免。

现在,我们正在提供澳大利亚历史上最强有力的经济支撑。这包括JobKeeper计划,为86万家企业中的600万名工人提供支持。

澳大利亚正在开始漫长的复苏之路。

有风险,有挑战,有挫折。

但是,我们不能允许我们由于恐惧而倒退,没有任何东西可以阻止我们前进。

一年前,我曾承诺我们将努力保持经济强劲增长,确保澳大利亚人安全,并使澳大利亚人团结在一起。

让我们团结在一起,这就是我们要告诉大家的信息。

问候,

总理 斯科特·莫里森

 

Dear Bob,

One year ago, Australians put their trust in our government.

No-one could have foreseen the challenges Australia would face since then.

Over summer, communities were devastated by bushfires and floods, after years of drought.

The clean-up and rebuilding is now really moving ahead.

Around $1.5 billion will be spent by the end of June on tens of thousands of local businesses, farmers, households and communities in affected areas.

Then the global COVID-19 pandemic hit us. By March, cases of coronavirus were increasing at a rate of 25-30% per day.

We moved quickly as one of the first to shut our borders, and by forming a new National Cabinet to ensure states and territories all worked closely together with the Commonwealth to fight the virus and the economic damage it would cause.

By April, 594,000 Australians lost their jobs, as the health crisis became an economic crisis.

Again, Australians have faced adversity with resilience, courage and compassion.

The job of our Government has been to back Australians through this crisis with unprecedented support.

Australia is leading the world in our response to COVID-19.

Through travel bans, restrictions on gatherings, social distancing and comprehensive testing and contact tracing, we have flattened the curve.

The rate of increase in new cases has fallen to less than 0.5% per day.

We are supporting health workers and putting protections in place, including:

  • Over 5,000 more ventilators for our hospitals.
  • 9.8 million Medicare-subsidised telehealth services since March.
  • 466 respiratory clinics operating nationally, including 104 new GP-led respiratory clinics.
  • 20,800 nurses upgrading their skills to critical care nursing.
  • More than 1 million COVID-19 tests.
  • The COVIDSafe app, already downloaded by 5.7 million Australians.

Australia entered this crisis in a position of economic strength.

Over six years, 1.5 million jobs had been created. Last year, our budget was in balance for the first time in eleven years.

Last year, parliament passed the biggest tax relief in twenty years.

We are now delivering the biggest economic lifeline in Australia’s history. This includes the JobKeeper program, supporting 6 million workers in 860,000 businesses.

Australia is beginning the long road to recovery.

There will be risks, there will be challenges, and there will be setbacks.

However, we cannot allow our fear of going backwards, to stop us going forwards.

A year ago, I promised we would work to keep our economy strong, keep Australians safe and keep Australians together.

Together, that’s what we are delivering.

Regards,

Scott Morrison
Prime Minister
