Bookmarked How Victoria’s coronavirus response became a public health ‘bushfire’ with a second-wave lockdown (abc.net.au)

Premier Daniel Andrews is sticking to the National Cabinet’s agreed strategy.

“What we’re trying to do is get this back into a contained space, into a suppressed space,” he said on Thursday.

“There will be some additional cases, some additional outbreaks, but they’ve got to be at a size and scale that you can manage … Not a size and scale that means you’ve got to go back to a stay at home order.”

But so long as Victoria is at risk of outbreaks, so is the entire country.

New South Wales is still recording small numbers of locally acquired infections, many of them in south-west Sydney.

And, as we’ve seen in Melbourne, it only takes one spark to ignite an inferno.

Casey Briggs unpacks how Victoria got to the point where they had to go back to Level 3 restrictions. She discusses the challenges associated with the housing commission flats and Al Taqwa College. The question that comes up again and again are the particular details surrounding the issues associated with hotel quarantine.

The Victorian health department did not answer the ABC’s questions about the failings in hotel quarantine, and didn’t say if there were any legal reasons preventing more detail from being disclosed.

I am sure that all will come out in time.
