We’re focused on Victoria … Our focus at the moment here is: what else can we contain, the widespread community transmission in the north and west, the work the public health team are doing right now. What projection are we on right now? Are we on a projection like New South Wales? Is that the case numbers we can expect going forward? Or can we still, as Victorians, get this contained at a far lower trajectory, which gives us far more options over the weeks ahead? There’s a huge amount of monitoring going forward to try and understand which of those projections we can be on and what difference those different measures will make.
I think in terms of timing, we’re all frustrated. We would all like to know when we can do things again, when we can return to normal practices, when we can go out of Melbourne again and when all those other things become possible. Our focus as a team over the last few weeks has been around how can we contain the pandemic as much as possible? That’s what’s allowed us to release regional Victoria as of midnight last night, to see how we’ll watch the developments over the coming days very carefully. If we’re seeing the virus continue to be contained and we don’t see huge spot fires in regional Victoria, that will give us confidence and open up more options going forward. That’s all the work we need to do over the days ahead.
