Victoria’s premier, Daniel Andrews, is giving details of the state’s 14 new cases reported today and says the state “will beat this second wave”.
Six of the cases are in a known cluster, eight are being investigated and four are under investigation. Two of the new cases are due to a reclassification.
The tail of this second wave was always going to be stubborn and that is exactly the way it is panning out.
I think it unlikely that we will be able to move as fast as we would like to have done next Sunday. I think it is unlikely that we will be able to take as eager steps as we would have hoped to take next Sunday – big steps.
We will beat this second wave but we have got to do it properly. There is no shortcuts here otherwise we will have literally five minutes of sunshine and will be pin bowling back and forth in and out of restrictions all summer and all 2021.
Victoria’s Premier Daniel Andrews is about to stand up for a press conference – his 100th consecutive day fronting up to reporters.
