“Yesterday, Victoria recorded just two cases, while the UK recorded 16,982. That’s what’s happening elsewhere in the world, and it underlines how well Victoria has done getting on top of its case numbers.”
Mr Miles also said it was “incredible” that Queensland had only four active cases, while expressing concern about community transmission in NSW.
“In the last seven days NSW has recorded four active cases of unlinked community transmission, that’s twice the number of the week before, when they recorded two.”
Queensland’s border with NSW remains shut, excepting the “border bubble” of communities on either side, with Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk again confirming on Monday that they would revisit the border situation before October 31.
“As we’ve said very clearly – I’ve said this nearly every single day [of the election campaign] – the decision will be made at the end of the month,” the Premier said.
