I am saddened to see more lives lost, my sympathy to their families. But I’m so pleased to see how low the numbers are. I’m so proud of Victorians and so grateful for the sacrifices made to get us to this point. We are well on the way to eradication. ❤️

Since the start of this pandemic we have taken preventative steps to reduce the risks of infection in our healthcare workers. New data released today confirms that during our second wave, most of our healthcare workers infected with #COVID19  acquired the 🦠 at work. #springst  1/3

Today 24/28 of our new cases are related to aged care outbreaks. Aged care workplaces represent 73% of today’s active healthcare worker infections. Whether it’s pyjama parties or this, it’s really just not good enough.

Dear media, I won’t be doing interviews at my home. Please respect my privacy and safety. When I want to speak to you I’ll call you. As for the people who have distributed my home address widely I have no words.

Vic has met the under 5 threshold which some thought was unachievable. This was a very cautious target. 6/7 of new cases are related to a known outbreak so the risk is manageable. The set reopening is gradual & safe so any delay is unnecessary. It’s paralysis in decision-making.

Dear Red Team, 1 Critical thinking is allowed. We’re not the US. 2 I was an architect of the Roadmap. Public health won out. It’s worked. 3 We’ve met the rolling average. There could be a new outbreak next week. You can’t delay opening up forever. Dear Blue Team, refer to #2 .

#COVID19 is not an old persons’ disease. The biggest age group of Victorians diagnosed since 1 July are aged 20-29 years of age & account for a quarter of Victorian cases. And 20% of patients hospitalised in recent days have been aged under 50 years. So please stay home #springst

A thread: I’ve grown up inspired by Greece’s most enduring contribution to civilisation - democracy. A bust of the great Athenian statesman, Pericles, who built the Parthenon and governed during its golden age of educational and cultural achievement sits proudly in my office.

I’ve avoided giving you the attention you crave but you are an absolute disgrace. As our nation grieves the tragic murder of this woman and her children not only should you be stripped of our nation’s highest honour but you should STFU.

This street art in Black Rock sums up how I feel about our health care workers. Thank you for your work 🙏

This virus doesn’t care how rich you are, where you live or who you vote for. The next 6 weeks will be really tough, but we’ve got through this before & we’ll do it again. If we care for our loved ones & for our community we’ll all follow the rules, slow the virus & save lives.

I live in Darebin, one of the current #COVID19  hotspots. If needed, Stay at Home Directions will be targeted to these hotspot areas. I urge residents in Hume, Brimbank, Casey, Darebin, Moreland & Cardinia to limit their movements as much as possible to stay safe #springst  1/2
