Sumary of Stat that shows Vic lockdown is working:
- The state’s health department confirmed the new local virus cases about 9am but in a positive sign for the Victoria’s lockdown, they said all 26 were linked to existing outbreaks that have stemmed from NSW.
- The health department also said 24 of the 26 cases were in quarantine throughout their entire infectious period – 92 per cent of the new infections.
- Just three days ago that figure was only 6 per cent, but by Wednesday Health Minister Martin Foley said it had risen to 73 per cent of new daily cases fully isolating during their infectious period.
- Mr Foley said the lockdown was working despite the spike in cases.
