Weimar: Victoria has a “giant community” across the COVID outbreak

Test Commander Jeroen Weimar says Victoria has a “big network” around her most recent outbreak after 26 new cases were recorded.

He said authorities have identified a “large number” of primary close contacts and will begin testing on day 13.

“Testing on day 13 is now starting for Ariel Apartments. We will of course go through the MCG wave over the weekend to get their tests on day 13, ”he said.

He said it was important to maintain isolation for the full length of an isolation period because some contacts will test positive a second time after a week or eight or nine days.

“We have to maintain this isolation, that’s how we will stay and get this outbreak under control.”
