Community transmission makes Victoria coronavirus outbreak more precarious and challenging

Original article by Tegan Taylor – Page: Online : 9-Jul-20

Federal MP Katie Allen notes that people returning from overseas accounted for 90 per cent of coronavirus cases in Australia’s first wave. However, the former medical researcher says the majority of cases now being recorded in Victoria are due to community transmission. La Trobe University epidemiologist Hassan Vally says the state government has taken appropriate action to curb the virus’s spread via community transmission, but he stresses that individuals must accept responsibility and comply with lockdown rules. Vally has also cautioned against complacency, warning that a similar coronavirus surge could occur elsewhere in Australia.
