Victoria recorded three new coronavirus cases on 29 October, while people in hotel quarantine account for 10 of the 14 new cases that were reported nationwide. Meanwhile, Australia’s Chief Scientist Alan Finkel has told a Senate estimates committee that he is impressed with the contact-tracing systems of all states and territories. Finkel has particularly praised Victoria’s contact-tracing system and the significant improvements that have been made to it. Some federal politicians have previously questioned whether Victoria’s contact-tracing system would cope with the easing of lockdown restrictions.
