Victoria records three new COVID-19 cases with no deaths as business leaders put more pressure on Dan Andrews to open up
Victoria has recorded three new coronavirus cases overnight with no deaths as pressure mounts on Dan Andrews to reopen the state.
The latest figures have brought the 14 day rolling average for metro areas to 6.2.
As community transmission continues to decline, residents and businesses are becoming impatient with Victoria’s strict lockdown restrictions.
Business leaders, from seven companies including BHP, the Commonwealth Bank and Wesfarmers, have penned an open letter to the Premier calling for industries to be allowed to reopen.
‘We urge you now, in light of the excellent recent progress, to permit the careful and staged return to the workplace of office workers and the small businesses that provide services to them,’ they wrote.
More to come.
