AMA boss predicts Melbourne’s lockdown will be extended
The head of Victoria’s peak medical body predicts Melbourne’s second lockdown will last for more than six weeks, as the COVID-19 pandemic worsens.
President of the Australian Medical Association (AMA) Victoria, Associate Professor Julian Rait, made the prediction while discussing the AMA’s suggestion to set up COVID-19 testing checkpoints on the border of the lockdown zone.
At the conclusion of the interview, Ross asked Professor Rait how he thinks Victoria is tracking.
Ross: Given the figures that we’ve got, I’m budgeting on this lockdown being a lot longer than six weeks.
Professor Rait: That’s my guess too, Ross. I would agree.
