What the co-author of the modelling behind the roadmap thinks Victorians should know
The co-author of the modelling which underpins Victoria’s COVID-19 roadmap says “our future is not set in stone”, and what every Victorian does now can and will impact what happens in coming months.
Professor Margaret Hellard from the Burnet Institute says the modelling is “what is likely to happen based on the current situation”.
“Our modelling would suggest that cases are going to continue to go up for some time and critical is that we try and do everything we possibly can to not have them go up too fast, too quickly,” she told Neil Mitchell.
But Professor Hellard says “we can actually change it”.
“We have to expect that things will constantly change,” she said.
“I actually think we’ve all got a role to play.
“If we can get a 15 per cent improvement across the board we are not going to get the world of pain and we’re going to get out of this faster.
“Where do we get that 15 per cent from? We get it from everybody doing a little bit.”
