Well, as a Melbourne resident I'm perfectly comfortable with this. Single-digit numbers of infections for days now, there's no reason to keep the lockdown going and every reason to lift it. In fact I'm not convinced it should've been extended beyond the first week. As long as people wear their masks indoors in public places and particularly on public transport - on my train trips to the city just before the lockdown started I was seeing less than 50% compliance with mask-wearing, which was even then supposedly mandatory on public transport. We'll see what happens.

Daily cases have remained in single digits for the last nine days in Victoria while other states and territories have effectively eliminated the virus.

I despair. Nowhere in the world will ever ELIMINATE the virus. This kind of nonsense is why whole states get locked down when there are a handful of daily infections.

One example of how this is gradually dawning on the authorities.

Sure, what could possibly happen? R value has to be less than 1 to be safe, but whatevers

25km from home will take around 7 hours with all the traffic jams.

Wrong. The virus has been eliminated in New Zealand.

Of course the R value is below 1.
