The positive COVID-19 case which emerged out of Melbourne has sent Victorians “into a bit of a frenzy” as a push to move quarantine hotels out of the city gains growing support.
Premier Daniel Andrews announced on Wednesday the reinstatement of restrictions for all Victorians following a positive COVID-19 test result from an Australian Open hotel quarantine worker.
Sky News reporter Gabriella Power said the case has sent the city into a frenzy with Melbourne’s city streets far more empty than usual.
Ms Power spoke to some Melburnians about hotel quarantine and the push for facilities to be moved to more regional locations.
Many people told Sky News they believe the shift would be more beneficial given the lack of population density in many regional areas.
Premier Daniel Andrews said he is open to discussing the move with the prime minister and the National Cabinet when it meets tomorrow.
