Foley also confirmed that genomic testing was under way to determine the source of the infection, though authorities were not ruling out a link to the hotel quarantine case from Adelaide.

Victoria’s Chief Health Officer, Brett Sutton, said at the briefing “I have always made the case we should never be complacent… We will always be at risk until we have high vaccination coverage”.
