Authorities 'lost a day' before getting to COVID-19 contacts in Sydney and Victoria

Deakin University Chair of Epidemiology Catherine Bennett says authorities could have gotten on top of the outbreaks in Sydney and Victoria but when they got to a “contact of a case, they had already had a day out in the community infectious”.

“The pattern was days in the community before they’re identified, so that’s actually shifted things, we’ve actually lost a day," Professor Bennett told Sky News.

“It’s hard to see how we could possibly pick that up, even with everybody participating in trying to close it down so unfortunately that’s what’s triggered these lockdowns now,” Ms Bennett told Sky News host Chris Kenny.

Ms Bennett said she believes South Australia is trying to avoid similar outbreaks to Victoria and New South Wales - especially given the challenge posed by Delta variant.
