Andrews Labor Government still wont roll it out rapid antigen testing to help revive major events

Andrews government still not giving a plan to end the uncertainty of lockdown.

Rapid testing could help get our major events sector off life support, but despite public health experts getting behind the measure the Andrews Labor Government still wont roll it out.

Victoria reported four new local coronavirus cases, all linked to current outbreaks and in isolation for their entire infectious period, that is why Victoria needs rapid testing antigen testing to help speed up the states lockdown recovery and help schools to reopen and major events to resume as quickly as possible

Victoria deserves a plan

After nearly three weeks in lockdown even in regional communities that havent got a single active case or exposure site Daniel Andrews has finally signaled light at the end of the tunnel.

But as usual, the Premier wont say when hell release his stranglehold on our freedoms or what the changed restrictions will look like. We cant keep living like this. Victorians deserve hope. We deserve a plan. The Andrews Labor Government could look to other states or the private sector for inspiration.

Rapid testing to boost confidence

Rapid testing is already being rolled out in the aged care sector to test visitors, meaning loved ones can visit regularly and safely while Western Australia will use the tests at border crossings to ensure truck drivers dont bring the virus into the state.

Here in Victoria, a rollout of rapid testing will boost confidence for our decimated major events sector, giving confidence we can safely bring crowds together at agricultural shows, field days, country races, arts festivals or music concerts. Solutions are at our fingertips. But Daniel Andrews is obsessed with telling us what we cant do, instead of giving us a plan to end the uncertainty of lockdown.
