Press/Media: Expert Comment


'Romain Ragonnet, an infectious diseases modeller at Monash University, said while it was never possible to predict the future, “based on what we’ve seen in Sydney, it is likely this surge won’t be as bad as predicted.”'

'He told The Age on Friday, one possible reason for this unexpected performance is that Victoria is in the “sweet spot” of its vaccine rollout.'

'“You have a large proportion of the population fully vaccinated recently. We could consider this a sweet spot. And we know it has always been easier to control COVID during summer than winter,” said Dr Ragonnet.'
