I have never said that lockdowns are the first measure. They will never be the first measure. They will be a measure that we implement when we have to do, and only when we have to do.
And as we have always done in Victoria, including the single cases out in the community, with the Park Royal transmission, with the Black Rock transmission, it was significant numbers and they were still managed through contact tracing. We have had a single individual exposing a number of sites in Victoria without a lockdown, without a circuit breaker, because contact tracing does the job.
It is a different story when you have four generations of transmission before you find that first case, especially with these variants of concern.
