“While there is some better news today out of Victoria, that is not something that we can assume will continue. And so we must maintain the full force of effort in Victoria,” he said.
“In NSW, the news is better. I think what this demonstrates is that we’re in this fight and in some fights, we’ll be behind and in some fights we’ll be ahead.”
“We’re always in the fight in Australia.”
Mr Morrison said the goal of leaders is no community transmission.
