While Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews must get on top of the coronavirus situation in his state it is also important to keep some perspective on the numbers of deadly virus says Sky News host Chris Kenny. On Monday, Victoria recorded 75 new cases of COVID-19, as the state has seen a steady increase in case numbers of the past fortnight. However, Mr Kenny said “it is important to focus not just on the total new cases in Victoria … but (to) look at the total number of active cases”. “Just 288, in a state of more than 6 million people, fewer than 300 cases.“And how many are in hospital, just nine,” he said.
