"Every time I see the Premier, Daniel Andrews on the television and every time I hear the Premier speak, I feel a sense of dread and anxiety," she said.

"I am insecure about whether he is going to reimpose the curfew, simply because he has the power to do so."

Lawyers for Ms Loielo grilled senior medical advisor Associate Professor Michelle Giles, who approved the curfew's extension.

Professor Giles fired back: "I disagree. I was not dictated to by anybody".

The top health official revealed she disagreed with Mr Andrews' comments that the curfew was to help law enforcement.

Ms Giles said it was a public health measure in a package deal with the other stage four restrictions, all aimed at reducing movement in the community.

"I don't agree with some of [the premier's] comments," Associate Professor Giles said.
