Commissioner Carroll says the report is unlikely to pinpoint a particular incident and will instead put forward possibilities and make general recommendations on how to tighten up procedures at all hotels.

She used the example of police finding that the Grand Chancellor didn't have CCTV cameras on level seven, where the transmission occurred, and how they later audited camera in all quarantine hotels.

"We mightn't know exactly how that transpired on that day but there will be some good scenarios of how it could have happened and there will be many learnings for all of us," Commissioner Carroll told 4BC radio.

She said police still hadn't interviewed everyone on level seven, so there could be more information revealed about the outbreak before the final report is handed down.

Commissioner Carroll denied that there was any evidence a person linked to the outbreak had done the wrong thing or lied about their movements.

"No one's purposely done the wrong thing, because we're all trying to do the right thing, and I think the best we can do is to learn from this and make sure it does not happen again because travellers are going to keep coming back from overseas ... and people are people," she said.
