COVID-19 Inquiry

Professor Sutton said the first infected worker in the abattoir's boning room had told the department he had no close contact with other workers. This prompted an outburst from Polwarth Liberal MP Richard Riordan.

"I don't know whether you've been in a boning room. I've got the largest one in Victoria, I think, in my electorate. I'm a regular visitor," Mr Riordan said. "You cannot be in a boning room by yourself. It is a room of up to, you know, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 people at very close quarters. We know internationally, boning rooms and meat processing plants have been problematic."

Ms Mikakos was also questioned on why updated state epidemiology modelling on the pandemic was not released before restrictions were eased on Monday. Earlier, Victorian Liberals leader Michael O'Brien said an MP from his party had been approached by an intermediary for Cedar Meats, who urged them not to name the company as news emerged of a coronavirus cluster at the abattoir.
