Richard Riordan MP - Vic Covid Outbreak an “unmitigated disaster”

The ongoing mismanagement of the COVID-19 outbreak in Victoria has resulted in an “unmitigated disaster” in regional areas according to Victorian Liberal MP Richard Riordan.

Nearly 2,000 people in Colac were forced into quarantine from July 17 to July 21 after a number of cases were recorded in the area.

Mr Riordan said after almost 14 days since the first positive COVID-19 result in Colac, “not one piece of correspondence has gone to the Mayor, nothing to myself as the parliamentary representative of the region.

There is no communication, there is zero feedback”. The consequence of the poor turnaround of coronavirus tests and slow contact tracing processes has been a jump “from zero to 79 cases in 14 days”.

Mr Riordan told Sky News host Peta Credlin his “office has become a call centre” as local people attempt find answers to their questions amid the lack of communication from the DHHS.

“The Victorian government is mismanaging this almost to a criminal extent”.
