ACT Chief Health Officer Kerryn Coleman it provided some clarity as to why it was necessary to extend the orders to stay at home in the territory. There are concerns about unknown transmission chains in the community.


After a rapid increase in the number of cases at the very beginning of the outbreak, which we usually see, our numbers appear reasonably stable, although they change from day to day and because we are small competencies, this fluctuation can sometimes seem quite large. It is important to note, however, that in approximately 50 cases we do not know the contact or source of their infection. And it is worrying that more than half, about 28 of these cases have been reported in the last two weeks, so that number is not decreasing, which we would like i love to see.

These unknown cases indicate possible unidentified transmission chains in the community, and therefore pose an increased risk, especially for those in our community who have yet to be vaccinated. Social public health measures, such as restricting movement within the community, are actually the only way we can reduce the risk that these unidentified chains of missions cause further infections in the absence of high levels of vaccination coverage, and I know many of you have been interested in our the effective reproductive rate we just managed to keep around one. So the estimate from the modeling we have access to is 0.96, but with the uncertainty about it, it’s about one. It therefore relies heavily on maintaining our effective control measures.
