When it comes to Melbourne now, by some counts, becoming the most locked-down city in the world, premier Daniel Andrews says he is proud of the sacrifices Melburnians have made over the pandemic.
Yesterday he called on them to make a final push before lockdown ends in coming weeks, reports Callum Godde from AAP.
We are going to get past this. We are going to end this lockdown and open up, and all that we will enjoy then will be a result of all that we have given.
