The inquiry has heard of a litany of failings within the system, which can be linked to the vast majority of cases in Victoria’s second wave.

Mr Andrews has consistently said he holds ultimate responsibility for the scheme as Premier.

Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said the proportion of new daily cases was “very strongly in favour” of known outbreaks.

He said about 35 per cent of new cases were linked back to aged care outbreaks and about 40 per cent were people who were close contacts of those linked to known outbreaks.

“It is really only 10 to 20 per cent that are unknown-acquisition or mystery cases,” Professor Sutton said.
