"The Premier Got It Wrong"
As Victorians enter into another snap lockdown, it has been revealed that Wangaratta's sewage test has come back negative.
Premier Daniel Andrews, in announcing the seven-day lockdown in a media conference on Thursday, stated sewage water in Wangaratta had pinged with positive traces of Covid-19.
Speaking with Kylie and Kev on the Breakfast show, Wangaratta Mayor Cr Dean Rees said that while there was one positive detected, there has only been negatives since. He believes it was a false positive.
"Our news last night was the Premier's made a mistake on that."
"A couple of days ago it was positive, the second test then showed negative, the third test has been negative as well."
"So if the Premier is locking down all of the country areas down because of misinformation from his staffers, it does pose a bit of a problem." Cr Rees says.
