Defence cops more COVID-19 in Melbourne

Defence has added a new case of COVID-19 to it’s tally in Melbourne, bringing the total to 16 for that city and 81 overall.

I’m not sure when exactly this case was added, because I’ve been distracted over the past few days, getting my own mug in the paper.

Defence also added three more to its ‘recovered’ list, bringing that total to 75.

The number of ADF currently on task in Victoria is now 1227, with almost 500 others still on standby.
