It seems @rachelbaxendale and @Australian are misrepresenting covid data to make it look like Victoria doesn’t contact trace as well as NSW. They’ve played a trick by leaving international arrival cases in figures. Take them out, and Victoria and NSW almost the same. A thread👇🏻
Here is data Murdoch media is using to spread false narrative about Victorian contact tracing. They claim Victoria have been unable to find source for 22% and NSW unknown for 10%. This is not a fair comparison as NSW figure is a percentage of total including international cases.
If you just compare locally acquired cases, which is the only relevant data to compare contract tracing, Victoria has been unable to trace 24% and NSW 23%. Graph below.
Full locally acquired figures are as follows
NSW: known 1345 (77%)
NSW: unknown 392 (23%)
Vic: known 14436 (76%)
Vic: unknown 4551 (24%)
By taking international and interstate arrivals out, you remove 2159 from NSW, and 627 from Vic total, making the numbers far more accurate.
It’s worth noting too that Victoria’s contact tracers would have been overwhelmed when they got to hundreds of daily cases, and NSW has not experienced this, so draw your own conclusions about how comparable outcomes are. Also, don’t ever trust Murdoch media! They deceive. End
