When Melbourne threw the kitchen sink at a coronavirus

The Age looks at the 2020 Melbourne lockdown with a modicum of hindsight.

‘‘No one had done lockdown before coronavirus. Maybe we wouldn’t have even thought of it had Wuhan not done it. There are still enormous gaps in the science – how much do you need to do, what is redundant and what really makes a difference? It is a very murky scientific area because most places, including us, threw everything at it at the same time.’’
