Black Lives Matter protester among new COVID-19 cases in Victoria

National Nine News

A person who attended Saturday’s Black Lives Matter protest in Melbourne is one of eight new cases of COVID-19 in Victoria.

Chief Health Officer, Dr Brett Sutton, confirmed the news on Thursday morning.

“The lesson here is that it’s not over for Victoria, not over for Australia,” he said.

The protester in question was “probably infectious” at the time.

They did wear a mask at the rally.
