Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull addresses the media on Thursday, April 23, 2018. Malcolm Turnbull says he will not criticise Andrews’ current approach to the crisis in Victoria. “I’m just happy I’m living in NSW,” he adds. On Andrews’ decision to appear for daily media conferences, Turnbull says one of the central principles of crisis management was to keep citizens informed. “When you are faced with any form of crisis, you have to build confidence,” he says. “Keeping the public informed is 101 of crisis management. “You need to deliver as much information as possible and not talk gobbledigook. Having all the facts and figures out there is very important. Denis Napthine Victorian Premier 2013-2014. “Daniel Andrews gets no sympathy from me,” says Denis Napthine. “We see evidence every day of the total and utter blundering and mismanagement that led us here. “My view is that, tragically, Daniel Andrews and his team totally mismanaged hotel quarantine and contact tracing, inflicting disaster on Victoria’s community, its economy, its businesses, and costing hundreds of lives”. Napthine, who studied epidemiology for his Masters in Veterinary Science at Melbourne University, says he had been alarmed from the start when he discovered “bouncers” were being used to guard travellers in hotel quarantine. “They chose completely the wrong people for a vital biosecurity role,” he says. “When you are under great pressure, you need to unwind with people you love and trust, and refresh yourself with good reading and good music. “During the 2007 election campaign, I read the histories of the American Revolution. During the Global Financial Crisis, I turned to the history of the Tudors”. Rudd finds no fault with Andrews’ decision to put himself at the centre of the COVID-19 crisis strategy every day. “I’d give the guy eight of 10 for his performance, maybe a bit better than that,” he says. “I ask myself the question: what would I do if I was him? “I don’t think, given the gravity of the challenge, that he could absent himself from the field. “On the first day he did, he’d most likely come in for attack. “Right now, of course, you have Daniel Andrews unfairly attacked for choosing a strategy of locking down the city of Melbourne. “But none of those doing the attacking are asking what the consequences would be of abandoning the lockdown and allowing the virus to spread unchecked”. Rudd says that when he was prime minister during the Global Financial Crisis, he learned how difficult it was to have confidence in the accuracy of data being provided by others. “You can have all the confidence in yourself, but the real anxiety is how accurate is the data you receive from others and the advice you are getting" External link

Malcolm Turnbull says he will not criticise Andrews’ current approach to the crisis in Victoria. “I’m just happy I’m living in NSW,” he adds.

Napthine, who studied epidemiology for his Masters in Veterinary Science at Melbourne University, says he had been alarmed from the start when he discovered “bouncers” were being used to guard travellers in hotel quarantine. “They chose completely the wrong people for a vital biosecurity role,” he says. “When you are under great pressure, you need to unwind with people you love and trust, and refresh yourself with good reading and good music. “During the 2007 election campaign, I read the histories of the American Revolution.

Rudd finds no fault with Andrews’ decision to put himself at the centre of the COVID-19 crisis strategy every day. “I’d give the guy eight of 10 for his performance, maybe a bit better than that,” he says. “I ask myself the question: what would I do if I was him? “I don’t think, given the gravity of the challenge, that he could absent himself from the field. “On the first day he did, he’d most likely come in for attack. “Right now, of course, you have Daniel Andrews unfairly attacked for choosing a strategy of locking down the city of Melbourne. “But none of those doing the attacking are asking what the consequences would be of abandoning the lockdown and allowing the virus to spread unchecked”.
