Modeling solutions

Victoria has recorded another 450 cases overnight -- still a way off the "secret Victorian government modelling" The Australian published yesterday, suggesting that daily new case numbers would exceed 1000 in late August.

As Christopher Warren writes elsewhere in Crikey today, the Victorian government has since denied the figures came from their (or any) government.

The state has also recorded 11 new deaths -- seven connected to nursing homes.
