“I would like to apologize to the Victorian community for the very clear mistakes made in this program I think the way the program was created needed to be done quickly,” Andrews told reporters on Monday

“To those who lost a loved one in the first wave and those who lost a loved one in the second wave, we can only offer our support, our sincere apologies and our sorrow over their loss

“This is going to be an incredibly difficult week. On Friday … people will be missing from the Christmas table and I am very sorry and sad

“But my obligation is not only to apologize, but also to offer my obligation to ensure that we do everything we can to learn these lessons and to ensure that these types of mistakes, these types of mistakes, can never be repeated again “”

Mr Andrews said if he could “turn back the clock” he would “get daily reports of what was happening in the hotel quarantine”

“If we could have a system of oversight that, in my opinion, was the best in the country then, as we do now, then of course we would implement these steps,” he said

The fatally flawed hotel quarantine program sparked Victoria’s second wave that spanned more than 18Infected 000 people, killed 801 and put the state in a tough lockdown

“801 people paid with their lives But today there are no answers There is no responsibility Nobody takes responsibility

“Daniel Andrews failed the Victorians and refuses to accept responsibility for the greatest public order failure in the history of our state” ”
