Australian Industry Group CEO Innes Willox says Melbourne being the most locked down city in the world is the record “nobody wanted”.

“Melbourne is sort of deeply divided, fearful, confined in a lot of places – it’s a pretty sad, sorry place,” Mr Willox told Sky News Australia.

“Melbourne is pretty much a broken place and 246 days of lockdown would do that to you, that’s eight months of lockdown in 18 months.

“It means that our economy has been losing somewhere between 700 and a billion dollars a week but the entire time, the economic devastation is huge, it’s emotional, it’s impacted our education, our economy and Melbournian’s resilience quite frankly.”
