Very sad,but their families at least have some sort of closure & will be able to grieve.My prayers are with you all.Now justice.πŸ™πŸ™

Sad but will bring certainty & a chance of moving forward for the family & friends if it is Carol or Russell ..

The entire situation is tragic, my thoughts with family and friends

At least the families will know what happened and be able to hold funerals to say goodbye.

Senseless 😒 poor families can start to close this chapter and have closure

I really hope that this is the beginning of the end of this search for all concerned.

I wonder where these figures come from when so many people locally are unvaccinated. No criticism there, it's a personal choice but definitely more than 5% of our shire's population has no intention of being vaccinated from what I see πŸ€”

Great job Murrindindi residents. πŸ₯‡

Yes good news and well done to us.

Good on us well done to everyone for doing the right thing

Health officials believe that nine of the cases were infectious when they attended the rally, with seven others likely acquiring COVID-19 at the protest.

Only one of the 19 people was fully vaccinated.

They are not the kind of people that would go out and get tested so soon after the rally. So this news report that’s all over the tv and online doesn’t make sense

And 20 got it at a double vaxed only event.

So what does this tell all these ???? Wit’s 🀬 get the jab
