Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews to get back to work in two weeks

Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews has revealed he will return to work on Monday, June 28, three months after being hospitalised by a fall.
Mr Andrews made the announcement on social media where he also announced that he had received a COVID-19 vaccine.
“If you can, you must,” he posted.
Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews confirms day he will return to work
Last night the premier said he was looking forward to returning to work.
“I want to share some good news with you,” Mr Andrews said in a statement last night.
“My vertebra has almost fully healed and my ribs are well on track. The team taking care of me has given me the all clear to get back to work soon.
“To Cath, the kids and the doctors, nurses, ambos and physios who’ve taken care of me — I can’t thank you enough.”
Mr Andrews said with the vertebrae fully healed he has finally been able to ditch the brace he’s worn for 18 hours a day for the last three months.
“But ribs are not fully healed, they’ll take a while, and the doctors have told me these next few weeks will be quite a painful adjustment to getting used to not having that brace on.”
Mr Andrews once again thanked Acting Premier James Merlino for “an amazing job”.
“On Monday 28 June I’ll be back to work — and back to getting things done. I can’t wait,” Mr Andrews said.
Mr Andrews suffered broken ribs and spinal damage after falling on wet stairs on March 9.
