Residents must stay home except for essential shopping, care, exercise, study or work reasons, and on Thursday it became mandatory to wear a mask in public places.Despite these actions, daily new case numbers have stayed stubbornly high and yesterday, reached a new record of 532. For the latest news on the COVID-19 pandemic read our coronavirus update story.So why hasn't Victoria's lockdown brought case numbers down more dramatically? And what else could we be doing to stop the spread? We put those questions to the experts. Here's what they said.Masks may be changing our behaviourBy now the case numbers were hoped to be dramatically lower, says Dr Philip Russo, president of the Australasian College of Infection Prevention and Control.But the fact we only have a loose lid on infection doesn't come down to the Government's response; it's squarely on the public, Dr Russo says."Clearly people aren't following the guidelines and perhaps there's a sense that they're not going to be bothered too much if they do get the infection," Dr Russo says."There's some really obvious disobedience displayed on social media."Space to play or pause, M to mute, left and right arrows to seek, up and down arrows for volume.WatchDuration: 3 minutes 19 seconds3m 19s 'Bunnings Karen' condemned online for refusing to wear maskIt's pleasing that mask-wearing has been largely embraced in Melbourne, but Dr Russo worries people will have a new false sense of confidence and leave their house more and more."Although we're all wearing masks now we still need to continue to only go out for the four reasons (to shop for food, for medical treatment, exercise or work and study)."It may be giving them a sort of false bravado to think they are protected and can go out as much as they like."Coronavirus questions answeredBreaking down the latest news and research to understand how the world is living through an epidemic, this is the ABC's Coronacast podcast.Read moreCompliance appears to be a 'when it suits me' idea for some and the daily hype and hysteria online is distracting people from the key messages, Dr Russo says."It's still has to be about distancing, hygiene and staying at home."Pressure to turn up to workVictorian Premier Daniel Andrews says "far too many people" are going to work while sick, instead of getting tested and staying home while waiting for a result, labelling it "the biggest driver" of coronavirus transmission in the state.The problem has been particularly prevalent in aged care, the Premier says.Julie Leask, a social scientist who specialises in risk communication and nursing at the University of Sydney, says this reluctance to call in sick is largely linked to how financially stable people feel."For example, for casual workers ...isolation after a test could mean no work, less chance you will get a shift in future, and considerable financial stress.
