News Today || Headlines Today

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews will return to work at the end of the month after slipping on stairs at a holiday home on the Mornington Peninsula in March.

“This week I had another round of scans and a meeting with my care team at the Alfred and got some good news,” he tweeted on Saturday night.

“I’ve been given the all clear to return to work soon.”


Mr Andrews broke several ribs during his accident and suffered an acute compression fracture of the T7 vertebra.

The 48-year-old was released from The Alfred Hospital on March 15 and has been recovering at home since.

“Overall I’m feeling good,” Mr Andrews said.

In his statement, the premier thanked his wife and children, and medical staff for their care.

He also thanked Acting Premier James Merlino “for stepping in to lead the government and the state through a really difficult time”.
