While it remains incredibly vital and serious information, people couldn't help but notice Premier Andrews' AUSLAN interpreter.

At one point, he put two middle fingers up to everyone, a moment that has since gone viral on social media.

Turns out the interpreter was signing the word for 'holiday', 'lazy' or 'to do nothing' which isn't the first time it's been used during a press conference.

But the word 'lazy' was very pertinent for the Premier's press conference yesterday. Mr Andrews said people haven't been self-isolating when they experience symptoms.

Man Charged With Threatening To Kill Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews

"I'm very unhappy and very sad to have to report that nearly nine in 10 - or 3,400 cases - did not isolate between when they first felt sick and when they went to get a test.

"That's an interesting measure in that people have felt sick, they've got symptoms, and they've kept going shopping, they've kept going to work."

What's even worse was more than 50 per cent of people who ended up getting tested also didn't go home until they got their results back.

Mr Andrews added: "I'm equally saddened to have to report that 53 per cent - or 2,056 of those 3,810 cases - did not isolate - that is, did not stay at home and have no contact with anybody else - between when they had their test taken and when they got the results of that test."

While Premier Andrews was saddened that people aren't getting the message, he calmly and accurately explained what needs to happen from now if the state is going to bring the second wave under control.

"You must go and get tested when you feel sick," he said. "That is the only thing that you can and must do. And if people don't do that, then we will continue to see numbers increase.

"Unless we have people who get tested staying at home and isolating until they get their results, then we will not see these numbers come down. They will continue to go up and up."
