Qld may see a surge of interstate migrants from Victoria post-COVID

I expect many Victorians suffering through stage four restrictions due to the COVID-19 outbreak will be contemplating a move to Queensland. And some savvy Victorians have found a way to do just that already. For instance, see this Nine News report:

Coronavirus: Melburnians escaping stage four lockdown with Queensland border closure loophole

Nick Cater from Menzies Research Centre, the Liberal Party’s think tank, has written in his latest email note:

Victoria is a state from which millions long to escape. The army and police are patrolling its borders, and Melbourne residents are under virtual house-arrest.

Earlier today I recorded a video on what the dire situation in Victoria might mean for interstate migration from Victoria to Queensland in the post-COVID future.
