Last year, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews fronted Victoria's daily press conferences for 120 consecutive days. That's four months.
Over 17 weeks, Andrews spoke every day to a swarm of journalists desperate for news to feed back to the 6.3 million Victorians whose livelihoods relied on what came out of his mouth.
Now, amid Victoria's latest coronavirus cluster, residents are seeing a new face: Acting Premier James Merlino.
So, where is Dan Andrews?
In March, Daniel Andrews fell on "wet and slippery stairs" that caused several broken ribs and vertebrae damage.
Mr Andrews was admitted to Intensive Care, before he was released a couple of days later to recover at home.

On April 18, Mr Andrews said he was making steady progress and is "being diligent with [his] physio exercises".
He added: "A couple of weeks ago when I started daily walks, I could only manage about 15 minutes – now I’m out for almost an hour."
Just wanted to give everyone an update. Thanks to the best of care, I’m making slow and steady progress.— Dan Andrews (@DanielAndrewsMP) April 18, 2021
