The trouble is that the government and/or the public service doen't have
the competence to properly interpret the modelling.

Ross Gittins explains the broader problem in the SMH:

Smaller Government push explains much of our pandemic fumbling


Not only has the government hollowed out the public service so they
can't do the work themselves, they can't understand/validate the people
they now consult with.

Government and business are very different creatures.
