Extending the emergency to another four weeks following the spike in Victoria Covid-19 cases



Following the rise of the Covid-19 cases, the Victorian government has announced that it will extend its state of emergency for at least four weeks and increase police enforcement of lockdown provisions.

The rise prompted Reider to re-examine its decision to reopen neighboring South Australia, and Queensland declared Melbourne more than a Covid-19 hot spot.

On Sunday, state health minister Jenny Michakos announced that there were 19 new cases of the virus in the state, with 10 cases believed to be the result of community transmission. This led to the total number of active Covid-19 cases in the state reaching 121, the highest in two months.

Machakos told reporters that Spike, who had seen 77 cases in four days before Sunday, called on the state government to extend its state of emergency until at least July 20, and prompted increased police enforcement levels in specific Kovid-19 "hotspots." Everything Victoria.

He said one of the new cases on Sunday was related to a family in Kaylor Downs, and that the number of cases in the cluster had spread to nine homes.

"It's still a very serious situation," Machakos said Sunday.

"We have some concerns, especially about family celebrations, which extend to many families and even visit each other when experiencing mild symptoms."

Machakos confirmed that a grade three student at St. Mary's Primary School in Hampton gave a positive test. The student attended a school that was contagious, and she said the school was closed when the contact closed.

The rise of the cases prompted South Australia to re-examine its decision to reopen the border with Victoria. The SI border was to be reopened on July 20 at the height of the epidemic, but its government did not rule out the closure.

"We will not open our borders unless Victoria is safe," Health Minister Stephen Wade said Saturday. "Our number one priority is the health of South Australians."

The Queensland Covid-19 Hotspot on Sunday also announced a total of 31 Melbourne local government areas, meaning anyone who comes to the city should be in self-detention for 14 days.

Queensland Chief Health Officer Jeanette Young said the hot spots covered all 31 Melbourne local government areas as well as the border areas of Marandi, Mitchell, Morbool, Macedonia and the Greater Geelong.

The state has already recognized the terms of the Covid-19 lockdown as Victoria is spreading. The Victorian Police Minister, Lisa Neville, said the police would "reinforce that enforcement once again."

"The main focus is to strengthen implementation, as it is now in the hotspot areas, and potentially in the future. He will also focus on school holidays and around the ski season.

On Sunday, state Chief Health Officer Brendan Sutton confirmed that a player named Connor McKenna, who tested positive for Covid-19, had to be self-separated by Essendon AFL club members.

Sutton, however, said he was not sure if this meant he would quit the team matches for the next fortnight.

"If that person is trained by the number they can't play, they should move on, but if they can handle the current player roster, remove those close contacts. Then they move on," Sutton said.

"I think they're still working on a close contact list."

The new spike in Covid-19 cases in Victoria means people will once again have to cancel social schemes and wait for struggling businesses.

From midnight to Sunday 12 July, Victorians will be able to keep only five people in their homes, and meetings outside the home will be limited to 10.

Cafes, restaurants, and pubs were scheduled to expand their patrons from 20 to 50 on Monday, but have now been discontinued - a setback for businessmen who are desperate for a recovery. The gym, cinema, indoor sports center, and concert venue will be allowed to reopen for the first time, but with a limit of 20 people.
