Metropolitan Melbourne will go into three lockdowns over a six-week period from 11.59pm on Wednesday night, as the state has reported 191 new cases of coronavirus since Monday, the highest increase since the epidemic.


The Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, announced that people living in the Melbourne metropolitan area and the Mitchellshire area would once again be subject to sanctions, meaning they could leave their homes for needed goods or services or for medical treatment or treatment. The compassionate cause is 11.59pm on Wednesday 19th August.

Andrews cited the rapid rise of cases in Melbourne and said it was inevitable that current sanctions would be changed.

"These are consistently a large number of new cases. At this stage, it is impossible to have enough contact tracing staff at a case rate, wherever they come from, to have enough physical resources to wear any uniform, so that it can suppress the virus without taking important steps and get involved." He said.

"If we fail to take those steps, this is not one of a hundred cases per day. It is many times more than this and the spiral is fine and not really out of control."

Of the new cases, 37 are spread and 154 are under investigation. No cases were found among travelers returning to the hotel detention. There are now 772 active cases in Victoria, and 438 cases may indicate that community transmission has taken place. There were 35 people in the hospital, nine of whom were intensive care.

Since the virus emerged in the state, 2,469 have been from Metropolitan Melbourne, 261 from regional Victoria.

Of the new cases announced Tuesday, 13 are linked to the outbreak of the North Melbourne and Flemington public housing towers, and the total number of cases from those buildings is now at 69. Of the new cases, 12 cases are related to the al-Takan outbreak, with the college now numbering 90. There are four new cases at the northern hospital in Epping, now with a total of nine, eight health staff, and one staff member.

A new case has been confirmed by staff at the Assisi Aged Care Facility in Rosanna. The staff did not work when it was contagious. An extensive examination of employees and residents begins Tuesday.

Victoria Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton says that at this level, about 5,000 close-ups are being monitored by health officials. Andrews said Victoria was at the second wave peak.

“We have to be realistic about the situations we face. We must be clear to each other that this is not the end. And pretending that we all want it to end is not the answer. This is actually part of the problem. A very big part of the problem. "

According to the Reinforced Sanctions, people cannot stay in their holiday homes (Victoria is in the middle of school vacation), but for those who have already gone on vacation, they are allowed to complete their vacation and return home.

People are also not allowed to exercise outside their area, which is only for daily exercise, but not hiking.

People can no longer have visitors to their home, save for who they are in close contact with, and outside meetings are no more than two for those who live in the same house.

The restraining order on the nine towers in Flemington and Kensington will be lifted when residents are examined, and the Chief Health Officer made it clear to all. The towers are subject to the same restrictions as the rest of the Melbourne metro area.

"It won't be long enough to keep those residents safe, and what I know is very challenging measures. When you consider, they are out of proportion to the accident. As we have said many times, many of those nine towers are among the most vulnerable people in our Victorian community."

Andrews said the government is still considering how to treat those who tested positive, and then throw them out of towers.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has agreed to provide Victoria with an additional 260 ADF personnel to assist police in setting up road checks around Melbourne's metropolitan edges. Andrews said not every car is being investigated, but police use license plate recognition technology similar to previously closed suburbs.

Years 11 and 12 will return to specialist schools next week. The school holidays have been extended to everyone for another week, and Andrews said more announcements to return to school will be announced below the track.

For those in need, Andrews said the special school holiday program will be expanded.

In the region, Andrews said he plans to declare sanctions easing in the absence of cases in those areas.

Giving three life cycles to show real data to reduce the virus over a six-week period, Andrews said.

"When you start to see less numbers of stability, we have a lot more confidence that they are real numbers, rather than misinterpreting that the virus is no longer there, or that it can do such a low level of repression strategy."

Meanwhile, NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said 650 police were crossing the Victoria border as the border was closed since midnight to prevent the virus from spreading throughout the state. There is confusion as to why the process of applying for exemption from travel ban is not finalized. Those who tried to cross the border were fined, but no official public health orders were announced.

"We imagine the health orders will be ready after this afternoon," Fuller said. “Services have worked overnight to provide New South Wales technical solutions so that people can apply for an exemption this evening.

After being informed on the New South Wales Government website, we were once warned. If there is a failure in any technology between Tuesday and Tuesday midnight, and you have to cross the border, you have to be patient.

"However you should contact the police and explain the situation and we will work with you."

NSW Police Minister David Elliott has suggested Victoria pay for the border system. Andrews replied that he did not know Elliott, and that he was working with the NSW Premier rather than with his ministers.
