melbourne lockdown update: Melbourne lockdown Latest Update Covid-19 outbreak sparks restrictions: The number of corona virus cases locked up in Melbourne rose sharply
In Melbourne, Australia’s second most populous state, Victoria, has announced a strict lockdown since 7 days after witnessing rising cases of corona virus. However, so far only 26 cases of Kovid-19 have been found in this city. There are about 5 million people living in this city, who have been banned from going out and meeting each other. In such a situation, questions are being raised that is it a reasonable decision to impose lockdown after only 26 cases are found in such a large population?
So this caused lockdown?
In response to this question, Melbourne’s administration says that the rules have been violated during the hotel quarantine. Due to which cases of corona virus infection have increased. Not only this, highly infectious strain B1617 of Kovid has been found inside positive people. Apart from this, the speed of corona virus vaccination in the state of Victoria is also very slow. In such a situation, the movement of immediate people has been stopped without taking risks.
Melbourne scared of India’s Kovid strain
Acting State Premier of Victoria James Merlino said that we are dealing with a highly contagious strain of the virus. This is the reason for our concern. Due to this strain, cases of corona virus have increased rapidly in Melbourne. The speed of infection of this virus is much higher than before. This strain has caused havoc in India. The virus is believed to have spread through a passenger returned to Australia from abroad.
Instructions to close everything
Schools, pubs and restaurants in Melbourne will be closed today from Thursday night after the lockdown order. The gathering of people at one place has been banned. In addition, it has been made mandatory for people to wear masks in public places. New Zealand has banned flights coming from Victoria after the arrival of a new strain. Not only this, other states of Australia have also increased surveillance of people coming from Victoria.
Center-state dispute over vaccination in Australia too
The Premier of Victoria blamed the conservative central government led by Prime Minister Scott Morrison for the slow vaccination in the state. He said the Scott Morrison government was responsible for the lockdown in Melbourne. If more people had been given the dose of corona vaccine then we would have been facing very different circumstances than today, but sadly it did not happen.
This is the fourth corona lockdown in Melbourne
This is the fourth time the Corona virus lockdown has been imposed in this second largest city of Australia after the epidemic began. Last year too, a rigorous lockdown was imposed in Melbourne for 4 months. People in Melbourne have gone out to shop in large numbers before the lockdown. In such a situation, the possibility of infection is also increasing.
