Coronavirus Australia: Melbourne under strict lockdown as cases surge | DW News

In Australia, a state of disaster has been declared in the state of Victoria after a surge of coronavirus infections. A range of new stricter lockdown measures have been imposed, including a nighttime curfew for the capital Melbourne. Melbourne has been in COVID-19 turmoil since being hit with a second wave in June. An initial lockdown failed to bring numbers down, forcing authorities to further tighten restrictions. Now, residents will only be allowed to leave home for work, medical care, or to shop for essentials. Outdoor recreation is also limited to one hour a day.

  1. We were warned by the scientists, doctors and nurses. Politicians ignored the warnings and data.
    Murdoch media have been irresponsible and played politics with public health.
    Register and VOTE for leaders that respect science. Your life may depend on it.

  2. First the Australian government took the citizens guns. Second the government is starting to impose socialism communist lockdowns. The people are unable to resist.
