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.
