The Australian Victoria Authority Declaration of Co-19 Disaster Status
The Victoria Authority announced the application of a curfew to the Capital City of Melbourne as the most stringent restrictions at present to prevent further spread of Covid-19 or the Corona virus.
Premier Victoria, Daniel Andrews, said the previous rules succeeded in preventing the emergence of new Covid-19 cases every day.
It also managed to prevent the emergence of thousands of new Covid-19 patients.
"But this rule does not have an impact fast enough," Andrews said as reported by Reuters on Sunday, August 2, 2020.
Authorities announced the number of new cases of Covid-19 daily was 671, which was one of the highest. There are 7 people died.
In fact, the government has implemented a lockdown rule for Melbourne for six weeks until August 8. However, the government seems overwhelmed to overcome the Covid-19 pandemic with the number of new cases continuing to grow.
