Melbourne "Hard Lockdown"


Recommended Posts

WorkingPoor

Authorities in the Australian city of Melbourne have confined people living in nine housing estate tower blocks because of an outbreak of coronavirus.

The 3,000 or so residents of the blocks are being told not to leave their homes for any reason for at least five days. 

At least 23 cases of infection were found on two estates in recent days.

The state of Victoria recorded 108 new cases on Saturday, its second-biggest daily increase. Australia as a whole has seen 104 coronavirus deaths.

There have been at least 8,362 infections nationwide.

Victoria State Premier Daniel Andrews said the latest figures there were a very real concern to everybody.

How different is the response in Melbourne?

The city is putting "stage three" restrictions on 12 suburbs. People there will only be able to leave the house for four reasons: work or education, exercise, medical care or care-giving, and shopping for supplies.

But the nine tower blocks in Flemington and North Melbourne face a "hard lockdown".

Bet they feel smug they took all the guns away from australians last year.

So people without five days supplies are a bit fucked.

If you think about how wide lifts and staircases in tower blocks are, people have effectively been putting themselves at risk leaving for the last three months anyway

So much for Bad Brexit Boris/Other countries are doing better/Dom was wrong with bite bullet.

Just different infection times.

No vaccine, so coming out of lockdown is going to swing  back hard in continent - bar Sweden.

Southern Europes economy are going to be trashed.

I hear that all flights out of Oz are cancelled. Is that true?

Just looked on flight radar 24 and for a country the size of Oz the number of aircraft up there is very sparse for some reason.

1 freighter and 3 flights, 1 from Doha and 2 from HK over land.

The three light aircraft are all flying doctor service.

      Been looking at various vinyls that can be used for wrapping for two reasons.
      1) I'm getting a roof rack, gutter mounted (I know, very very retro) for new vehicle and am thinking of two-toning the vehicle with a gloss black roof and vinyl would also might stop me scratching the paint.
      2) There seems to be great scope for wrapping all sorts of other things with curves and some of the films available look really interesting.
      Anyone done it at home i.e. DIY wrapping.
