The state government of Victoria, the second most populous in Australia, decreed five days’ confinement after an outbreak of Covid-19 related to a hotel where people arriving from abroad fulfill the mandatory quarantine. The measure, which was announced by Governor Daniel Andrews, comes into force on Saturday, 14. Thus, the 6.7 million inhabitants of the region, whose main city is Melbourne, will only be able to leave the house to go to the supermarket, to the doctor, to play sports or to work, if the job in question is part of an activity considered essential. Face masks are mandatory at all times and home visits are not allowed.

Since to strain british coronavirus was detected outside a Melbourne hotel that is suitable for people who must quarantine, local authorities have confirmed 13 new cases of the disease. “We have to assume, based on the advice (of the experts), that there are cases of transmission that we do not know and that are spreading at the speed of light,” said Governor Daniel Andrews when justifying the confinement. Australia has confirmed 28,879 cases of Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic, including 907 deaths, of which about 20,460 infections and 829 deaths correspond to the state of Victoria.
