Australia’s Victoria declares state of disaster to curb virus

The Australian state of Victoria has declared a state of disaster and imposed new lockdown measures after a surge in COVID-19 infections. Under the new rules, residents of the state capital Melbourne are subject to a night-time curfew. Victoria now accounts for many of the country’s new infections in recent weeks. The new rules will remain in place until at least 13 September.

671 cases isnt all that many, considering 7 deaths. That's a 0.01% death rate, meaning most of the people infected, are young and more of less unaffected by the virus. Because of that, curfew from 8p to 5a. Night workers will get to experience, "Ihre Papiere, bitte". One person per household is allowed to leave the home to shop. How are they going to measure that? One hour of exercise per day. How are you going to measure that? Cant leave 5km from your home? More, "Ihre Papiere, bitte". Weddings are banned. Seems pretty dam draconian to me. I guess this is what leftist wanted Trump to do and then would say he was being a facist...

In a world of REAL death counts and massive volumes, the Australian numbers really deliver nothing. The great southern state,known local as the "Nanny State" for years.. Lives up to expectations.. Australian testing is almost as high as America per million.. However the death numbers are less than influenza in 2019. We continue to quarantine the healthy and smash the local economy based on just 200 elderly deaths in 8 months.. State Government spread fear and media fatten fearful adjectives.. This situation will become clearer over time, Local Business will fail, but no person in power, in government, in control of unions, will be held accountable.
