Earlier this week, more than 3000 Victorian residents were forced into lockdown for what they thought would be just five days. Now, the state of Victoria will be back in lockdown for at least the next 6 weeks.
Initially originating in the suburbs of Flemington and North Melbourne, residents across nine housing commission towers were told that they needed to go back into lockdown after a record spike in new coronavirus measures.
Many of the residents are reported to still be waiting for food. While others have been given expired food from 2019.
Acting Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelley compared the housing towers to be that of “vertical cruise ships” where the virus is deemed to spread easily.
Now, the reported number of cases is at the highest daily numbers since March and it is mostly taking place within the borders of Victoria.
Victorian premier Daniel Andrews has told The Australian that “It was always going to get worse before it got better and that “We are doing more testing than has ever been done.”
While door-to-door tests are being issued throughout the state, others have hinted that this will not be enough to combat the virus.
