An Army of 14,000 nurses and doctors have been called to relieve the 529 healthcare workers who have caught the Covid 19 coronavirus in Victoria.
This comes directly after Premier Daniel Andrews initiated the restriction on Wednesday night that all Victorians must wear a mask when outside their home.
In a press conference earlier, he said that “no health system would cope” if infection numbers climbed further. That is the reason for mandatory mask wearing, and the reason why support has been initiated around the state.
Australian Defense Force soldiers also continue to patrol the streets of Melbourne to enforce the new restrictions. $200 fines are being issued for those who are disobeying the new regulations.
In New South Wales, where covid clusters are beginning to pop in Sydney and border towns, stricter restrictions have also gone into effect where group gatherings of no more than 10 people will be allowed.
