Last week PM Scott Morrison announced that government will give the Australian Defence Force $270 billion over the next 10 years.
The funding is to improve Australia’s defences, including strike weapons, cyber capabilities and a high-tech underwater surveillance system.
The focus on strengthening Australia’s defence force if in preparation for what the world might be like after COVID-19.
The NSW Government has announced that it will not allow people living in Melbourne’s hot spot areas to travel to NSW.
Health minister has said anyone from one of the 36 affected post code areas found in NSW will be jailed for 6 months or be fined $11, 000.
This also applies to any NSW people who visit the lockdown areas.
Police will be increasing checks on Victorian travelers in NSW.
Victoria has found 73 new cases of COVID-19 overnight.
3 in hotels quarantine, 9 linked to known outbreaks that are now under control, 19 are from routine testing, 42 are being investigated.
Yesterday 20,682 people were tested across Victoria.
More than 900 people in in Broadmeadows and Keilor Downs have refused to be tested.
Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly said that making tests mandatory will be a last resort.
From midnight tonight, 36 suburbs across 10 post codes will go into lock down.
Premier Daniel Andrews has said, if case numbers keep increasing, more areas could be locked down.
He has said, for the locked down suburbs to be reopened, case numbers would have to decrease consistently until he is confident any outbreaks are under control.
Second Wave – What is it? What does a ‘second wave’ of COVID 19 mean?
There is no formal definition, but think of it like a wave in the ocean.
The number of people infected goes up, and comes down again, this is a cycle of a wave.
In order to say one wave has ended, the virus would have to be under control and case numbers fallen substantially.
For a second wave to happen there would need to be a sustained rise in infections.
A second wave can occur when lockdown restrictions are lifted too much too soon.
Local outbreaks will happen as restrictions are lifted, but that does not mean a guaranteed second wave.
Lockdown restrictions and social distancing have controlled the spread of infection in many countries around the world.
Please do not panic. Continue to follow the Victorian Government restrictions.
