The Australian city of Melbourne ends the 5th COVID-19 blockade

“This lockdown … sends a very clear message that we have seen off two delta outbreaks,” Andrews said. “I don’t think there’s a jurisdiction in the world that has been able to achieve that, and every Victorian should be proud of that.” The five-day lockdown across Victoria ends at 11:59 p.m., allowing schools, pubs and restaurants to reopen, Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews said. But people will not be allowed to have visitors in their homes for another two weeks. Sydney, Australia’s most populous city where the delta outbreak began in mid-June when a limousine driver was infected while transporting a U.S. air crew from the airport, remains in lockdown indefinitely after more than four weeks. The new outbreak has claimed 10 lives.

CANBERRA, Australia — Australia’s second-most populous city Melbourne will end its fifth lockdown on Tuesday with the Victoria state government declaring it had beaten an outbreak of the highly contagious COVID-19 delta variant for a second time. July 27, 2021, 3:28 AM

The South Australia government announced that the state’s week-long lockdown will end as planned on Wednesday after no new COVID-19 cases were recorded Tuesday. Australian states are quick to lock down due to relatively small clusters because of the low vaccination coverage of the population. Only 16% of adults are fully vaccinated. It was the third consecutive day in which no new cases in Victoria had been in the community while infectious.

Victoria reported 10 new cases on Tuesday, but all had been in isolation while they were infectious. The New South Wales state government on Tuesday reported 172 new infections in the latest 24-hour period, a new daily record.
