Victoria registers 11 new cases of locally acquired COVID-19

ABC News: Oliver Gordon A heavy police presence blockaded a Melbourne CBD street as anti-lockdown protesters gathered on Saturday.( )

Victoria’s fifth lockdown is currently scheduled to end at midnight on Tuesday, but authorities have raised concerns that Saturday’s anti-lockdown protest in Melbourne could jeopardise the lift on restrictions. More than 32,000 tests were conducted across the state yesterday, and there are 179 active cases.

Thousands of people defied lockdown yesterday to march through the city in protest against stay-at-home rules. The state’s health department says all of the cases were in quarantine throughout their entire infectious period.

The march was labelled a “blatant disregard” for the safety of others by Victoria police.( ABC News: Oliver Gordon “It beggars belief that the protest could – if mass spreading occurs – result in an extension of the very thing they are protesting for: an end to the current lockdown and a reopening of business, which is something we are all working so hard to achieve.”

“It was disappointing to see so many people blatantly disregard the chief health officer’s directions, putting the health of Victorians at risk,” Assistant Commissioner Cornelius said. Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius said he was concerned the event could spread the virus and undo much of the gains that the state had made through the lockdown.
