EbeneNews – UA – Victoria has no virus deaths, new case


    There was a delay in consolidating daily figures on Tuesday morning because the Department of Health and Human Resources was apparently verifying one of the two new cases initially reported

    When the numbers were set, it was reported that one of the infected had a Victorian address but was in quarantine after returning from overseas

    The 14-day moving average of new cases in Melbourne also fell below 7 to 64 and the number of mystery cases in the city from October 4 to 17 also fell by two to 13

    The latest figures come as the state government plans to cut its quarantine program at troubled hotels and use electronic monitoring devices for some returning travelers

    The use of such devices was seen as a way to ensure returning travelers self-isolate, The Age reported on Tuesday

    Prominent lawyer and human rights activist Julian Burnside, president of Liberty Victoria, has said he supports electronic surveillance as an alternative to quarantine in hotels

    « It seems to me that the idea is good, as long as it saves people from something worse, » he told ABC radio

    « I don’t like the idea of ​​electronic surveillance, but if it’s a violation of individual freedoms in an attempt to make the country safer it is, then I think it is justifiable

    « If it saves you the horror of being locked in a hotel room for two weeks, then I think that’s justifiable too »

    Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews reassured Melburnians that they won’t have to wait until 2021 before they can travel to regional areas

    A so-called « steel ring » separating the Melbourne metropolis from the Victoria area remains in place despite an easing of coronavirus restrictions in the city on Sunday evening

    M Andrews wants this restriction and others to be relaxed before Christmas, but the PM has yet to commit to a date

    Shepparton and Kilmore have cleaned up outbreaks in recent weeks after a COVID-positive Melbourne truck driver pulled up at regional centers

    « They don’t want a situation that is endangered by people taking trips to the Victoria area that are not absolutely necessary, » said M Andrews to reporters on Monday

    The Prime Minister also admitted on Monday that New Zealanders could enter Victoria despite the state failing to register to be part of a trans-Tasman travel bubble negotiated by the federal government

    M Andrews contends that the Federal Government did not notify him that New Zealanders arriving in Sydney were allowed to travel beyond the participating states of New South Wales, ACT and the Northern Territory

    The Victoria Department of Health and Human Services website has been updated to adapt to the new situation

    Meanwhile, Melbourne residents can now travel 15 miles from home and enjoy greater freedom in social activities and exercise
