Melbourne is deeply worried after 150 people who have tested positive for COVID-19 have found themselves violating lockout measures.
ADF and health officials performed more than 1100 door knocks yesterday, and while most people are doing the right thing, astonishingly, 150 people who tested positive for COVID-19 were not home when authorities knocked at their doors.
More than 200 fines have been released in the last 24 hours.
For those, 51 were for people not wearing face masks, 43 were for violations for curfew in Melbourne and 11 were at checkpoints for cars.
Concerns about Melbourne ‘s deadly second wave were accentuated by a study that showed that at the beginning of each shift one in five nurses had no access to protective equipment.
This comes in the last 24 hours when 139 health care staff have been screened coronavirus positively-bringing the number of the state to nearly 1000.
Strict lockdown steps are in place to avoid COVID-19 spreading as cases remain stubbornly high, with Victoria reporting 450 new infections yesterday and 11 victorians losing their lives, ranging from their 50s to their 90s.
