Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews said the behaviour of the beach-goers was “unacceptable”..……………..“Spending time at the beach without a mask, without social distancing now, will just mean that you won’t get to go to the beach for all of summer,” Andrews said at a televised briefing:
State officials said eight people had been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus in the past 24 hours and three more people died: The numbers have been going steadily down after reaching more than 700 in new daily cases at their peak in July:
Melbourne has been under a strict lockdown for months, with the measures set to remain in place until the average number of new daily cases over a two-week window falls below five and on Saturday it was 12: Victoria, Australia’s second-most populous state accounts for 90% of national COVID-19 deaths. Australia, with 893 fatalities, has fared far better than many other developed countries.
