The 3051 boundary is along Victoria Street across the street from Queen Victoria Market. This is what we call the north side of the CBD. "Since last Tuesday, the number of active cases in Mexico City has more than quadrupled. It currently leads Moreland with 51 cases and ranks third in the entire municipality.

He "does not rule out" further lockdowns.

The Australian medical community urges the whole of Australia to stop unblocking! Said the Victorian outbreak proves that the pandemic is not over
The Australian Association of Physicians (AMA) has called on Australia to suspend exposure to the new crown restrictions after the new confirmed cases and the outbreak in Melbourne. AMA Chairman Tony Bartone said that the 108 new confirmed cases in Victoria on Saturday were a "clear reminder" that the pandemic was not over yet.
He said: "These new outbreaks are sending strong signals that other states should reconsider the pace of relaxing the new crown restrictions until Melbourne's community transmission is controlled to avoid similar situations in their own communities." "Restoring bars in a hurry. Before the noisy crowds or large weddings and parties, Australia should stop and act safely until the Melbourne epidemic hot spot is brought under control again."
Dr Barton said: "We can and must do better. Australians cannot rush back to the pre-epidemic state. We have to work harder to protect ourselves and each other. This virus will stay with us for months and we must Continue to observe physical distance restrictions and hygiene protection measures instead of complacency."
Deputy Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly announced that there were 94 new confirmed cases across Australia on Sunday, of which 74 were confirmed in Victoria. Except for Victoria, all other positive cases came from returning travelers in quarantined hotels.

The Melbourne epidemic is hard to control! Experts recommend learning from China!
With the rapid increase in the number of new coronavirus cases in Victoria, an expert said that the government should consider some radical measures in China to control the epidemic.
Due to the recurrence of the new crown epidemic, the Victorian government has extended the state of emergency until July 7, Canceled some of the original restrictions and relaxation policies, and imposed lockdowns on homes and businesses in 10 postal districts in Melbourne. The government announced yesterday thatTwo other postal districts and nine public housing buildings will also be blocked.
Governor Daniel Andrews said yesterday that “the speed of transmission in these postal districts is accelerating, and the only way to deal with this situation is to implement stricter restrictions.” The government previously pointed out that “new cases related to family and family transmission. The number continues to increase, which is worrying."
Professor Mary-Louise McLaws of the University of New South Wales said the authorities need to consider more stringent measures, including discussing how to treat patients who test positive. She said, “In many Australian families, it’s not easy to isolate the family from other members.” “We need to consider whether we need to move them from home to another place so that they will not continue to spread in family gatherings. virus."
Of the more than 80 outbreaks in Victoria, many have focused on families. In an outbreak in Roxburgh Park, 8 people in 28 families were infected. In another cluster outbreak in North Melbourne, the number of infections has increased to 30, while in Keilor Downs, the number of infections in 8 households was 21.
Last month, Daniel Andrews stated that family gatherings are responsible for the surge in new cases.
Professor McLoughs believes that other states should also consider isolating infected persons from their families, but this decision should be based on data on family structure and dynamics. She said, “The authorities believe that this time the virus is spreading through family clusters, just like in China. Therefore, the Chinese authorities isolate family members who have been infected with the virus from other family members so that other people will not get the virus again.”
Maclaus also believes that another measure that should be considered is wearing a mask. Although the WHO has been slow in recommending the use of masks, last month it changed its recommendations to support the use of masks in areas where the spread is widespread and it is difficult to maintain distances, such as in public transportation, shops and other places with heavy traffic.
Professor McLoughs said, “If people want to go to work, they should wear face masks or masks so that the virus does not have any chance.”
"This virus is very cunning, it hides, and people show symptoms only after two days. Up to 18% of people never show any symptoms, or they never think they are uncomfortable." McLaus believes this time It seems that a "perfect storm" is causing the current problems in Victoria.
