Victoria adds two local transmission cases, the governor says Victoria is in a favorable state of unlocking | Chinatown, Australia

Release your eyes, put on headphones, and listen~!
[Melbourne Newspaper] Two cases of local transmission were reported on the fourth day of the Victorian lockdown, and two confirmed cases were reported by hotel travelers in isolation and quarantine.The Governor of Victoria reiterated that Victoria’s work to end the lockdown will be “on the right track” and that changes are expected to be made on Wednesday night.The two locally transmitted cases were close family contacts of the confirmed case at Holiday Inn at Melbourne Airport.The cluster of cases in the hotel has increased to 19 cases.So far, all active virus cases detected in the community are related to the cluster and are considered to be infected with the more infectious British strain.Fearing that this strain, named B117, could spread faster than other variants, Victoria began a lockdown at 11:59 pm last Friday. The date for lifting the lockdown was originally scheduled at 11:59 pm this Wednesday.The cluster outbreak began with a family of three returning from abroad.After the family returned, they were quarantined at the hotel.Victoria's Chief Health Officer Sutton once said that the number of hotel clusters may continue to increase reasonably in the next few days.Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said on Monday that Victoria was "in a good position" to end the blockade at 11pm on Wednesday as originally planned.Andrew said on Tuesday that although it cannot be confirmed now, Victoria is in a favorable position due to the small number of cases and the final workload, but the specific situation will not be known until sometime on Wednesday.Victoria will wait as long as possible in order to have as much data as possible. It is not clear what the next step will look like. It all depends on public health advice.According to Sutton’s previous instructions, the Victorian blockade may continue until February 59, when the current state of emergency instructions in Victoria ends.However, the authorities reiterated that instructions are usually revoked before they expire.Sutton previously stated that "five days is enough."The spread of the virus from the hotel to the community has once again focused the community on the Victorian hotel isolation system. ABC reported that the plan did not follow the infection control standards set by the Personal Protective Equipment Task Force, which have been applied to other health systems in the state.In addition, in view of the emergence of new cases, the Department of Health has updated the list of hot spots, and Broadmeadows has added two other high-risk locations.Anyone who visits the BonBon Bakery store in Broadmeadows Central between 2:26 and 2:9 on February 12th, or who has been to Sacca's Fruit World between 30:12 and 45:12 pm, needs to be tested and quarantined 30 days.The west side of the shopping center was also identified as the Tier 1 exposure site between 14:12 noon and 15:1 pm, which means that people who have been there during this period need to monitor symptoms closely.In addition, after the staff were confirmed to be weakly positive, three psychiatric wards in three Melbourne hospitals were sealed off and the staff were isolated.The three-year-old daughter of the weakly positive case also contracted the virus, resulting in the isolation of more than 15 people associated with two daycare centers on Monday.Both of them attended a family gathering in Coburg on February 3. A worker who tested false negative at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Melbourne Airport also attended the gathering.In addition, due to the flooding of the building, on Tuesday, the Holiday Inn Hotel in Flinders St, which was confirmed to be a "hot spot hotel" for positive return passengers, had to evacuate the confirmed patients and staff. These people will be moved to before the completion of repair Pullman Albert Park hotel. The Pullman Albert Park Hotel was used to isolate persons related to the Australian Open, and was later used to increase the isolation capacity of the hotel.It is understood that the sprinkler system of this hotel in Melbourne's central business district was activated, causing four of the eight floors of the hotel to be flooded.A spokesperson for the Victorian Quarantine Service said in a statement that strict infection prevention and control measures were taken during the transfer process to ensure the health and safety of residents, employees and the community.Epidemiology Professor Blakely said that health professionals need to be extra careful to ensure that positive patients will not infect the public when they are transferred.After the outbreak related to the Holiday Inn Melbourne Airport, Melbourne is currently under lockdown and the hotel was once used as a hotel isolation area.

【本报墨尔本讯】维州封锁第四天报告两例本地传播病例,隔离检疫酒店旅客另外报告两例确诊病例。维州州长重申,维州结束封锁的工作将「步入正轨」,有望在周三晚上做出改变。

两例本地传播病例是墨尔本机场Holiday Inn确诊病例的家庭密切接触者。该酒店集群病例已经增至19例。

到目前为止,在社区中检测到的所有活跃病毒病例都与该集群有关,都被认为是感染了更具感染力的英国毒株。由於担心这种名为B117的毒株比其他变种传播速度更快,维州上周五晚上11时59分开始封锁,封锁解除日期原定於本周三晚上11时59分。

此次集群爆发始於国外返回的一家三口。该家庭返回後在该酒店隔离检疫。

维州首席卫生官萨顿曾说,该酒店集群数未来几天可能仍会合理增加。

维州州长安德鲁(Daniel Andrews)本周一曾表示,维州对按原计划周三晚上11时59结束封锁「处於有利位置」。

安德鲁周二表示,虽然现在还无法确认,不过,由於病例数和最终工作量很少,维州处於有利位置,但具体情况要等到周三的某个时候才能知道。维州将等待尽可能长的时间,以便拥有尽可能多的数据,下一步将是什麽样子目前尚不清楚,一切取决於公共卫生建议。

而按照萨顿此前的指示,维州封锁可能会持续到2月26日,即当前维州紧急指示状态结束的时候。

不过,当局重申,指示通常在到期之前被撤销。

萨顿此前曾表示「五天就足够了」。

而病毒从旅馆到社区的传播让社会再次把关注点放到维州酒店隔离体系上。

ABC报道说,该计划并未遵循个人防护装备工作队制定的感染控制标准,而该标准已应用於该州其他卫生系统。

另外,鉴於新病例的出现,卫生厅更新热点地点名单,Broadmeadows增加了另外两个高风险场所。任何在2月9日中午12时30分至12时45分访问Broadmeadows Central的BonBon Bakery店铺,或在中午12时30分至下午1时之间去过Sacca’s Fruit World的人都需要接受检测并隔离14天。

而该购物中心西侧在中午12时15分和下午1时15分之间也被确定为为Tier 3暴露地点,这意味着在此期间去过该地的人都需要密切监控症状。

另外,在工作人员被确认为弱阳性後,墨尔本三所医院的三个精神病房封锁,工作人员被隔离。该弱阳性病例的的三岁女儿也感染了该病毒,导致周一与两个日托中心相关的一百多人被隔离。

两人都在2月6日参加了在Coburg举办的家庭聚会活动,一名墨尔本机场Holiday Inn酒店检测假阴性的工人也参加了这一聚会。

另外,由於建筑物遭水浸,周二,被确认为接受阳性返回旅客「热点酒店」的Flinders St的Holiday Inn酒店已确诊患者和工作人员不得不进行疏散,维修完成前,这些人将被搬到Pullman Albert Park酒店。

Pullman Albert Park酒店曾被用於隔离澳网相关人员,之後被用於增加酒店隔离能力。

据了解,这家位於墨尔本中心商务区的酒店喷淋系统被启动,导致酒店八层楼中四层楼被水浸。

维州检疫局发言人发表声明声明中说,在转移过程中采取严格的感染预防和控制措施,以确保居民、员工和社区的健康与安全。

流行病学教授布雷克利表示,健康专家需要格外小心,确保阳性患者不会在转移时感染公众。

与墨尔本机场假日酒店相关的疫情爆发後,墨尔本目前处於封锁状态,该酒店曾被用作酒店隔离区。(子力)
