AUSTRALIA NEWS: Australian Victoria reduces summer ‘safe Covid limits’

From midnight on Sunday, up to 100 people will be able to attend public gatherings such as weddings, with one-person rule rules for the remaining two square meters in the area, while 50% of office workers will be able to return to work in Jan. 11, up from 25% now, said the premier.

The Australian state of Victoria reduced Covid-19 restrictions on Sunday after the country’s pandemic hit 37 days without a new coronavirus infection, heading into the “Covid-safe” holiday season.

From midnight on Sunday, up to 100 people will be able to attend public gatherings such as weddings, with one-person rule rules for the remaining two square meters in the area, while 50% of office workers will be able to return to work in Jan. 11, up from 25% now, said the premier.

Masks will remain mandatory in indoor areas and on public and public transportation, he said.

Public health concerns have eased after two travelers returning from Germany, passing through detention in Sydney to head straight to Melbourne, returned from negative Covid-19 tests.

All passengers on a domestic flight on Saturday afternoon between the two cities and other flight attendants must remain separated until the results of the second test arrive on Monday, the health official said.

Australia recorded 7 new cases in one night, with all travelers returning.

The rest of the world has already released the coronavirus with strong anti-retroviral measures, especially in Victoria, the second most populous country, which in early August infected 700 daily diseases.

This comes at a time when Reuters’s global infection rate has risen to more than 65.58 million people, while more than 1.5 million people have died, and as the United States continues to set a one-day record of new infections.
