Victoria records 108 coronavirus infections in the second biggest spike since the pandemic began – with an immediate, unprecedented and total lockdown for public housing towers

  • Victoria reports 108 coronavirus infections in second biggest spike ever
  • Only bigger jump in daily totals was on March 28, when 111 cases were reported 

Victoria has reported 108 new coronavirus infections in the second biggest spike in daily positive tests since the pandemic began as further lockdowns are announced.

Two more post codes will go into lockdown from 11.59pm tonight and nine public housing towers in the post codes will be subjected to ‘total lockdown’ immediately.  

A ‘total lockdown’ is a first for Australia during the pandemic and Premier Daniel Andrews said it will affect approximately 3000 residents.    

The residents will be unable to leave their homes for ‘at least’ five days, Mr Andrews told reporters.  

The state has only reported a bigger spike once before, with 111 coronavirus infections on March 28, during the height of the pandemic. 

Already 36 Melbourne suburbs are in localised lockdowns after massive outbreaks in the city’s northern and western suburbs.  

It comes amid growing fears the pandemic will easily spread around the country from the nation’s second biggest city. 

Already on Saturday traveller from Melbourne on board an XPT train was detained after suffering COVID-19 like symptoms. 

It comes as two Kmart stores, in Barkly Square, Brunswick, and another in Footscray closed after staff members tested positive on Saturday. 

Both discount variety stores are being closed for deep cleaning.
