Tomorrow's numbers might make this happen IMO:

It should have already happened, a couple of days, maybe even a week ago.

Daughter has friends in the lock down post codes tells me that people are coming and going as they please and moving in with others in different areas, so much for containment I've been in lock down from even before the beginning immune comprised
Going to the shops is quite a nightmare most are stupid

Same failures as back in March, too indecisive to respond so the only option left is to react.

The situation in those tower blocks is the scary part, those places are death traps at the best of times and should never have been built in Australia. Now that they've been locked down there needs to be an immediate transition to an evacuation operation to get all the residents dispersed to alternative accomodation before there is a disaster - probably an operation best suited to being led by the ADF with full martial law powers.

Sounds like newmarch house keep em locked in when nsw health admitted that elderly should of been dispersed to hospital hope these tower blocks don't end up on that same parth

The Italians and Spanish were dying in their homes I think the 10000 who won't get tested are scared
These tower blocks will be the same

Kangaroos in North Melbourne? What's next; wombats in Toorak?

ADL grams leaving MELBOURNE and more lockdowns is the virus now starting to get a hold again unfortunately.

Interesting to read from Doyle about the entirely believable (and predictable) comings and goings from locked down areas. I guess it won’t really make a difference if Victoria cannot even enforce the lockdown, but seriously, who gives notice of an area being locked down?

Chairman Dan, if you’re going to lock it down, lock it down on the spot, don’t give people the opportunity to pack and leave to another area you idiot. He should have seen this happening in Italy when the Italians foolishly announced they were going to lockdown Milan, only to see thousands of infected and potentially infected flee into southern Italy spreading corona to all points.

The other point here is the 4 reasons to be leaving the lockdown areas.... Do you have to prove that, or the utterance of one of them suffices???

Is there any benefit mandating that everyone needs to be tested, and those refusing are either fined $10,000, of cuffed and sent off to 14 day detention somewhere. Now I don't know (and its probably not) if the logistics exists to be able to do such a thing, but some years back the Bosnian refugees in some detention centre ended up trashing the place, so who knows whether hotels currently housing people in lockdown are currently experiencing the same issue??

I've said before, the stick for non compliance needs to be much bigger, and refusing a test should be seen as almost and admission of something to hide, and fined as such.
Civil liberties should take a back seat in pandemic situations. There's no Spock here - the needs of the few do not outweigh the needs of the many.

The news report I saw on Seven last had a reporter standing outside with quite a lot of traffic for a Saturday night in the background of the shot behind them.

I hope they were located in another non-lockdown suburb and simply standing outside for dramatic effect. Ten do that quite a lot in Adelaide, having a reporter do reports standing alongside a road anywhere within 10km of where some incident happened to distract from the fact their Adelaide bulletins are produced in Melbourne.

The tower block lockdown was handled this way, because the operation was handled by the professionals and they had a plan  that was ready to go the moment it was authorised.

The bigger picture in Victoria is still one of procrastination and Trumpist attempts to wish it away instead of doing the work.

Is there any benefit mandating that everyone needs to be tested, and those refusing are either fined $10,000, of cuffed and sent off to 14 day detention somewhere. Now I don't know (and its probably not) if the logistics exists to be able to do such a thing, but some years back the Bosnian refugees in some detention centre ended up trashing the place, so who knows whether hotels currently housing people in lockdown are currently experiencing the same issue??

The experience so far is that it varies according to the hotel.

There were windows smashed at a hotel in Sydney where quarantin-mates were held in poorly air conditioned rooms without opening windows and poor levels of support from NSW Health and the hotel.

In SA, selection of hotels for international arrivals has prioritised those with opening windows and there has been proactive cooperation between SA Health staff and hotel staff to organise enough entertainment to stop people going crazy. What do you know, it's all gone smoothly so far.

It just goes to show again that amateurs react and professionals respond.

If you are the AFL you make your own rules.
YM-Mundrabilla
If you're the NRL you make your own rules and then go ahead with breaking them anyway!

It’s very difficult for the people of Melbourne, and I think we in Adelaide ought to cut them a little slack.

I can see why a virus mostly controlled by decent hygiene has them beat, they live a toilet, it’s not as easy for them to maintain hygiene.

Yeah, hilarious. It wasn't that long ago that Adelaide was definitely Australia's third city, an industrial powerhouse. Now....? Overtaken by Brisbane in importance, then Perth, even Canberra, although smaller in population (how long before that changes???) definitely pulls more weight, has a bigger CBD and is a far more interesting city to visit than Adelaide. There's no question as to why, the place is reasonable as a large regional town, with a port to serve farmers, but its status as an important city has long gone. Nevermind, you're still ahead of Hobart, but even that place has been shooting ahead recently. Face it Aaron, Adelaide is a city of losers, going nowhere, doing nothing, who think toilet jokes are funny.

(At least that shows Adelaide is champion of something; D grade office space!)

But let's move back to the Covid 19. I don't know anybody who has had it. Nobody in my extensive family or in my work entourage, or my broad circle of friends. Hundreds of people that I get news from regularly and nobody has it nor knows anybody that has. Yet at the stroke of a pen a government can now lock down whole suburbs, stop people going about their daily business, stop them showing solidarity and friendliness with century-old gestures, and nobody raises an eyebrow. Makes you wonder.

Nobody you know or your extended network has it.
Surely that’s a good position to be in?

About time this happened, 127 cases is totally unacceptable.

It's going to be hell for Echuca-Moama, Albury-Wodonga, and other towns.

Why wait until tomorrow night? Police should be blocking the roads NOW and trucks already on their way out of the Grand Prix storage yard with loads of concrete barriers.
