Sky News political editor Andrew Clennell said that there is an “anticipation” that the Victorian lockdown is likely to exceed the scheduled five-day lockdown period.
As the list of more than 100 exposed locations expanded to the area, the coronavirus outbreak in Victoria increased by about 30 cases on Saturday.
More infections are related to MCG, construction sites, a closed apartment complex and three independent schools, and the short-term spread has raised concerns among contact tracers.
Mr. Krennell said that Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews (Daniel Andrews) carried out a “short and severe lockdown” on Thursday night, which gave Victorians a “sigh of relief”.
But “the figures for the next three days” will determine whether the blockade will be extended.
