Australia calls on the state of Victoria to lift night curfew

10 views

According to Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt, Australia’s Covid-19 hotspot state, Victoria, should consider lifting a night curfew if the decision was not made on health advice, as overall state pandemic deaths crossed 700.

Since his chief health officer told local radio that he had not recommended the night curfew in state capital Melbourne, Victorian officials are seeking to ward off criticism, although he was not against it from “a public health perspective.”

Hunt told Sky News he had been surprised at the news on the curfew. “If there is no medical basis for something, then obviously, that is then something entirely within the remit of the Victorian government to address and we’d encourage them to consider that in the coming days,” he said.
