In Melbourne, the capital of Victoria’s state with the highest number of cases in the country, residents were enjoying the first week of cafes, restaurateurs, rents and pubs that reopened to walk-in customers.
The city is just a mysterious case without a known source. There are 61 active cases pending across the state, down from 70 on Saturday.
State Deputy Premier James Merlino called Sunday’s zero figure “another great day for Victoria,” but on Tuesday urged Australia to exercise caution in advancing Australia’s most prestigious horse race, the Melbourne Cup, known as “a race that stops a nation”. . The people of Austral Australia traditionally gather in the morning or in private homes, to see a public holiday.
The race at Melbourne’s Flemington Race Course attracts crowds of more than 100,000 people, but will be held without fans this year due to a ban on public gatherings.
Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton urged Victorians to enjoy the cup, but continue to wear masks and follow guidelines on social distance.
“Most people in Melbourne know what to do,” Sutton said. “There will be a few people who can be a little more generous in their behavior.”
The new wave of infections in Europe shows how quickly coronaviruses can re-enter themselves, Sutton said.
“The situation that Europe is going through now is the result of not being able to reach this place where you can stay on top in very small numbers,” he said. “What we’ve created is very precious and we need to hold on to it.”
A new case of COVID-19 was reported in the western Australian state of Australia on Sunday, with a woman returning from abroad and a hotel quarantine.
