Virus outbreak closes Australian border for the first time in 100 years

Australian border
An increasing number of cases of infection in the state of Victoria are now causing the neighboring state of New South Wales to close the border.

Australia’s most populous state, New South Wales, will close its border to neighboring Victoria indefinitely on Tuesday following the resurgence of coronary infection.

The Australian media writes ABC News on the night of Monday Danish time.

It is closed to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The border between the two states was last closed back in 1919 100 years ago during the Spanish sick. On Tuesday, it will happen again after the number of coronas infected has recently begun to rise in Victoria’s capital, Melbourne.

On Monday, authorities registered 127 new cases of coronavirus in the state.

It is the highest number in a single day since the corona pandemic began.

Authorities also recorded a single coronary-related death. It is the first in Australia in more than two weeks.

At a press conference Monday, Victoria’s Prime Minister Daniel Andrews calls the border closure “the wise decision” at this time.

Due to the increasing number of infected people in Melbourne, the city authorities have ordered around 300,000 citizens in more than 30 suburbs to stay home in the last week in an effort to contain the infection.
