Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews has approached the state as wastewater samples from a regional city recording traces of coronavirus

The rehearsals that took place on 29 December from Lakes Entrance have resulted in the need to test people in that area with symptoms

The unexpected result means that more samples are being taken from the entrance area of ​​the lakes

Victoria’s test boss Jeroen Weimar said early information indicated a potential window of exposure between the ages of 17 and 19th December down

“We always knew there would be cases and clusters,” Andrews, who is currently on vacation, posted on Facebook on Thursday

“We have plans and systems to cope with exactly this scenario – and these are already in full swing

“I know this will be hard to take The Victorians have been through a lot and sacrificed so much this year

Andrews spoke out when the state recorded eight locally acquired cases in less than 24 hours

These cases, which first appeared on Wednesday night, ended a 60-day streak with no infections for Victoria

Anyone who comes back to Victoria from anywhere in NSW on Friday must be tested and isolated for 14 days

Acting Prime Minister Jacinta Allan apologized for closing the border but said Victorians living in NSW should not be surprised

“We sent a very strong message for almost a week and a half. We advise people to think very carefully about their trip to NSW,” Ms. Allan said on Thursday

“These tough decisions are about protecting the community, protecting and keeping the number of cases down, and doing whatever we can to secure the profits we’ve made over the course of 2020”

Masks are also mandatory indoors, and the number of visitors to Victorian homes has dropped from 30 to 15, she said

When a second cluster was confirmed in Sydney on Wednesday, NSW Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian said 50 percent capacity at SCG is safer than people gathering at home

Australian chief medical officer Paul Kelly said he would advise his elderly cricket-tragic family members not to take the test, but had no major problems with the game in Sydney
