- Tomorrow Melbourne will have spent 235 days in lockdown during the pandemic
- Argentinian capital Buenos Aires spent 234 days in lockdown, the current record
- Anger over the Melbourne’s extended, sixth lockdown led to public disorder
Melbourne will set a depressing world record tomorrow with its 235th day in lockdown since the Covid pandemic began.
No city in the world has been subject to stay-at-home orders longer, with Wednesday equaling Argentinian capital Buenos Aires.
The longsuffering city won’t just eclipse that record, it will smash it as Premier Daniel Andrews’ roadmap to freedom don’t end lockdown until October 26.
Melbourne has little chance of an early reprieve with another 628 Covid cases recorded on Wednesday, the most since August 1 last year.
Three people also lost their lives after testing positive for Covid.
The new cases were diagnosed from 60,829 tests and 43,056 vaccine doses were administered on Tuesday.
More to come.
