COVID-19: Victorian lockdown likely to end on Thursday 10 June

James Merlino, acting Victorian Premier, has announced that the state is on track to end the current lockdown on Thursday.

He announced two new local cases, but linked to known clusters, so they will not railroad current plans to end the lockdown this week.

Although the current lockdown will end – providing there is no more adverse news beforehand – there may still be ongoing precautionary restrictions like mask wearing and limits on gatherings.

That weird unlinked Delta strain

Genomic sequencing has linked a returned traveller from Sri Lanka to the North Melbourne primary school outbreak as well as the family who went camping in NSW. So it’s looking like another break-out from hotel quarantine, with a positive test that occurred post quarantine.

“So what this does suggest is that there has been transmission either directly from person-to-person or indirectly via unidentified cases to the family and the community, or less likely perhaps the source of infection for both cases, for example from another traveller from where this gentleman came.”

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.
