Victoria Police Chief Shane Patton beat partygoers for violating the coronavirus restrictions as the state struggles through a wave of business.
“That kind of behavior is ridiculous,” he said.
“It’s an expensive night if, apart from the KFC, you’ve identified 16 breaches for that amount, that is, $ 26,000 that birthday party will cost them.”
“It’s a birthday party to remember. They will remember them for a long time. ‘
In total, 60 breaches were committed in the past 24 hours, including to four sex workers after a group of men were seen coming and going from an address.
“They (the sex workers) had a break when we were there. They have been infringed. ‘
“There is a range of totally unacceptable behavior that is occurring.”

Western Australia: 627

There are currently 1172 active cases in the state.
Melbourne and Mitchell Shire, in the north of the state, have since gone back to phase 3 lockdown and the state is fighting through a second wave.
Residents are only allowed to leave their home for four reasons, including: exercising, working, buying essentials, and getting medical help.
People who are locked are also encouraged to wear face masks if the safe distance of 1.5 meters cannot be maintained.
“Due to an abundance of caution, because it is relatively simple, we have to ask all Victorians when they are out of their house, and this mainly concerns the metropolis of Melbourne and Mitchell Shire … it is our request from you (to wear a mask), “said Prime Minister Daniel Andrews.
“It’s not mandatory, we’re just asking that if you can wear a mask you can’t distance yourself from, that’s exactly what we want you to do.
“That’s a relatively small contribution, but one that can really make a big difference.”
The state government has already ordered two million reusable masks and one million single-use masks for the communities to slow down the spread of the deadly virus.
