States will defy Scott Morrison and lock if coronavirus cases explode within 48 hours

The government would discuss the ‘phase three’ restrictions in a national cabinet meeting on Wednesday evening.

No one knows exactly what the next phase will hold – but experts have told Daily Mail Australia that more extreme measures in the social distance field are inevitable.

‘Distance can be more extreme and restrictions can be made stricter. View this space, ”said Stephen Leeder, professor of public health at the University of Sydney.

Schools

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he wants schools to remain open so that key workers don’t have to worry about childcare and children can continue their education.

He said the health risk of keeping schools open was low because young people are not vulnerable to coronavirus – but some teachers fear they are “canned food” and want to close the gates for their own safety.

Paul Komesaroff, a professor of medicine at Monash University, told the Daily Mail Australia that closing the schools would be a logical step.

“The next thing we need to do is close schools and universities,” he said. “But that’s a big step because it can affect whether or not parents start working.”

In Norway and the UK, schools have been kept open to the children of essential workers such as doctors and nurses and something similar could be arranged in Australia.

Some states are already closing schools by bringing out vacations.

Tasmania’s school period ends four days earlier, so teachers can prepare online teaching materials.

Victoria also closed her schools early and sent three million students home three days before the Easter holiday that begins in the state on Friday.

Meanwhile, the NSW Teachers Federation is calling for a planned transition to online learning in all public schools, as visitor numbers continue to decline due to fears of coronavirus.

Enterprises

On Tuesday evening, Morrison announced a series of companies that are expected to close their doors, leaving thousands of Australians out of work.

Personal service companies ‘where there is a lot of contact’, such as beauty treatment, solarium, waxing, nail studios and tattoo shops will have to close.

But barbers and hairdressers are allowed to stay open, as are food markets and shopping centers, except the food courts.

These companies could be in the line of fire if the government moves toward a lock.

In an extreme scenario, only critical companies such as petrol stations, pharmacies and supermarkets should remain open.

Practice

Mr Morrison announced on Tuesday that social sports such as large groups of people playing football in a park are prohibited.

But he said boot camps and personal training should continue with less than 10 people.

Yoga and barre sessions, as well as spinning and other practice sessions, can continue as long as they also adhere to the rule of 10 people or less.

These types of training classes can be next on the chopping block.

Professor Komesaroff said Australia could eventually lead other countries and ban outdoor group exercises.

“We could see rules where you can only leave your house to run. Or maybe we are not even walked like in China. ‘

He added, “I personally don’t see a problem with someone running alone on the street, because there is no risk of transfer if they are not in a group.”

Shopping

Supermarkets always stay open because people have to buy food.

However, limits can be imposed on the number of people allowed to enter a supermarket at the same time.

Stores could also require customers to better observe social distances by limiting the number of people in aisles and leaving them two meters apart.

In Italy, for example, shoppers are forced to wait in ‘socially distant’ queues to go to the supermarket.

“Supermarkets must have a social distance,” said Professor Komesaroff.

“They can limit the number of people and have them two meters apart when they stand in line. Such a process is inevitable, “he said.

Professor Komesaroff said such measures would slow the spread of the coronavirus.

“We are at the beginning of a catastrophic resurgence and we know that the number of infections will increase drastically,” he warned.

As soon as healthcare overwhelms, the death rate will increase dramatically. I don’t think we can be overconfident. ‘

He said the requirement that people show a letter to the police explaining why they left the house is likely to be considered in the final phase of action – not phase three.
