    Coronavirus Australia live update: record 484 new Victoria Covid-19 cases announced in premier Dan Andrews' press conference

    Chief health officer Brett Sutton said Victoria is “at a really, really challenging phase of the pandemic”.

    One of the reasons for that is numbers fatigue.

    "We’re all a bit inured to the numbers. If we had a number close to 500 in March or April, we would have been staying in our bedrooms and not leaving the house."

    Sutton said the R-number (the average number of people each infectious person spreads it to) has come down from 1.5 to 1.2. To see a reduction in numbers, the R-number needs to be below one.

    Other models show that it might be even lower. My suspicion is it’s still above one.

    "We can’t necessarily expect numbers to go down. I think that will be an even greater challenge in days ahead. That means that we’re going to look at 500-600 cases per day. I absolutely don’t want us to go there. So we have to reinforce the things that we know will make a difference. And that is the very simple principles of isolation and quarantine".

    Sutton said people needed to get tested at the first sign of symptoms.

    "You’re actually most infectious in the first couple of days of your illness. So the very beginning of that runny nose or sore throat or cough or low-grade fever is when you’re most infectious. You’re probably not that infectious after seven days. So getting tested very early on and isolating right at the beginning is a really key action.

    And I think they’re things that are not being done so well through this wave as for our first wave. So I think we’re in pretty tough times if we’re going to turn this around, but we do know what works, and I know that Victorians have stepped up in so many ways, including all the masks that I see now, including the fact that a lot of mobility data suggests that people are absolutely staying home. But there are lots of people who are still moving about and the most critical ones to reach are those who’ve got those early symptoms who need to be at home getting that test and waiting for that result."

    Behrouz Boochani granted refugee status in New Zealand

    A Kurdish investigative journalist in his homeland, Iran, Boochani was persecuted for his reporting and his support for Kurdish rights, and fled for Australia in 2013.

    He arrived by boat on Christmas Island, an Australian territory in the Indian Ocean, on 23 July, the first place he reached where he could claim asylum.

    He was forcibly transferred to Manus Island just over a month later, to a detention facility that was later found to be illegal. He would spend 2,269 days held by Australia’s offshore processing regime.

    After a protracted court case, he and nearly 2,000 others were compensated for their unlawful detention.

    Over the six years he was held on Manus Island and in Port Moresby, Boochani witnessed friends shot, stabbed
    and murdered by guards on Manus Island, saw others die through medical neglect, and watched others descend into mental anguish and suicide.

    Over the course of six years held within Australia’s offshore processing regime in Papua New Guinea, Boochani emerged as the voice of the Manus Island detention centre and a tireless campaigner for the rights of those detained by Australia.

    He has
    written extensively for the Guardian on life in detention and won Australia’s richest literary prize for his book, No Friend But the Mountains, which is being made into a film.

    He secured a temporary visa to fly to New Zealand in November last year as a guest at a writers’ festival, and lodged a claim for protection when he arrived.

    Boochani has now been granted a one-year work visa, and can apply for permanent residency in New Zealand, a pathway to citizenship. He has lived in Christchurch since leaving Papua New Guinea.

    Úc không muốn ‘làm tổn thương’ quan hệ với Trung Quốc

    Hoa Kỳ và đồng minh thân cận Úc họp cấp cao bàn về Trung Quốc và nhất trí cần phải duy trì trật tự thế giới dựa trên luật lệ, nhưng Ngoại trưởng Úc nhấn mạnh quan hệ của Canberra với Bắc Kinh là quan trọng và rằng Úc không có ý định làm tổn thương mối quan hệ này.

    Ngoại trưởng Mỹ Mike Pompeo và Bộ trưởng Quốc phòng Hoa Kỳ Mark Esper tổ chức hai ngày họp tại Washington với người tương nhiệm phía Úc.

    Tại cuộc họp báo chung hôm 28/7, ông Pompeo ca ngợi Úc đã đứng lên chống lại áp lực từ Trung Quốc và tuyên bố Washington và Canberra sẽ tiếp tục hợp tác để tái khẳng định nguyên tắc thượng tôn pháp luật tại Biển Đông, nơi Trung Quốc đang lấn lướt trong các tuyên bố chủ quyền.

    Ngoại trưởng Úc Marise Payne cho hay Mỹ và Úc chia sẻ cam kết về thượng tôn pháp luật và tái khẳng định quyết tâm buộc các nước vi phạm phải chịu trách nhiệm, chẳng hạn như việc Trung Quốc làm xói mòn các quyền tự do ở Hong Kong.

    Bà Payne nói hai bên cũng nhất trí lập nhóm làm việc để theo dõi và đáp ứng trước các thông tin sai lệch độc hại và tìm cách mở rộng hợp tác về dịch bệnh, kể cả sự tiếp cận với vaccine.

    Cùng lúc, bà nhấn mạnh Úc không đồng ý mọi chuyện với Bắc Kinh hoặc với Mỹ.

    “Quan hệ chúng tôi có với Trung Quốc quan trọng và chúng tôi không có ý định làm tổn thương quan hệ đó.” “Chúng tôi cũng không có ý định làm những chuyện đi ngược lại với lợi ích của chúng tôi.”

    Ngoại trưởng Úc nói Úc và Mỹ có cùng lợi ích trong một khu vực Châu Á-Thái Bình Dương tự do, thịnh vượng, bảo toàn và nhìn chung đứng về cùng một phía trong các vấn đề kể cả vấn đề Trung Quốc.

    All of metropolitan Sydney declared a hotspot by Queensland government

    Greater Sydney has been declared a hotspot by the Queensland Government effective from 1am Saturday, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced.
    New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she had no prior warning of the decision.
    "There has been more outbreaks in other parts of Greater Sydney and that will now become a COVID declared hotspot taking effect from 1am on Saturday," Ms Palaszczuk said.
    "We have done this to ensure we give notice to Queenslanders who may want to return home.
    "We are in extraordinary times at the moment and we have to do everything we can.
    "Queenslanders should not be travelling to Sydney."
    Returning Queenslanders will be required to self-fund two weeks hotel quarantine when the new measures come into effect.
    Ms Palaszczuk said Greater Sydney encompassed 34 local government areas – including the three already declared hotspots of Liverpool, Campbelltown and Fairfield.
    A list of the affected locations was released by the Queensland government early this afternoon and includes the Central Coast and Blue Mountains.
    "We are monitoring the situation in New South Wales every single day," Ms Palaszczuk said.
    "We do not want a second wave here. We do not want widespread community transmission."
    Overnight 19 new COVID-19 cases were recorded in New South Wales.
    It comes as two new cases of COVID-19 were recorded in Queensland with two 19-year-old women testing positive after returning from interstate.
    "They both travelled together recently, including returning to Brisbane from Melbourne on the 21 July via Sydney," Health Minister Steven Miles said.
    "They travelled on flights VA 863 and VA 977".
    A criminal investigation is underway into how the women returned to the state without entering mandatory quarantine.
    NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she had no warning of the Queensland border restrictions.
    "It would have been nice if she told me, but that's fine," Ms Berejiklian said.
    "I note that the cases they have had up there announced today are all from Victoria.
    "In the end it hurts the smaller states when they don't interact with New South Wales."
    Ms Palaszczuk said she was "furious" the two teenagers allegedly gave authorities "misleading information".
    "We had a hard border closure with Victoria and what is extremely disappointing is these two people went to Victoria," she said.
    "That's what they did and now we have to act swiftly and quickly.
    "We have been preparing for these scenarios. We have done this before and we will do it again."
    "Because of the negligent actions of these two we now have to do a lot of contact tracing and it's going to be an inconvenience to a lot of people.
    "The next 24 to 48 hours is very crucial here in Queensland. We need to be making sure that any of those people who may have come into contact with the two confirmed cases need to go into quarantine and also need to be tested."
    Chief Health Officer Jeannette Young said the women had not been isolating and had been travelling within Logan and Brisbane's southside communities for eight days while infectious.
    The two women live in separate homes in Logan and Acacia Ridge, one of them is a cleaner at a local private school.
    Aged care homes in the Metro South health district have been advised to go into lockdown, as a precautionary measure.
    Extensive contact tracing is underway with health authorities saying the women may have visited shopping centres and churches in the local area.

    OUTCOME mới là quan trọng:
    This week, the United States and Australia signed a new "statement of principles" to expand defence ties and ramp up cooperation on the back of the growing threat of a rising China, as a part of the annual Australia-United States Ministerial Consultation (AUSMIN) talks

    Vế sau mới là quan trọng:

    Trích dẫn:
    During the press conference, Australia's Minister for Foreign Affairs, Marise Payne, stressed the importance of maintaining a relationship with China, but said Canberra would not make decisions that could jeopardise Australia's national interest.

    Tự chủ, độc lập, đứng trên đôi chân chính mình:
    "We make our own decisions, our own judgments in the Australian national interest, about upholding our security, our prosperity, and our values," Senator Payne said.

    Tái bút:

    Úc và Mỹ là đồng minh và là bạn, khác với VN CS là đàn em kèo dưới phục tùng đàn anh Trung Cộng. Đàn anh hô gì đàn em cũng dạ thưa xoắn xuýt phải phải.

    Chính sách của nước Úc xưa giờ vẫn rõ ràng, hỗ trợ và song hành cùng đồng minh (lịch sử trăm năm nay chứng minh điều đó), với một vị thế tự chủ, độc lập, đứng trên đôi chân của mình.

    Bài truyền thông ở trên tóm một nửa ý của của bà Ngoại Trưởng Úc, lấy làm tiêu đề. Một nửa ý sau mới là quan trọng. Mấy anh cộng khựa đọc xớn xac cái tiêu đề thôi chắc thấy đẹp lòng quá sá. Không đơn giản khi không mà được ngồi vào chiếc ghế của một nhà ngoại giao chính khách tầm cỡ quốc tế như bà Ngoại trưởng Úc.

    Inner peace is the key:
    if you have inner peace, the external problems do not affect your deep sense of peace and tranquility...
    without this inner peace, no matter how comfortable your life is materially, you may still be worried, disturbed, or unhappy because of circumstances.

    Coronavirus: Victoria declares state of disaster after spike in cases

    The Australian state of Victoria has declared a state of disaster and imposed new lockdown measures after a surge in coronavirus infections.

    Under the new rules, which came into effect at 18:00 (08:00 GMT), residents of the state capital Melbourne are subject to a night-time curfew.

    There will be further restrictions on residents' ability to leave home.

    Australia has been more successful than many other countries in tackling Covid-19, but cases are rising in Victoria.

    The state - Australia's second most populous state - now accounts for many of the country's new infections in recent weeks, prompting the return of lockdown restrictions in early July.

    But on Sunday Premier Daniel Andrews said the measures were working but too slowly. "We must go harder. It's the only way we'll get to the other side of this," he told reporters.

    The new rules will remain in place until at least 13 September, Mr Andrews added.

    On Sunday, Victoria reported 671 new coronavirus cases and seven deaths. Those increases brought the totals to 11,557 infections and 123 deaths.
    What are the new restrictions?

    The night-time curfew is being implemented across Melbourne from 20:00 to 05:00.

    The only valid reasons for leaving home during these hours will be work, medical care or care-giving.

    Melbourne residents will only be allowed to shop and exercise within 5km (three miles) of their home. Exercise outside of the home will only be allowed for one hour at a time.

    Only one person per household is allowed to shop for essentials at a time.

    All students across the state are returning to home-based learning and childcare centres are closed.

    Restrictions will also be tightened across regional Victoria from Thursday, with restaurants, cafes, bars and gyms closing from 23:59 on Wednesday.

    To ensure these rules are observed, police will be given additional powers, Mr Andrews said.

    "We have got to limit the amount of movement, therefore limiting the amount of transmission of this virus. We have to clamp down on this," Mr Andrews said.

    Why did Victoria become the epicentre of Australia's outbreak?

    The country has recorded about 17,000 infections and 200 deaths so far - with the majority of these in Victoria.

    Initially officials felt optimistic about containing Covid-19, with lockdowns and mandatory quarantines for people entering the country.

    For months, most cases were coming from travellers returning from overseas, but the spike in Melbourne has proved to be a major setback.

    Local transmissions have become a key source of infections, putting authorities on the back foot.

    In early July about 300,000 people were ordered back into lockdown amid a military-assisted operation to "ring-fence" 10 areas at the centre of the outbreak.

    Then, about five million residents of Melbourne were told to stay at home for six weeks.

    Initially, Mr Andrews pinpointed the origin of many infections to security guards who reportedly broke lockdown rules while overseeing hotel quarantines.

    Health experts say the relaxation of rules, complacency on social distancing and sheer bad luck have all contributed to Victoria's rise in cases.

    Now Mr Andrews says the current rate of community transmission - including "mystery cases" that cannot be traced back to work or home - is far too high.

    "And they tell us, based on the current number, cases might begin to drop off, not in days or weeks, but months," Mr Andrews said. "That's not something I'm willing to accept."
