Beachgoers who appear to be flouting Victoria’s strict COVID -19 restrictions by packing on Melbourne beaches have been warned they are ‘not allowed’ to ‘risk everything’

Victoria Premier Dan Andrews has called on the Melburnians to hold out « a few more weeks » by expressing frustration with rule breakers endangering the state’s hard work, saying « no one is has the right « to act illegally

This comes as the state recorded eight new cases and three deaths in the 24 hours leading up to Saturday morning

M Andrews said he understood people were increasingly frustrated with lockdown restrictions, but the Victorians were risking what could be a better 2021 if they didn’t « hold » for a few more weeks.

« It is important that no one does anything by October 19 to revamp all that the Victorians have done and sacrificed over the past few months, » said Mr. Andrews

« If we don’t beat this second wave properly, if we don’t see it through for a few more weeks, then 2021 won’t be any different and won’t be better than 2020

« I don’t want this Everyone wants it to be done right We can’t let frustration get the best of us »

St Kilda Beach was visibly crowded on Friday afternoon as the town hit its hottest temperature in months

During his daily press conference on Saturday, Mr. Andrews said if 2021 was to be any different from 2020, people had to ‘stay the course’

« The scenes on the beaches at night are unacceptable No one has the right to break the rules and jeopardize everything decent and law-abiding Victorians have done, » said M Andrews

« Let’s do all we can to follow the rules, to beat this second wave, to see this and find normal COVID for Christmas and summer »

Dr Sutton said he was « angry » at the St Kilda scenes which he said was insulting to the people who had worked so hard to stop the spread

« It is an insult to all those who have put in efforts for months and months, for some people to put all our gains at risk, » he said

Dr Sutton has drawn attention to the second wave gripping Europe right now, sending countries back into lockdown

« Europe will wear masks for … three years We may move to a point where we don’t have to wear a mask all the time, » he said

« We are not there yet, but we are close We are heading in a very different – albeit fragile – direction towards Europe

« For every business that does tough things in St Kilda, for every family that hasn’t seen a loved one in months – come home, » he tweeted

With the temperature set to reach 28 degrees on Saturday, additional police officers will ensure COVID-19 rules are enforced

The second stage of Melbourne’s COVID-normal plan comes less than a week, which allowed people to spend two hours outside a day
