NSW Health Secretary Brad Hazzard says « This New Year has to be a lot quieter than the previous New Year » as gatherings are restricted due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Mr Hazzard said « more cases » will be announced at 11am when he urged people to stick to the five-person limit at house parties tonight.

Groups of 30 people are allowed to party outside, although access to prime vantage points in Sydney’s business district is limited.

« The smaller the groups that gather, the safer we will be, » Hazzard told the Today Show.

He said it would be safe for people to attend the SCG test match next week as it was an open air event in the open air.

« Certainly we will continue to review as we move forward, but I would think our public health team would not have approved it if they weren’t satisfied with the existing COVID safety plans. « 

Epidemiologist Professor Tony Blakely believes the Victorian government will tighten restrictions on some parts of Melbourne ahead of today’s New Years Eve celebrations after three new cases of coronavirus were discovered in the community yesterday.

« I expect there will be aggravation in some areas of Melbourne tonight, which is very unfortunate, but we know you are dealing with this virus, » he said.

The professor at the University of Melbourne told radio station 3AW that he expected the three cases would prove to be linked – and that he would be more concerned if they weren’t.

« It’s almost unlikely, very, very, very unlikely that they would have been made in Victoria. You would probably have come from NSW.

« The fact that there are three cases is worrying. I expect these cases would be related somehow. It seems unlikely that three will suddenly show up. « 

Professor Blakely also anticipates the numbers will climb above ten in the next few days before subsiding if all goes well.

He said Australia would continue to see outbreaks because hotel quarantine programs would never be perfect.

« This virus invasion will keep happening until we are vaccinated enough, » he said.

« When we get our first 100. 000 doses of vaccine, they should be fully applied to border control quarantine, airport and flight personnel to further prevent the arrival of people from countries with high levels of infection. « 

University of Sydney infectious disease pediatrician Professor Robert Booy is confident Melbourne can handle the situation after three cases occurred last night in the city’s southeast and east.

The three cases are women in Mentone, Hallam, and Mitcham with possible exposure sites, including the Fountain Gate shopping mall on Boxing Day.

« The numbers are really small. You have experts who now have the experience you need. You will do a good job, « Professor Booy told the Today Show.

Peter Thurtell, assistant superintendent of NSW Police, says it is up to every person to understand how the New Year’s Eve health instructions apply to them.

Outdoor gatherings can have 30 people and indoor gatherings can have a household plus five visitors (including children). .

« The Sydney CBD area is closed in all respects, but we will still have 3000 additional police officers in the greater Sydney area to ensure people are following the health order and that it is usually safe. « The community like every other year, » Thurtell told Sunrise.

« If we need to go to the residents and check that people are following the health order, we will. « . « 

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered millions more people to live under the strictest COVID-19 restrictions as of Thursday to counter a new variant of the virus that is spreading at « sheer pace » across the country.

The government, which had reported an additional 981 deaths from the virus in the past 24 hours, said three quarters of the English population would be on the top tier of restrictions as of Thursday, covering 44. 1 million people.

In the UK, case numbers have risen sharply in the past two weeks, partly due to a new burden that is up to 70 percent more transferable than the original.

« We have to face the reality that with the sheer speed of the proliferation of this new variant, we now have to take even tougher measures in some areas, » Johnson said at a press conference.

He urged people to stay home on Thursday nights and avoid public New Years Eve celebrations.

The government also said secondary schools would delay and postpone their reopening after Christmas to allow tests to be taken, while some elementary schools in the hardest hit areas will not be open to all students.

Your game against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur was canceled on Wednesday evening local time due to positive cases.

The game is the third in England’s top division to be postponed due to COVID-19 cases after Newcastle United’s trip to Aston Villa was canceled earlier this month. Monday’s game between Everton and Manchester City was also canned.

Celebrity Dannii Minogue’s successful offer to quarantine a private home after arriving from California sparked a backlash at the Queensland Prime Minister’s office when Australians returned after paying for hotel quarantine.

The correspondence also shows that the Queensland government’s decision created confusion among law enforcement officers tasked with enforcing the state’s tough quarantine regime.

The exceptional case for 14-day quarantine at home, not in a hotel, was highlighted in July when judge The Masked Singer and her 10-year-old son Ethan quarantined at home on the Gold Coast.

More than 460 pages of partially or fully edited documents were made available to the Brisbane Times under the right to information, revealing details of the approval process for Minogue’s request.

According to media reports that revealed the deal, Prime Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk’s office faced a backlash and asked for the help of the Ministry of Health in responding.

« Why are everyone else rejected and a famous and / or wealthy Australian allowed to be at home? » One person wrote to the prime minister.

« What exactly is the COVID Safe Plan? Why can’t the general public have access to this permit? »

There will only be one fireworks display in 2021 – ???? A seven-minute midnight affair that Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian has repeatedly urged to watch from home. There will also be a pass system in place that will attempt to keep the number of some of the best viewpoints in the city to a minimum. Elsewhere, councils will introduce roadblocks and parking closings.

Further restrictions were implemented on Wednesday to ensure that no super spreader event occurs.
