627 New Virus Cases, Eight Deaths and One in Four Not Isolating in Victoria on July 31

An alarming number of Victorians who have tested positive for COVID-19 are not staying home, with more than 100 referred to police, as the state recorded 627 more cases and another eight deaths.

Premier Daniel Andrews said Australian Defence Force personnel and public health officials did more than 500 visits to positive cases on July 30, but one in four were not home.

“There were more than 130 unsuccessful visits,” he said.

“There’ll be a multitude of reasons for that, but what I can confirm for you is that more than 100 cases have been referred to Victoria Police.”

The premier said there was no excuse for people who have tested positive not to be isolating.

“It is simply unacceptable for you to have this virus and not be at home,” he said.

The latest fatalities were two men in their 50s, two men aged in their 70s, three men in their 80s and one woman in her 70s. Four of the eight are linked to aged care homes.

The deaths take the state toll to 112 and the national figure to 197.

Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said workplace transmission was a significant factor in driving large case numbers, particularly those with a younger workforce who may not exhibit symptoms.

Sutton said while Victoria’s surge was disappointing, the lockdown was having an effect.

“We cannot open up with these numbers, we cannot open up with significantly less than these numbers.” , said聽the premier.

Andrews also said the $300 isolation payment had been made to 4200 workers awaiting test results and who face hardship for not going to work, at a cost of $1.26 million.

So far 12,600 businesses have received a $5000 grant, worth around $63 million in total.

Florida Governor Defends School Reopening: ‘I Would Absolutely Have My Kids in School’

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday continued to defend his decision to require public schools to reopen in August for in-person learning, saying he would “absolutely” send his own children back to classrooms if they were old enough. During a round-table meeting held at a school for special needs students, the republican governor restated the reasons why reopening Florida’s schools is necessary, including the difficulties of distance learning for special education students, the heavy burden on parents who have to earn a living while taking care of children, and low-income families that rely on school meals for nutrition. DeSantis moved on to say that although his children aren’t old enough, he would still feel comfortable sending them to school for in-person learning. “I would have no problem, and I would…
