Australian state to deploy military to enforce isolation measures

World A- A A+

Australian Victoria State Premier Daniel Andrews said 500 military personnel will be deployed to the country's second-most populated state to bolster COVID-19 self-isolation orders, with anyone found in breach of those measures facing new fines of nearly A$5,000 ($3,559.00, €3,000). The only exemption will be for urgent medical care, EDNews.net reports citing Deutsche Welle.

"There is literally no reason for you to leave your home and if you were to leave your home and not be found there, you will have a very difficult time convincing Victoria police that you have a lawful reason," Andrews told reporters. Victoria earlier this week imposed a night curfew.
