MELBOURNE – Australia’s second-most populous state of Victoria declared a state of disaster on Sunday and imposed a nightly curfew for the capital Melbourne as part of its harshest movement restrictions to date to contain a resurgent COVID-19.
On Sunday, Victoria reported 671 infections, one of its highest, and seven COVID-19 deaths.
The state of disaster gives Victoria police additional powers to ensure people are complying with public-health directions.
