However, the people of Melbourne got excited after hearing that the lockdown will end. The long 111-day lockdown is going to end this Wednesday. People of the second-largest city of Australia got a huge relief after hearing the news.
From shop owners to students, all people suffered a huge pause in their life. They are finally ready to resume their life. After Wednesday, the lift of lockdown will allow 3200 retail stores, 1000 beauty salons to be open again. Also, 5800 cafes, 800 pubs will be open again with more than 1,80,000 jobs. While the lockdown is ending, some things are still mandatory.
Such as wearing masks and maintaining distance. The residents of the city will not be able to travel. Traveling more than 25 km from their home is restricted. Most of the people are still doing their work from home. It helps to improve the situation by avoiding crowds and stopping the spread. Many eateries and retails shops have not survived the lockdown very well. The number of empty stalls and shops have increased in the city. But there are many shops and restaurants that survived it.
They kept their business in motion. As eating is no longer restricted, some restaurants in the city are fully booked for days. Many people have booked restaurant seats from 1 month earlier. After sitting at home for 111 days, people are excited to get out and enjoy a coffee. It is fun for people that lockdown is ending. But the next few weeks are going to be hard.
People in the city going out in the streets will create a crowd. The increased crowd can cause the virus to spread. However, it will be for the first few days. Then people will act normal again. The situation was very hard for people in this city. The rest of the cities of Australia have successfully contained the second wave. Melbourne failed to contain it and increased the restrictions. Now, things are under control and businesses are ready to start in the city. Since June 9, the city has not spent a day without a new case for a long time. With zero COVID cases, the lockdown lifted in the city.
