July 4, 2020 Updated: July 4, 2020

Victoria has recorded 108 new COVID-19 cases, forcing the lockdown of nine public housing towers and two more Melbourne postcodes.

Premier Daniel Andrews said on July 4 the public housing crackdown would affect 3000 people and would require an unprecedented level of help from police.

“There will be no one allowed in…and no one allowed out,” he said.

Residents in the Flemington and Kensington public housing units who are some of the city’s most vulnerable will receive food deliveries and medical, drug and alcohol support.

There are 509 active cases with 25 people in hospital and three in intensive care.

The extra Melbourne postcodes to be locked down from 11:59 pm tonight are 3031 and 3051.
