Yoshiro Mori has resigned as president of the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee after sexist comments implied women talk too much

It comes after Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews declared a five-day lockdown following the breakout of the Holiday Inn

The decision will be reviewed if the Victorian lockdown is lifted as planned but the restrictions are only lifted on the recommendation of the Tasmanian health authorities

All travelers from Victoria to Tasmania are required to self-isolate in their home or hotel quarantine for 14 days

“I would hope that this is a temporary measure. We will know what happens in Victoria in the next five days,” said Tasmanian Prime Minister Peter Gutwein

Mr Gutwein said there is new advice for people who have been at Tullamarine Airport in Melbourne after a Brunetti Cafe employee tested positive for coronavirus

Anyone who died on 9 February is in the fourth terminal, must isolate and call the Public Health Hotline at 1800 671 738

Anyone who was on the 7th or 8 Located in an area of ​​the airport February should monitor his health and call public health if symptoms occur

“With regard to Tullamarine, we currently intend not to close this airport to Tasmania as it is a major transportation hub However, we will continue to keep this under a public health notice, “he said

However, he said that anyone who was at the airport on Sunday or Monday had to monitor themselves for symptoms

“We are close to a weekend The last thing we want is someone who was in Terminal 4 of this airport on that day that actually goes out tonight and infects hundreds of people

“The loss of Victorian travelers will have an impact There are no two options I would say closing the state would have an even bigger impact””

Mark Veitch, director of public health for Tasmania, said the obligation to wear masks at Tullamarine Airport reduced the risks somewhat, but anyone who passed through the fourth terminal on Tuesday must be quarantined

“So that was not just the time when Brunetti was a risk, it was all day because we really need to be sure that there wasn’t anyone who happened to be infected when they walked through the food court” he said

“There are probably around 800-1000 people who could be among the people who pulled through Terminal Four that day

“This is a much more transmissible strain of the virus. If this becomes established, it is important to take the steps Victoria will be taking very quickly over the next five days to contain the infection”

Tasmania remains on track to deliver the first doses of the Pfizer vaccine to staff at Royal Hobart Hospital later this month By mid-April, 14000 people in priority groups will be vaccinated

“Tasmanians have worked so hard to get this under control it’s important that in due time we roll up our sleeves and get the vaccine,” said the Prime Minister
