A resident of Melbourne, Australia described how “hundreds” of police surrounded tower blocks to prevent people from leaving their homes immediately after the government announced a strict new coronavirus lockdown.

Under the new rules, which were introduced in response to a spike in COVID-19 across the state of Victoria, residents were told, “Where you slept last night is where you’ll need to stay for the next six weeks.”

A curfew has been imposed between the hours of 8pm and 5am, while only one person is allowed to leave their house per day to pick up “essential” items and must stay within 5km of their residence.

Writing for the website, a Melbourne resident described the draconian nature of how the lockdown was enforced as police immediately descended on residential areas to prevent people from going outside.
