Governments all over the world are on high-alert about the new Covid-19 cases. 

Starting 31 January, the Perth metropolitan area and the Peel and South-West regions in Western Australia are now under a total lockdown for a duration of five days where the residents are only able to go out to buy essentials, exercise or attend to work that can’t be done at home. This full lockdown is due to a security guard in a quarantine hospital testing positive for a highly contagious variant of Covid-19, reported CNN. This case is the first case reported in the span of 10 months.

During the full lockdown, most businesses are closed along with schools, places of worship, and entertainment centres. It is said that the lockdown affects the lives of two million people in Western Australia.

However, an uncontrollable bushfire has razed about 30 homes in Perth on 2 February, reported CNA. On 3 February, it was reported that the bushfires are still ongoing as they are currently experiencing hot and dry weather conditions.

The number of homes destroyed has increased to 59. Authorities have said that fire evacuation orders are prioritised over Covid-19 lockdown rules. They also expect to be fighting the fire for the next three to five days as rain is only expected to fall during the weekend.
