But the state’s top health official voiced optimism that a partial lockdown of five million people, now in its third week, was working.Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said modeling showed “today should be the peak” even if the number of new cases continues to fluctuate and new daily records could yet be set.The number of daily new cases has passed the March peak of 459 at least three times in the last week, according to data compiled by AFP.Sutton indicated any future increase would likely be driven by closely monitored outbreaks at care facilities for the elderly. Australia on Monday posted its highest number of new coronavirus cases since the pandemic began, even as officials expressed hope outbreaks in locked-down Melbourne may have peaked.A day after Australia reported its highest daily death toll, authorities confirmed at least 549 new COVID-19 infections -— almost entirely driven by an outbreak in the southeastern state of Victoria.Authorities admitted a second wave of clusters in Melbourne was taking longer to suppress than hoped. Topics : Australia had dodged the worst ravages of the pandemic, logging around 15,000 cases in total — fewer than many hard-hit countries see in one day.But the second outbreak is still proving deadly, with the nation’s death toll rising to 161 on Monday.”The outbreaks are really volatile,” Sutton said pointing to some virulent clusters. “In aged care settings the numbers can increase very significantly in a very short period of time.”Officials around the country are eyeing the situation in Victoria nervously, as neighboring New South Wales monitors several clusters sparked by a Melbourne traveller to Sydney earlier this month.”Whilst we are holding the line … we only have to tragically look at what is happening in Victoria to realize that could be us in a few weeks,” New South Wales premier Gladys Berejiklian said.Almost all of New South Wales’ cases have been traced to a specific source or cluster, making management much easier.Nevertheless the chief minister of the Northern Territory, which like most of Australia has effectively suppressed the virus, delayed plans to open travel with Sydney until at least late August.”In recent weeks I think the entire nation got a reality check, any hopes that we’d be through this crisis in a few short months have been dashed,” Michael Gunner told media in Darwin.

Arsenal’s youngsters look bright (Picture: Getty Images)Kieran Tierney has also impressed since making the switch from Celtic last year, but, Robson admitted Saka is the young Arsenal star that has shone the brightest.‘The one that’s impressed me most of the young players is Saka,’ the ex-Gunner told ESPN.‘I think he’s versatile in where he can play, which is not always a bonus, because he gets moved from one place to another, we’ve seen him play at left-wing back, wide right. ‘I would say Tierney looks to be a very good player, certainly going forward, he’s got lots of energy, I think he’s still got to work on the defensive side of the game, which we talk about a lot with full-backs these days.

If you thought you smelled smoke in the air on Saturday, you were not imagining things, nor were you alone.Palm Beach County Fire Rescue’s Captain Albert Borroto issued a statement Saturday morning that it all originated in the Everglades.“There are no active brush fires currently in the county. This smell of smoke is coming from fires outside the county and it is being pushed in by the weather front that was predicted to move in this weekend,” Borroto said.Improvement is expected through mid-morning as daytime heating will increase the wind which will help the atmosphere mix and disperse the smoke more easily. pic.twitter.com/tcVq4TmxKj— NWS Miami (@NWSMiami) May 9, 2020 However, officials added that the weekend smoke was unrelated to several wildfires that have been burning in Florida’s Panhandle since last Monday.The Five Mile Swamp fire in Santa Rosa County burned through more than 2,000 acres and destroyed at least 17 homes, according to the Florida Forest Service.Rather, the reason for Saturday’s smoky air was due to the Moon Fish Wildfire that was discovered on Thursday at the southeast corner of Big Cypress National Preserve and close to the Everglades National Park boundary.According to a news release from Laurie Humphrey, Big Cypress’ lead park ranger, the fire was “human caused,” a truck fire. The person was cited, she said.By Friday evening, the Moon Fish Wildfire was covering about 12,181 acres, and was burning through sawgrass and cypress as aerial and ground crews tried to contain it.The National Weather Service also said smoke from fires in the Everglades could impact visibility over portions of South Florida during the early part of the weekend.
