Melbourne is today in its 235th day of shutdown since the pandemic began – officially making it the city to have endured the world’s longest lockdown.

If the city re-opens on October 26th at 70 per cent fully vaccinated coverage as forecast, it will mean Melbourne’s lockdown will be 267 days total.

That will see it surpass the lockdown lengths endured by other cities: Buenos Aires by 22 days, Dublin by 40 days and London by 60 days.

Sydney’s lockdown in contrast is 100 days shorter than Melbourne’s based on its planned October 18th reopening but restriction relief there could come one week earlier based on the current New South Wales rollout pace.
