Melbourne business owners are clenching their fists as the local state government announces new restrictions

The second most populated city in Australia is again dealing with a coronavirus outbreak, with five cases so far confirmed by authorities.

New restrictions will come into force from 6pm on Tuesday, May 25.

Those restrictions include gatherings of no more than five people in a private home. Public gatherings are also limited to 30. Face masks will also be required indoors for those aged 12 years and older.

Schools and workplaces will remain open. 

State Government officials confirmed genomic sequencing for the Melbourne northern suburbs outbreak shows it is “closely linked” to a case detected weeks ago. It’s also understood the virus made its way back into the state of Victoria via a person travelling from South Australia.

Melbourne last year went through one of the harshest lockdowns imposed throughout the entire world.

Thousands lost their jobs and hundreds of businesses struggled to survive after what was supposed to be a three-week lockdown, dragged on for 112 days.

Melbourne businesses have contacted Ticker News to express their concern with the latest restrictions imposed by the Victorian State Government, but are hopeful the cluster can be managed and business won’t be disrupted.

FAA uncovers Boeing quality control issues

Published

on

The Federal Aviation Administration disclosed concerning findings from its 737 MAX production audit involving Boeing and supplier Spirit AeroSystems.

The audit uncovered multiple instances where the companies allegedly failed to adhere to manufacturing quality control standards.

The FAA highlighted significant “non-compliance issues” within Boeing’s manufacturing processes, including concerns related to parts handling, storage, and product control.

While a summary of the audit findings has been shared with the companies involved, the details have not been made public due to the ongoing nature of the investigation.

Following a mid-air emergency on January 5 involving a new Alaska Airlines 737 MAX 9, where a door plug was lost at 16,000 feet, the FAA initiated the audit.

This incident prompted a temporary grounding of the MAX 9 and raised questions about the aircraft’s safety protocols.

New acquisition

Boeing, in response to these revelations, has been in discussions to acquire Spirit AeroSystems.

However, the company has not provided immediate comment regarding the audit findings.

FAA Administrator Mike Whitaker emphasized the necessity for Boeing to implement comprehensive corrective measures to address what he termed as “systemic quality-control issues.”

Whitaker stated that Boeing must commit to substantial improvements, with clear milestones and expectations set forth by the FAA.
