Pressure is mounting on the Andrews government to lock down declared hotspots across Victoria in order to contain the further spread of COVID-19.
Sky News Political Editor Andrew Clennell said there was increasing concern in federal ranks about the handling of the situation in Victoria.
“The view is that the situation is getting out of control in Victoria with this outbreak and that some serious action should be considered.”
Mr Clennell said he understood Prime Minister Scott Morrison addressed the issue with Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews and offered whatever resources were needed to take serious action.
Mr Clennell said stay-at-home orders would see people forced home from work and would also see businesses shut down in affected suburbs.
“I really think that we’re headed this way, there’s no way around it,” he said.
“It’s preferable to reintroducing restrictions across the whole of Victoria isn’t it.”

Victoria suffers SEVENTY-FIVE new cases of coronavirus: Huge spike in Melbourne as clusters spiral out of control - and entire suburbs could soon be locked down .
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews today confirmed health authorities are considering putting coronavirus hotspots in lockdown after the state recorded another 49 new COVID-19 Melbourne's coronavirus hotspot locations could be locked down locally if Victoria 's outbreak worsens.
Victoria has been carrying out a testing blitz in ten suburbs across Melbourne - and warned they could lock neighbourhoods down if COVID-19 infection rates keep rising. Last Monday, police had a blitz where they checked on people supposedly quarantining at home.
Another proposal that the government is considering is to lock down only the Covid-19 hotspots , and not extend the nationwide lockdown . The health ministry has identified at least 20 virus hotspots across the country and another 22 potential hotspots .
Then, as the disease and the lockdown spread, they could be sensed in the sky above our heads, the air in our lungs and even the ground beneath our feet. Environmental campaigners say that is a dangerous misconception. The picture is different across our unequal world.
