Australia saw no coronavirus deaths for a third straight day on Saturday. But its main city of Melbourne currently facing a lockdown because of some cases are still being reported.
The southeastern state of Victoria reported 14 new cases, taking the two-week average up slightly to 9.5. That is double the target of <5 set for relaxing curbs in its capital of Melbourne in eight days’ time.
The state government statement clarified that it would lift up all restrictions once the number of cases met the target.
It will be on leaving home, as well as allowing public gatherings of up to 10 people, some household visits, outdoor dining and the re-opening of all shops.
