Covid-19 lockdown has been extended by Australian authorities in Victoria state despite of drop in fresh cases of Coronavirus.
Victoria state Premier Daniel Andrews said lockdown rules would not be lifted as cases were still being detected in the community, promising more details would be provided soon.
”It would be perhaps a few days of sunshine and then there is a very high chance that we’d be back in lockdown again. That’s what I’m trying to avoid,” said Andrews in explaining why the lockdown would not be lifted as scheduled.
Victoria, the country’s second most populous state which includes Melbourne, on Monday reported 13 locally acquired cases, down from 16 a day earlier. All new local cases are linked.
