MELBOURNE: Victoria's acting premier, James Merlino, said at a briefing that 70 per cent of the traveller's close contacts have so far tested negative for the coronavirus. “But it is true to say that this remains a day-by-day proposition,” Merlino said.

Australia's Victoria state has reported five new local Covid-19 cases, including in a worker at a Melbourne aged care facility where not all of the residents have been vaccinated.

The infections on the third day of a week-long lockdown raise the total to 40 in the latest cluster, which started with a returning overseas traveller who tested positive after leaving a quarantine hotel.
