VICTORIA: Australia's Victoria state said new locally acquired cases of Covid-19 rose slightly as state capital, Melbourne, prepares to come out of a two-week hard lockdown to contain its latest virus outbreak.

Four new locally acquired cases were reported, versus one case a day earlier, taking the total infections in the latest outbreak to 90, according to Reuters.

Melbourne will exit the lockdown as planned on Thursday night, although some restrictions on travel and gatherings would likely remain for another week.
