Local COVID-19 cases in Australia’s Victoria fall for third straight day

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Australia’s Victoria state on Monday said locally acquired cases of COVID-19 slightly eased for the third straight day as the state’s near seven million residents wait if a hard lockdown will end as planned on Tuesday night.

Thirteen locally acquired cases were detected in Australia’s second most populous state, compared with 16 a day earlier, as total cases in the latest outbreak topped 70 in a week.

All new local cases are linked, the state health department said.
