Australia's Victoria set to further ease COVID measures

Victoria, Australia's second-most-populous state, is set to further ease coronavirus restrictions soon after reporting only one new locally transmitted infection for the second day in a row.

"My expectation is by later in the week, we will be in a position to announce further easing of restrictions for regional Victoria and ... for metropolitan Melbourne," Victoria's Deputy Premier James Merlino stated.

The state re-entered a lockdown last month after recording a spike in new COVID-19 cases.
