  • Australia’s second-largest city, Victoria, showed a decline in new covid-19 infections today, Victoria state Premier Daniel Andrews said.

    There were 278 new infections and eight new deaths, down from around 700 daily at the peak of the outbreak. Daniels said the lower numbers indicate the lockdown restrictions in Melbourne are working but urged people to stay the course.

    Meanwhile, neighboring New South Wales state, which includes Australia’s largest city Sydney, recorded 12 new cases and one death.

    In the Asia-Pacific region South Korea has reported 56 new cases of coronavirus as new infection clusters continue to pop up across major cities. The figures announced by South Korea’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention brought the caseload to 14,770 infections, including 305 deaths.
