Melbourne emerges from lockdown as Fiji bunkers down

Melburnians are now free to leave their homes (within a 25km radius…) as the 2-week lockdown lifted overnight – just put your mask on if you’re going outside… As for yesterday’s update, and investigation is underway into the source of 4 new local infections from a single household. And there’s no further information on how the Delta (Indian) variant spread into the community. NSW and Queensland are also on high alert after a Melbourne couple drove to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast without an exemption. Meanwhile, Fiji is bracing for a nationwide lockdown as case numbers surge, pushing its health system to breaking point. The nation had no cases for a year until April this year, with the current outbreak linked to the dangerous Delta strain.
