Victoria records 10 new local COVID-19 cases ahead of announcement on lockdown lifting

Victoria has reported 10 new local COVID-19 cases as authorities prepare to cautiously lift the state’s lockdown while wary of another outbreak of the highly infectious Delta variant.

For a third straight day, all the new locally acquired cases on Tuesday have been linked to Victoria’s current outbreaks and were in isolation for their entire infectious period.

There are now 190 infections linked to the outbreak, which originated from NSW.

More than 24,000 test results were received in the 24 hours to midnight on Tuesday, while 15,677 vaccine doses were administered at state-run sites during the same period.
