Hello and welcome to the details of Australia's 'hot spot' state reports lowering new infections, may ease restrictions and now with the details
SYDNEY, Sept 2 — A second wave of infections in Australia's coronavirus hot spot, the state of Victoria, eased further today as authorities look to loosen lockdown restrictions that have shut large swathes of the state's economy.
Australia's second-most populous state reported 90 new coronavirus cases, its third straight day of double-digit new cases, indicating the strict lockdown measures are reducing the infection rate.
Last month daily new infections peaked at more than 700.
Melbourne, the state's capital and Australia's second-largest city, has entered its fourth week of a six-week lockdown with authorities scheduled to detail on Sunday the timetable for easing curbs.
Though strict restrictions have helped to contain the spread of the virus, it wreaked havoc on the economy with official data due later today expected to show the country has entered its first recession in three decades.
Australia has detected nearly 26,000 infections since the pandemic began, with Victoria accounting for about 75 per cent of those cases. The national death tally rose to 663 after Victoria reported six deaths in the last 24 hours.
