Heads up for another lockdown in Australia – cluster grows, announcement imminent

Local media in Australia reporting on the outbreak in Australia’s second-largest city of Melbourne:

  • ABC understands the Victorian COVID cluster has grown to around 25
  • Says this is likely to prompt to the state government to announce a lockdown

Via other sources:

  • 3 day lockdown seems to be the minimum
  • the announcement should come around 9.30/9.45am local time (2330/2345GMT)

Not a positive for the local economy but AUD unlikely to be moved much at all upon the expected announcement.
