The Australian city of Melbourne is extending Covid-19 restrictions for a second week.

The state of Victoria is dealing with an increase in cases of the variant first discovered in India, the B1.617.2, now known as Delta.

Restrictions will remain in place until at least 10th June.

Outside of the city, some measures will be relaxed, although not fully.

Positive cases of Covid-19 are still low, but Australia has been strict in stamping out surges.
