Via The Australian:
A meeting is underway between Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews and his senior ministers, to sign off on what is expected to be an easing of the state’s five day lockdown from 11.59pm on Wednesday evening.
The Holiday Inn cluster, which sparked the lockdown on Friday, has not extended beyond Holiday Inn workers, residents or their immediate close contacts, meaning all those within the cluster would have been in isolation regardless of the lockdown of more than 6.5 million people.
Following the meeting, which began at 8am, Mr Andrews is expected to address the media, before a sitting of state parliament’s Legislative Assembly begins at midday.
Fingers crossed. There are no new cases today.
