Australia's covid-19 hotspot of Victoria State reported two new cases today (28) after posting no infections in the previous two days as the state capital, Melbourne, emerged from more than three months of a hard lockdown.

Restaurants and cafes in Melbourne, home to 5 million people, can now reopen, and limits on social gatherings at homes have been eased, allowing two adults and dependents from one house to visit another household.
