Victoria recorded seven new coronavirus cases on 25 October, including six that are linked to an outbreak in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. Premier Daniel Andrews says an easing of lockdown restrictions for the retail and hospitality sectors will be delayed until about 1,000 coronavirus tests in the northern suburbs have been processed. He has stressed that it is a "cautious pause" and the government still hopes to relax the restrictions within days. Andrews’ backdown has been criticised by business leaders and Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Melbourne’s 14-day rolling average of new cases has fallen to 4.6.
