Victoria recorded no new coronavirus cases for a second consecutive day on 27 October; the state last did so in early March. The future easing of lockdown restrictions under the government’s revised COVID-19 roadmap plan will now be based on public health advice rather than a certain number of days with no new cases. However, despite the gradual re-opening of the state’s economy, Premier Daniel Andrews has cautioned that face masks are likely to remain mandatory until at least the end of 2020. Meanwhile, New South Wales has recorded 12 new COVID-19 cases, including two that were locally-acquired, while two new cases have been diagnosed in Western Australia.
