Four new locally-acquired COVID-19 cases have been reported in Victoria in the last 24 hours. They include a resident and a nurse at an aged-care facility that has reported two previous infections; both of these cases will be included in the case numbers for 7 June. Meanwhile, health authorities are hopeful that the northern suburbs outbreak that prompted the latest lockdown in Melbourne has been contained, as all of the initial close contacts of people in the cluster are no longer required to self-isolate. However, deputy chief health officer Allen Cheng has downplayed the prospect of the lockdown ending ahead of schedule; he say attention has shifted to the West Melbourne cluster, which now comprises 10 people with the more infectious Delta variant of COVID-19. There are 85 active cases in Victoria, including six new cases in hotel quarantine.
