Australia's Victoria continues steady downward trend in COVID-19 cases

SYDNEY, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Australia’s coronavirus hot spot of Victoria on Monday reported two deaths from COVID-19 and 11 cases, continuing a steady downward trend in daily cases and putting the state on course to ease more restrictions.

Victoria, Australia’s second most populous state, on Sunday reported five deaths from the virus and 14 new cases, its lowest rise in daily infections in three months.

A hard lockdown in the city of Melbourne has brought daily coronavirus cases down to double digits after it touched highs of 700 in early August. (Reporting by Renju Jose; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
