Melbourne to lockdown for 5 days from Thursday
Australia's second-largest city will lockdown for five days from Thursday night due to growing COVID-19 clusters.
The news came after officials announced on Wednesday that Australia's largest city, Sydney, will remain in lockdown for five weeks.
Health authorities are concerned by how quickly the delta variant is spreading in a vulnerable Australian population in which fewer than 13% of adults are fully vaccinated.
