Australia’s Victoria Reports Mounting Death Toll During Lockdown
Australia’s Victoria state reported a mounting death toll from the coronavirus, weeks after a surge in cases sent Melbourne into a second lockdown.
Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews reported six deaths, all of them connected to aged-care facilities, and 300 new cases on Friday. That took total deaths in the state to 55.
The number of new infections is down from 403 yesterday and Wednesday’s record of 484.
