The Australian State of Victoria will enter lockdown for a third time in a bid to suppress an outbreak of the UK strain of coronavirus.
Officials found 13 new cases stemming from a quarantine worker who became infected at a Melbourne hotel this week.
The lockdown will begin on Friday midnight and end on Wednesday.
However, the government has said the Australian open tennis tournament would continue in the State’s Capital, Melbourne.
Spectators will be banned from attending the event from Saturday, which had previously allowed up to thirty thousand visitors a day.
