Australia's Victoria state has reported no locally acquired cases of Covid-19 for the first time in nearly three weeks as state capital Melbourne came out of a snap two-week lockdown after an outbreak that has seen about 90 cases since 24 May.

Melbourne exited the lockdown last night but some restrictions on travel and gathering will remain, including a rule that would force the city's five million residents to stay within 25km of their homes.

Neighbouring New South Wales (NSW) state and Queensland, meanwhile, are on virus alert after an infected woman and her husband travelled from Victoria through several country towns in both states.
