PM calls for lockdown restrictions to end

Victoria announced 11 new coronavirus infections on Monday but they are all close contacts of existing cases or people in quarantine.

Melbourne is set to emerge from a two-week lockdown on Thursday night, but with the outbreak relatively under control, there are calls for the state government to act sooner.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has joined the Australian Industry Group in calling for the lockdown to be lifted as soon as possible, particularly for parents with school children at home.

"Kids have lost enough time out of school over the course of the last 18 months and it's very important we get those kids back to school as soon as possible," he told reporters in Sydney on Monday.

"I am hopeful these restrictions in Victoria will be lifted as soon as possible. I would be urging that we move to lift those restrictions as soon as possible."

Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly said it was a matter for the Victorian government when to lift the lockdown, but its risks and benefits were being tracked on a daily basis.

He said it was possible lockdowns may still be needed in future even with a high rate of vaccination.

"We all hope that (lockdowns) will no longer be required into the future.”
