Coronavirus live news: New curbs in Dublin as French cases and deaths jump again

Back in Australia, three people who tested positive for Covid-19 in a cluster in the Melbourne suburb of Casey have been hospitalised. There are 34 cases in the cluster, with authorities saying the households breached Melbourne’s lockdown restrictions.

As contact tracers work to contain the outbreak, anti-lockdown protesters are preparing to defy restrictions.

Premier Daniel Andrews has urged anti-lockdown protesters not to gather following reports of more planned protests in the city on Saturday.

Travel caps on international arrivals to Australia will be eased slightly, with New South Wales preparing to allow an additional 500 returned travellers into hotel quarantine per week. Thousands of Australians are stranded overseas due to the caps.

NSW will take an extra 500 arrivals from 27 September. Queensland and Western Australia will start with 200 each from that date, before increasing to up to 500 arrivals on 4 and 11 October respectively.
