Melbourne Residents Cheer as City's Sixth COVID-19 Lockdown Lifts

Melbourne residents celebrated the end of the city’s sixth COVID-19 lockdown, in the early hours of Friday, October 22.

This footage uploaded to Twitter captures the sound of locals cheering just after midnight on Friday morning.

After more than 260 nights under stay-at-home orders, some restrictions were lifted from 11:59 pm local time on Thursday, after Victoria hit the key milestone of a 70 percent vaccination rate. Credit: @MrMG83414254 via Storyful
