Six men await trial in Moscow and Buenos Aires, charged with operating one of the craziest, most ambitious narco-trafficking rings in history.

Individual and group protests have been rising as Melbourne struggles under a tough Stage Four lockdown that has been in place since August 2.

Mounting pressure has been put on Premier Daniel Andrews to re-evaluate his four-step road out of coronavirus lockdown by business leaders, the Federal Government, small business and ordinary people who are feeling the strain of losing their income.

Premier Andrews, however, has defended his tough measures saying they are the only way to be sure that the state does not ease restrictions too soon, resulting in lockdowns having to be re-introduced.

The tight Melbourne lockdown will not ease significantly until Step Two is reached, which will allow more than 100,000 workers to go back to work in construction, manufacturing, and maintenance.

Victoria's government is aiming at September 28, however progress to Step Two depends on improvement in the 14-day rolling average of new case numbers.

The rolling average has been falling dramatically, reaching 56.9 on Sunday down from 120.8 two weeks previously.

Victoria recorded 35 new cases of coronavirus on Monday bringing the total number of cases to 19,872 with 729 deaths, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

There are 1075 active infections of which 122 patients are in hospital and 12 in intensive care.

Of the 1075 active infections, the vast bulk - 1019 cases - are in Melbourne's metropolitan area, subject to the Stage Four restrictions.

The Stage Four restrictions were eased slightly on Monday as Step One on the road to recovery was implemented.

The Step One changes were minor: one extra hour of outdoors time, one less hour of curfew and allowing people who live alone to socialise with one other person.
