CANBERRA, May 20 (Xinhua) -- South Australia's state government has fast-tracked the easing of coronavirus restrictions.

Premier Steven Marshall announced on Wednesday morning that cafes and restaurants will be allowed to reopen and serve up to 10 patrons indoors and a further 10 outdoors from Friday.

Pubs will reopen from June 5 for the Queen's Birthday long weekend, three days earlier than previously planned.

"We know that it would be great for regional South Australia. We know it would be great for businesses in metropolitan Adelaide."

South Australia is the only Australian state with zero active cases of COVID-19.

Greg Hunt, the Federal Health Minister, told reporters on Wednesday morning that there had been 7,071 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Australia as of 7:00 a.m. local time, an increase of 11 in 24 hours. Enditem
