Evening Report: ASX Shrugs Off Covid-19 Concerns To Snap 2-Day Losing Streak

Investors focussed on the positive today with the ASX 200 lifting 45 points or 0.74% to 6051 and snapping its two day losing streak. This is despite the growing concerns surrounding record covid-19 cases in Victoria and growing clusters in NSW. Travel stocks & shopping centre operators fell as a result but those losses were offset by gains for miners, tech and healthcare names.
