At the close, the Shanghai Composite index was down 1.87% to 3,292.59, the lowest closing mark for the index since 30 July. It was the 4th straight day of losses for the Shanghai index, and its steepest 1-day drop since 24 July 24. The blue-chip CSI300 index fell 2.11%.

The Nikkei dropped 0.50% to 23,089.95, while the broader Topix shed 0.42% to 1,609.74, with both the indexes falling from their 6-month highs marked last Thursday.

Australian shares finished higher Monday on prospects of 1st batches of a C-19 vaccine by early next year outweighed the extension of virus-driven lockdowns in Melbourne.
