Victoria has recorded 11 new COVID-19 cases overnight with two deaths, with Premier Daniel Andrews calling it “a great day.” He hinted at a revised roadmap.
The drop in new infections has raised the prospect of lockdown ending in Victoria soon.
Testing dropped to as low as 7,000 in the last one day.
Andrews urged vigilance and a willingness to hang tough, but the mood among his team of advisors appears optimistic.
“We are seeing these numbers come down. This strategy is working. All of us have to stay the course.
“If we do not stay the course, if we let our frustrations get the better of us, then there is an underlying fragility to this and that is just the nature of this virus.”
The rolling 14-day average in Melbourne has dropped to 34.4 and just 1.6 in regional Victoria.
Today’s total is the lowest number in almost three months, after the second wave surged through the state.
There are no new cases in Casey area where a family cluster now totals 43.
The total number of Australians who have died of COVID-19 has gone upto 851, with 763 of those coming from Victoria.
