Victoria records 55 new COVID cases & 8 deaths; NSW reports nine cases

There have been eight new deaths from COVID-19 reported since yesterday, all in Victoria. Five of these deaths occurred prior to yesterday. These include two men in their 60s, two men in their 80s, one woman in her 90s, and three men in their 90s. Six of today’s eight deaths are linked to known outbreaks in aged care facilities.

The average daily case number for regional Victoria has dropped below five. This is one of the criteria to be met before the state can progress to the third step of eased restrictions on the DHHS roadmap. However, there are further criteria which the regions are yet to meet and progressing to the third step is subject to public health advice.
