Five days straight of no new coronavirus cases or deaths in Victoria

It’s been another day of no new cases and no new deaths in Victoria, despite it being a week since restrictions eased within the city.

It’s now been five days of ‘doughnuts’, meaning zero new infections and zero deaths.

The great milestone hasn’t happened since the pandemic began back at the start of 2020.


The rolling 14 day average within Melbourne has now dropped to 1.7.

Just two cases still have unknown sources, while yesterday the amount of active cases dropped below 40 for the first time since June.

Health authorities will provide a further update later this morning.

It comes as New South Wales Minister prepare to meet to discuss their border with Victoria.
