All good signs for Victoria this morning, with the state now going a week straight of no new coronavirus cases or deaths.
It’s the first time that’s happened since the start of the virus, as Melbourne nears the two week mark of eased restrictions.
The rolling 14 day average has dropped again to just 1.3 cases, and two cases still have unknown sources.

As of yesterday, there were only just 20 infections still considered active.
It comes as officials prepare to lift Melbourne’s ‘ring of steel’ this weekend, allowing Melbournians to freely travel into regional areas.
While the entire state is on count down for November 23, when New South Wales will open up their southern border.
Victorian health officials will provide more information later this morning.
