Victoria records 2 new coronavirus cases, 2 more deaths

The Covid-free streak is over for Melbourne, with two new coronavirus cases diagnosed overnight.

The rolling 14 day average is at 2.7 within Metro Melbourne, while regional Victoria’s average now sits at zero.

It comes after Melbourne eased more restrictions overnight, allowing hospitality venues and retail to reopen from midnight.


Scores of people lined up at Kmart, and visited bars, to enjoy their first taste of freedom.

Unfortunately, there was also another two deaths reported, bringing the state’s death toll to 819.

The national toll is now at 907.

The Victorian Premier and health authorities will provide further information about the new cases later this morning.
