Victoria records 3 local coronavirus cases overnight

There have been another three coronavirus cases diagnosed in Victoria overnight, as regional areas of the state prepare to emerge from lockdown.

All three infections are from community transmission, with no new cases recorded in hotel quarantine.

One of the new infections was reported late yesterday, as an 89-year-old man in aged care.


A massive amount of people came forward for testing around the state once again, with more than 57,000 test results received over the last 24 hours.

23,921 vaccine doses were administered as well.

Victorian authorities will reveal more details about the new cases in their update later today.

However, if none of the new cases were recorded in the state’s regional areas, those areas will be allowed to emerge from lockdown from midnight tonight.

The Greater Melbourne area will remain in a strict lockdown for another seven days.
