Victoria records 5 new coronavirus cases, as night time curfew is scrapped

It’s been months since Victoria has seen a daily infection rate this low, recording just five new cases overnight.

There hasn’t been five new cases since June 12, a good sign the state is on track to lift restrictions sooner than planned.

It comes after the Premier announced the end of the state’s harsh night time curfew from today, as part of their second step out of lockdown.


Thousands will be able to get back to work across the construction and manufacturing industries, which were significantly impacted during the second wave.

The low case numbers brings the rolling 14 day average to 20.3.

Another three deaths have also been reported, but the ages and genders of those are not yet known.

Health authorities will provide more details later this morning.
