Victoria records 800th coronavirus death, and another increase in daily cases

Victoria’s coronavirus death toll has now reached 800, as the daily infection rate increases once again.

There have been 15 new coronavirus cases diagnosed overnight, along with two more deaths.

It’s the third day in a row that daily infection numbers have increased, with just 13 yesterday, 10 the day before and 5 the day before that.


In good news, the rolling 14 day average continues to drop and now sits at 15.6.

But the state’s death toll has now reached 800, while the national toll sits at 888.

The ages and genders of those who’ve passed is not yet known, with authorities to provide further information later this morning.
