There hasn’t been a day of no new deaths since September 15, and before that, not since mid-July.
It comes as the state records another low number of infections, with just nine more cases overnight.

That brings the rolling 14 day average down to 11.6, from 11.9 yesterday.
But the Premier Dan Andrews has issued a stern warning to Melbourne residents not to ruin the good progress now, after crowds were caught flocking to the beaches over the weekend.
“We are so, so close. Let’s no any of us do anything that might undermine the very positive numbers.
“Once we get them low, we can keep them low and we can open up again… If we don’t do anything silly or anything selfish right now,” he told reporters yesterday.
He’s set to provide further information in another update later this morning.
Yesterday there were 9 new cases & no deaths reported. In Metro Melbourne, the 14 day rolling average is down from yesterday & the number of cases with unknown source is the same. Info: https://t.co/pcll7ySEgz #COVID19VicData pic.twitter.com/1ypK2G52Vh
