Victoria has recorded just 11 new cases of coronavirus overnight, along with two more deaths.
It’s slightly less than yesterday’s 14 cases, which was the lowest daily infection rate in around three months.
The continuously low numbers are fuelling hopes that the lock down restrictions could be lifted sooner than predicted.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has said restrictions would gradually start to be eased from the end of the month the average number of cases over 14 days was between 30 and 50.
The current rolling average sits at 34.4.
There were another two deaths also reported overnight, bringing the state’s coronavirus death toll 763, and the national toll to 851.
Health officials will give further details later this morning.
Deputy Chief Medical Officer Nick Coatsworth has told the ABC it’s great news, but Victorians cannot afford to be complacent once restrictions begin easing.
