Victoria records no new coronavirus cases for first time in months

Great news for Victoria this morning, with no new coronavirus cases diagnosed overnight.

It’s the first time that’s happened since June, and drops the rolling average down to 3.6.

There’s once again been no new deaths, while there are seven cases with an unknown source.


It comes after Premier Dan Andrews put a ‘cautious pause’ on further easing of restrictions, as authorities waited for the results of at least 1,000 tests from Melbourne’s north.

“We had hoped today to be able to announce that metropolitan Melbourne would take significant steps, not from today but from midweek, around retail, hospitality and a whole range of other, important next steps.

“We are not in a position to do that today because we have at least 1000 test results from that northern metropolitan outbreak that are in the labs,” Premier Andrews said yesterday.

The Premier and health officials will provide more information later this morning.
