Victoria records sixth day straight of no new Covid cases or deaths

It seems Victoria has completely stamped out coronavirus, nearing a week of no new cases or deaths.

Today marks the sixth day in a row of no new infections or fatalities, as the city of Melbourne prepares to lift its ‘ring of steel’ this weekend.

The rolling 14 day average within Melbourne has now dropped to 1.4, with still just two cases with an unknown source.


Health authorities are expected to provide further information later this morning.

It comes after New South Wales announced Victorians will be welcomed back across the border from November 23.
