Victorians rejoice as state records only one new COVID-19 case


Victorians have woken up Saturday morning to the incredible news published by the Victorian Health Department, which shows the state recorded only one new COVID-19 case in the last 24 hours, along with no deaths.

Over two months ago, on August 4, Victoria recorded it’s highest number of daily coronavirus cases at 687. Since then, the state has been on the road to recovery, after recording a total of 816 deaths.

Minor changes have been implemented to Victoria’s stage 4 restrictions since September, including an extension of curfew and a “singles bubble”.

According to the Victorian Health Department, the state’s metropolitan area will reach the ‘third step’ of restrictions easing when the daily average number of cases is less than 5 state-wide over the previous 14 days and there are less than 5 cases with an unknown source in the last 14 days (state-wide total).

The third step includes a major industries return, along with increased reopening for education, sport, recreation, ceremonies and special occasions.

There are currently 17 cases with an unknown source. The Victorian government had hoped to be under five mystery cases before October 19 for easing.
