Victoria reports no new cases of COVID-19 for the first time since June

For the first time since 9 June Victoria has reported no new cases of COVID-19 and zero deaths.

As such, metropolitan Melbourne's 14-day rolling average of cases has fallen to 3.6, and there are just seven cases with an unknown source in the Victorian capital.

The 14-day rolling average in regional Victoria is now down to just 0.2 and zero cases with an unknown source.

The major achievement comes as Victorians have been subjected to months of strict COVID-19 restrictions, designed to drag the state's infection numbers down to what has been achieved today.

 

It is a bright spot of news for Melburnians who were left disappointed yesterday after Premier Daniel Andrews delayed the announcement of the easing of restrictions.

Andrews said yesterday that the delays were necessary to get on top of an outbreak of COVID-19 in the city's northern suburbs.

Following extensive testing of residents in the northern suburbs since yesterday there have been no new reported cases in the area.
