Victoria’s daily tally has dipped once again, with 11 new cases of coronavirus and two deaths recorded overnight.
It’s the lowest 24-hour increase since nine cases were recorded on June 16 and brings Melbourne’s rolling 14-day average to 34.4.
Metropolitan Melbourne must reach an average daily case rate of between 30 and 50 cases over the preceding fortnight to trigger an easing of lockdown measures from September 28.
The latest deaths include two women, one aged in her 80s and the other in her 100s.
Premier Daniel Andrews said: “This is not just a good day, it is a great day.
“We are seeing numbers come down and seeing these strategies.
“We will need to stay the course though because, if we were to open up, these numbers are still too high … We just have to stay the course on this. Ultimately, these are very good numbers.”
