Victoria COVID cases on Monday as state prepares to find out if lockdown will end as planned

0 6

Victoria has recorded a second day straight where all new COVID-19 cases have been in isolation for their entire infectious period.

On Monday, the health department confirmed there had been eleven cases recorded in the 24 hours until midnight.

All of them were linked to current outbreaks and were in quarantine for their entire infectious period.

This comes as the state anxiously waits to find out the next steps of restrictions with lockdown set to end at 11.59pm on Tuesday.

The lockdown has been extended once, but Premier Daniel Andrews said the state is now “well-placed” to end as planned.

This is because most of the daily cases are linked to known outbreaks and there is a downward trend in the number of people in the community while infectious.

“These numbers are the trend that we wanted to see, these numbers are more than promising, but we just have to wait and see what comes through tomorrow and Tuesday to be certain that we can ease restrictions,” Andrews told reporters.

“I will foreshadow, there will still be rules after midnight Tuesday, it’ll be important that we all follow them.”

Victorian cabinet ministers and the public health team will meet on Monday to discuss the new set of restrictions, but Mr Andrews flagged masks will remain compulsory for some time.

“Masks are going to be a feature from now until we get the maximum number of people through the vaccination program,” he said.

The statewide lockdown was called on July 15 due to an outbreak of the highly contagious Delta variant, which originated from cases in NSW.
