Victoria has recorded 37 new cases of coronavirus, the first time new daily cases have dropped into the 30s since June, and six further deaths.
There are 58 active cases in regional Victoria and no new cases outside of Melbourne since yesterday.
Metropolitan Melbourne’s 14-day coronavirus daily case average has dropped for the fifth day in a row to 61.6, and regional Victoria’s has dropped to 4.3.
Premier Daniel Andrews said the situation in regional Victoria was “a clear, clear indication” the state could achieve low numbers by following the roadmap.
In NSW six new cases of COVID-19 were diagnosed in the 24 hours to 8:00pm last night, bringing the total number of cases in NSW to 3,968.
Of the six new cases, one is a returned overseas traveller in hotel quarantine and five are locally acquired and linked to a known case or cluster.
