Victoria records 35 new COVID-19 cases – the lowest in 11 weeks – and seven more deaths

Victoria has recorded its lowest number of new coronavirus cases in 11 weeks as it recovers from a second horror wave of the virus.

The state recorded 35 new cases and seven more deaths on Monday to take the state’s death toll to 730 and the national count to 817. 

It’s also the fourth consecutive day Victoria has recorded less than 50 new cases in a 24-hour period. 

While Melbourne will remain under stage four lockdown until at least September 28, stage three restrictions in regional Victoria are expected to ease within days.

Melburnians will enjoy slightly more freedom from Monday with their daily exercise time is doubled from one hour to two.

The city’s strict night curfew will also be reduced by an hour to start at 9pm instead of 8pm.

There’s growing hope stage four restrictions will be lifted in two weeks if the rate of new daily cases stays under 50. 

More to come.
