Latest COVID-19 numbers: Sutton warns against complacency as Victoria steadies
Victoria has recorded 177 new cases of coronavirus in the past 24 hours.
Although it’s a step in the right direction after consecutive days above 200 new daily cases, there remains an alarming 17 people in ICU with COVID-19, which is an increase of one in the past 24 hours.
- 25 of new cases are connected to contained outbreaks
- 151 cases under investigation
- 1 from hotel quarantine
- 22,943 tests were conducted
Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton said that although a decrease might allow for some optimism, “I’m not going to be complacent about today’s number” and warned Victoria might still not have reached its daily peak.
