Premier Daniel Andrews on Thursday said the latest fatalities were three men and three women in their 70s, three men and two women in their 80s, and two men aged in their 90s.

The deaths take the state toll to 105 and the national figure to 189.

Today’s increase surpasses Victoria’s previous single-day record increase by more than 190 cases.

On Monday the state recorded 532 new infections.

Wednesday’s increase of 295 cases was the first time since Friday the state’s daily increase had been below 300, but Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton declined to say the state had passed a peak.

“We could get a number of aged care facilities with 50, 60, 70 cases a day that would change the numbers, that would also put at risk the broader community,” Professor Sutton said yesterday.

Victoria has now recorded a total of 9998 coronavirus cases and 105 deaths since the pandemic began.
