Victoria has recorded its second day without any coronavirus death, shedding more optimism towards its Covid-19 recovery path. The last time Victoria recorded zero coronavirus related deaths across consecutive days was before 10th July. The state also recorded 11 new cases of Covid-19 on Friday.

As of Friday, Metropolitan Melbourne’s rolling 14-day case average is 9.4, down from Thursday’s 9.7 and regional Victoria’s rolling 14-day case average is 0.4 – consistent to Thursday’s number.

Friday’s numbers continues to shed optimism on Victoria’s path towards achieving a Covid-19 normal as metropolitan Melbourne awaits to meet its trigger points for reaching its third step by October 19.

For Melbourne to reach its third step, the state will have to record a 14-day average below five cases, and a two-week mystery case total below five.

After meeting its third step, the state will aim for 14 days of zero coronavirus cases, which is its trigger point for Step 4 of its coronavirus – road to recovery.
