Victoria registers 1,252 new local COVID-19 cases and five deaths

Nearly 500 people have now died with COVID-19 in Victoria’s latest outbreak, as the state registers 1,252 new local COVID-19 cases and five deaths.

It is the fourth day in a row that the state has registered more than 1,000 cases, with the seven-day average of daily infections now sitting at around 1,170.

Hospital admissions across the state appear to have stabilized at an average of about 300 over the past week.

There are 299 people in the hospital with COVID-19, of which 42 are in intensive care and 22 are in respirator.

The health department said another 48 people were on intensive care, but their COVID-19 infections were no longer considered active.

There are now 11,257 active cases of the virus in Victoria, and 499 people have died during the state’s current Delta outbreak.

The new cases were discovered from 57,292 test results received yesterday.

4,938 doses of vaccine were administered at state-run sites yesterday, and more vaccinations at general practitioners’ clinics and elsewhere.

Victoria has now fully vaccinated 90 per cent of its population aged 12 and over, with the government recently scrapping the border system with traffic lights and the need for domestic border permits, regardless of vaccination status.
