Victoria Covid-19: New local cases and nine deaths

Victoria has recorded more than 1000 new infections, while nine people have died with the virus.

Victoria has recorded 1115 new locally acquired Covid-19 infections and nine more deaths.

The state has consistently recorded more than 1000 new infections each day since easing restrictions, while 426 cases were in hospital on Friday, with 82 of those in intensive care.

Health authorities revealed 50 of those were reliant on breathing oxygen through a ventilator.

From Thursday, more than 86 per cent of eligible Victorians have been double vaccinated and more than 92 per cent have received one dose of the Covid jab.

Once the state reaches 90 per cent double vaccination coverage, Daniel Andrews has committed to no restrictions on the state’s population.

That target is expected to be reached on about November 24 when the Premier expects to have “no density” measures anywhere.

“Masks will only be required in high-risk indoor settings, such as public transport, prisons, hospitals, aged care, to give you some examples,” Mr Andrews said earlier in the week.

”I want to see 80,000 plus people at the Boxing (Day) Test on day one.

“It won’t be easy, but we are very confident, very, very confident that we will be able to deliver that.”
