As Victorians enjoy a weekend with less restrictions, the state has inched closer to the 80 per cent double-jab milestone.
Victoria has recorded 1355 new Covid-19 cases and 11 deaths as the state enjoys a weekend of united freedom.
Despite the state having not quite hit the 80 per cent double dose mark, authorities proceeded with winding back restrictions on Friday, which will mean 10,000 punters can attend Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup.
As of Saturday, 91.46 of eligible Victorians have had one dose of their Covid vaccine, while 78.75 per cent are fully vaccinated.
There are 747 people in hospital, 135 of which are in intensive care. Authorities say 83 people currently require ventilation.
Saturday marks a day of eased restrictions in Melbourne, in line with the rest of the state.
More to come.
