Victoria has broken through the 2000 number case barrier for the second day running, as another six people died with Covid-19.
Victoria has recorded 2179 new cases of Covid-19.
There were another six deaths across the state on Thursday and the current number of active cases sits at 21,324.
It is the second consecutive day Victoria’s case numbers have crashed through the 2000 mark, following the announcement of an Australian record 2297 cases and 11 deaths yesterday.
Premier Daniel Andrews has assured Victorians the rising numbers will not deter the government’s plan to release residents from lockdown once vaccination goals are reached.
The state is hovering below the 70 per cent double dose milestone that would trigger the first tranche of relaxations.
More to come.
