Victoria records more daily COVID-19 cases than any other state for over two consecutive weeks.

There were eleven new coronavirus cases detected in Victoria overnight, while no other state recorded any new cases.

With a population of almost two million more than Victoria, New South Wales has recorded a quarter of the Victorian COVID-19 cases this month.

Lockdown restrictions in Victoria are tighter than any other state.

Once ‘flattening the curb’, other states eased restrictions and continued to decline in new COVID-19 cases.

Victoria slowest to lift restrictions has seen a steady increase in cases.

Many of Victorias new cases link back to two clusters at Cedar Meats and Fawkner McDonald’s.

The Department of Health and Human Services in Victoria is responsible for the failed contact tracing, which caused both clusters.
