Victoria reports 603 new local COVID-19 cases and one death

Victoria has recorded 603 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases and one death.

It’s the first time Victoria has surpassed the 600-case mark for positive cases in one day since the start of the Delta outbreak.

The state now has 6,000 active cases.

The latest death brings the toll from the current outbreak to 13.

There were another 40,811 vaccines administered in state-run hubs yesterday.

It comes as construction sites across Melbourne, Ballarat, Geelong, Mitchell Shire and the Surf Coast were shut down for two weeks late on Monday, following violent protests in Melbourne over a vaccine mandate for the industry.

Victoria reported 567 new cases on Monday.
