Victoria Has Recorded A Whopping 288 New Coronavirus Cases Since Yesterday

Victoria has recorded 288 new coronavirus cases across the state since yesterday's numbers were tallied.

It's the highest single-day increase in new cases since the pandemic began. The record was 191, which was only hit a few days ago.

The new numbers paint a very worrying scene for Victoria.

Parts of Melbourne and Mitchell Shire have been placed into lockdown to prevent more cases, however it could be some time before the second wave is brought under control.

Nearly 200 New Coronavirus Cases Recorded In Victoria Yesterday

"People will feel deeply concerned to see that number as high as it is. I just want to remind everybody that we have been very, very clear. We didn't take this step to return to staying at home, except for the four reasons for metropolitan Melbourne, because the numbers were stable.

"We didn't take that step because we didn't have a problem, we took that step because we knew it would need to get worse before it got better and that unless we took those steps we simply wouldn't be able to bring a sense of control to this.

"We would not be able to see a stabilisation and then a driving down of those case numbers stop at the same time, no one should underestimate how significant, how big a challenge we all face. It is very significant."
