Victoria reported a record number of COVID-19 deaths in the past 24 hours, with 25 dying.
The state has also recorded 282 new cases.
It comes after 279 new cases were recorded by Victoria on Sunday, and 16 deaths. There were confirmed 303 new cases on Saturday, and four deaths.
107 people have died at COVID-19 in Victoria in the last seven days. Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews, speaking on Sunday, said it was “unlikely” the virus would ever be absolutely eliminated.
“Even when this second wave is over, we will still see cases, we will still see outbreaks, that is a function of this thing,” he said.
“The notion of completely extinguishing it and never seeing it again, I think that it would be an unlikely outcome.”
Mr Andrews also revealed he had “cautious optimism” stage-four lockdown measures in Melbourne would be eased from mid-September.
