Victoria’s death toll for viruses is 819, with a national average of 907.
Despite the positive trend, on Monday, Premier Daniel Andrews blasted those participating in a street party in St Kilda that violated the rules of the virus.
“The people involved in that sort of activity, they know it’s not the right thing to do,” he said, adding the behaviour was “fundamentally selfish”.
