'Around 500' of the 7869 active cases statewide are in regional Victoria, Premier Daniel Andrews announced this morning.
The state recorded 322 new cases today - the lowest daily increase in 12 days.
Sadly, however, 19 Victorians lost their lives to COVID-19: one man in his 50s, one woman in her 60s, two men in their 70s, one man and six women in their 80s, and one man and seven women in their 90s.
Fourteen of the new deaths are linked to aged care outbreaks. The death toll now sits at 228.
There have been 105 new "mystery cases", where the source of infection is not known. There are now 2863 cases of this nature.
Premier Daniel Andrews stressed the importance of what was at stake, as he spoke of the potential long-term health impacts of COVID-19.
"Think about the person who is most important to you. Think about them with a tube to help them breathe, in intensive care for 32 days. That's how serious this is. It is a matter of life and death," he said.
CSIRO director of health and biosecurity and former Natimuk GP Dr Rob Grenfell previously said some COVID-19 patients were starting to show signs of heart damage, neurological damage and chronic fatigue. You can find his in-depth explanation here.
