Victoria has recorded two new locally acquired cases on Saturday. Both are linked to existing clusters. However, one case was not in quarantine for their infectious period. The second case was in quarantine “throughout their entire infectious period”, the Victorian Department of Health said. More than 32,000 tests were carried out on Friday, while 19,502 vaccine doses were administered.
Victoria has recorded more than 200 cases linked to the two outbreaks that jumped the border from Sydney’s deadly Delta cluster – one from a team of Sydney removalists who transited through the state and the other from a family who returned to Melbourne’s north from an NSW red zone.
