When will Victoria’s numbers fall?

Victoria recorded 471 cases overnight, and eight deaths -- four of those deaths were related to clusters in aged care.

While that’s a decline from Wednesday’s record 725, the state’s numbers still aren’t falling as quickly as hoped.

About a third of Wednesday’s surge in new cases were from known outbreaks, particularly in aged care. That means the lockdowns won't have had much effect.
