Victoria reported 208 new coronavirus cases on 23 August, after case numbers remained below 200 on each of the two previous days. The state’s seven-day daily average has fallen to 218, its lowest level since mid-July. Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton is optimistic that daily case numbers will not return to the 300-400 range, while Premier Daniel Andrews has warned against complacency in the final weeks of Melbourne’s stage-four lockdown. Victoria’s death toll has risen by 17 to 415; and the national toll is now 502.
