Victoria recorded six new coronavirus cases on 15 October, but the number of active cases fell to 175. Melbourne’s 14-day rolling average of new cases has fallen to 8.9, as the state government prepares to announce some easing of lockdown restrictions from 19 October. Deputy Chief Health Officer Allen Cheng has indicated that scrapping the 5km travel limit for Melbourne residents is among the measures that are being considered in the government’s revised ‘roadmap’. There has been speculation that this could be expanded to 20km. Victoria’s death toll from COVID-19 remains unchanged at 816.
