Victoria has recorded 179 new COVID-19 cases

Victoria has recorded another 179 new cases coronavirus on Friday, the first time the total has fallen below 200 since July 13, when 177 cases were recorded.

There were nine more deaths, bringing the state toll to 385.

The lower number comes a day after active cases in the state dropped by 32 per cent overnight, from 7155 to 4864 cases.

Deputy Chief Health Officer Allen Cheng said the extraordinary drop was due to a large number of people who had contracted COVID-19 being processed and released from isolation.
