VICTORIA has recorded 11 new COVID-19 cases and two deaths overnight, taking the state’s death toll to 763.

The deaths include one female in her 80s and one female in her 100s.

One death is linked to aged care outbreaks.

There are 92 Victorians in hospital, with six in intensive care and three on ventilators.

Premier, Daniel Andrews said there are 23 active cases across regional Victoria, bringing the 14-day average to 1.6.

Metropolitan Melbourne’s 14-day average is 34.4.

Mr Andrews said there have been 7164 tests processed since yesterday.

“It is critically important we keep test numbers up as high as can be,” he said.

“Anybody that has symptoms needs to come forward and getting tested won't mean we won't take a step forward.

“If you've got symptoms, you've got to get tested.

“These are very good numbers and shows up the roadmap is working. We will get to that COVID normal.”
