Victoria records 113 new virus cases

 

 

Victoria has recorded 113 new infections on Thursday.

The Health Department also confirmed 15 more deaths, taking the state's death toll to 591.

It comes after top-secret leaked documents revealed Melbourne's dreaded stage four lockdown would continue for another two weeks after September 13.

Seen by the Herald Sun, a preliminary draft of the city's lockdown exit road map showed once current restrictions ended residents would be able to exercise for two hours a day, split up into two sessions.

It showed the government was also thinking of allowing single people and single parents the right to have a nominated visitor at home.

But the 8pm-5am curfew would stay in place for a further two weeks, as would the restrictions on businesses.

Once that fortnight is up, on September 28, people would be allowed to socialise outdoors with five people from a maximum of two households, as well as a phased reopening of schools.

Premier Daniel Andrews will front the media later today.
