This year's deadliest day of the Covid epidemic occurred in Victoria, just a day before the state goes to the next stage of reopening.

The state reported 1,923 new locally acquired cases and 25 deaths, the highest single-day death toll in the current outbreak in the state.

Despite the fact that more than 77 percent of Victorians are now completely vaccinated, and despite the fact that the next wave of restrictions will be lifted on Friday, the grim figure remains.

A guy in his forties, a man and a woman in their fifties, two men in their sixties, four men and two women in their seventies, six men and four women in their eighties, and four women in their nineties were among those who died.
