Victoria has recorded 190 new coronavirus cases since Friday. The new COVID-19 cases included 103 that are linked to known cases and outbreaks and none acquired overseas. Read more: Friday also bought 49,548 test results to Victorians as well as 35,464 vaccinations being administered. Victoria’s active coronavirus case tally now sits at 1,301. These cases come as Premier Daniel Andrews says unvaccinated Victorians will not be welcome at many venues once the state reaches its double dose thresholds. It will happen even though wider community lockdowns will be far less relevant, he said. That might seem a bit harsh, but I’ve said this before and I will make the point again, I am not going to lock the whole state down to protect people who would not protect themselves,” Mr Andrews said. More news: “Yes, there is some supply issues with vaccine at the moment, but by the time we get to 70 or 80 per cent, everybody who was to be vaccinated would have been given an opportunity to do so. “So I think if you are not vaccinated, and you could be, the chances of you booking a ticket at a sporting event, going to a pub, go to out and about to different places, will be very limited.” The comments come after Mr Andrews spoke with prime minister Scott Morrison about the path out of lockdown on Wednesday evening.
