Victorian Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton says most Victorians are “cautiously optimistic” about the drop in COVID case numbers in recent days.
It comes as the state recorded 1,466 new cases on Tuesday.
“We do see a bit of a drop in numbers over the last few days,” Professor Sutton said.
“I think most people feel cautiously optimistic about that.
“I think it’s terrific to have seen a consistent drop over a few days, that’s not to say that we shouldn’t keep our guard up or that we might not see an uptick in cases.”
He said, however, the higher levels of vaccination every day gives him hope the state is continuing to suppress transmission.
