Latrobe City has recorded eight new COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours up to midnight.

Seven are in the 3844 postcode (Traralgon and district) and one in the 3842 postcode (Churchil and district).

That tally lifts the total active cases in the municipality to 39.

“We have eight in Latrobe, although there is quite a stable pattern across the growth in the households we’ve been working with,” COVID-19 commander Jeroen Weimar said today.

It comes as 71 cases were reported across regional Victoria in the past 24 hours.

Victoria recorded 1488 COVID-19 cases in the 24 hours up to midnight, all of which were locally-acquired.

“Another challenging day, the largest number of COVID-19 cases in one day, the largest amount of active cases at one time,” Mr Weimar said.

There are currently 11,591 active cases in Victoria.

A record 71,224 tests were processed yesterday, with 36,878 vaccines administered at state-run hubs yesterday.
