The Australian state of Victoria -- once the country’s Covid-19 epicenter -- has gone 29 days with no new infections, the state’s Department of Health announced on Saturday.
There are also currently no active cases of Covid-19 in the state.
“All Victorians should feel proud for getting us to this point, but now is not the time to be complacent,” the state’s Department of Health said in a statement on Friday when Victoria reached the symbolic 28-day mark.
The Department of Health stressed that the fight against Covid-19 is not over in the state as “coronavirus fragments have been detected in a wastewater sample.”
"A real risk remains with arriving interstate travelers or the emergence of new local cases.”
“Our fight against Covid-19 is not over. There are still significant outbreaks happening around the world and we do not yet have an effective vaccine,” the statement says.
