Victoria records just one new case of coronavirus overnight and no lives lost

Victoria has reported just one new coronvirus infection and zero deaths as Melburnians enjoy their first weekend out of lockdown.

Saturday's health department figures show the fresh diagnosis and a daily case average of 2.4 for the fortnight up to Friday.

Authorities continue to investigate two mystery cases, for which there is no known source.

The city exited lockdown on Wednesday and residents are enjoying their first weekend with eased restrictions, including the chance to dine out.  

But the 25km travel limit remains in place and outdoor gatherings are still capped at 10 people. 

Premier Daniel Andrews on Friday pleaded for caution.

'I know that is challenging but if we want to keep doing that and not be locked down again and unable to see the people that we love, we just have to keep vigilant,' he said.

'We have to be, as a community, as stubborn as this virus. These last few months have to mean something, they have to be worth something.'

Victoria's two coronavirus cases under investigation include someone who had the virus in the past but is likely no longer infectious.

Victoria's COVID-19 death toll stands at 819 and the national figure is 907.

Victorian Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said Australia could be on track to eliminate coronavirus.

The risk of a third wave in the state was minimal but would not be zero until a vaccine was produced, he said.

Mr Andrews will not face the media on Saturday, bringing his daily news conference marathon to an end.

The premier has addressed Victorians for 120 consecutive days starting July 3.

Health Minister Martin Foley is due to conduct Saturday's briefing.
