Victoria has recorded 1126 new COVID-19 cases and five deaths in the 24 hours to midnight.

The state's population over 12 years of age is now 84 per cent fully vaccinated.

There are 556 patients with COVID-19 in hospital with 91 in ICU and 54 ventilated.

There were 44,479 tests done in the past 24 hours, while 8337 vaccine doses were administered at state run clinics.

Those clinics have now given a total of 4,704,061 vaccines.

There are 16,178 active cases of COVID-19 across the state.


Diners will be able to claim up to $150 in meal vouchers as part of a $44 million package to revitalise Melbourne's CBD after the city's sixth lockdown.

The state government and City of Melbourne have agreed to jointly fund a number of targeted initiatives to bring the city centre back to life, including a $5 million midweek dining rebate scheme.

From November 15, diners can claim up to $150 off their food bills between Monday and Thursday each week.

More than 200,000 rebates will be up for grabs at restaurants, cafes and bars which serve food in the CBD, Carlton's Lygon Street, North Melbourne, Southbank, South Wharf and Docklands.
