Victoria’s coronavirus cases are predicted to peak at 1100 cases in a 24 hour period by the end of next week amid an eight-day onslaught where it is expected the state will record around 1000 cases each day.

The Australian was able to obtain the Victorian government's estimates for the coming weeks which also show the average number of new cases per day is not expected to decrease until the final week of August.

Sky News contributor Caleb Bond told Sky News, “it’s obviously not good news that the worst is yet to come, and of course it points to the fact that Victoria wasn’t on top of the cases when they worked out what was going on".
