Melbourne may be headed for an even tougher lockdown after reporting its worst day of the pandemic with a record 723 new cases and 13 new deaths.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews was in crisis talks with Prime Minister Scott Morrison well into the night.

Under a harder lockdown, all businesses aside from only the most essential - supermarkets, pharmacies, petrol stations and healthcare – would be forced to close.

Premier Andrews yesterday mandated mask wearing for all Victorians from this Monday, including those living in the state’s regions.

He also introduced new rules for the state’s south-west, restricting residents from gathering inside their homes.
