Victoria has recorded another 1488 cases, another high total as more regions enter lockdown.

ACTIVE CASES BY POSTCODE
It comes as residents in two regional Victorian towns awake on Saturday to their first day of seven under a fresh lockdown.
Shepparton and Moorabool were plunged back into lockdown at 11:59pm on Friday to contain growing cases.
Shepparton's active cases have grown to 24, with Moorabool currently dealing with 32 cases.
Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of Victorians have been issued an ultimatum: get vaccinated for COVID-19 in two weeks or risk losing your job.
All Victorian authorised workers must have their first vaccine dose by October 15 and a second by November 26 to keep working on site, as part of a new statewide mandate.
The requirement will cover retail workers, personal trainers, MPs, journalists, faith leaders, judges, police, lawyers, actors and professional sportspeople.
Of the 1.25 million estimated authorised workers in the state, Premier Daniel Andrews says more than a million have already had their first dose.
The government plans to consult with certain industries such as energy, waste management and faith leaders but Mr Andrews flagged there would be few exemptions.
The October 15 deadline will not replace Victoria's separate vaccine mandate timelines for aged care, healthcare, freight, construction and education workers.
Mr Andrews played down the possibility the broader mandate could spark more anti-vaccine protests, with another three demonstrators arrested on Friday.
"I'm not taking lectures on freedom from people who will hold all of us back," he said.
Victorian Chamber of Commerce chief executive Paul Guerra welcomed the decision, saying it provided businesses with "certainty, guidance and protections".
IN THE NEWS
The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia also labelled it a "step in the right direction".
But the Victorian opposition is demanding the public health advice behind the expanded mandate be publicly released.
"It has all the appearance of panic," Shadow Treasurer David Davis said.
The state government has also revealed its plan to restart the construction industry from Tuesday after a two-week shutdown in Melbourne and other locked- down regions
