Victoria under lockdown sees deadliest day of Covid-19

From Checkpoint, 5:40 pm on 5 August 2020

It's Victoria's deadliest day in the battle against Covid-19 with 725 new cases, and 15 more deaths including a man in his 30s.

It comes as the state prepares for a quarter of a million workers to stay home, and their school children to go back to online classes.

And as Alex Perrottet reports, there are concerns for those children coping with yet another lockdown, and grief for those who are dying in embattled aged care homes.
