400 arrested in Victoria as authorities warn of "long road ahead."
Victoria has recorded no new cases of coronavirus for a fifth consecutive day the day after police clashed with anti-lockdown protesters, arresting over 400 people.
Another 395 fines will also be handed out for a range of offences including assaulting police and coronavirus rule breaches.
With Flemington Racecourse closed to punters for the 160th running of the Melbourne Cup, pubs and bars filled up quickly amid cap limits of 50 people outdoors and 20 indoors.
Thousands also flocked to beaches in St Kilda, Brighton and Williamstown, with many flouting orders to wear masks unless in the water.
Despite Tuesday's COVID-19 feat, health authorities believe there are still undetected cases in the state.
The state has today recorded yet another day of zero deaths and zero new cases.
Zero new cases and zero lives lost reported in the last 24 hours. The 14 day rolling average is now 1.7, and there are 2 cases with an unknown source. For more info visit: https://t.co/eTputEZdhs #COVIDVicData pic.twitter.com/uQ3rm75oO5— VicGovDHHS (@VicGovDHHS) November 3, 2020
