In metropolitan Melbourne, the 14-day rolling average is currently 2.6, which is a 0.2 rise from Wednesday.
In regional Victoria, the rolling average is still zero and there are two mystery events, which is a drop of two from a day ago.
Two of the latest COVID cases on Friday are weak positive cases and could be found by an expert panel as not being valid cases.
According to Professor Brett Sutton, one case seems to be ancient or restored and one case is under review.
On Thursday, Victoria reported three cases, two on Wednesday, none on both Monday and Tuesday, and seven on both Saturday and Sunday.
