The daily record of 484 coronavirus cases for Victoria is more than the total amount recorded in all of the UK during the same period.
The Victorian figure contributed the bulk of cases during Australia's record breaking worst day since the pandemic began. There were more than 500 cases in total, including 16 in NSW.
In the UK, there were 445 cases in total. That figure is way down on what was being recorded during the height of the pandemic.
The UK has turned a corner in its fight to contain the virus after case numbers exploded earlier in the pandemic and more than 295,000 people were infected.
The UK has recorded more than 45,000 deaths.
Under fire Premier Daniel Andrews laid the blame for the majority of cases on Victorians who refused to stay home after showing symptoms.
He told reporters that nine out of 10 Victorians carried on with their normal lives and that more than 53 per cent refused to wait for test results before returning to work or going shopping.
It comes amid reports Victoria could face a two-year isolation from the rest of Australia if they can't get Covid-19 under control.
