Coronavirus update for Victoria 8/06/2020

The total number of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Victoria is 1,687, with two new cases reported yesterday.

There have been no new deaths reported. To date, 19 people have died from coronavirus in Victoria.

There have been 177 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Victoria that have been acquired through unknown transmission, which is unchanged from yesterday. There are currently 71 active cases in Victoria.

Currently seven people are in hospital, including two patients in intensive care. 1,595 people have recovered.

Of the total 1,687 cases, there have been 1,403 in metropolitan Melbourne and 236 in regional Victoria. Several cases remain under investigation. The total number of cases is made up of 894 men and 793 women. More than 543,000 tests have been processed to date.

Of yesterday’s cases, one was detected in returned travelers in hotel quarantine. The other was in a resident of an aged care facility in north-eastern Victoria. 

The person is currently being isolated in hospital where they were transferred for an unrelated condition. About 25 remaining residents of Hawthorn Village in Bright have been placed in quarantine and contact tracing has begun. The families of residents have been advised of the situation. 

We are working closely with the facility to ensure appropriate public health actions have been taken, including isolation, quarantine and cleaning. Close contacts will be ordered into home quarantine and all residents and staff at the facility will be tested.

Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton said great progress had been made in Victoria slowing the spread of coronavirus, thanks to Victorians playing their part, staying at home and getting tested.

“Our low rate of community transmission means we have been able to ease some restrictions in time for the long weekend, but it’s still important to stay safe,” Professor Sutton said.

“Although it’s tempting to rush out or have your friends over or head out to a cafe, it is important that we all still use common sense.

“That means continuing to maintain physical distance from others, practice good hygiene - wash your hands regularly and cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow, avoid crowds, be cautious and if you’re unwell stay home and get tested.

“This particularly applies to people in the west and north of Melbourne where most recent cases have been recorded.

“This indicates there is on-going community transmission in these areas, and although it appears to be at low levels.

“Our clear advice was not to attend last Saturday’s protest as thousands of people flooding the city in close contact was a risk. If you attended and go on to develop any symptoms, no matter how mild - it is critically important that you go and get tested.”
