Six of today’s 12 new cases have been linked to known outbreaks or complex cases. Three are linked to the Butcher Club–Chadstone Shopping Centre outbreak and three are linked to the Electra Park Medical Centre in Ashwood. The other six cases remain under investigation.

Of today’s 12 new cases, there are four cases in Monash and single cases in Boroondara, Glen Eira, Greater Dandenong, Melton, Whitehorse, Wyndham, Yarra Ranges and Mitchell Shire.

There has been one new death from COVID-19 reported since yesterday. A man aged in his 80s

Today’s death is linked to a known aged care facility outbreak. To date, 806 people have died from coronavirus in Victoria.

The average number of cases diagnosed in the last 14 days for metropolitan Melbourne is 11.9 and regional Victoria is 0.2. The rolling daily average case number is calculated by averaging out the number of new cases over the past 14 days.

The 14-day period for the source of acquisition data ends 48 hours earlier than the 14-day period used to calculate the new case average due to the time required to fully investigate a case and assign its mode of acquisition.
