Media release

The total number of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Victoria is 1681, with no new cases reported yesterday.

Victoria’s last day with no reported coronavirus cases was 5 March.

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.

Currently eight people are in hospital, including three patients in intensive care. 1589 people have recovered.

Of the total 1681 cases, there have been 1394 in metropolitan Melbourne and 235 in regional Victoria. Several cases remain under investigation. The total number of cases is made up of 890 men and 791 women. 

Victoria is working with Queensland health authorities to trace potential contacts of a man who tested positive in Queensland yesterday. 

On Monday 1 June, the man caught a Skybus from Southern Cross Station to Melbourne Airport then flew to Queensland on Virgin flight VA313, which left Melbourne at 8am. He was likely infectious. 

The man is linked to a confirmed case from the Rydges on Swanston outbreak, but was not disclosed as a close contact so was not in quarantine when he left Victoria. 

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.

“Recording zero cases today is a great start, but this pandemic is far from over and now is not the time for complacency,” Professor Sutton said.
 
“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. 

“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 we have recorded most of recent cases.

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

“While our testing message applies to all Victorians, it is especially relevant to residents in the north and west.”

“I know there are many people wanting to protest in person this weekend and show their support. Unfortunately now is not the time for thousands of people to gather together, putting your and others’ health at risk.”
