Media release
11 July 2020

Victoria has recorded 216 new cases of coronavirus since yesterday, with the total number of cases now at 3560.

The overall total has increased by 181, after 35 cases were reclassified – largely due to duplication. 

Within Victoria, 30 of the new cases are linked to outbreaks and 186 are under investigation. No cases have been detected in returned travellers in hotel quarantine.

There has been one death reported since yesterday, with a man in his 90s passing away in hospital overnight. To date, 23 people have died from coronavirus in Victoria.

  • 535 cases may indicate community transmission
  • 1249 cases are currently active in Victoria
  • 49 cases of coronavirus are in hospital, including 15 in intensive care
  • 2286 people have recovered from the virus
  • Of the total cases, 3176 cases are from metropolitan Melbourne, while 279 are from regional Victoria
  • Total cases include 1876 men and 1659 women
  • More than 1,095,000 tests have been processed to date

Cases linked to outbreaks include:

  • 138 cases are linked to the North Melbourne and Flemington public housing towers
  • 134 cases are linked to Al-Taqwa College
  • Three cases are linked to the Somerville Meats Retail Services in Tottenham
  • Four cases are linked to Cenvic Construction Riverina Apartments in Footscray 
  • Two cases are linked to the JBS Australia Brooklyn Plant abattoir

  • 10 cases are linked to Menarock Aged Care in Essendon
  • Seven cases are linked to the Glendale Aged Care Facility in Werribee
  • Five cases are linked to Debney Meadows Primary School 
  • Three cases are linked to Ilim College

Stage 3 “Stay at Home” restrictions are in force across metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire.

“These restrictions have become necessary because of the sharp increase in cases,” said Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton.

“If you live in these areas, there’ll be only four reasons to leave your home: shopping for food and essential items; care and caregiving; daily exercise; and work and study, if you can’t do it from home. 

“Restaurants and cafes will return to takeaway and delivery services only, and beauty and personal services will need to close. Entertainment and cultural venues will need to close. Community sport will also stop.

“This Stay at Home direction will apply to your principal place of residence – which means you need to stay home and not use a holiday home.

“These are tough measures, but this virus is not selective - it will impact anyone it encounters, and personal contact is the clear source of its transmission. We need everyone to do their part and ensure it is stopped in its tracks.”
