Media release
11 September 2020

Victoria has recorded 43 new cases of coronavirus since yesterday, with the total number of cases now at 19,767.

The overall total has increased by 39 due to four cases being reclassified.

Within Victoria, 16 of the new cases are linked to outbreaks or complex cases and 27 are under investigation.

There have been nine new deaths from COVID-19 reported since yesterday. One woman in her 50s, one woman in her 70s, three men in their 80s and four women in their 90s. Five of the deaths occurred prior to yesterday.

Seven of today’s nine deaths are linked to known outbreaks in aged care facilities. To date, 710 people have died from coronavirus in Victoria.

The average number of cases diagnosed in the last 14 days for metropolitan Melbourne is 65.3 and regional Victoria is 4.7. The rolling daily average case number is calculated by averaging out the number of new cases over the past 14 days. 

The total number of cases from an unknown source in the last 14 days is 134 for metropolitan Melbourne and seven for regional Victoria. 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.
