Media release
13 July 2020

Victoria has recorded 177 new cases of coronavirus since yesterday, with the total number of cases now at 3967.

The overall total has increased by 168, after nine cases were reclassified – largely due to duplication. 

Within Victoria, 25 of the new cases are linked to outbreaks and 151 are under investigation. One new case has been detected in a returned traveller in hotel quarantine.

There has been no deaths reported since yesterday. To date, 24 people have died from coronavirus in Victoria.

In Victoria at the current time:

  • 641 cases may indicate community transmission
  • 1612 cases are currently active in Victoria
  • 72 cases of coronavirus are in hospital, including 17 in intensive care
  • 2329 people have recovered from the virus
  • Of the total cases, 3552 cases are from metropolitan Melbourne, while 293 are from regional Victoria
  • Total cases include 2100 men and 1856 women
  • More than 1,148,300 tests have been processed

Cases currently linked to public housing in North Melbourne, Flemington and Carlton are as follows: 

  • 242 cases are residents of various public housing towers in North Melbourne and Flemington. Investigations are continuing into how these cases are linked. 
  • 32 cases are residents of various public housing towers in Carlton. Investigations are continuing into if and/or how these cases are linked. 

Cases currently linked to some other outbreaks are as follows:

  • Six cases have been linked to LaManna Supermarket Essendon
  • 12 cases have been linked to Somerville Retail Services 
  • Eight cases have been linked to Cenvic Construction Riverina Apartments in Footscray
  • 26 cases have been linked to Menarock Life Aged Care Facility in Essendon
  • 13 cases have been linked Glendale Aged Care Facility in Werribee
  • 144 cases have been linked to Al-Taqwa College
  • Two cases have been linked to Japara Central Park Aged Care in Windsor 

As interviews are undertaken throughout the day, these outbreak totals are likely to change as the public health team identify links between cases and identified outbreaks.

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 are 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 are now takeaway and delivery services only, and beauty and personal services are closed. Entertainment and cultural venues are also closed. Community sport may not occur.

“This Stay at Home direction applies 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.”
