Media release
14 July 2020

Victoria has recorded 270 new cases of coronavirus since yesterday, with the total number of cases now at 4224.

The overall total has increased by 257, after 13 cases were reclassified – largely due to duplication.

Within Victoria, 28 of the new cases are linked to outbreaks and 242 are under investigation. No new cases have been detected in a returned traveller in hotel quarantine.

Two new deaths have been reported since yesterday. A woman in her 80’s and a man in his 80’s, both died in hospital. To date, 26 people have died from coronavirus in Victoria.

In Victoria at the current time:

  • 752 cases may indicate community transmission
  • 1803 cases are currently active in Victoria
  • 85 cases of coronavirus are in hospital, including 26 in intensive care
  • 2395 people have recovered from the virus
  • Of the total cases, 3799 cases are from metropolitan Melbourne, while 298 are from regional Victoria
  • Total cases include 2213 men and 2001 women
  • More than 1,170,300 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 key outbreaks are as follows:

  • 147 cases have been linked to Al-Taqwa College
  • 28 cases have been linked to Menarock Life Aged Care Facility in Essendon
  • 14 cases have been linked to Somerville Retail Services in Tottenham
  • 14 cases have been linked to Brunswick Private Hospital
  • 13 cases linked to Estia Health aged care facility in Ardeer
  • 12 cases linked to Goodman Fielder site in West Footscray
  • 11 cases have been linked to LaManna Supermarket Essendon
  • 9 cases have been linked to Cenvic Construction Riverina Apartments in Footscray

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.”
