Media Release
15 November 2020

Victoria has recorded no new cases of coronavirus since yesterday, with the total number of cases now at 20,345.

There have been no new deaths from COVID-19 reported since yesterday. To date, 819 people have died from coronavirus in Victoria.

This is the 16th straight day where Victoria has recorded zero daily new cases or deaths.

The average number of cases diagnosed in the last 14 days (1 Nov – 14 Nov 2020) for metropolitan Melbourne is zero and regional Victoria is zero. 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 (30 Oct – 12 Nov 2020) is zero for metropolitan Melbourne and zero from 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.

Yesterday afternoon, the Department received notification of a positive test result in a previously diagnosed case of COVID-19.  The case originally tested positive in July and was cleared in August.

This result is thought to be persistent shedding and not a new infection.  Precautionary public health actions are being taken while further testing is underway.  There are no known public exposure sites linked to this case.

The Expert Review Panel will meet today to further examine this case.

In Victoria at the current time:

  • 3762 cases may indicate community transmission – no change since yesterday
  • 3 cases are currently active in Victoria. All active cases are in metropolitan Melbourne
  • 2 cases of coronavirus are in hospital, there are no cases in intensive care
  • 19,523 people have recovered from the virus
  • A total of 3,398,653 test results have been received which is an increase of 8,323 since yesterday

Of the total cases:

  • 18,965 cases are from metropolitan Melbourne, while 1196 are from regional Victoria
  • Total cases include 9702 men and 10,630 women
  • Total number of healthcare workers: 3574, active cases: 0

As public health work is undertaken throughout the day, outbreak totals are likely to change as the public health team identify links between cases and identified outbreaks. Organisation based outbreak totals include contacts as well as employees/residents/staff/students of that location/business.

Information regarding COVID-19 is available at the Department of Health and Human Services website or by calling 1800 675 398. Testing site details are available here: dhhs.vic.gov.au/where-get-tested-covid-19
