The total number of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Victoria is 1,741, with nine new cases reported yesterday.

There have been no new deaths reported. To date, 19 people have died from coronavirus in Victoria.

 There have been 184 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Victoria that have been acquired through unknown transmission. There are currently 51 active cases in Victoria.

Currently six people are in hospital, including two patients in intensive care. 1,664 people have recovered.

Of the total 1,741 cases, there have been 1,451 in metropolitan Melbourne and 239 in regional Victoria. Several cases remain under investigation. The total number of cases is made up of 923 men and 818 women. More than 599,000 tests have been processed to date.

Of the new cases, three are linked to known outbreaks, two are in hotel quarantine, one was detected through routine testing and three are currently under investigation.  

Two of the new cases have been detected through contact tracing as part the Monash Health outbreak investigation. This brings the total number of cases linked to this outbreak to six.

Another new case was detected through testing of close contacts linked to an extended family outbreak in Melbourne’s northern and south-eastern suburbs. This brings the total number of cases linked to this outbreak to 12.

The new case detected through routine testing is a student at Strathmore Primary School. The student attended the school for at least one day while infectious. The school has been closed for cleaning and all close contacts are being followed up for testing.

“Thanks to Victorians playing their part, staying at home and getting tested, we have made some great progress in slowing the spread of coronavirus,” Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton said.

“However, we are still seeing transmission in households and other settings. It remains critical to practice good hygiene - wash your hands regularly and cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow and try to avoid touching your face.

“Stay 1.5 metres away from anyone you don’t live with and avoid crowds, especially indoors. If you can keep working from home – you must keep working from home.

“And if you do feel unwell with any symptoms of coronavirus you should get tested. This includes fever, chills, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose or loss of sense of smell.

If you attended the Black Lives Matter march in the city on Saturday 6 June there is currently no requirement to quarantine or get tested if you do not have symptoms. However, should you develop any symptoms, no matter how mild, it is critically important that you get tested.”
