Media release
3 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 fourth day in a row where Victoria has recorded zero daily cases or deaths.

The average number of cases diagnosed in the last 14 days (20 Oct 2020 – 2 Nov 2020) for metropolitan Melbourne is 1.9 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 (18 Oct 2020 – 31 Oct 2020) is two 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.

There is one new mystery case in Victoria in the postcode 3023, the suburbs of Deer Park, Caroline Springs, Cairnlea, Burnside, Burnside Heights and Ravenhall.

This case was notified on 30 October and has been under investigation by the Department. All close contacts have been identified, isolated and have tested negative. There are 22 people currently isolating who are linked to this case.

This case is being managed as a new infection pending further testing. The addition of this new mystery case does not materially change the risk of further COVID spread in Victoria.

The other mystery case in Victoria is in postcode 3081 – Heidelberg West, Heidelberg Heights and Bellfield. Anyone living in postcodes with a mystery case who has even the mildest of symptoms should get tested.

The Department of Health and Human Services continues to work to contain an outbreak of coronavirus in Melbourne’s northern suburbs with more than 39,100 tests processed from that area since Tuesday 20 October.

A total of 1791 test results were processed yesterday from northern suburbs testing sites in the local government areas of Banyule, Darebin, Hume, Moreland and Nillumbik.

  • 4277 cases may indicate community transmission – an increase of one since yesterday.
