9 June 2020

The total number of coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Victoria is 1,687, with no new cases reported yesterday.

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

There have been 178 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Victoria that have been acquired through unknown transmission. There are currently 64 active cases in Victoria.

Currently seven people are in hospital, including one patient in intensive care. 1,602 people have recovered.

Of the total 1,687 cases, there have been 1,401 in metropolitan Melbourne and 236 in regional Victoria. Several cases remain under investigation. The total number of cases is made up of 894 men and 793 women. Almost 548,000 tests have been processed to date.

"Recording zero cases today is encouraging, but this pandemic is far from over and now is not the time for complacency. We must remain vigilant," Victoria's Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton said.

"Thanks to Victorians playing their part, staying at home and getting tested, we have made some great progress in slowing the spread of coronavirus.

"Our low rate of community transmission means we have been able to ease some restrictions.

"You can have up to 20 people in your home or in a public place. Restaurants, cafes and pubs can have up to 20 customers dine in, and businesses such as beauty therapists can see clients again.

"Although it's tempting to rush out or have your friends over or head out to a cafe, it is important that we all still use common sense. In all your activities, be considered, be cautious and stay safe. And if you don't have to do it – don't.

"By doing the right thing, we can continue to keep one another safe. 

"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 protest in the city last Saturday and develop any symptoms, no matter how mild, it is critically important that you get tested."
