Media release
11 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 12th straight day where Victoria has recorded zero daily new cases or deaths.

The average number of cases diagnosed in the last 14 days (27 Oct – 9 Nov 2020) for metropolitan Melbourne is 0.3 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 (25 Oct – 7 Nov 2020) is one 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.

The Department of Health and Human Services is working closely with South Australian health authorities in investigating a South Australian resident, who has been working in Victoria, and who has tested positive for coronavirus in South Australia.

The case is an aged care worker who previously tested positive in Victoria in early August and isolated for the full period required. They recovered and were cleared of the virus later that month. The case has not worked in aged care since mid-October.

The case tested positive in South Australia on 9 November as part of their entry screening processes.  The case is not showing symptoms.

The case is likely to represent intermittent shedding following a previous infection but through an abundance of caution, and while further investigations are underway, the public health response across the two jurisdictions will align. As a result, at this time, we are asking people who visited Melbourne Central on 8 November between 2pm and 5pm or were at Terminal 4 of Melbourne Airport on 9 November between noon and 1pm to be alert to even the mildest of symptoms and seek immediate testing if they become unwell.

Two positive swab results were received by the department yesterday from individuals who were recently cleared as confirmed cases of COVID-19. An expert review panel considered both cases and determined that they were most likely due to persistent shedding from the previous infection.

While these cases are not considered active cases, out an abundance of caution additional testing is being undertaken and the individuals will remain in isolation until these results are received.

In Victoria at the current time:

  • 4277 cases may indicate community transmission – no change since yesterday
  • 4 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 · 19,522 people have recovered from the virus
  • A total of 3,342,896 test results have been received which is an increase of 19,986 since yesterday.

Of the total cases:

  • 18,953 cases are from metropolitan Melbourne, while 1195 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.
