Media release
8 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 ninth straight day where Victoria has recorded zero daily new cases or deaths.

Today is another important milestone with no active coronavirus cases remaining among healthcare workers. 

The average number of cases diagnosed in the last 14 days (25 Oct – 7 Nov 2020) for metropolitan Melbourne is 0.4 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 (23 Oct – 5 Nov 2020) is 2 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 are no active cases linked to an outbreak in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. 50,147 tests have been processed from that area since Tuesday 20 October. 

A total of 2,192 test results were processed yesterday and a further 377 tests were processed this morning from northern suburbs testing sites in the local government areas of Banyule, Darebin, Hume, Moreland and Nillumbik.

We still urge people from Melbourne’s north to get tested immediately if you have any symptoms and stay home until they receive their results.

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 3,299,302 test results have been received which is an increase of 16,865 since yesterday.

Of the total cases:

  • 18,955 cases are from metropolitan Melbourne, while 1197 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.
