Wyndham, Hobson bay, Melton and Maribyrnong council centre of concern as Victoria records 29 COVID-19 cases

Premier Daniel Andrews said he can't say if the lockdown will be lifted as per schedule on Thursday.

With a growing concern for Melbourne’s western suburbs, Victorian Health authorities have reported 29 new locally acquired COVID-19 cases.

All new locally acquired cases are linked to previously reported cases and were not in quarantine during their infectious periods.

In the last 24 hours, Victoria has conducted 43,618 test results and has administered 22,600 vaccine doses. The state entered its sixth COVID-19 lockdown at 8 pm on August 5, which will last for at least one week.

Premier Daniel Andrews said he can’t say if the lockdown will be lifted as per schedule on Thursday.

“As of now, our main focus is on getting everyone linked to the exposed sites to get tested.”

Premier Andrews added.

He said, “There is a certainty that there are more cases out there, that’s why getting tested if you’ve got any symptoms at all is so, so important.”

It was clear with the interviews conducted by the contact tracers that these cases were a result of people visiting other people in their homes despite it was not permitted during the eased restrictions.

Victoria’s Chief Health Officer said, “If ever there were a demonstration of the need to act immediately, this is it.”

“Amazing work yesterday and overnight to link everyone here and to quarantine contacts. We’ll get ahead of this. Check exposure sites, get tested, stay home. Support each other.”

There are five permissible reasons to leave home in Victoria: food and supplies, authorised work, medical care and caregiving, exercise within five kilometres of the home, and getting vaccinated – No visitors allowed at home – Mask must be worn indoors and outdoors except if an exception applies

However, the growing list of Tier1 and Tier2 exposed sites is raising concern for the health authorities.

Here is the list of 21 exposer sites added this morning.
