Victoria records 71 new cases of COVID-19

Victoria’s daily coronavirus numbers are in.

The state has recorded 71 new, locally acquired cases of COVID-19 and zero in hotel quarantine.

The Department of Health says of today’s new cases, 49 are linked to known outbreaks. This means there are, at this stage, 22 mystery cases.

Health authorities have not yet revealed how many cases were out and about in the community for at least some of their infectious period. They say “further case information” will be provided this morning. So stay tuned for that.

There are now 495 active cases of coronavirus in Victoria.

Today’s numbers are off the back of yesterday’s 46,446 coronavirus tests.
