Victoria has recorded 14 new virus cases and no new deaths on Saturday, with fears lockdown could now be extended as figures remain in the double-digits.
Melbourne‘s all-important 14-day virus average increased by 0.1 to 9.5, and is still hovering too far above the safe threshold.
Health authorities have implored the 14-day average must be around five for the Government to consider easing restrictions on October 19.
The Doherty Research Institute said the chances of reaching an average five COVID-19 cases by mid-October were under 50 per cent.
Regional Victoria‘s 14-day average is 0.4.
The DHHS added more locations to its coronavirus exposure hotspot list overnight, with anyone who visited the Altona Beach foreshore and pier on October 2 between 1-5pm urged to get tested.
Anyone who attended Priceline, 1239 Nepean Highway, in Cheltenham on October 5 between 12.50-1.05pm and Ferguson Plarre, 1341 Dandenong Rd, at Chadstone on October 5-7 Oct between 5.30am-2.30pm should also get tested.
Daniel Andrews will front the media later on Saturday.
