14 more cases, no more deaths

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.
