List reveals areas most affected by COVID-19 in Victoria

The Victorian government has revealed the areas most affected by the coronavirus across the state, with Melbourne, Stonnington and Banyule among the worst hit.

A ranked list released by the Department of Health and Human Services on Saturday showed how many cases had been reported in each local government area.

Melbourne led the way with 133 cases, followed by Stonnington, south east of the CBD, with 96, and Banyule, north east of the CBD, with 95.

Other hard-hit areas included Hume, Mornington Peninsula, Monash and Frankston.

“Of the total 1817 cases, there have been 1517 in metropolitan Melbourne and 239 in regional Victoria,” the department said in a statement.

“The total number of cases is made up of 968 men and 849 women.”

Victoria was yesterday forced to reimpose some COVID-19-related restrictions after the state suffered its worst day of new cases in more than two months.

Twenty-five new cases were reported on Friday, with 14 linked to known outbreaks.

Premier Daniel Andrews said the new cases included “large family outbreaks” where the virus was spread among people in a household, and then to others in the community.

“I want to make it really clear that we have seen some families who have not done as they have been asked,” he said.

“We have seen some families who perhaps through a sense of frustration and their hope that this is over, they have pretended that it is.”

From midnight tonight, household gatherings will be restricted to a maximum of five guests, and public gatherings will have a limit of 10 people. The planned easing of restrictions for pubs and restaurants has also been deferred.

The new rules will stay in place until midnight on July 12.

Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton said Victoria had recorded more than 100 new cases over the past seven days and the reimposed restrictions would “ensure COVID-19 does not get away from us”.

“The message is clear. Don’t take this disease lightly, stay home, don’t go to work if you can work from home, don’t visit friends and family, don’t go on holiday,” he said.
