15 news cases, no deaths, 14-day average increase

In Victoria, 15 new cases of coronavirus have been recorded and no deaths have occurred, as the 14-day significant 14-day average has remained around 10.

Mystery cases increased by one from Sunday to 11, and the 14-day average increased slightly to 9.9.

Health officials say the 14-day average should be about 5 days for the government to consider deregulation on October 19.

Prime Minister Daniel Andrews has almost confirmed that Melbourne will not see significant relaxation of restrictions next weekend.

“I don’t think we can move as fast as we want next Sunday,” Andrews said on Saturday.

“We’ve all come a long way. The last thing I approve is to do something that might be popular, and perhaps some that might please. Action, unsafe steps.

“We will take action next Sunday, and (we) spend a great deal of time this weekend and week to determine exactly what those next steps are.

“The story of this second wave is always stubborn, and that’s exactly how it’s panned out.”

The 14-day average for Victoria is stable at 0.4, with no unexplained cases in the last 14 days.

The total number of cases in Victoria since the outbreak of the pandemic is currently around 20,300, with 810 and 189 active cases remaining as of Sunday.

Details of Monday’s new incident are expected later in the premiere daily media briefing.
