Meanwhile, Prime Minister Daniel Andrews confirmed on Monday that 177 new cases of coronavirus were registered overnight in Victoria.
Prime Minister Andrews said that one of the cases is a returned traveler in hotel quarantine, 25 are linked to known outbreaks, and 151 continue to be investigated.
Victoria now has 1,612 active cases, with 72 people in the hospital and 17 of them in intensive care.
The new figure comes after the state has seen more than 200 cases in consecutive days.
Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said he had “a bit of optimism” when looking at Monday’s numbers, but he would like to see a week of declining numbers.
“I won’t be complacent about today’s number. It’s great that it is below our peak. But it may not be our highlight yet, “he said.
