COVID-19 latest: Authorities ‘very concerned’ as nurse tests positive
Victoria recorded five new locally acquired COVID-19 cases yesterday.
Two of the cases, both male residents at the Kings Park Apartments in Southbank, were revealed during yesterday’s COVID-19 press conference.
Of the other three cases today, two are household primary close contacts of a previously announced resident in the Southbank apartment complex.
The other new case is a fully vaccinated nurse who cared for COVID-positive Arcare residents at Epping Private Hospital.
She worked two shifts on June 9th and 14th, and is thought to have been infectious for the second shift.
COVID-19 testing commander Jeroen Weimar says authorities are “very concerned”.
The three other cases have all been linked to current known outbreaks.
