COVID-19 latest: Victoria records NO new community cases
Victoria has recorded no new local cases of COVID-19.
It’s the second day in a row the state has recorded no new community cases.
Another case of coronavirus has been picked up in hotel quarantine.
More than 30,000 test results were received in the past 24 hours.
Health Minister Martin Foley addressed the media on Thursday morning and said genomic sequencing confirmed that all of the new cases that have been tested so far have been linked.
“15 of the 19 cases associated with the Holiday Inn have had their genomic sequencing link the outbreak, as we suspected, to the Holiday Inn,” he said.
“The other four won’t be far away.”
It comes as Victoria returns to a “COVID-normal” life, with a snap five-day lockdown over.
Yesterday there were no local cases and 1 case in hotel quarantine reported. 30,261 test results were received. Thank you to those who got tested – #EveryTestHelps.
