Two people in Melbourne’s northern suburbs have “likely” tested positive to Covid-19, according to Victorian health authorities.
The Department of Health was notified of the two probable cases on Monday morning.
The two individuals are understood to be connected.
“A full investigation is under way into these results, and initial public health actions are being put in place while both individuals isolate and are urgently retested,” the department said.
“We will communicate any specific public health actions the community needs to undertake as soon as possible when investigations and case interviews are complete.”
Victoria had gone 86 days without any cases of Covid-19 in the community.
New South Wales recorded two cases of coronavirus in the community earlier this month.
Earlier, Victorian authorities reported there were no new cases reported in the 24 hours to midnight last night other than two cases in hotel quarantine. Excluding the potential new cases in the northern suburbs, there are currently 10 active cases in Victoria.
To date, more than 370,000 doses of a coronavirus vaccine have been delivered in Victoria.
Public health experts have warned that unless the rate of vaccination is increased, Australia could face a resurgence of Covid-19 cases in winter.
More to come…
