Victorian Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton says there are “some bright spots” in the state’s current COVID outbreak despite recording 76 new cases.

“As I said yesterday, it’s a very challenging situation but the earlier outbreaks are maturing and we really do have the public health response around them – Glenroy West School, The MyCentre outbreak in Broadmeadows, and St Kilda – really down to those last cases all in quarantine now,” Professor Sutton said.

He further said the 36 cases in isolation while infectious is a “really good sign”.

“The comparatively large number of cases in quarantine today is really a good sign and there will be more I’m sure identified in that category.”

He also said there has also been a “fantastic” level of community engagement with sports clubs and leaders, faith leaders, and local doctors assisting efforts to curb the outbreak.
