Victoria has recorded its fourth consecutive day of no new locally transmitted coronavirus cases.
On Sunday, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that while there were zero locally acquired new cases, six had been reported in hotel quarantine.
“There were 6 cases notified to the department in the past 24 hours,” DHHS said.
The hotel quarantine infections were the only cases uncovered from more than 23,000 tests.
On Saturday, Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton tweeted about the state’s positive results.
“Back from leave and great to see these results. This is top notch outbreak/cluster management,” he said.
“Early identification of first cases, huge testing response, quarantine of close contacts and contacts of contacts, and rapid publication of exposure information.”
Sutton added that it wasn’t over yet, saying “every cluster brings its own challenges”.
“We’ll likely get a couple more positive cases with Day 11 tests, but they’ll have been quarantining,” he said.
“Lots of exposure sites – casual and close contacts at these – so the risk of further transmission remains.”
He also urged Victorians to keep getting tested.
