Meanwhile Health Minister Jenny Mikakos asked Victorians not to put off seeking medical care.

“It’s important that whilst we remain vigilant against coronavirus, that we don’t neglect our other health needs. My health services are reporting that there are declining and concerning attendances at our emergency departments, and this does suggest that people are putting off seeking urgent and important medical care that could make that critical difference to their life”, she said.
