If you want to get out of these restrictions as fast as possible we all need to play our part."Mr Andrews said despite the increase, there was a "relative stability" in the rate of new infections being recorded.Coronavirus latest: Follow all the latest information in our COVID-19 live blog"We have made the point with these stay-at-home restrictions only a week old, it will take some time to bring stability to the numbers and start to see a pattern where they are driven down," he said.Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton said Victoria may not yet have hit the peak of its latest surge in cases."It's a big number, in some ways I expect it to turn around this week but there's no guarantee," he said. Melbourne's hospitals are reducing their elective surgery capacity in response to the surge in coronavirus cases.(ABC Melbourne: Kristian Silva, file photo)Professor Sutton said the virus had an average incubation period of about five or six days, which meant case numbers would not start to plateau for another few days."All of the decisions around stage four will be based on the epidemiology so seeing where the ongoing transmission is occurring," he said."We need to see where the risk will persist."Stay up-to-date on the coronavirus outbreakDownload the ABC News app and subscribe to our range of news alerts for the latest on how the pandemic is impacting the worldSurge in infections 'under control'The hotspots for new cases remain in the north-western corridor of Melbourne, but Professor Sutton said there were "dozens and dozens" of postcodes affected across metropolitan Melbourne. Yesterday police urged people to stop breaching restrictions with over 500 fines issued.(ABC News: Simon Winter)When asked if the current surge in infections was under control, Professor Sutton said "yes, I think so"."An out-of-control outbreak is where, no matter what you're doing, you're seeing an exponential increase," he said."We're seeing an increase, but it's relatively slow."Professor Sutton said there had been some positive signs that things were starting to turn around.He said "mobility data" indicated Victorians had recently reduced the number of people they were in close contact with. "We know from following up our cases, that the number of nominated close contacts is much less than it was a week or two weeks ago when it was five or six individuals," he said."It's heading down towards one. They're all good signs." While older patients with coronavirus were more likely to require hospitalisation, there were still people in their 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s in hospital, he said.Outbreaks grow at aged care homes and abattoirsHere's some context on Victoria's rising casesThe number of active coronavirus cases in Victoria has jumped fivefold in the last fortnight but, after a few days of stabilisation, some experts say stricter lockdown measures could be beginning to pay?off.Read moreThe update takes the number of active cases in Victoria to 2,128, with 109 people in hospital, 29 of whom are in intensive care.The deaths of the two men in their 80s takes Victoria's coronavirus death toll to 29.Twenty-eight new cases are connected to contained outbreaks and 289 cases are under investigation.In a statement issued on Thursday afternoon, the DHHS confirmed 388 health care workers have acquired the virus since the start of the pandemic, with 150 of those cases currently active.There have been about 160 outbreaks recorded in Victoria since the pandemic began, which are officially classed as active until they have had two weeks of zero cases.
