WEEKLY COVID STATS

Victorian data taken from Victorian COVID-19 Surveillance Report 03 May.

Despite recent continued increases in transmission, current indicators show low levels of COVID-19 activity in Victoria.

The number of people in hospital with COVID-19 has increased this week. The 7-day average is 160, compared to 128 last week.

The latest quantitative wastewater measures indicate there are increasing SARS-CoV-2 viral loads in Victorian wastewater in regional catchments, with fluctuating levels in metropolitan catchments.

Increasing levels of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater suggest increasing prevalence of COVID-19 infections in the community.

Deaths in the most recent 28-day period (20 Mar 2024 - 16 Apr 2024) have declined compared to the prior 28-day period (21 Feb 2024 - 19 Mar 2024), with a current 28-day total of 69.

Eagle-eyed readers will have noted we stopped reporting on both national and global COVID numbers. As of April 13, 2024, the Worldometer is no longer being updated due to the unfeasibility of providing statistically valid global totals, as the majority of countries have now stopped reporting.

We will include updated figures when they are released.
