COVID-19 latest: Pfizer walk-ins suspended as two new cases detected
Victoria recorded two new locally acquired cases of COVID-19 yesterday.
Both cases are children who are primary close contacts of known positives and have had no community exposure during their infectious period.
One child has been linked to the Reservoir outbreak and the other has been linked to the City of Melbourne case.
Residents in a low-rise townhouse complex in Melbourne’s inner-south have been asked to isolate after two residents living in the complex returned positive tests.
Department of Health nurses are on site and a pop-up testing site has been set up nearby.
Meanwhile, the Pfizer vaccine is no longer available for walk-in appointments at mass vaccination centres because the supply is required for second doses of the vaccine for Victorians who have already received their first jab.
Four new overseas acquired cases were also detected in hotel quarantine yesterday.
There were 16,952 test results received yesterday and 13,764 vaccine doses administered.
The two new locally-acquired cases are primary close contacts of existing cases, with no community exposure during their infectious period. [2/2]
