Out of about 500 home visits to Australians with a positive test result, Mr Andrews said there were more than 130 people who weren't home.

“It’s simply unacceptable to have this virus and not be at home,” he said on Friday.

The Premier said more than 100 people were referred to Victoria Police for further investigation yesterday alone.

Premier Andrews revealed another 627 cases of the virus and eight fatalities in the past 24 hours, four of which were linked to the aged care sector.

The Premier said aged care residents represented 928 active cases and health workers 1030 cases.

Victoria’s total death toll since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak now sits at 112.
