Premier Daniel Andrews will on Tuesday explain how long Victoria’s lockdown will be extended after his announcement on Monday that the state hadn’t done enough to stamp out an outbreak of the “wildly infectious” Delta coronavirus variant.

Andrews confirmed Victoria’s lockdown – which was due to end at 11.59pm on Tuesday night – would need to be extended after the state recorded four new local COVID-19 cases in addition to the 13 infections reported earlier on Monday.

He said there were still “far too many” cases of community transmission for the statewide lockdown to lift, adding that the easing of restrictions in regional communities by Tuesday night was impossible to do.

“We are running alongside this virus, but we’re not yet in front of it,” he told reporters on Monday.

“I don’t want a situation where we fail to extinguish this, we fail to end these chains of transmission, only to open and then be closed again a short time thereafter,” he said.
