This Interactive Map Shows Victoria's COVID-19 Cases by Local Government Area

As the entirety of metropolitan Melbourne enters stage four lockdown and regional Victoria stage three, the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is continuing to release an interactive daily report of COVID-19 in the state, with a daily updated map of the confirmed cases broken down by area.

Live on the DHHS website, the state-wide map shows the total number of confirmed cases by local government area. Thanks to a handy colour code — with areas designated specific hues depending on how many cases they have — it's easy to see which parts of the state are 'hotspots'. In the inner city, for example, Wyndham, Brimbank and Hume have the highest total cases with 1397, 1251 and 1114 respectively, as of 7.58am on Wednesday, August 5.

Those who've been keeping an eye on the map will notice that the aforementioned colour code has changed since it launched. Instead of being green in 'low' areas and red in 'high', it's now all purple, getting darker as the number of cases gets higher.

Elsewhere in the interactive report, you can see a breakdown of the cases by age group and sex, as well how the cases were acquired, how many people have recovered and how many tests have been administered.

At the moment, metropolitan Melbourne is expected to stay under strict stage four stay-at-home orders until at least Sunday, September 13. Masks are also mandatory when you leave the house and if you break isolation orders you can now be slapped with a $5000 on-the-spot fine.

To find out more about the status of COVID-19 in Victoria and have a look at the interactive daily report, head to the Victorian Department of Health and Services website.
