Two ‘likely’ COVID-19 cases emerge in Melbourne

Two ‘likely positive’ cases of coronavirus have been identified in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, the Victorian health department says.

Health authorities believe the two cases are connected and are putting in place public health measures while both people are tested.

On Friday, the health department admitted it named the wrong business as an exposure site during a COVID-19 outbreak earlier this month.

Initially, people who visited Woolworths Epping during a one-hour period on May 8 were advised to get tested and isolate after a Victorian man tested positive to coronavirus when he returned from hotel quarantine in South Australia.

On Friday night, the health department acknowledged its error, identifying the correct site as Woolworths Epping North, three kilometres away.
