New Stage Four lockdown rules in Melbourne from Sunday night

Victoria's latest deaths take the national toll to 208, with six of the seven connected to the age care sector.

Andrews said his government was deeply anxious that 49 "mystery cases" identified on Saturday could indicate the virus was spreading widely through the Melbourne community and confirmed he was in discussions with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison about tougher restrictions.

The state's chief health officer, Brett Sutton, said an estimated 20,000 cases were averted during Stage 3 restrictions, but flattening the curve to hundreds of new cases a day was "intolerable".

A state of disaster and new restructions will come into play from 6pm tonight, Sunday August 2.

The premier declared a state of disaster yesterday in addition to the state of emergency and said he had been left with "no alternative" but to impose the harsher restrictions on Melbourne.

"Where you slept last night is where you'll need to stay for the next six weeks", Andrews said, announcing a curfew between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. beginning Sunday evening and moving Metropolitan Melbourne into stage four lockdown measures.

Andrews said the stage 4 restrictions being introduced in metropolitan Melbourne will mean people cannot be more than 5km from home for the goal of shopping and only one person can go shopping once per day.

Only one person per household will be allowed to go to the shops.

Recreational activities will also be banned with people limited to one hour of exercise a day in their local area. The Night Network will be suspended, and public transport services will be reduced during curfew hours.

Couples are allowed to visit each other if they live outside a 5km radius.

From midnight on Wednesday, regional Victoria will move to stage three restrictions. "Either who they got it from or where or how", Premier Andrews said.

He said this was important to prevent a situation where the virus transmission was driven down in metropolitan Melbourne but continued to grow in regional parts of the state.

A new spike in coronavirus cases has prompted Australia's second-biggest city, Melbourne, to go into a stage-four lockdown.

The latest restrictions will remain in place until September 13.

Andrews said further restrictions for Victoria businesses will be announced on Monday.

Residents of Metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire are nearly halfway through what was meant to be a six-week lockdown under stage three stay-at-home orders.

"We are holding the line and doing OK but I can not stress enough that the next few weeks will make or break us, in terms of the way we get through this pandemic", she told reporters in Sydney.
