Meanwhile, Victoria would be facing a "world of hurt" in coming weeks if authorities had not immediately locked down the state, Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton says.
Professor Sutton says he suspects the state would already be dealing with 200 to 300 cases if it had not entered lockdown a week ago, citing the highly infectious nature of the Delta variant.
"It is a variant that takes off from dozens to thousands of cases within just a matter of weeks," he told reporters on Wednesday.
"If we'd locked down today, instead of when we did, we would get thousands of cases in the next couple of weeks. We'd be in a world of hurt ... over coming weeks if we hadn't done what we've done."

Prof Sutton said he believed community transmission had peaked but expected more household cases to emerge.
He also warned the number of people in intensive care could grow, given the severity of the delta variant.
Some 18,000 primary close contacts are self-isolating across the state, while the number of exposure sites has grown to more than 380.
