The child who is among today’s two new cases in Victoria is three years old and contracted coronavirus after attending a private family function in Coburg.

The three-year-old attends Goodstart Early Learning Centre in Glenroy in Melbourne’s north.

Authorities have now turned their attention to the child’s mother, who may also have the virus.

The mother has returned three separate test results in the last 24 hours, all with differing conclusions.

“Our epidemiologists and specialists are working with her and with our labs to be clear about the nature of what possible infection she may have, whether she is at the start of our infectious period or whether she is coming towards the end,” Victoria’s testing commander Jeroen Weimar said.

“Serology is being done, and we will work out over the next few hours exactly where this individual stands. She does have some workplace contacts, particularly with Alfred Health, and we are working closely with them to do preliminary testing, precautionary testing, of her potential contacts.”
