Victoria, the country’s second most populated state recorded 33 positive cases for coronavirus in the last 24 hours.
This is now the ninth consecutive day of double-digit cases in the region and comes weeks after the government began to ease lockdown restrictions.
The state Premier, Daniel Andrews said: “We have ambulances and other vans that will literally be at the end of people’s streets.
“We will see these case numbers go up in coming days.”
The state also has 200 of the country’s 270 coronavirus cases.
Overall, the country has recorded 104 deaths from the virus combined with 7,500 infections.
With the number of cases rising in the state, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has insisted safeguards remain to stop the spread getting out of control across the country.
He also insisted the country must reopen its economy as the virus will still be present for some time.
Mr Morrison said: “We’ve gotta live alongside COVID-19.
“It’s not going anywhere.
“We’ve gotta keep forging ahead.”
