Victoria has recorded another 43 coronavirus infections and nine fatalities, taking the state's death toll to 710.

Authorities says they're concerned that there's been a significant decline in non-coronavirus presentations at the state's hospital emergency departments during the typical annual peak in August.

Health Minister Jenny Mikakos says while much of the decrease can be attributed to an 80 per cent fall in yearly flu numbers, it's clear people are putting off treatment for other serious conditions.

"Deferred care can lead to worse health outcomes, longer hospitalisation stays, it can lead to tragedy. We are urging Victorians to continue to visit their GP, to take their regular medication, and if they have any lumps or bumps or symptoms that they are concerned about, please do not defer seeking medical care." 

Residents in metropolitan Melbourne are subject to stay-at-home orders and can only leave home for food and essential supplies, work, study, exercise or care responsibilities. People are also advised to wear masks in public.

People in Australia must stay at least 1.5 metres away from others. Check your state’s restrictions on gathering limits. 

If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, stay home and arrange a test by calling your doctor or contact the Coronavirus Health Information Hotline on 1800 020 080.
