The hospital has established a special ward in preparation for a surge in the number of infected residents, but the state's Chief Health Officer, Professor Brett Sutton, says sometimes the safest place to treat COVID positive residents is in the home.

"I'm not going to be complacent about today's number, it is great that it is lower than our peak, but we may not have reached our peak yet", he told reporters.

Twenty-nine new cases are linked to contained outbreaks and 209 are under investigation, Premier Daniel Andrews said on Wednesday.

"One in 100 - or more - will die", he said.

Returned overseas travellers have left Western Australia with its biggest active caseload in five weeks, with all 29 people in hotel quarantine.

Another 1000 Australian Defence Force personnel will head to Victoria to help its growing coronavirus struggle, including riding with paramedics.

On the interventions by Jones, Morrison said it was true that the vast majority of people who contracted Covid-19 recovered, but "the great difficulty" with the virus was how quickly community transmission occurred.

"Sometimes the safest place for them is to remain in that facility, but we'll always make a consideration and it will be a clinical judgement of the treating doctor for those patients", he said. "I can say that they don't include playing Pokemon", Mr Nugent said, noting a group was fined for playing the game in their auto last week.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said that while state health officials were attempting to bring a number of major clusters under control, including close to 22,000 tests conducted on Monday, the scale of the outbreak had become hard to manage.

More than 150 fines have also been handed out at vehicle checkpoints across Melbourne, with 85,000 cars checked.

Australians must guard against complacency and follow social-distancing measures in a bid to keep restrictions from getting tighter, keep businesses open and get life "back to normal as much as it can in a Covid world", Morrison said on Sydney radio station 2GB Monday.

Andrews said the situation was "very, very serious" and called out more than 500 Victorians who have been fined in the past week for going against the lockdown rules.

Prof Sutton quashed rumours the state will imminently be heading into a stage four lockdown.

Victoria state last week enforced a six-week lockdown after health authorities identified breaches in hotel quarantine procedures as the catalyst for outbreaks which spread through large families within multicultural communities.
