"These bans, these prohibitions on non-essential events over 100 people that are indoors and non-essential events over 500 people outdoors will be the exact right step for us to take," Mr Andrews said.

"The seriousness of this virus needs to be understood by every single Victorian."

The new restrictions for indoor venues, which come into effect as of 5pm today, will mean that any gathering at venues like restaurants, pubs, or cinemas that have more than 100 people cannot occur.

Victoria's Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton said the rise of coronavirus cases in Australia was driven by travellers returning to the country from overseas.

Mr Sutton said he expected these figures to "change" in the coming weeks, following the Prime Minister's urgent call for all Australians overseas to return home.

"Australia's increase has not been driven by local transmission," Mr Sutton said.

"It has been driven by returning travellers who have been identified, and some of their close contacts that have developed illness.

"I do expect the numbers to change over the next couple of weeks, clearly with a level for travel advisory for all countries outside of Australia."
