If you’re looking for a breakdown of coronavirus cases by neighbourhood in Melbourne, Victoria’s Department of Health and Human Services has released one.
This interactive daily report is of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Victoria. It’s updated daily and is compiled by the DHSS based on data that's made available to them.
Confirmed cases are those who have had a positive lab test result for Covid-19. Plus, it’s important to note that the charts and figures show the residential location of the confirmed case – namely, it isn’t necessarily where the person is residing right now, but where their residential address is.
As of today, May 8, there are 1,454 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Victoria with 1,322 people recovered. Currently, the government area with the highest number of cases is Stonnington (90 confirmed cases) followed by Banyule (86), Melbourne CBD (77) and Boroondara (65).

Remember: there are currently only four reasons you should be leaving your house: for food and supplies, medical care and care giving, exercise, and for work or education (if you cannot do so at home).
Update 29/04/2020: The federal government's contact tracing app has now launched. CovidSafe piggybacks on a smartphone's Bluetooth signal to establish a 'digital' handshake with nearby devices. This logs the people a user has been in close contact with (less than 1.5 metres apart) for more than 15 minutes. If one of those close contacts subsequently tests positive, all those who are deemed at risk of having been exposed are then alerted, so they can seek testing and begin self-isolating.
