Experts are working over the weekend to analyse infection data from the first half of Victoria's six-week lockdown, but Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews admitted further restrictions could prove a "circuit breaker" for rising COVID-19 cases.
Andrews said his government was deeply anxious that 49 "mystery cases" identified on Saturday could indicate the virus was spreading widely through the Melbourne community and confirmed he was in discussions with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison about tougher restrictions.
Melbourne's streets have been quiet this week as cases continued to spiral.
'This means that police and others have additional powers, ' the premier said.

Victoria had its second worst day of the pandemic on Friday, with 627 new cases and eight deaths.
Premier Daniel Andrews said he understood the deaths of a man and woman in their 80s and a woman in her 90s were linked to aged care, where 1008 cases are now active.
Andrews said hospital nurses had now worked more than 570 shifts in care homes.
But Victorian health authorities have been cautious, saying it was unclear if such an approach would work here due to the high levels of community transmission.
Half-way through a six-week lockdown, the infection curve in Victoria hasn't flattened.
