Victoria’s state of emergency has been extended for a further four weeks, as a plane carrying more than 100 stranded cruise ship passengers infected with COVID-19 touched down in the state.

“These people were tested and known to be positive, and none of these people have been let into the community,” he told reporters on Sunday.
Hundreds of people were infected with the virus and more than a dozen Ruby Princess passengers died after the ship docked in Sydney last month.
Mr Andrews confirmed a small group of New Zealand passengers from the ship are now on a charter flight home, while the remaining Australians have been taken to hotels to start 14 days of quarantine.
It comes after a man died while being quarantined in a Melbourne hotel overnight.
“Police are not treating the death as suspicious at this time,” a health department spokesperson said on Sunday.
“The coroner will be investigating the incident and as such we are unable to comment further.”
Mr Andrews said the man did not have coronavirus and was subject to a daily health check.
“I am confident and I have sought to confirm my confidence in the last 24 hours with all the arrangements we have in place,” he said.
Mr Andrews announced Victoria’s state of emergency will be extended until midnight on May 11, with measures designed to “flatten the curve” of coronavirus likely to remain in place well past that date.
With just three new cases of coronavirus recorded on Sunday, the premier said restrictions were working.
“We are aggressively tracing our outbreaks, and making sure this virus does not get away from us,” he said.
“If it does, our health system will simply be overrun and people will die.”
Victoria’s total recorded COVID-19 cases stands at 1268, with 14 deaths.
Twenty-eight patients remain in hospital, with 16 of those in intensive care.
Mental Health Minister Martin Foley announced a $59.4 million package for mental health organisations and practitioners to help meet demand during the pandemic.
Mr Foley said one in four calls to Lifeline relate to the virus, while Beyond Blue had experienced a 30-35 per cent increase in calls.
“They are answering calls day in, day out, from anxious, worried and increasingly unwell Victorians in relation to their mental health and wellbeing,” he said.
Meanwhile, more than 1200 Australian nationals have been flown home from overseas to land at Tullamarine this weekend, with flights from India and Peru touching down on Friday and Saturday.
Australia’s national death toll from the virus stands at 59.
