    Using the data provided each day by Victoria's DHHS I've just undertaken an analysis of how the virus spread:

    2. On June 1st, the postcodes with most active cases were Melbourne [13], INTERSTATE [ie. CBD hotels - 10], Casey [10], Brimbank [9] and Moreland [9] ... Greater Geelong & Colac [0], Regional Victoria but not Geelong-Colac [2], Aged Care Homes [0], Unknown [71]

    * Victoria still had 56 active cases as of May 16th - the viruses two week incubation period led to 370 cases by June 1st [that period was significant]
    * Wave 2 started with Melbourne's hotels housing infected people from interstate and quickly spread to inner suburbs and to the outer suburbs of Casey & Whittlesea [workers travelling from those hotels?]
    * Al Taqua College has 184 active cases with meatworks and supermarket distribution centres experiencing large numbers of active cases.
    * During the Victorian school holidays active case numbers exploded into the Geelong-Colac area and into aged cared homes.
    * Melbourne's lockdown of inner city towers on July 4th prevented numbers therein exploding [some inner city postcodes stabilised].
    * Melbourne's lockdown starting July 9th did not prevent an explosion in Aged Care home infections but did slow the rate of increase in active cases.
    * The rate of increase in active cases has slowed; Brimbank, Casey and Moreland are still experiencing many new cases each day though..
    * Except for the Geelong-Colac area and nearby, regional Victoria has remained almost free of active cases.
    * Active cases throughout the federal government's $For $Profit aged care sector are still not under control.
