After more than 500 fines were handed out, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews says restrictions could be tightened if people don't stop breaking the rules.

The state recorded 238 new coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours.

A woman in her 90s died overnight – bringing the number of deaths in the state to 27. There are 105 Victorians in hospital, up 20 from yesterday, and 27 people in intensive care.

Andrews said the situation was "very, very serious" and called out more than 500 Victorians who have been fined in the past week for going against the lockdown rules.
