The latest numbers are out for Victoria, with Premier Daniel Andrews announcing 238 new positive cases in the past 24 hours.
In a media conference this morning, he announced that 29 of those new cases were linked to known outbreaks and 209 were under investigation.
There has been one further death, with a woman in her nineties passing away and taking the state toll to 27.
Victoria recorded 270 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday, its third-highest daily total.
More than one million tests have been carried out since January 1, the Premier said.
He warned more restrictions would be a reality if people did the wrong thing, and thanked all those Victorians "doing the right thing."
"The time for warnings, the time for cutting people slack is over," he said.
The number of cases associated with Sydney's Crossroads Hotel has grown to 30, and the cluster is now genomically linked to the Melbourne outbreak.
Meanwhile federal health minister Greg Hunt has warned there will be more deaths in Australia from coronavirus.
"I think if we are honest, there will be more lives lost. There will be more people admitted to ICU and more on ventilation," Greg Hunt told the Nine Network on Wednesday.
"That would mean obviously no gatherings, no protests, no trade, no returnees from overseas, no family reunions."
More than one million people have now been trained in infection control, including health workers, cleaners and cooks in aged care.
An extra five million face masks will be given to health workers, aged care staff and pharmacists as the number of coronavirus cases in Australia tops 10,000.
The outbreak in Victoria continues to climb, with 270 new cases recorded on Tuesday.
Another two people died in the state, bringing the national toll to 110.
Health authorities are concerned that more than a quarter of people who have been hospitalised with the virus are in intensive care, with 21 in Victoria needing ventilators.
Melburnians have been advised they should wear face masks outside of their homes if they are in situations where social distancing is not possible, such as on public transport or in busy supermarkets.
Queensland has added the NSW cities of Campbelltown and Liverpool to its list of coronavirus hotspots, meaning anyone from there must spend 14 days in hotel quarantine if they want to enter the northern state.
