Breaking News: 7 News is reporting an AFL player or offical has tested positive to Coronavirus.

Broadcast Journalist Mark Stevens says multiple sources tell him a AFL player or offical has tested positive.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews earlier said 25 people tested positive for covid today.

He was asked about the reports but would not confirm the news, saying it was up to the AFL to make such an announcement.

The AFL CEO will make a media statement at 4pm.

A huge surge in community cases in recent days will lead to delays in the lifting of the lockdown and more restrictions on gatherings would kick in.
