Australia witnessed the deadliest day since the outbreak of the COVID-19 reporting 25 deaths in the past 24 hours.

According to the country's health authorities, 290 new cases of the infection were also reported in the same period. Most of the cases – 282 – were detected in Victoria state.

The country's total caseload has climbed to 23,559 while the death toll has risen to 421. Over 17 deaths were reported on Sunday.
Victoria had reported 21 deaths on Wednesday, the previous highest until today in the country. The local health authorities have deployed more than 2,600 contact tracers in Victoria to identify COVID-19 cases.

In a message to people of Victoria, Australia's Health Minister Greg Hunt said: "It is 'okay not to be okay' in light of the coronavirus pandemic." He announced an additional increase in funding for mental health support.

The government will build 15 new adult mental health centers -- nine in urban metropolitan areas and six in rural and regional areas.
