Victorian Health Minister Jenny Mikakos has confirmed the person was released from the Royal Melbourne Hospital yesterday, after testing negative for the virus three times.

It comes as the second wave of Australians that were stranded in Wuhan - the epicentre of the coronavirus - arrived on Christmas Island this morning.
