A MELBOURNE woman became the sixth person to be killed in the Bourke St massacre when she died in hospital on Monday night.

Police confirmed a 33-year-old Blackburn South woman died just before 7.30pm.

The devastating news comes more than a week after the tragedy unfolded in Melbourne's packed city centre, and will trigger another wave of grieving for the victims of the rampage.

Among those killed when a car ploughed through Bourke St on January 20 were Matthew Si, 33, Jess Mudie 22, 10-year-old Thalia Hakin, three-month-old Zachary Bryant and a 25-year-old Japanese man who was understood to have been in Australia for about a year and studying in Melbourne.

Hospitals have treated 37 other people injured during the incident, with nine patients remaining in care.

One of the patients remains in a critical condition at Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Windsor man Dimitrious "Jimmy" Gargasoulas, 26, has been charged with five counts of murder with other charges pending and was remanded to appear in court in August.

Broken-hearted Melburnians left thousands of floral and written tributes for the victims, which will be collected by Red Cross and State Emergency services on Tuesday.

Hand-written notes, flowers and teddy bears left for Thalia and Zachary will be collected starting from the GPO building and moving towards Bourke St.

On Sunday the brother of the man accused of killing five people in the tragic CBD massacre expressed his remorse to the families affected.

Thalia Hakin, 10, has been remembered as a “beautiful girl”.

Angelo Gargasoulas wrote on Facebook his thoughts were with everyone involved.

"To all the families of the victims involved in last Fridays tragedy, my heart goes out to you and for all those still fighting in hospital, my thoughts are with you and your recovery," Mr Gargasoulas wrote earlier today.

Dimitrious Gargasoulas allegedly knifed younger brother Angelo on Friday morning before setting off on a 12-hour rampage.
