The novel coronavirus forced a number of States and Territories in Australia to close their borders and restricted intra-state travel. Australia has had less than 266 deaths related to COVID-19, and new case numbers remain small.

States slowly wind back restrictions and release the brake on lockdowns. As for today, the total number of positive cases is 20K including 418 new cases since yesterday. The most affected regions in Australia are Victoria and New South Wales. There has been a steady decline in cases. However, it is too soon to tell whether this trend will be sustained.

The entire planet is now spending more time at home. Social distancing, increased attention to hygiene, wearing masks and other face covers - all measures are aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19. If you feel the first symptoms of the disease or just feel unwell, call a doctor, take care of yourself and your relatives.
