In July and August, Australia endured a spike in COVID-19 cases. The country has since dropped down to less than 50 cases per day. Infection and death rates appear to have fallen under control and within predictable ranges. As of October 20th, Australia has experienced less than 30,000 cases and 1,000 deaths. Targeted lockdowns allowed the country to get the pandemic under control. Perhaps the country has flattened the curve.
Like other areas, Covid 19 Australia took the country by surprise in March and April. Country leaders then implemented targeted lockdowns to control the spread of infection. Social distancing and mask wearing were encouraged whenever possible. Now the country appears primed to ease lockdown restrictions. Currently, Australia appears to be a major success story with controlling the coronavirus. Nearby New Zealand has seen similar results with these successful prevention and control measures.
