VICTORIA, Australia – The COVID-19 pandemic is not close to ending for Australia after recording 475 new cases around the country. There are also 12 deaths.
Victoria remains to face an increasing number of COVID-19 cases, leading Australia nowhere close to ending the pandemic in the country.
The cases in Victoria make up the count across Australia, while others came from New South Wales or NSW.
The infection cause of the three from the NSW cases stays unknown. It’s confusing health experts and flashing concerns.
As the state endures to contend with increasing figures, school closures, and borders stoushes, here’s a snapshot of the status of COVID-19 in Australia.
Victoria listed 466 new COVID-19 cases, and it recorded 12 deaths on August 8. The latest victims are six people linked to outbreaks, which were from aged care facilities, and a 30-year-old man.
The second wave in Victoria is happening, and this is as per Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton. He presumes case numbers to decrease in the succeeding two weeks.
In New South Wales, the victim was a student, which came from the nine new COVID-19 cases listed by the state. The situation forced Tangara School for Girls in Cherrybrook to close for contact tracing and cleaning. This school was the fourth to experience closure due to a case in a week.
Over 140 people turned away from the border of Queensland after closing it. The edge was on closure from people coming from ACT, Victoria, and NSW, which is more than half of the population in Australia from 1:00 AM, August 8.
In Western Australia, Mark McGowan, the Premier, stated that it would take months or a year before WA can reopen the borders again. Before escalations intensified in Victoria, the state plans to welcome interstate travellers once more from August 8.
The chief health officer of WA suggested postponing the action to phase five despite concerns over outbursts in the eastern states.
The state will maintain the limitations on the number of Australians that can come back home from abroad until October. It’s while the COVID-19 pandemic endures as leaders decide to support the present limits, which is to make sure the hotel quarantine scheme is maintainable.
Josh Frydenberg, the federal treasurer, applied pressure on territories and states to stump up extra cash to aid the reduced cope.
