The lowest number of Covid-19 patients has been identified in Australia in the last three weeks. Authorities expect the second wave of infections in the country’s coronavirus hotspot will come under control.
The country’s authorities confirmed the information on Thursday.
In the last 24 hours, 278 virus cases have been identified in Victoria and 21 people have died. The number of infections was 410 on the previous day. New South Wales, Australia’s most densely populated state, has seen 12 new cases. Besides, not a single patient was found in Queensland in the last 24 hours.
After controlling the coronavirus, it re-emerged in Australia. However, it has started to decrease over the last few days. At least 290 people have been infected in a single day since July 20.
“I think we should wait. We have to see what the situation is like in the next few weeks. Only then can we be sure that the coronavirus situation is getting better,” Michael Kidd, the country’s deputy chief health officer, told Channel 9.
