From 20:00 on October 30, 2020, to 20:00 on October 31, 2020, Australia recorded its first day of zero local cases of COVID-19. This is the first time that it so happened that no COVID-19 pandemic cases were recorded since June 9, 2020.
The epicenter of Australia’s second wave of COVID-19, the state of Victoria, recorded no cases of the pandemic for 2 days in a row after a 112-day lockdown. This has brought back confidence among health officials who have hinted at more easing of travel restrictions in the coming days. This is also a great booster for immigration Australia who can now bring more immigrants into confidence.
Australia has recorded lesser COVID-19 cases than other countries since the beginning of the pandemic. There have only been 27,500 infections and 900 deaths since the pandemic started.
Preventive measures like proactive testing, lockdowns, and contact tracing have been undertaken to contain the COVID-19 virus. The strictest preventive measures were implemented in the state of Victoria. There, measures like curfew and stay-at-home were implemented without compromise.
The state of Victoria and the city of Melbourne had reopened by the end of October 2020. There were no community-transmitted cases of COVID-19 since June 2020. People could travel outside their homes and visit restaurants, retail stores, bars, and cafes. Groups of 10 could gather too.
Daniel Andres, the Victorian Premier, was also all praise for the residents of the state for following the preventive rules for COVID-19. Their cooperation has made the state fit for a “COVID-normal Christmas”.
