EXPERT OBSERVER

Very few cases of COVID-19 in Australia, with a handful of cases returning from overseas and headed to quarantine. 

 


Recoveries continue to comfortably outstrip new cases.

And, importantly, we're consistently seeing zero deaths reported on a daily basis, with few serious cases even going as far as ICU. 


There are 5 cases remaining in ICU nationally, against the expanded capacity of 7,500 beds.
