Australia Avoids Tourism Blight

02 July 2020 by News Desk

Australia tourism industry is set to avoid the worst effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new report.

Australia and New Zealand, viewed as one tourism region in the report, did not feature among the 15 countries and regions likely to be hardest hit by coronavirus restrictions.

Global tourism revenues are expected to fall by up to $US3.3 trillion with the United States standing to lose the most, according to a new UN study.

Compared to the rest of the world Australia has done a great job of containing the virus but Deputy Chief Medical Officer Michael Kidd said the past 24 hours has pushed the country’s cumulative number of coronavirus cases past 8000.

The number of COVID-19 deaths across the country remains at 104.

The first of four experimental COVID-19 vaccines being tested by Pfizer and its German partner showed encouraging results in very early testing of 45 people, the company said.

The global death toll from COVID-19 is now more than 516,000. The number of confirmed cases has passed 10.7 million and around 5.5 million people have recovered according to the Johns Hopkins University
