COVID-19 cases in Australia have fallen with fewer than 100 new cases recorded for the second consecutive day. New South Wales had 13 new COVID-19 cases. There was 70 in Victoria, and two in Queensland.
Deputy Chief Medical Officer Michael Kidd acknowledged the ‘dramatic’ fall in case totals with 771 in the past week compared to 1288 the week before, and 3645 in the two weeks prior to that.
Professor Kidd said six million tests had been carried out nationwide and urged Australians to remain vigilant about testing even for mild symptoms.
A new Ipsos poll suggests Australians will be as diligent with the take up of a COVID-19 vaccine as they have been with testing.
Nine out of 10 Australians surveyed said they would get vaccinated.
The global death toll from COVID-19 has passed 850,000. The number of confirmed cases is almost 25.5 million and more than 16.8 million people have recovered, according to Johns Hopkins University
