The Facts

There have been over 24,000 confirmed cases in Australia and sadly 472 people have died.

The outbreak in Victoria has meant that there are now around 5,000 active cases in Australia. Daily infection rates have remained low in all states and territories, other than Victoria. At the national level testing remains high, with more than 5.5 million tests undertaken.

National Cabinet recommitted to providing as much support as necessary to Victoria during this very difficult time. The National Cabinet noted the advice from Professor Kelly that the epidemiological situation in Victoria had improved and the numbers of cases in Victoria has reduced from its peak.

National Cabinet again agreed the need to continue to have the right controls in place to test more people, trace those who test positive and contain local outbreaks when they occur. These are fundamental to reducing the spread of the virus.

The Masks

Face Masks Save Lives – Anything that avoids aerosolised viruses from being transmitted reduces the virality of COVID-19

Face masks:
– Traps virus particles on the inside, preventing the virus particles becoming airborne.
– Prevents airborne virus particles being inhaled from the outside.
– Limit hand to face contact. The mask puts a physical barricade between possibly contaminated hands and passages to one’s lungs.
