The global death toll from the coronavirus has risen to 74,395; more than 1,339,000 people worldwide have now been diagnosed with the respiratory illness, including 5,795 in Australia. The nation’s death toll from the virus has risen to 41, including a 12th passenger from the ill-fated ‘Ruby Princess’ cruise ship. However, Australia’s rate of infection has slowed to 1.7 per cent, with just 104 new confirmed cases on 6 April. Deputy Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly has reiterated the need to keep complying with social distancing rules in order to continue to curb the virus’s spread.
