Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy recently said that Australia’s progress on containing the coronavirus will become clearer within a week or so, as people returning from overseas are skewing the infection data at present. Health experts state that more data on the rate of community transmission will be needed before any decisions are made about relaxing the coronavirus restrictions. Health Minister Greg Hunt says the nation will be able to commence lifting the restrictions once the rate of community transmission is under control, although he warns that the restrictions are unlikely to be eased for some time.
