The global death toll from the coronavirus has risen to 125,896; more than 1,990,000 people worldwide have been diagnosed with the respiratory illness. There are 6,400 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Australia, and the nation’s death toll has risen to 62. However, the coronavirus curve continues to flatten, with only 36 new cases reported nationwide on 15 April. Microbiologist Peter Collignon warns that the virus is unlikely to be completed eradicated in Australia, and that some lockdown restrictions may need to remain in place until at least the end of winter. Meanwhile, the death toll in the US has risen to 25,830 after an additional 2,190 deaths were reported in the last day.
