International modelling shows that Australia has a coronavirus detection rate of 84 per cent, compared with 12 per cent for the US and just 3.6 per cent for the UK. However, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has indicated that lockdown restrictions are likely to remain in place for at least another four weeks. He has outlined a three-stage process for easing the restrictions; this will be based on increased testing for the virus, improved tracing of virus cases and action to contain coronavirus ‘hotspots’. Morrison argues that easing the restrictions too soon risks further infections, with resulting health and economic consequences.
