Liputan6.com, Sydney- Australian authorities reported that the number of new Corona COVID-19 infections at the epicenter of the outbreak in the country had decreased on Thursday (13/8). This also raises hopes of a second wave of viruses under control.

278 new daily infections were recorded in Victoria State, which was down from 410 the day before and was the lowest daily increase in cases in more than three weeks.

Meanwhile, Victoria has also recorded eight deaths due to the Corona COVID-19 Virus over the past 24 hours, as quoted from Channel News Asia, Thursday (13/8/2020).

On August 12, the state which is home to the city of Melbourne reported 21 deaths from the Corona COVID-19 virus, marking Australia’s deadliest day of the pandemic so far.

Last week, a new outbreak in Melbourne required authorities to impose a curfew that tightened restrictions on people’s daily movements, and ordered large parts of the country’s economy to shut down.

Caution has also been put in place in the state of New South Wales, after reporting new daily infections among teenagers in recent weeks.

Officials also warned that people who were unable to adhere to social distancing guidelines could trigger transmission, tracking the virus into action immediately.

The deputy chief medical officer of the nation, Michael Kidd, told the Australian Broadcasting Corp television station, “People only have to look over the border in Victoria to see what happens when they don’t comply with physical distancing restrictions.”

“The same consequences could occur in New South Wales, as we saw in Victoria,” said Michael Kidd.

It is known that New South Wales has not reported new daily cases and death tolls for Thursday, with the Corona COVID-19 Virus believed to have been effectively handled in other Australian states and territories.

Currently, Australia has recorded more than 22,000 cases and 352 deaths due to the Corona COVID-19 Virus since the start of the pandemic.
