New cases lowest in weeks
By 6.45pm today there were just 96 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Australia, representing another decent drop from 119 yesterday.
Still, this could be the lowest figure in 22 days, which is fared better than anyone could have dared to hope at the end of March.
The government will hold the line over the long Easter weekend, strongly encouraging people to stay at home and continue to flatten the curve.
Some states and territories are now seeing such low results that at some point a 'soft reopening' of their local economies may soon be countenanced (albeit with the borders seemingly likely to remain closed).
Australia has now seen 50 deaths from COVID-19, largely amongst the elderly, while ICU cases fell from 93 to 86.
It's clearly an important long weekend ahead, but it's been heartening to see further progress.
