A few new clusters

COVID-19 update

Another 11,278 Coronavirus tests were carried out in Australia today, taking the total to 244,359.

Aussies have one of the highest testing rates in the world.

Today there were 309 new known cases reported, taking the cumulative total to 4,559.

There have been a couple of new notable clusters, including a spike at Adelaide Airport, with half a dozen baggage handlers reportedly having tested positive.

Airports do seem to be a key risk area, alongside cruise ships, of course, with several new cases today linked to the Ruby Princess. 

So this isn't enough to change the trend just yet.

But still there was no real deterioration again, today with new known cases tracking lower than 8 days ago. 

Stay safe everyone!
