FED: Too soon to drop COVID-19 restrictions

Sunday, April 05, 2020.

At least 34 Australians have now died from COVID-19, but a number of states have reported lower numbers of cases.

But authorities are warning that that does not mean an easing of the social distancing and stay-at-home measures put in place to keep down the spread of the potentially fatal virus.

The daily rate of cases has been gradually easing from as much as 30 per cent a couple of weeks ago to single figures in recent days.

Queensland reported a fall in confirmed cases for the fourth day in a row, with just nine reported overnight. Victoria recorded just 20 new cases, while NSW - the hardest hit state - recorded 87 new cases, bringing the state's total to 2580.
