For Magnet - "Active cases is a calculation based on total cases excluding persons recovered and lives lost, it does not mean that these cases are infectious. 417" not 1000. Please don't guess - fake news.

Australia - great country and great people. Nice to see a picture of a peaceful city without armed, violent mobs roaming through the neighborhoods terrorizing ordinary folks...with Confederate flags and Trump 2020 banners...

Good luck to Australia. All nations are going to have to slowly work their way back to re-opening to preserve, or rather minimize the damage to their economies while simultaneously working to contain the Covid19 spread. A tough task for every country and their governments.

The state's and territories have done really well so have Aussies in general most have followed the rules. 93% of Australiana are happy with all Governments response to the covid 19 pandemic. Only 50 odd people currently in hospital, listen to the experts do the right thing all should be good, time to open up, slowly.

Too soon. Still over 1000 active cases in NSW alone. It only takes 1 to spread and cause another wave. It's purely a move to keep the economy alive at this stage.
