Australian authorities opened a pop-up coronavirus testing clinic at Sydney's Bondi beach on Wednesday, as the country's central bank warned the economic fallout from the pandemic could last for more than a year.

What Australian authorities need to do is put up a HUGE sign advertising the location of the pictured pop up testing clinic. That might remind a few of the beach goers about the dangers of ignoring the new social distancing rules.

The rate of growth in new infections across Australia has slowed to just under 10% over the past three days, from 25-30% a week ago, raising hopes that Australia is starting to "flatten the curve".

Well done....pop up & drive in clinics opened up in a number of location within days...yet Japan,s authorities still dither, always late , always impotent.

What point are you trying to make? Aussies are doing better job than almost anyone in flattening the curve...went in early, shut things down pretty aggresively whilst infections were still low and are reaping the rewards.
