With coronavirus hysteria growing with every daily update from the Prime Minister – Australians are now juggling with how to manage both the waves of alarming statistics and the lack of social activities.
As at 6:00am on 30 March 2020, there have been 4,093 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Australia. There have been 284 new cases since 6:00am yesterday.
Of the 4,093 confirmed cases in Australia, 16 have died from COVID-19. More than 214,000 tests have been conducted across Australia.
