Australia records the worst day of a pandemic, killing 80 people

Canberra: Australia reported on Friday that it was the worst day of the pandemic, with 80 coronaviruses dead. However, Dominique Perottett, the most populous New South Wales Prime Minister, said the slight reduction in hospitalization gave him some hope for the burden the outbreak puts on the health care system.

Earlier records of 78 deaths were set on Tuesday. Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been just under 3,000 COVID-19 deaths in Australia. Sydney’s hometown of New South Wales has reported record 46 deaths. They included a baby who died of COVID-19 in December, one of several historical cases investigated.

The news came after Western Australia’s Prime Minister, Mark McGowan, withdrew his promise to reopen the state to another region on February 5. At a press conference late at night on Thursday, McGowan said he would reopen the state as planned. Given the high number of COVID-19 cases in other states, it is reckless and irresponsible.

No new dates have been set for the state to ease border closures. The border decision means that neither Prime Minister Scott Morrison nor opposition leader Anthony Albanese can campaign in the state at this time. The election is scheduled to take place by May 21st.
