Social distancing is holding new COVID-19 infection levels low enough to eliminate the virus from mainland Australia, new federal government modelling shows.
While the expert team behind the modelling has not estimated a date by which the virus could be defeated, they project it could be months away, rather than weeks.
The model suggests that every 10 people infected currently spread the virus to five more people, on average. At that level, the virus would eventually be unable to circulate and would die out within Australia.
