Australia records zero new community cases

It’s official. Australia has recorded a day of no new community cases, for the first time in nearly five months.

With zero new cases in Victoria, and zero community transmissions in NSW, the country recorded no new locally acquired Covid-19 cases in the 24 hours until 8pm yesterday – a feat last achieved on 9 June.

The federal health minister, Greg Hunt, confirmed the statistic with the national incident centre.
